Summer Solstice Kickoff 2010

Monday, June 21, 2010
8—10 pm
LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions)
6522 Hollywood Blvd. | Los Angeles, CA 90028

As part of LACE’s year-long initiative, Public Interest, Les Figues Press is curating a series of writers-in-residency. This series, Not Content, will bring together an international group of writers who will investigate the ways in which language functions within public and private spheres and within the tenuous space between these real and imagined realms.

The Summer Solstice Kickoff will feature work and/or performances by our first three writers-in-residence: Divya Victor, Douglas Kearney and Vanessa Place.

About Public Interest

Designed to animate Hollywood with a series of public projects, Public Interest is a year-long initiative that showcases contemporary art, architecture and design practices that challenge standard notions of public space and demonstrate the role creative actions can play in bringing out the vibrancy of a place and its people.

For Public Interest: The Summer Cycle, LACE’s galleries will be transformed into the Public Interest headquarters featuring installations created by Robert Ransick, Heather Roberge, and Kim Schoenstadt along with a LACE store intervention organized by curator Emma Gray. These projects will set the stage for a robust calendar of public programs, including performative and participatory projects organized by artist and educator Michael Ano (ASAP), Les Figues Press and Portable City Projects.
