#18discuss | Project X: Forum 3
Tuesday, May 19, 7:30PM
18th Street Arts Center | Curator’s Lounge
1629 18th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404
This is the third in a series of public forums investigating the exhibitions Project X produced in the 90s, with a focus on the conditions facing Los Angeles artists at that time, and the way they shaped artist-run organizations, alternative exhibitions and publications. What can the nineties tell us about now?
Join us for the 3rd Project X Forum:
This forum will focus on Xtreme Research, the 1993 exhibition organized by Project X in February 1993
at California State University Los Angeles.
We’ll screen David Wilson’s video, which was commissioned for the show, and host an open forum with the artists and organizers.
Project X originated as a roving organization. A team of artists curating exhibitions in the wake of the art market boom of the nineties, they strove to fill the absence of conceptual art criticism in Los Angeles. Project X’s curatorial projects illustrate the crucial role of the artist’s voice in shaping and sustaining the Los Angeles art community.
The Project X Forums are organized by Shana Lutker and Kellie Lanham.
