From Sea to Shining Sea

Saturday, September 9, 2017 | 6:00pm

Angels Gate Cultural Center | 3601 South Gaffey Street, San Pedro, CA 90731

At White Point Nature Preserve Jimena Sarno will create “from sea to shining sea” (FSTSS), a site-specific live sound and choir performance. The project responds to San Pedro’s militarization process as a coastal city and the historical significance of the site. With a rich history of immigrant populations, San Pedro’s history also aligns with WWII notions of national security, as they still relate today to patriotism and xenophobia. The audience will surround the C3LA Choir performing the new composition, overlooking the Pacific Ocean at sunset on a central stage within a reinforced concrete casemate that once housed a long-range naval gun.

OCTOBER 2017


Signaling, 2012

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 | 7:00 pm

University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach | 1250 North Bellflower Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90840

Growing up in Argentina and living itinerantly in Los Angeles as an adult, the palm tree has for Lamelas always symbolized home, being both familiar and nostalgic, yet similar from place to place. He has often spoken of the awkwardness of palms and how they possess almost human characteristics. In Signaling (2012), two potted palm trees placed in a UAM gallery will be activated by contemporary dancers who respond to them as living things bound by gravity. Newly choreographed, this performance at the UAM will include dancers from the CSU Long Beach Department of Dance.

Three Films: David Lamelas

Sunday, October 8, 2017 | 5:00pm

The University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach | 1250 North Bellflower Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90840

David Lamelas began working in film in the late 1960s while living in London. Subsequently he created films in continental Europe, the United States, and Argentina. Place plays an integral role in his filmwork, as do the phenomenological experiences of time, space, and narrative. The University Art Museum presents three films by David Lamelas, including a rare 16 mm screening of Film 18 Paris IV 70 (People and Time-Paris), made with artist Daniel Buren, journalist Raúl Escari, and filmmaker Pierre Grinberg for the conceptual exhibition 18 Paris IV.70, curated by Michel Claura and Seth Siegelaub. The screening will be followed by Q&A with the artist.

Gavin Gamboa, Tausendvierhundertsechzehn for Tenor and String Quartet (1416m³), 2014

Sunday, October 22, 2017 | 3:00 pm

University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach | 1250 North Bellflower Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90840

Long interested in liberating sculpture from the traditional ideas of mass and volume, Lamelas conceived of Tausendvierhundertsechzehn for Tenor and String Quartet as a way for space to assume a central role for social interaction and as a catalyst for creativity. Music is both invisible and temporal, and with 1416m³ the artist and composer sought to sonically describe their effort to fill the architectural volume of a space over a period of time (the piece being named for the dimensions of the Oberlichtsaal of Kunsthalle Basel, where it was first performed). Los Angeles-based composer Gavin Gamboa and Mexican tenor León de Castillo collaborated on this situational piece with the Lamelas for his solo exhibition, V (2014). The three come together again with a string quartet from the Bob Cole Conservatory on campus to reimagine this live experience.

Duration: 12 minutes.
