Superclogger, Super Public

Saturday Oct 2, 2010 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM This is a past program

Taking place in the ubiquitous congestion of the Los Angeles freeways, Los Angeles-based artist Joel Kyack’s mobile puppet show Superclogger has been delighting stressed commuters all summer. Performed out of the back of his pick-up truck for unsuspecting drivers, this project unveils the temporary communities and specific urban conditions affecting Angelenos every day. In this panel, the artist Joel Kyack will discuss with arts writer Andrew Berardini and LAXART Curator of Public Art and Programs, Cesar Garcia, the complexities of Superclogger's production, the specificity of its audience, and how its meaning has morphed across a multiplicity of new media outlets and individual documentation.

Organized by Cesar Garcia for L.A.P.D. (Los Angeles Public Domain), an LAXART Public Art Initiative with support from ForYourArt, marks the first collaboration between LAXART and the Hammer Museum.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss. Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.
