From social media:
“Jubilee (second iteration) is an installation/performance work. The piece involves a performer enacting a series of determined actions with a series of determined objects, but the sequence and duration of actions is largely chance determined. The work is an amalgamation of strategies and has affinities to the actions of Bruce Nauman, the chance works of John Cage, and the absurdist theater of Samuel Beckett. Direct narrative is avoided in favor of a more allegorical approach, where the gallery/studio and subsequent actions within it, may suggest a wide range of possible meanings and associations. The nature of Jubilee is essentially modular and is designed so that it could be realized in a variety of future spaces and contexts.”

Also on Saturday, June 29, in the afternoon, Armory Center for the Arts presents MONSTER DRAWING RALLY, hosted by Outpost for Contemporary Art.
I beg your indulgence in my posting of the press release:
“Time again for the Monster Drawing Rally, a live drawing and fundraising event hosted by Outpost @ Armory at Armory Center for the Arts. Featuring live drawing by 100 artists, the event includes tacos, food, beer by Craftsman Brewing Company, music, and kids drawing activities. Admission is a $10 donation at the door.
Monster Drawing Rally features 100 artists—twenty-five artists drawing simultaneously in four, one-hour shifts. Audiences will have the rare opportunity to watch art being created and purchase completed drawings for $75 each. Proceeds benefit Outpost @ Armory.
Monster Drawing Rally is an annual tradition established in Los Angeles by Outpost for Contemporary Art, now Outpost @ Armory. The event concept was developed in 2001 by Southern Exposure, a San Francisco-based, artist-centered, not-for-profit, and has continued to thrive there since. Outpost @ Armory is pleased to bring the concept to Los Angeles’ vibrant art scene.
Guest DJs Canyon Cody (Subsuelo) and Xandão (Sound Ethnography Project)
