CAROLEE SCHNEEMANN — BREAKING THE FRAME

Join filmmaker Marielle Nitoslawskal for the Los Angeles premiere of her Carolee Schneemann documentary BREAKING THE FRAME.

Presented by the Los Angeles Filmforum at MOCA, BREAKING THE FRAME—shot in 35mm, 16, Super 8, and HD video over the course of six years—is a “kinetic, hyper-­cinematic intervention, a critical meditation on the relation of art to the physical, domestic and conceptual aspects of daily life and on the attributes of memory. It uses Schneemann’s autobiographical materials to narrate the historic upheaval within Western art in post-­war America.”*

INGA LĀCE AT LAXART

Inga Lāce—a curator from Riga whose practice connects the art/historical with the social/political—will give a talk at LAXART this week and present AMERICA IS NOT READY FOR THIS, the artist Karol Radziszewski’s 2012 film that takes as its starting point the 1977 trip Natalia LL made to New York City.

“Radziszewski revives Natalia LL’s memories, confronting both Polish and Western narratives of art history and raising a series of questions on issues such as gender, feminist art, conceptual art, and queer and East-West relations and their impact on the art world in the context of the period of the Iron Curtain.

“The film is both a search for parallels between the artistic experiences of Natalia LL and Radziszewski, as well as an attempt to examine the rules governing the positioning of artists in the art world, both in the 1970s and today.”*

Included in the film are interviews with Carolee SchneemannVito Acconci, AA Bronson, Douglas Crimp, Antonio Homem, and Mario Montez.

ORGASMIC STREAMING

ORGASMIC STREAMING—ORGANIC GARDENING—ELECTROCULTURE is “a group exhibition looking at practices that emerge between text and performance, the page and the body, combining a display and events program of historical and contemporary works—[seeking] an alternative framework to look at the influence of conceptual procedures as well as experimental writing within contemporary feminist performance practices across visual art, sound and text.”*
