Marcus Kuiland-Nazario | Sea Change Lab
December 15, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Santa Monica Pier Locals’ Night
Pier Parking Deck | 3PM – 8PM
Santa Monica resident, artist, and curator Marcus Kuiland-Nazario developed Sea Change Lab, a multi-site, interdisciplinary, contemporary art program that explores the senses and how they have been affected by COVID-19, isolation, and separation through virtual, participatory family-friendly workshops and an artist laboratory housed in a 25’ by 8’ foot trailer. As part of December’s Locals’ Night, Sea Change Lab will present a site-specific dance performance by award-winning Santa Monica choreographer Lionel Popkin in collaboration with dancer Carolyn Hall, and a conversation between artist/filmmaker Nao Bustamante and chef/KCRW’s Good Food host Evan Kleiman on how COVID-19 has changed our relationship to our kitchens. Returning to the Sea Change Lab is Typewriters Anonymous with their interactive, beat-flavored poetry workshop/performance accompanied by live music, a set by DJ/scholar Madison Moore, and a listening station where stories from artists and community members about quarantine experiences will be shared and collected.
Sea Change Lab is brought to you by the City of Santa Monica’s Art of Recovery initiative, Artists At Work, the 18th Street Arts Center, and produced by Community Arts Resources. For more information, please visit HERE.
This event is artist-led. Please direct inquiries to the artist directly.
