the static city of Los Angeles a steadily moving city exists. Living in
often equates to living in a car, as many people spend hours each day
in long distance
commutes and unavoidable traffic jams.
Exploring the car as a “living room” as well as a symbol of
personal freedom, identity,
and privacy, a group-show was developed, where exhibitions and performances
place within a convoy of vehicles.
This driving exhibition poses the question of what happens when the rooms
of a fixed
museum begin to independently circulate and find their way to the city
and its residents.
15 Local and international artists were generating their own work within
a car interior.
The relationship between the car, the human being, and the city was a
connecting various works and approaches.
For one whole day on August 26th 2006, the mobile exhibition, consisting
units, did start from one point and swarmed out into the city and its
traffic, had a merging
point at the parking deck of Arc Light Movie Theater, another one in front
of the closed
gates of Dodger Stadium and last stop in downtown Los Angeles.
There, the end of the action was celebrated with many guests in a huge
a developing Cold Storage space. All cars were circling in a round before
in formation. Videos of the different performances, made during the day,
projected on the large concrete walls. (see documentation)
