Artist Talk  | Harry Gamboa Jr. Presents “Urbanscape of Mirage”

Thursday
October 19, 2017
4:00pm – 6:00pm

Roble Gym  |  75 minutes including Q&A

Imagery of Asco (1972-1985), Virtual Vérité (2005 – 2017), and current performance works will accompany this lecture that focuses on the recent demolition of the iconic Los Angels 6th Street Bridge, the confluence of freeways, and the familiar nondescript locations that often serve as a starting point for anonymous journeys across an ocean of undulating asphalt. The swirling milieu of multiple cultures/languages of Los Angeles are in perpetual collision/melding/erasure as sudden tectonic shifts reset the clock towards countdown to consciousness. The historical relevance of events and places are subject to system loss of memory.
