Reframing the House of Dust: Activations
On Friday, March 23, “Reframing the House of Dust: Activations,”– a performance event free and open to the public – will take place on campus in the newly built House of Glass, a response to the House of Dust that was designed and built by faculty students in January 2018. For the event, Knowles herself will conduct one of her signature Fluxus performances, Newspaper Music, along with newly commissioned work by an international roster of artists and reinterpretations of scores by CalArts faculty and students.
The new house was designed in four days and erected in a little over 12 hours. Later in the year, a section of it will be transported to the MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House in Los Angeles to be part of an exhibition and related events co-curated by Jacquin and Pluot, curators of Art by Translation and Anna Milone, curator of France Los Angeles Exchange (FLAX).
This event is presented by the CalArts MA Aesthetics and Politics Program in the School of Critical Studies, in partnership with Art by Translation, the MAK Center for Art and Architecture and France Los Angeles Exchange (FLAX).
