Happening 2013: LACE Benefit Art Auction is almost here!
05 August 2012 1 - 4 PM
ASAP @ LACE
LACE is located in the heart of Hollywood, an ideal place to observe and contemplate the collision of Los Angeles -- its intricate networks hum with activity as resources are transferred and spaces are reconstructed through use or development. ASAP’s 2011 Re-Visions of LA drawing workshops will build conversations around how our urban environments are constructed and what that means to our every day lives. Each month a new group of artists will spend an afternoon at LACE providing free drawing classes.
All levels and ages are welcome as we talk about Hollywood while drawing our surroundings.
All workshops are free, and all materials will be supplied.

Angeles Filmforum and LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibition) invite
you to join us for a rare screening of work by Los Angeles artist Steve
Roden, presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Shells, Bells, Steps and Silences,
currently on view at LACE. This screening includes Roden’s first video
work from 1989, and many never before screened super 8mm projects that
will be accompanied by a live sound score to be performed by Roden. Striations, a 16mm film from 2011 that references Dennis Oppenheim's early films, Gary Beydler's Hand Held Day, and the work of Jess, will also be screened.
Roden's working process uses various forms of specific notation (words, musical scores, maps, etc.) and translates them through self-invented systems into scores; which then influence the process of creating the work. These scores, rigid in terms of their parameters and rules, are also full of holes for intuitive decisions and left turns. The inspirational source material becomes a kind of formal skeleton for the finished abstract works. In his visual works, translations of information such as text and maps become rules and systems for generating visual actions such as color choices, number of elements, and image building.
$10 general; $6 students/seniors/LACE members; free for Filmforum members. Tickets available at Brown Paper tickets: brownpapertickets.com/event/262575
