A panel discussion with world-renowned photographer Stephen Shore examining the La Brea Matrix, an exploration of the cross-cultural exchange between art photographers on both sides of the Atlantic that examines the iconic power of the photograph Shore took on the corner of La Brea Avenue and Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles on June 21, 1975.

– Programming for artLA projects will include:

. Dawn of Man and Nic Rad performances and installations, curated by TS+ Projects depicting a variety of looping scenes and short character vignettes, ranging from graffiti-writing grannies to dancing space-monkeys.

. Child-friendly lounge from Little Collector, which works with leading contemporary artists to produce kid friendly limited edition prints at wallet friendly prices (from luminaries such as Kenny Scharf, Shepard Fairey, Cynthia Rowley and others). Various artists will create illustrated books with kids to keep little art enthusiasts engaged.
