Facing the Music
Past event


Guest curator: Allan Sekula

A five-year long project by James Baker, Anthony Hernandez, Karin Apollonia Müller, Allan Sekula and Billy Woodberry, Facing the Music investigates the urban fabric of downtown Los Angeles in the wake of the construction of the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The artists worked outward from the main entrance of the Concert Hall at First Street and Grand Avenue to explore the intersection of the new axis of culture and official spirituality and the older axis of government and official media in Los Angeles. The exhibition includes photography, digital media and video projection, as well as a lecture series.

Facing the Music is generously supported by a research grant from The J. Paul Getty Trust. Additional support for the exhibition is made possible by The Pasadena Art Alliance and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
