Apocalypse Now? Art Event, Live Screening and Themed Party

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Come together for the End of Times! Join Six Points Fellow Jonas Becker for art work reflecting on the end of days, a screening of footage being shot live in Mexico for her 2012102 Video, and a festive party featuring Apocalypse themed micro brewed beer and Karaoke. Bring your skepticism, bring your questions, bring your flashlight, and for heavens sake, bring your dance pants.

Apocalypse Now? is a time specific collaborative art event and screening of footage from the film 2012102. While guests gather in Highland Park, attempting Apocalypse themed Karaoke, making end-of-the-world drawings or just hanging out, artist Jonas Becker will be in Mexico, shooting the video 201210. She will be driving from one major Mayan site to another, filming believers and skeptics, cultural tourists, spiritual leaders and doomsday conspiracy junkies as they gather to prepare and honor the last days of the Mayan calendar. This footage will be streamed and projected for the live audience a Apocalypse Now?, whose comments, questions and curiosities will be incorporated into the final video.
2012102 is part of a larger body of work, titled 2×12, comprised of a series of 12 short videos that explore cultural myths about time and the end of the world, beginning with Noah’s Ark. The 12 videos will ultimately be exhibited together, embracing the diversity of what the end of days evokes. As a whole, this piece will contextualize each (unfulfilled) end inside the persistent march of time, allowing both humor and hope to incite questions of how “the end” operates in contemporary culture.

Seder with Fellows in LA!

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Join Fellows Will Deutsch and Jonas N. T. Becker for Seder: a meal-based initiative committed to creating a path for rethinking how contemporary Jewish art and culture is financed and experienced communally. In exchange for a modest cash donation ($18), guests enjoy a vegetarian locally sourced dinner and receive a ballot. During the dinner, artists who have submitted project proposals will make brief presentations. At the end of the dinner, all guests vote on the project they like the best. The artist whose proposal receives the most votes gets the donation money collected at the door.

Seder is a part of Nu ART Projects, a LA based Jewish art collective, dedicated to increasing Jewish cultural appreciation through well-crafted participatory experiences.

Thursday, March 29 from 7-9pm
