The undergrad public art class at USC (aka “Art In the Public Realm: Contemporary Issues”) is working on a project with Ari and Islands of LA. The aim is to develop an island-based action that let’s our group tease out – or butt into – ideas about public space/s in L.A. It could be a didactic intervention that articulates theoretical perspectives or it could be keyed for fun. Most likely we think it’ll be some delightful mix of the two.
We’re going to be talking about the project and exchanging ideas on the (arguably) public space that is this blog. So please join in with your comments and suggestions, we look forward to hearing from you – and class…..
Update: on April 17th, we met on an island on the corner of Figueroa and 23rd, between downtown and USC.
Below is the discussion that led up to this activity where we played Pictionary and had a picnic on a Friday evening.
