The Silverlake Independent Jewish Community Center will host free, art workshops, open to the public on May 3, 2015, in conjunction with French artist Vincent Lamouroux’s site-specific art installation, Projection. This temporal art project, produced by Please Do Not Enter, has temporarily transformed Silver Lake’s Sunset Pacific Motel, well known by its infamous moniker as the “Bates Motel.” Lamouroux has covered the entire building and its surrounding environment in white opaque lime wash, inviting viewers to speculate, infer and project their own imaginings onto the stark white structure.
This related arts education programming will take place concurrently throughout Projection’s life-span, curated by Creative Migration, an arts nonprofit organization based in Silver Lake that is also managing the installation of the artwork itself.
These collaborative educational workshops are intended to encourage critical engagement with the installation, and are designed to raise questions about our living environment and the mutability of our perceptions. Lamouroux’s interest in the creation of experiential encounters, and in the indeterminate potential of transitional spaces, will inform the larger conceptual framework of these dedicated art workshops. In keeping with the spirit of the project, the programming is an invitation to speculate, experience and question.
These workshops are made possible with support from the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council, and are held on a first-come first-serve basis - subject to advance sign-up.
