X, Y, Z, and U

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 6 giugno 2009

the franchiseLos Angeles until 3/7/2009 Outpost for Contemporary Art  6375 N. Figueroa Street –  curated by The Franchise winners The League of Imaginary Scientists  In December, apexart held a worldwide open call for 250-word proposals for exhibitions. Based on the idea of creating our own franchise, we wanted to hear from the participants why the franchise should come to their town. We invited over 250 jurors to judge this unusual experiment and, in the end, a proposal from Los Angeles stood out against the 456 proposals from 65 countries that were submitted.  X, Y, Z, and U is an exhibition and series of discussions and workshops featuring the mapping projects of artists whose creative practices resemble field research and scientists who use DIY tactics and creative visualization to map scientific information. Through community-based activities and actions, X, Y, Z, and U asks: Where is science and how do we interact with it? Who maps information and who has access? Can anyone participate in genomic research?  Participating artists and scientists include: Kim Abeles, Kelly Jaclynn Andres, Jason Bobe, Mackenzie Cowell, Liz Kueneke, Andrea Polli and Chuck Varga  The League of Imaginary Scientists is an inventive research collective. In pairing science and art, the League seeks to formulate new methods for data expression, embodied through interactions that produce physical artifacts and accompanying scientific residues.  The winning proposal comes from Los Angeles, CA:  The League of Imaginary Scientists is a group of interdisciplinary thinkers and tinkerers who present ambitious participatory art events with repurposed mechanics and scientific assertions. The League concocts micro-festivals for microorganisms, invites scientific luminaries onto local stages, and pours limited paper money into our bottomless pit of ideas. The resulting diversions from the everyday celebrate the everyday: past exhibitions showcased a communication device for talking to bacteria and a machine for reversing progress and returning viewers to childhood. League exhibitions simultaneously subvert and revamp the story of science. More than anything, the League of Imaginary Scientists is a consortium for ideas – a mental exhibition space where conversations and collaborations are hatched. We seek affiliation and guidance by Apexart because A) we do not have the know-how or funds to leap from independent art collective to independent art space, and B) the League was formed on a street called Apex Avenue in Silverlake in 2006. For our dream exhibition in our city of Los Angeles, the League proposes an exhibition of artworks that function as scientific research for studies without intentionality – purely for experimentation. Examples of the types of projects we would like to exhibit include art and science in the vein of research practiced by artists such as Andrea Polli, whose work includes a study on locust eyes, and Kelly Andres, whose mobile laboratory allows city-goers to listen to ecology, as well as groups like Harvard’s neuroscience laboratory, currently creating the first molecular film of an unraveled mouse brain. Aspirations for an evocative idea-oriented exhibition aside, the League gives great weight to the word, Apex. Our own origins anticipated an eventual peak. Perhaps this is it. (the franchise)
