In Plain Site: Los Angeles | Conversation with Elizabeth Diller, Susan Rosenberg, and Kristy Edmunds@ The Oculus Hall at The Broad Date: March 6th, 2017
To kick off Trisha Brown Dance Company’s weeklong Los Angeles residency organized by CAP UCLA, The Broad is pleased to present a conversation between architect Elizabeth Diller, principal-in-charge of The Broad’s design, and Susan Rosenberg, Consulting Historical Scholar at TBDC, moderated by Kristy Edmunds, Executive and Artistic Director of CAP UCLA. Diller, Rosenberg, and Edmunds will discuss the play between architecture, dance, and visual art in both Brown’s and Diller’s respective creative practices. The conversation will also explore how Brown’s choreography shaped the experimental performances of 1970s and ‘80s New York, which in turn influenced Diller’s approach to architecture and design.
A book signing with Susan Rosenberg will take place after the discussion. Trisha Brown: Choreography as Visual Art (Wesleyan, 2016) will be available for purchase at the program.

Tony Oursler worked with artists including John Baldessari, and embraced the notion of starting with an idea and then moving to a formal expression of the idea. His concern with the consequences of television and the moving image on psychology and personal relationships was his starting point. This demanded an expanded vision of what art making could be and what could be presented in a gallery setting. After working through painting, single-channel video, and various installation strategies, Oursler succeeded in creating a hybrid of multiple media for the utmost critical and psychological impact. Oursler has a dynamic video practice that combines and expands the confrontational installations of Nam June Paik and Bruce Nauman, the countercultural analysis of Mike Kelley and Jim Shaw, and the impact of mass media on the individual. Oursler’s most famous works feature videos projected onto three-dimensional objects, like stuffed heads. These works are metaphors for both alienated, isolated modern individuals in a technology-driven culture and real encounters intended to trigger feelings of empathy and understanding in viewers. The Broad collection includes six of Tony Oursler’s works; Dust (2006) is on view in the collection installation Creature, through March 19, 2017.

Rapper Daveed Diggs, most well-known for his role in Broadway's Hamilton, comes together with producers Jonathan Snipes and William Hutson as clipping. to perform their abrasive brand of rap music. L.A.-based noise rock group Prissy Whip will open the evening with their dissonant guitar tones, frenetic drumming and unpredictable song structures that are simultaneously confrontational and compassionate.
The Broad is pleased to present commissioned, site-specific performances by Juliana Snapper and Bora Yoon – both of whom were on Huffington Post’s recent list of “Fourteen Artists Who Are Transforming the Future of Opera.” Snapper’s At Each Other’s Throats approaches the building as a body, its interior of vaulted curves and tunneling orifices like an enormous throat and mouth, waiting to speak. Assisted by two choirs, Snapper taps into the resonant frequencies of the building, intrinsic pitches audible only when certain sounds are breathed into them. Bora Yoon has created a new work for The Broad that endeavors to literally shift the perspective of the audience by performing in multiple spaces within the museum. As spectators follow her and the visual surroundings change, a re-contextualization of the aural element of her performance naturally occurs.
Tickets to this program include same-night access before the program to the museum's galleries starting at 5:30 p.m. Please note that the museum will close to the public as usual at 8 p.m. before doors to the performance open at 8:30 p.m.
