In 2013, Los Angeles-based Machine Project and Paris-based Mains d’Œuvres, both cutting-edge alternative art spaces in their respective cities, are pairing up for Los Angeles Chez Vous ! Paris at Your Home ! An international artist- and gallery-exchange program of public performances in private homes.
An experiment in curation, context-trading, and the possibilities of public art, Los Angeles Chez Vous ! / Paris at Your Home ! is an unprecedented re-imagining of the home as both a site of cultural production and a locus for public exchange. Domestically and internationally scaled, the project creates a new kind of partnership with its artists and public, through a distinctly 21st-century model of cultural institutional networks.
Emily Joyce, Dawn Kasper, Emily Lacy, Luke Fischbeck, the experimental meditation center of los angeles, Nate Page.
