Litia Perta will be giving a writing workshop from 11:00AM - 12:00PM in the shoot room on Wednesday 23 January. This will be followed by a lunchtime barbeque/outdoor food tasty snack situation and 5 visits.
Each person who gets a meeting is asked to complete a 10 minute writing exercise before your meeting. I will get the exercise to you very soon. It will be fun and useful.

Based on his interest in multiple reference systems, Edgar Arceneaux constructs in his drawings, installations and video and film works a complex network of associations, connotations, and altered levels of meaning to undermine any conventional and linear narration. In an experimental field of comparisons, fractions, and combinations of various perspectives, generally accepted codes are questioned and usual patterns of perception destabilized. Arceneaux exploreS the conditions of what it means to be human precisely at the interface of the lasting and the transitory, image and text, abstraction and figuration. Works from his project Borrowed Sun invoke jazz musician Sun Ra, conceptual artist Sol LeWitt, and the Earth's sun. He also made a video installation starring David Allen Grier titled "The Alchemy of Comedy...Stupid." He is the co-founder of the Watts House Project, renovating residential properties and providing programs and venues for community involvement in the neighborhood around the historic Watts Towers.
Edgar Arceneaux received his MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 2001. His work has been shown at the Whitney Biennial, SFMOMA, The Studio Museum of Harlem, The Hammer, The MOCA's of LA/Detroit/Austria, The Kitchen and on and on and on.
Edgar Arceneaux will be doing 2 studios visits that are ONE HOUR EACH! And then he will give a lecture at 7PM. Sign ups begin TUESDAY 8 JANUARY at 11AM.
