#18discuss | Project X: Forum 5: Program for Paradise
Wednesday, July 29 7:00PM-9:00PM
Remsen Bird Hillside Theater, Occidental College
This is the fifth 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 5th Project X Forum at a special location, at the Remsen Bird Hillside Theater at Occidental College in Eagle Rock.
Lucky Dragons, Sarah Petersen, and other special guests come together to present interpretative tours and readings from the 1995 “Program for Paradise” organized by Project X on this site 20 years ago. Program for Paradise was program of performance, site works, writings and readings in the outdoor amphitheater.
1995 Participating Artists: (Performances) Anita Pace, Marnie Weber, Liz Young, (Site Works) Stephen Berens, Ellen Birrell, Elizabeth Bryant, Ben Chase, Andrew Freeman, Robert Gero, Mara Lonner, Mike Pierzynski, (Writings & Readings) Lisa Anne Auerbach, David Bunn, Kathleen Johnson, Charles LaBelle, Terri Phillips, Jan Tumlir, Eve Wood

This Project X Forum is presented in collaboration with OxyArts, the newly created multidisciplinary arts programming initiative at Occidental College.
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.
