    Remembering Forward presents a series of conversations on photography and temporality. Photography, particularly as a digitized medium, embodies repetition. It also continues to be positioned as a useful means of recollection, an aide de memoir. For the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, repetition is enacted and accumulates forward in time, the opposite of recollection, a method of recovering that which exists back in time. Kierkegaard’s dialectic offers a framework for examining how photography may reconfigure the temporal dimension. In what ways do artists working with photography contribute to the temporal conditions that define repetition and recollection? How do these artists engage temporality, through the production, reception, and circulation of their works? What axis of time does photography propose when production today continues to accelerate the proliferation, duplication, and disposal of images? A selection of different practitioners will engage these questions at LA><ART, advancing discussions surrounding photographic practices today, as well as issues of image production more broadly.

    Sound and listening have been consistent elements in T Kelly Mason’s work spanning two decades. For Mason’s presentation at LA><ART, the artist reflects on the spatiotemporal dimension of sound in his work, with more recent projects including, “Rain Rain Rain" (2006), "Relay" (2007), “Stars, Stairs, Potemkin Exorcism” (2012), “Atmospheric” (2013), and his 2014 performance “Living in Volkswagen Buses (For Julian Beck).” Mason’s use of pre-recorded audio and sound installation is frequently employed to ask questions about the limits of perception, and the corporeal and cultural implications of acoustic space. While engaging with these questions over the course of his presentation, the artist will play a selection of recordings that inform his specific artistic projects, as well as his broader interests in the production, reception, and consumption of music and sound culture.

     
    T Kelly Mason’s presentation will be followed by a conversation with MOCA Senior Curator, Bennett Simpson.

    Slanguage will be LA><ART’s educational program in-residence for an ongoing period. Founded in 2002 by Karla Diaz and Mario Ybarra, Jr., Slanguage is headquartered in Wilmington, a working-class neighborhood of Los Angeles that is part of the harbor district. Current members make artwork, curate exhibitions, coordinate events, and lead art-education workshops. A diverse group at various points in their careers, Slanguage includes teenagers, street writers, and artists of all ages. The majority of these collaborators live and work in Wilmington.

    Slanguage bases their practice on a three-pronged approach to art-making to include education, community-building, and interactive exhibitions. Focusing on art education, the collective has organized numerous artist residencies in museums across the United States and abroad. Fostering dialog about the meaning and value of contemporary art, Slanguage has used their studio space and resources to cultivate relationships between diverse artists, students, communities, and organizations. And, creating artworks that have ranged from multimedia installations to performances, public events, and workshops, the collective has enriched, inspired, and provoked viewers’ imaginations through local, national, and international exhibitions.

    Slanguage’s recent projects include Engagement Party, a three-month residency with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2009); Sweeney Tate (2007) for the Tate Modern, London; and The Peacock Doesn’t See Its Own Ass/Let’s Twitch Again: Operation Bird Watching in London (2006) for the Serpentine Gallery, London. In 2009, the collective hosted workshops at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, as part of the Slanguage Teen Art Council. In 2012 Slanguage took over LA><ART’s galleries for 3 months and this is a continuation of our ongoing collaboration.

    LA><ART Educational Lab is made possible with the generous support of Lisa and Leonardo Schiff.

    LA><ART Loft Gallery is made possible with generous support of Joseph Varet and Esther Kim Varet.
