Thank you to everyone who came out for the Public Interest Kick-Off event at LACE. You can read a report of the event on FUNCTION: PARTY CRASHER (excerpt below)
"Approaching the LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) gallery, I noticed that a man dressed as Superman was hanging outside on the sidewalk, talking to people. There was also a man in a two-piece suit running on a treadmill, painting oil portraits. I didn’t blink twice. I mean, this is Hollywood, weirder things have happened. And this kind of welcome definitely boded well for an interesting evening."Also, we now have a website for Not Content, thanks to the amazing skills and generosity of Amar Ravva. Not Content is on facebook too, with photos and information about the next event: Not Content Performance 2, with readings by Douglas Kearney, Vanessa Place and a Feral-Cat Attack as conceived by Divya Victor. These performances will mark the end of their residencies (though Place's Statement of Fact will be on display through July 19).
The next writers-in-residence include Gaby Torres & Jenny Donovan, Maxi Kim, and Amina Cain & Jen Karmin.
