DESCRIPTION

Transparent Cities is a collaborative work of music and video by Madison Brookshire, April Guthrie, Michael Pisaro, and Cassia Streb. Reflecting and reporting on the city of Los Angeles, the performance examines the rhythms of the city using layers of video and sound. Its long, contemplative recordings, juxtaposed with live performance, become a meditation on the complex relationship between reality and recording, presence and absence, lived experience and re-presented time.

A full description of the piece can be found here.

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Tickets are required, and are available at the Billy Wilder Theater Box Office one hour prior to start time. Limit one ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.

Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6:00pm.

This performance is being produced as part of the Hammer Museum’s Artist Residency Program.

The Hammer Museum’s Artist Residency Program was initiated with funding from the Nimoy Foundation and is supported through a significant grant from the James Irvine Foundation.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
