TRANSMISSION LA: AV DIARIES AT GEFFEN CONTEMPORARY OPENING RECAP
If you haven’t seen the Mike D-curated Transmission LA: AV Diaries at the Geffen Contemporary yet, you are missing out. Make sure you don’t miss out completely, as the 17-day festival shuts its doors permanently on May 6th. Until then, however, the doors are open to the public and the Beastie Boy brought some of his most talented friends into a museum show that proves what site-specific installation work can be if given the room to breathe. Luckily for all, the Sky Ladder display (which carries a very sublime ambience when walking out of the almost Wonka’s Chocolate Factory feeling of the Mike D show) is open to the public while this show is up, and it’s also not to be missed.
Tom Sachs, Peter Coffin, Jim Drain & Ara Peterson, Ben Jones, and Lauren Mackler of Public Fiction each draw heavily from music in their displays, and Mike D even uses the new Mercedes as a canvas in a dazzling light show. Free musical performances happen every night at around 7:30 at the museum, as well, which is also a sort of outdoor patio for Kogi BBQ, which has a truck posted up at the museum’s entrance.
Check out video recaps and find details and a list of musical performances below.
