LACMA at Redlands
A new initiative of interactive art and film programming will be launched at Redlands by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) beginning June 7 at the corner of East Brockton Avenue and University Street.
Redlands is one of nine communities in Southern California where the public will have an opportunity to experiment with both art and the film making process at LACMA9 + Film Lab. The experience includes outdoor film screenings, hands-on filmmaking and art workshops and a gathering of oral histories from community members. The lab will provide all materials and equipment for participants to learn about cinematography, soundtracks and in-camera editing.
"The LACMA9 Art + Film Lab brings the museum directly to communities," said Jane Burrell, LACMA senior vice president of education and public programs. "By spending time in neighborhoods, we hope to build relationships with new audiences and deliver compelling, free programs that explore how technology can be used for personal expression.”
The initiative offers different perspectives on design, community and space through the collaborations of Nicole Miller and artist Jorge Pardo. The art and film lab was also designed by Pardo.
Admission is free. Opening night celebrations will begin at 6 p.m. Friday, June 7 and will include live music and a film screening at 8 p.m. of "The Exiles."
At the end of five-week visit, the community will be invited for a special day of free admission to LACMA on Oct. 13.
