Public programs include individual artist talks, panels, short film screenings, and exhibition walkthroughs. Programs are organized to coincide with museum-curated exhibitions on view at Art + Practice.
As an emerging Los Angeles-based artist, May Sun performed with Senga Nengudi, Maren Hassinger and Ulysses Jenkins, amongst others, in the 1980s. These artists were in each other’s performance pieces and together, they experimented with movement in space in choreographer Rudy Perez’ workshop Art Moves, which took place in Ulysses Jenkins’ Other Visions Studios.
At Art + Practice, Sun will relive her collaborations with her life-long friends as well as explore select works from her multi-media large scale installations focusing on the first wave of Chinese immigrants to California. Additionally, Sun will present her and collaborator/filmmaker Juri Koll’s short film titled “Meltdown: Weapons of Mass Construction,” a film responding to the ongoing murders of innocent people across the United States and the immediate need to reform gun control legislation. Join Art + Practice for this artist talk, screening and conversation.
