And on Saturday THE LA BREA MATRIX: A Panel Discussion, 3:00-5:00pm, at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. This event is free to the public. Tickets are available one hour in advance at the Photo LA box office.
THE LA BREA MATRIX project explores the complex relationship and cross-cultural exchange between art photographers on both sides of the Atlantic. At its core the project is questioning the iconic power of the photograph Stephen Shore took on the corner of La Brea Avenue and Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles on June 21, 1975.
For the project, six German photographers were invited to Los Angeles to create a new body of work that searches for photographic points of reference to Shore's landmark picture.
This program brings together Stephen Shore with core individuals involved in THE LA BREA MATRIX including Jens Liebchen, Oliver Sieber, Markus Schaden, and Christianne Dearborn, along with photography collector Manfred Heiting to present for the first time the new photographs taken in Los Angeles and discuss the project in depth.
