X-TRA Spring issue launch @ Maccarone LA, Apr 23

22 April 2016

X-TRA Contemporary Art Quarterly is launching its Spring 2016 issue with a screening and discussion at LA’s Maccarone, on April 23.

The event will include a screening of London and Berlin-based artist Cécile B. Evans‘ ‘Hyperlinks or It Didn’t Happen’ (2014) video work, along with LA writer, teacher and X-TRA editorial board member Leslie Dick speaking on Sarah Charlesworth‘s 1980 photo series ‘Stills’. Dick will then be joined in conversation with LA-based artist and writer Tracy Jeanne Rosenthal, moderated by Brica Wilcox.

Both Charlesworth and Evans’ works address ideas of the image, life and death; where the former explores the role of the image-maker in her six-and-a-half foot tall images of people plunging to their demise. The latter’s video piece contemplates data after dying through its posthumous avatar-narrator resembling the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

See the FB event page for details.**
