Rangers at LACE for Public Interest on November 13

This Fall, the Rangers are deep into field research and cultural exchange in Almere, the Netherlands. In 2008, we built SITE2F7 Ontdekkingstocht (Explorer's Hike) which included a trail system surrounding the Museum de Paviljoens. With further community dialogue and investigation of this lively vacant lot, we are now building a field guide and related components. These tools for on-site and remote exploration of SITE2F7, reflect on and suggest development of this temporary park devoted to explorations of nature and culture.

Join us at the Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) in Hollywood when we'll share this recent adventure and invite conversation alongside other LA artists interested in investigations of public space and practices:

PUBLIC INTEREST: Projects & Prototypes

Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE)
6522 Hollywood Boulevard
Los Angeles, 90028

Otis MFA Public Practice Program and LACE co-host this day-long event with a Los Angeles-centric look at the burgeoning field of arts-based public projects and practices. Fifteen artists and collectives offer rapid-fire presentations to examine a range of arts approaches, followed by a series of peer-to-peer roundtable workshops.

This program is presented through Otis Graduate Public Practice’s educational events, a higher degree college program dedicated to furthering dialogue within the Los Angeles public arts community; and through LACE's current year-long initiative, PUBLIC INTEREST, a series of installations, artist residencies and interventions to showcase contemporary art, architecture and design practices that challenge standard notions of public space through creative actions.

The Los Angeles Urban Rangers are greatly appreciative of the City of Los Angeles' Department of Cultural Affairs support of our field research in the Netherlands through a Cultural Exchange International grant.
