Open Source III: Jean Robison, Carly Steward and Macha Suzuki

Open source 03forweb.jpg
 
 
 
Summercamp’s ProjectProject presents Open Source III  featuring artists Jean Robison, Carly Steward, and Macha Suzuki .

Open Source is a dialogue series akin to comedians workshopping new material, bands holding residency at a small venue, or a chef testing out a recipe with close friends before putting it in the restaurant menu. It is not presented as a critique, but rather, Open Source is an intimate discussion in the Livingroom, between artist and audience about ongoing work and ideas.
Artists will be bringing artworks in progress, tests, ephemera, ideas, and questions for the audience. In addition, we will open up the floor to dialogue about balancing parenthood and artisthood. The discussion will take place on Sunday, September 21st 11AM-1:30PM at 3119 Chadwick Drive LA, CA 90032.  

Because of the nature of the event we ask you to arrive promptly. Granola, yogurt, fruit and mimosas will be provided. We have limited childcare available. Please click here to RSVP to reserve a spot for your child.

Open Source in the Livingroom




After 5 years, we at Summercamp's ProjectProject revisited our mission and decided to expand our programming. With this in mind, we are introducing a series of artist dialogues entitled Open Source. Open Source is akin to comedians workshopping new material, bands holding residency at a small venue, or a chef testing out a recipe with close friends before putting it in the restaurant menu. Not presented as a critique, Open Source is an intimate discussion in the Livingroom, between artist and audience about ongoing work and ideas.

Artists will be bringing artworks in progress, tests, ephemera, ideas, and questions for the audience.

Sunday, July 27th from 4-6 PM: Kristi Lippire, Gina Osterloh and Jenny Yurshansky

Saturday, August 23rd from 7-9PM: Gina Kelly, Paul Pescador, Yoshie Sakai and Jennifer Juniper Stratford


Because of the nature of the event we ask you to arrive promptly. Rootbeer and Beer Floats will be provided.

We are excited about this new adventure- see you there!
Fatima, Elonda & Janice

Musical Performance by Sea Moon She and Friends 

It is hard to go to the studio every day. Upon visiting First Street Gallery, we were impressed by the sheer drive and creative fire of the artists. With Thaumatrope we hope to open a visual dialogue with artists from Los Angeles who share the same intense focus. 

First Street Gallery Art Center is an exhibition resource and arts management center for adults with developmental disabilities in Claremont, California. It is a unique art center of the Tierra del Sol Foundation founded on the proposition that human potential for creativity and artistic expression is not limited by physical or intellectual challenges.   Through cultivation of artistic expression, people with significant challenges can develop creatively and make important contributions to the cultural and economic life of their communities.

homeLA is where the heart is

homeLA from Summercamp ProjectProject on Vimeo.


We are pleased to host homeLA's fourth installment of performance organized by Rebecca Bruno!!!

Presenting Artists:
ELYSE REARDON-JUNG // BRIAN GETNICK // SELEN ERMANAV // MARCUS HERRING // EMILY MARCHAND // ALEXX SHILLING // MILKA DJORDJEVICH // LIBBY BUCHANAN // MAK // KATE GILBERT // SARAH LEDDY // HANA VAN DER KOLK // CRYSTAL SEPULVEDA 

Thirteen experimental body-based artists will respond to the particular architecture and ethos of a home that functions as a family residence and art event space simultaneously. This group of independent artists will present a one of kind performance born out of a three-month invasion of the Summercamp space. Live performance, experimental dance, and body-based videos will take over and illuminate the home in an event that is uniquely oriented towards domestic space and Los Angeles geography.

homeLA serves as a lab space for experimental dance artists to develop new works and engage with diverse audiences in alternative spaces. By activating domestic space as a performance platform, the event seeks to contribute to the development of new experimental dance and body-based art created in Los Angeles.


Please RSVP to homeLA.hello@gmail.com and receive the home address.
Space is limited so your RSVP is highly recommended!


Tickets are $15 suggested cash donation toward compensating the artists.
