Made in L.A. 2012- A Video Interview with Dan Finsel
Artist Dan Finsel invites us into his studio in Chatsworth, CA. Instead of a straightforward video interview, we had quite the experience, as you can see. The work of Dan Finsel centers on the character "Dan Finsel," a perversion of the artist's "authentic" personality. "Dan Finsel's" overarching narrative is that subconsciously he is caught in a reverse Oedipus complex with the actress and artist Farrah Fawcett, who represents his Oedipal mother. In The Space between You and Me (2012), Finsel reinterprets the collaboration between Fawcett and the artist Keith Edmier. In 2000 the two created sculptures of each other, and the catalogue documenting the project served as Finsel's source for a re-creation of specific process shots in video and a reinterpretation of the sculptures. The narrative/mythology of the video is constructed around the actors' personalities, their relationships with each other, and their relationships to their characters. The actors take turns filming each other, mirroring the Edmier-Fawcett relationship. In this work Finsel takes the concept of reinvention and role-playing in new directions, challenging viewers to figure out who the real Dan Finsel is and what his real traumas are. www.madeinla2012.org/artist/dan-finsel-2/

Made in L.A. 2012- Welcome to Slanguage Studio
Founded in 2002 by Karla Diaz and Mario Ybarra, Jr., Slanguage is an artist group headquartered in Wilmington, California, a harbor area of Los Angeles. Currently, members make artwork, curate exhibitions, coordinate events, and lead art-education workshops. A diverse group at various points in their careers, Slanguage includes teenagers, street artists, and established mid -- to late career artists, the majority of whom live and work in the greater Los Angeles area, especially Wilmington. Slanguage bases their practice on a three-pronged approach to art-making to include education, community-building, and interactive exhibitions. Focusing on art education, the collective has organized numerous artist residencies in museums across the United States and abroad. Fostering dialog about the meaning and value of contemporary art, Slanguage has used their studio space and resources to cultivate relationships between diverse artists, students, communities, and organizations. And, creating artworks that have ranged from multimedia installations to performances, public events, and workshops, the collective has enriched, inspired, and provoked viewers' imaginations through local, national, and international exhibitions. www.madeinla2012.org/artist/slanguage-2/
