Reframing The House of Dust : Activations
Curated by Maud Jacquin, Sébastien Pluot, and Janet Sarbanes.
An afternoon and evening of activations of the House of Glass, newly constructed on the CalArts campus as part of a semester-long reconsideration of Alison Knowles’s 1967-71 House of Dust project. Current faculty, students, and guest artists performed pieces scored or inspired by Knowles and other Fluxus artists who once taught at CalArts. Knowles herself participated in performances of her iconic scores Newspaper Music and Make a Salad.
Presented and sponsored by the CalArts MA Aesthetics and Politics Program and Art by Translation in collaboration with the MAK Center for Art and Architecture and France Los Angeles Exchange (FLAX).
