As part of its ongoing L.A. Xicano exhibitions in the Getty's city-wide Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980 initiative, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center will hold its first "Undocumented Event" at the Boyle Heights Farmers Market. This free event is coproduced by the Mobile Mural Lab (MML), a mobile art space created by Los Angeles-based artists to foster dialogue and engage community around matters of public art. L.A. Xicano artist Sandra de la Loza is a co-organizer of this event.
This Undocumented Event will engage issues around the Los Angeles mural moratorium, instituted in 2002 but currently under review by the City Council for possible revision. The MML truck will include a question-driven chalkboard piece for public commentary, outdoor video screenings, a mini-exhibit and research center, and dialogue with artists about the history of muralism in Los Angeles and its role in community development.
Future Undocumented Events will cover paper fashion, music, and the visual arts, and will be announced through social media only 24 hours in advance. Events will take place at public sites between December 2, 2011 and February 26, 2012, the date the last L.A. Xicano exhibitions will close. For more on the L.A. Xicano project, visit our Facebook page.
The Undocumented Event series is supported through a grant from the California Community Foundation.
