The Fainting Club

Creative Migration is now a fiscal sponsor of The Fainting Club as it continues to grow its global network.

Founded by artist Zoe Crosher, the "Fainting Club is an old boys’ club, for girls. It gathers over food and drinks when inspiration strikes, and aims to strike its members with inspiration. It celebrates and draws creative women from multiple disciplines—artists, writers, filmmakers, chefs, musicians— and welcomes any and all like-minded souls. Started in Los Angeles and based on the knowledge that strong, interesting and intelligent women are more powerful as a group, the club has begun to expand internationally. It now has chapters in New York, Mexico City, London and Hong Kong. All new members must be invited in person or, if distance prevents this, verbally, as connection and conversation are key to the club’s purpose. The only requirement for joining is a generous, collaborative spirit and a willingness to support other women.”
– Charlotte Druckman (New York Times, T Magazine Article)

FREE Kids Workshops with PROJECTION artist Vincent Lamouroux

Meet the artist and make your own whitewash installation! Includes pizza lunch for kids, compliments of Purgatory at the Junction. We ask that an adult accompany children under 10.

Open to the first 60 kids (aged K-8th grade) who register on Eventbrite. May 3, 2015 from 12-2pm. Sorry, no walk-ups.

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.

Projection opening - Sunday, April 6th


By Vincent Lamouroux

4301 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90029
Public Opening - Sunday, April 26, 3-6pm

An architectural intervention into Silver Lake’s notorious Sunset Pacific Motel, commonly known by its infamous moniker as the “Bates Motel”, Projection by Vincent Lamouroux will impermanently transform the derelict structure, altering the public’s perception and temporal experience of the site. The artist will cover the entire building in white opaque lime wash, inviting viewers to speculate, infer and project their own imaginings onto the stark white structure. By dramatically punctuating Los Angeles’ urban landscape, Projection becomes an open- ended invitation to experience an indeterminate space.

PUBLIC OPENING Sunday, April 26, 2015

3:00 - 6:00 PM
4301 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90029
Bates Avenue at Sunset Blvd. and the Silver Lake Jewish Independent Community Center

"Projection is a site-specific intervention on the Sunset Pacific Motel property in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. It consists of covering the entire building – as well as the billboard and palm trees that surround it – with an ecologically safe white limewash.

On Sunset Boulevard and Bates Avenue, a transitioning facade, an abandoned motel as a commonplace, archetype of the constant mobility of contemporary society. A white coat now adorns the architecture. The limewash thoroughly covers the building and the adjacent billboard, as well as the palm trees that surround it. The urban space is disrupted. An abandoned space is transfigured and enhanced, perhaps eluding its last glory. The motel's intriguing aspect is accommodating an imaginary drive away from our habitual quest for sameness.

Projection induces both an appearance and a disappearance; it revisits our existing landscape with new eyes and envisions the building’s surfaces as screens for the projection of our desires.

Essentially the motel – an incarnation of impermanence and passage – remains closed. The lime wash adornment thus re-imagines the building as an architectural model transposed in an urban environment. Impenetrable, it preserves the indetermination that nourishes our curiosity and imagination.

Projection calls for an economy of means, brings revelation to a site suddenly fixed in time, informing a spatial- temporal transformation."
