MACHINE PROJECT FIELD GUIDE TO THE GAMBLE HOUSE
Presented by The Pasadena Arts Council’s AxS Festival
Friday, September 19th – Sunday, October 5th
As part of this year’s Art and Science (AxS) Festival in Pasadena, whose theme is “Curiosity,” the Gamble House has collaborated with the Pasadena Arts Council and Machine Project of Los Angeles to present a special 17-day artist intervention in Pasadena’s world-renowned historic landmark. You will experience the Gamble House as never before – through the work and performance of contemporary artists in an exciting variety of forms and media. From night-time lighting shows and a “secret” restaurant, to psychic readings, bedroom conversations, group naps, dance, and installations of paintings, ceramics, wood, and metal, you will find plenty of opportunities both to spark and satisfy your curiosity, using all five of your senses (maybe even a sixth)!
Special artist-led workshops and tours will explore details of the life of the Gamble family, the crafts of letter-writing and embroidery, the technology and craftsmanship of the Gamble House, and even an opportunity to make your own soap (a tribute to the family firm of Procter & Gamble and its famed Ivory soap)!
…take a docent-led one-hour tour of the house or to participate in any of the wide variety of artist-led workshops (additional fees apply). You won’t want to miss this unique moment to visit the Gamble House, when we celebrate the true spirit of the original Arts and Crafts and contemporary Maker movements!
