Workshop: Timekeeper Invention Club

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 92656

1:00pm

Join artists and Art + Technology Lab grant recipients Taeyoon Choi and E Roon Kang for a collaborative investigation of “personalized time.”

Participants use a Timekeeper Invention Kit—an eclectic collection of found objects and original works by the artists—to make their own timekeeper. The artists also provide a historic overview of timekeeping and guide participants in the process of designing, building, and using their timekeepers.

The afternoon is a component of In Search of Personalized Time, a conceptual art project by Choi and Kang made possible with the support of the Art + Technology Lab at LACMA.

Ricardo Lemvo

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

5:00pm

Ricardo Lemvo has established himself as a pioneer with his innovative music. Lemvo’s blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms with pan-African styles (soukous, Angolan semba, and kizomba) has been described by the Los Angeles Times as “seamless and infectious.” This Congo-born artist of Angolan ancestry is the embodiment of Afro-Latin diaspora, which connects back to Mother Africa via the Cuban clave rhythm. Since forming his Los Angeles–based band, Makina Loca, in 1990, Lemvo has refined his craft and vision, raising his joyous voice with strength, singing songs that celebrate life, and most importantly, inspiring his audiences to let loose and dance away their worries.

Gipsy Kings 25th Anniversary Tour

Greek Theatre

Los Angeles, CA 90027

8:00pm

It has been twenty-five years since the Gipsy Kings captured the world's imagination with their self-titled debut album—a record that became a genuine phenomenon, certified gold and platinum around the globe, introducing millions of listeners to a unique, irresistible blend of traditional flamenco styles with Western pop and Latin rhythms. Since then, the band has toured virtually non-stop, to the farthest-flung corners of the planet, and sold almost twenty million albums, all the while retaining the same line-up of virtuoso musicians.

Now the Gipsy Kings return with their Grammy Award winning, ninth studio album, SAVOR FLAMENCO, their first new release in six years. The project marks the first time in their storied career that the Kings have produced themselves and written all of the material.
