LA AIR 2: Rick Bahto Thurday October 27th 2011, 20h Echo Park Film Center 1200 N. Alvarado Street, 90026, Los Angeles, California
LA AIR is a new artist-in-residence program that invites Los Angeles filmmakers to utilize Echo Park Film Center resources in creating a new work over a four-week period.
October’s resident, Rick Bahto, has an on-going series of films that are made in response to the work of other artists. The screening will present this portion of Bahto’s films alongside the work of the artists to whom they are dedicated, with films and slide documentation of works by Karen Johannesen, Pablo Valencia, and Paul Clipson. He will also present films, slides, and audio documents of performances of the work of Mark So, including documentary footage of his performance of So’s work parallel to the earth (in the angles where the grass writing goes on), which was begun in mid-September and will continue on indefinitely.
