Kenneth Tam Film Screening at Virginia Ave Park

KENNETH TAM | Griffith Park Boys Camp

In the Artist Lab at 18th Street Arts Center, Kenneth Tam continues his ongoing interest in the social dynamics within all-male groups and the norms of masculine identity. Tam will use the American summer camp as both a conceptual frame and an actual site to investigate these interests. A uniquely American invention, the summer camp came out of a need to keep idle boys busy during the summer months, framing time outdoors as essential to properly raise healthy young men. It has evolved from an activity for the privileged into a rite-of-passage for children of all backgrounds, and its ubiquity speaks to how we continue to see play as essential in childhood but superfluous against the responsibilities of adulthood.

The centerpiece of Tam’s residency is a new video work involving participants gathered from online postings. The artist invited a group of adult, working-age men of all backgrounds to participate in a three-day experimental summer camp, filmed in May 2018 at the Griffith Park Boys Camp, an active campground located within the city of Los Angeles. At the camp, they engaged in activities that allowed them to temporarily reimagine their lives in ways not pressured by the strict social demands of waged work, or the shame of unemployment. These activities both approximate and wildly diverge from those found in a typical summer camp.

In late July and August, at the peak of the summer recreation season, Tam will premiere a single-channel version of the film at Virginia Avenue Park in Santa Monica’s Pico Neighborhood in an outdoor screening. Concurrently, from July 16 through September 14, Tam will develop and exhibit an installation in 18SAC’s Main Gallery incorporating a two-channel video that reframes the summer camp as an experimental space outside capitalist objectives and demands. Visitors will be invited to participate in Tam’s experimental camp activities within the gallery, and to reconsider their presumptions about play as positive and regenerative for children, but frivolous and gratuitous for adults.

The exhibition in 18th Street’s Main Gallery runs through September 14, 2018. The outdoor screening at Virginia Avenue Park is scheduled for July 27 at 7:30pm, with a reception at 18th Street on August 18 from 5-8 PM.

Paul Pescador | Going West, or 15 Years in Los Angeles

Paul Pescador | Going West, or 15 Years in Los Angeles
Exhibition & Artist Lab Residency | Main Gallery

Reception & Screening
June 9, 2018 | 5-8 PM

+ Daniel Canogar, Asia Sztencel, and Roey Victoria Heifetz
Visiting Artists in Residence | Open Studios

18th Street Arts Center presents an exhibition and Artist Lab Residency featuring the work of LA-based artist Paul Pescador. As part of this experimental residency, Pescador will produce a feature-length film emerging from a set of actions, gestures and images oriented around neighborhoods he has lived in since moving to Los Angeles. Pescador asks questions of himself and others about being a resident in Los Angeles through examining his own experiences and those of residents in each neighborhood. His work weaves in personal anecdotes about his personal experiences learning to live in a large metropolitan area, including past relationship heartbreaks, isolation, and “getting lost within a crowd.”

Pescador will initiate the project by trying to understand the socio-economic wealth of Santa Monica as a model for other Los Angeles neighborhoods, serving as both an aspirational image and as a source of anxiety over gentrification and displacement. Focusing specifically on the Pico neighborhood which surrounds 18th Street Art Center, he asks, does the popular version of Santa Monica exist in reality or is it more nuanced and complicated?

In the gallery, Pescador installs framed photographs based on his initial research, using a colorful palette and collage techniques. Over the residency period from April 23 through June 29, he will add additional objects, notes, and documentation, filling the space with a large collection of photographs and written texts by the end of June. Pescador also invites viewers to share their written and audio experiences of living in Los Angeles County and how they see their own neighborhood changing throughout the time they have lived there. These experiences will be incorporated into the artist’s research and source material for his film.
