Exquisite Corpse Screening for La Reina de Los Angeles
1418 Descanso Dr, La Cañada Flintridge, CA 91011
Thursday, October 4, 7pm
Without the Los Angeles River, there would quite simply be no Los Angeles. While the precise geography is unknown, historians have estimated it’s changed course at least nine times in the first half of the nineteenth century alone. La Reina de Los Ángeles will present a discussion of our current relationship with water, using the Los Angeles River as an entry point. Through contemporary art works, documentary films, historic materials and special programming, La Reina de Los Ángeles will explore the history, infrastructure and community around this critical resource.
Originally screened in 2016 at the CURRENT:LA Water Public Art Biennial, Exquisite Corpse is a 51-minute film that traces the 51-mile length of the LA River from its origin to its ocean terminus, capturing its varied landscapes, neighborhoods, creatures, and communities along the way. The film is presented as part of the La Reina de Los Ángeles exhibition curated by Debra Scacco at the Sturt Haaga Gallery.
