Rad(ish) Island Tour by Islands of LA & Roots of Compromise (Karen Atkinson, John Burtle, Ari Kletzky, Owen Driggs)

Walking from artwork into actual space, the Rad(ish) Island Tour considers possibilities of public planting, public gathering and the related agendas that inform the portrayal of landscape. The tours begin at the traffic island sculpture, which is a model of the Curson/Wilshire island, proceeds inside LACMA galleries to various European painting and concludes on the Curson/Wilshire island itself.

Tours limited to 8 people – sign up at the Roots of Compromise traffic island sculpture located in the BP Pavilion; all tours depart from here; one hour duration, in three parts: 1pm, 2:30, 4pm, 5:30, 7pm.

This is one of the many great events that is part of Let Them Eat LACMA:


Sing for your supper, come bellyache with us and slake your thirst at Let Them Eat LACMA! For the last “course” of EATLACMA, a year-long investigation of food, art, culture and politics, we’ve assembled over fifty artists and collaborations all focused in different ways on food.

High tea and gluttony, belly listening, parasites, spam, and the world seen from the potato’s perspective! David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young of Fallen Fruit invite artists and the public to reconsider the museum and the very first form of civilization: food, and to examine the most primordial thing that connects us to each other: what, how, and why we eat. Share a bite and nibble and munch your way through a wild menu of installations, performances and interventions throughout the entire museum campus.

See chewing carolers, a tomato fight, and a year’s worth of plates assembled into a mandala that disappears into the crowd! Join us for a watermelon eating contest, hear about the mystery of the knife, fork and spoon, watch Salome seduce her lover through the language of food, sample the food served to prisoners in California jails, and finally, EAT THE MUSEUM itself!
