Los Angeles Art Resource will be going dark.
We want to thank those who have donated for their generosity and words of support for the past 4 years; we would not have been able to continue it without it. However, with incomplete funds it has become difficult to make the necessary changes and maintain LAAR. After much discussion the team has decided to end LAAR.
We will go completely dark by June 1st, 2015. Please save any information you’d like now and we wish you all the best of luck.
The LAAR Team
Eastside International (www.eastsideinternational.com) is hosting a GONG SHOW for the month of April.
Dates will be: April 4th, April 12th, April 19th and April 26th and we are looking for acts, stand-up, bizarre talents, experimental monologues, completely serious performance endeavors and anything that your heart can imagine for these dates.
This vaudeville-inspired, performance-based experiment pushes the boundaries of performance art, endurance work and critique settings by making judgement immediate and time and even more precious commodity.
The way the show will work is that performers will perform before an audience and before a panel of judges comprised of writers, curators, artists and minor celebrity personalities. They will be allowed to perform until either their act ends or the gong is struck by someone from the panel. After that time a grade will be given. At the end of the Gong Show trophies will be awarded to the winning and losing scores, which will be hand-made sculptures.
The last night will be a karaoke challenge as well as the trophy ceremony.
