FORD THEATRE PRESENTS DRAG ME CRAZY, INSTALLATIONS AND PERFORMANCES ON FEBRUARY 18 FROM 2-8 P.M. (2580 CAHUENGA BLVD E, LOS ANGELES) AS PART OF THE DIALECTIC OF THE STARS, FLAX’S FEBRUARY ARTS FESTIVAL
FLAX (France Los Angeles Exchange) is pleased to present The Dialectic of the Stars, a visual arts and performance festival curated by Fabien Danesi, FLAX’s current Curator-in-Residence, which will be free and open to all. This February, the two-week series features works by 19 French and American artists showcased, like points of a star, at five iconic arts venues throughout the City. As part of FLAX’s compelling series, Ford Theatres presents Drag Me Crazy on February 18 from 2-8 p.m. Taking place throughout the day, Ford Theatres transitions into a true gallery space with videos and installations by Scoli Acosta, HoŰl Duret, Alison O’Daniel and Assaf Shaham, all playing with illusion and transformation of the spaces. There will also be performances in the amphitheater from 4-6 p.m. by Emily Mast in collaboration with Alan Chan, Rafaela Lopez and Lucky Dragons. In the context of this huge architecture emblematic of the Golden Age of the city, artists will create a baroque spectacle, extending the stage and offering multiple experiences to the audience. While the entire event is free and open to the public, due to limited seating reservations will be required via www.fordtheatres.org/calendar/dialectic-stars-drag-me-crazy for the 6-8 p.m. portion of the evening, which includes food & refreshments as well as games by artist Robert Karimi. French sculptor Nicolas Momein will unveil a new presentation of a mobile artwork made of several magnetic sculptures presented on a cargo van, evolving at each venue, acting as the totem of the project and the link between all the events.
Ford Theatres Drag Me Crazy will be an integral part of the art series The Dialectic of the Stars, which invites the public to drift all over the city to attend events at The Sowden House on February 11, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) on February 15, Ford Theatres on February 18, L.A. Dance Project (LADP) on February 24 and Zebulon on February 25. Installations and performances can be seen as allegories of coordinates, guiding the audience in the vastness of our globalized culture, like sailors once did at sea.
