NEW LOS ANGELES ART FAIR FOR CONTEMPORARY AND
has been over a decade since Los Angeles hosted a major contemporary art fair
and much has happened since then - an explosion of contemporary art galleries
and an expansion of local museum programs that highlight new and contemporary
art. Many cultural critics are declaring Los Angeles as the destination to find
the latest and most vital artists and galleries in the country. More and more
artists are moving to live and work in Los Angeles and their work is increasingly
finding greater exposure around the world. It is fitting that Los Angeles now
have an exciting new art fair through which to re-present itself to the art world.

art scene. Galleries will present innovative works by established artists and
cutting-edge newcomers. Site-specific installations will feature robotic, video

screening of Gary Brackett's Living
Poetry with music by Patrick Grant, MC Baba, and others.
January 23 8:00pm
POETRY is the latest installment of a series of videos Brackett has been creating.
The series, This Weeks This, is a type of political diary which explores
the intersection between art and life, of the personal and the political, of daily
life and the world at large.
LIVING POETRY, Brackett weaves together interviews with poets and performers
with events of the daily life and world events, asking the simple question: what
is the role of poetry today? What good is it? Featured in the video is Judith
Malina, co-founder of The Living Theatre performer Steve Ben Israel;
poet and Beat Box artist MC Baba; as well as other members of the Living
Theatre, with music by the composer Patrick Grant.
two-week series of events at the Forum
Freies Theater featured workshops, performances, documentary films and
symposiums that explored the expressive forms which criticize globalization using
dramatic means and investigate how the strategies of social protest have changed
in the last half century.
The events included "Party Music Vol.1,"
a performance/lecture on music & politics by Patrick Grant, a Strange Music
collaboration with the upcoming hip-hop artist MC
Baba, and music for "A Day in the Life of the City" by
the Living Theatre, with the involvement of other international politically-minded
theater companies & many other participants from Europe, culminating
in a large-scale outdoor performance in the streets of Düsseldorf.

set up by director Maria Pessino. The tapestry of performances will be woven with
the threads of song, spoken word, visual and video arts, propelled along by an
original score by composer Patrick Grant. At the end of the evening, the audience's

the world's oldest maze: the event's main set-piece being a replica of the labyrinth
that Theseus battled the Minotaur within on the island Crete in Greek mythology.

in the jungles of Bali, Burma, Vietnam, and Indonesia, the artist Bettina WitteVeen

of real women in our own time, if not our own culture. The series has a strong
central theme, nothing less than epic in scope, that finds universal significance
in a deeply held belief in the significance of the universe. This center holds
together dynamic images of young and old women, trance dancers and weavers, priestesses
and innocent young girls - all captured through the lens of a practicing Buddhist.
