Prison and Public Works- Films by Artist Screening

by N&R Thursday, Jan. 24, 2002 at 10:30 AM

LA Artist Nicole Cousino has been active around attempting to reform california three strikes laws. The show and discussion should be good.

N+R_LA hosts an evening of discussion on:





Thursday, January 24, 7pm

At: At C-Level in Chinatown

[DIRECTIONS TO C-LEVEL (directions below): In The Wobbly Alley

Between Chung King Road And Hill Street / Behind Full House

Restaurant / Past A Chicken Coop / Through A Red Door]

::NICOLE COUSINO's work explores issues of power, human agency and

representation. She just completed a documentary, "Concrete &

Sunshine", about California's burgeoning prison system and its impact

on individuals on both sides of the prison walls. The video also

calls attention to prisons as public works projects. In order to

provide a picture of life prior to the state's obsession with

incarceration she will be showing a Department of Transportation

film, "California? A State of Progress," which highlights

California's earlier, more productive forms of public works projects.

::ASHLEY HUNT is a Brooklyn based artist, his most recent work

centers around prisons and prison expansion, including a feature

documentary titled "Corrections," which centers around prison

privatization while examining the politics of prison expansion

throughout the United States. Hunt will present excerpts from his

documentary "Corrections," and will also show a new video titled

"Lockdowns Up" which addresses the response of the prison industry to

the events of 9-11 and the possibility of internment camps.

"Lockdowns Up" was recently featured as a part of the Call to Action

by Third World News Reel at Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

His work has been exhibited around the U.S. and internationally,

including the Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies (LACPS),

the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Non-Violent Social Change, the

Terra Museum of Art in Chicago, the Bandits-Images Film and Video

Festival in Bourges, France, and the International Art Expo 2000 in

Germany. Hunt was recently a fellow at the Whitney Museum of American

Art in New York.


1.Find yourself in front of "FULL HOUSE RESTAURANT" located at 963

N. Hill Street in Chinatown.[Map to Full House]

2. Locate the alley on the left hand side of Full House.

3. Walk about 20 feet down the alley (away from the street).

4. Stop.

5. Notice dumpster on your right hand side.

6. Take a right and continue down the alley.

7. Exercise caution so as not trip on the wobbly cement blocks underfoot

8. The entrance to C-Level is located 10 yards down on left side, behind

a red door, down a black staircase.



While competing definitions of "the global" and "the local" are being

thrown about in a myriad current political and economic debates, Los

Angeles continues, like most major cities, to house a constantly

fluctuating mass of natives, migrants and visitors. Even with the much

heralded isolation of LA "car culture", these populations meet, exchange

information, and share knowledge. Recognizing this fluid process as a

resource, NOMADS+RESIDENTS_LA organizes public discussions between people

who live in Los Angeles and people who visit the city. Taking its form and

motivation from NOMADS + RESIDENTS in New York City, NOMADS+RESIDENTS_LA

creates a network among people interested in

contemporary/political/intellectual discussions in the context of cultural

production. NOMADS+RESIDENTS_LA is organized by a group of artists,

writers and curators. Event locations will circulate throughout the city.


C-level is a co-operative lab formed to share physical, social and

technological resources. Members include artists, programmers, writers,

designers, agit-propers, filmmakers and reverse-engineers. Located in a

basement in Chinatown Los Angeles, C-level serves to host a variety of

events including screenings, performances, lectures, debates, and

tournaments. In addition, the c-level server provides a range of services

such as email, web based software applications and streaming media events.
