Project 35 Screening at LAXART

Free and open to the public. LAXART is pleased to present a special screening of Project 35, a program of single-channel videos that was instigated by Independent Curators International (ICI). 35 international curators were invited to each choose one work from an artist that they think is important for audiences around the world to experience today. The resulting selection unfolds in four chapters over a period of a year, and is presented simultaneously in an ever-expanding number of venues worldwide. Next Tuesday, Kate Fowle, ICI’s Executive Director, will introduce the first chapter of Project 35 at LAXART. In this first compilation, the works range from re-interpretations of philosophical propositions to uprisings and protests in South Africa, propaganda news broadcasts in China, and emerging youth culture in modern-day Ho Chi Minh City. The selection also points to developments in the practice and reveals a diversity of approaches now taking to the medium, using various animation techniques, as well as borrowing from the language of cinema, performance, and even YouTube to produce works that weave between documentary and fiction. With videos by: Guy Ben-Ner / Robert Cauble / Kota Ezawa / Dan Halter / Tuan Andrew Nguyen & Phu Nam Thuc Ha / Edwin Sanchez / Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz / Yukihiro Taguchi / Zhou Xiaohu Curated by ICI and: Zoe Butt / Mai Abu ElDahab / Lu Jie / Mami Kataoka / Constance Lewallen / Raimundas Malasauskas / José Roca / Franklin Sirmans / Kathryn Smith Project 35 is produced and circulated by ICI (Independent Curators International), New York. The exhibition and tour are made possible, in part, by grants from the Cowles Charitable Trust; Foundation for Contemporary Art; the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; The Toby Fund; the ICI Board of Trustees and ICI Benefactors Barbara and John Robinson. Image caption: Edwin Sanchez, Clases de cuchillo (knife lessons), 2006-07 image
