9.27 - @ LACE - 'Los Angeles Goes Live' Performance Art in Southern California 1970-1983

Los Angeles Goes Live is an exhibition, performance series and publication project that explores the histories and legacies of performance art in Southern California in the 1970s and early 80s. It will include a broad range of materials that represent the varied material record of performance: from photographic and video documentation to scores, scripts, costumes, posters and artist books. The Los Angeles Goes Live performance series will feature re-inventions of historical performances and new per formative actions staged throughout the city.

Los Angeles Goes Live is part of Pacific Standard Time. This unprecedented collaboration, initiated by The Getty, brings together more than sixty cultural institutions from across Southern California for six months beginning October 2011 to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene. LACE’s exhibition, performances and publication are supported by a generous grant from the Getty Foundation.

LACE invites its audiences to interrogate a central issue at the core of performance art practice and scholarship:
