Autry After Hours

Wednesday, 11 April 2018 // 6:30-9PM

Poetry, music, and art converge in this new after-hours series. Inspired by The Autry's LA RAZA exhibition, join local L.A. poets (including liz gonzalez and former L.A. Poet Laureate Luis Rodriguez), artists, DJs, and performers for a compelling cultural encounter as you groove to beats by global bass crew Subsuelo. Then create your own crafts with East Los Angeles’s own Self Help Graphics & Art's Barrio Mobile Art Studio and experience the gallery unlike ever before with a site-specific performance by Artemisa Clark.

On Record
On Record is the second iteration of a performance series in which Artemisa Clark reads from stacks of government documents pertaining to the various sites in which the work takes place. I will use a selection of texts from the Ernesto Chavez Collection of Chicano Movement FBI Records to very slowly and only ever partially weave together a narrative of the FBI's surveillance of and violence against the Chicano Movement.

The first performance of On Record, performed at Angel's Gate Cultural Center for ELEVATOR MONDAYS at Other Places Art Fair, was featured in reviews by Christina Catherine Martinez for Artforum Diary and Georgia Lassner for unpublished. It was also discussed in a recently published interview about Artemisa Clark's practice with Angella d'Avignon for Art Practical.

Artemisa Clark is an UC San Diego Department of Visual Arts MFA Alumna. For more about her work, please visit:
