" For if [ Hollywood ] has become the archetypal site of masssive and unprotesting
subordination of industrialized intelligentsias to the programs of capital, it has also
been fertile soil for some of the most acute critiques of the culture of late capitalism..."
Mike Davis in "City of Quartz"
Great book, but this art show's critique of Hollywood is more fun and less academic --lots of pissed off and wacky ironic art from a diverse group of artists - Ernesto Torres, Lisa Freedom, and Frank Sosa's 8yr old kid.
Drop by and pick up some lots of free anti-Hollywood stickers (original designs for the paintings in the show) and help in the local campaign to DESTROY HOLLYWOOD!! (or at least subvert it)
Visit the film center Mon - Fri 12-5pm or go to one of their film nights.
And don't forget your free stickers...
BURN HOLLYWOOD BURN!! ART SHOW
at the Echo Park Film Center
1200 N. Alvarado Street (NE corner of Sunset and Alvarado)
Call (213)484-8846 for schedules and directions, or go to http://www.echoparkfilmcenter.org
exhibit runs til the end of January!
The film center supports independent filmmaking - they fix old movie cameras and projectors, provide low cost
filmmaking classed to local adults and FREE filmmaking classed to Echo Park local kids! They also show
underground films, many of which are activist - oriented. It's an amazing place and we all should support it - it's volunteer run and non profit and right next to 33 1/3 Books (great radical bookshop) and Labor Fruit ( all hand made one of a kind clothing and jewelry - former Luna Sol people).
