Carlos Basualdo on Marcel Duchamp: Session I

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:30pm

Session I of IV

In four lectures, curator Carlos Basualdo provides a general introduction to the work of Marcel Duchamp, from the point of view of the relation between his life and his oeuvre, understood through the lens of selected recent works by three contemporary artists, Bruce Nauman, Philippe Parreno, and Pierre Huyghe.

The lectures attempt to reflect on the possible implication of Duchamp’s response to the question posed to him by Jean Antoine: “Marcel Duchamp, what have you done with your life?” to which he replied: “Using painting, using art, to establish a modus vivendi, a way of understanding life, that is to say, to try and make of my life itself a work of art, instead of spending my life making works of art in the form of paintings and sculptures.”

Mutant Olive

Lounge Theatre

6201 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90038

8:00pm

Father and son forgiveness is at the heart of Mutant Olive, a hilarious, heart-wrenching and triumphant solo play by writer/performer Mitch Hara. A self-described “ADHD buzz saw looking for a two-by-four,” Hara gives life to alter-ego Adam Astra, an actor whose past seems to constantly seep into his present. Breaking the fourth wall, Astra gleefully spoons out tales of his soul-sucking childhood, monstrous substance abuse, rampant sex and crashed cars — all during the course of an audition for Death of a Salesman. What will he say or do next? Jan. 22-Feb. 28; Lounge Theatre, 6201 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood CA 90038; Tickets: $25; 323-960-7861 or go to www.plays411.com/mutant.
