Every evening, the Streetview Video Series will showcase work by local artists on a loop in our Black Box space. Drop by to see the videos through our street-facing window on York Boulevard. The full videos will be archived on our YouTube page for viewing.

The Streetview Video Series offers a platform to artists who may not currently have access to traditional venues to screen their work. The project includes work from the artist coalition In Plain Sight, recent MFA grads from Los Angeles institutions, established video artists and work from our local media arts partners.

Although these videos were made many years prior to Covid-19, they provide a unique lens to contemplate artists' views of being separate and together during our current quarantine. How connected are we? Opinions vary.

A compilation of images from Pau Pescador's "Breathless"

Breathless by Pau Pescador

August 3 - August 10, 2020

Breathless is a single-channel installation as the artist travels by car through Los Angeles during March-May 2020. The video captures empty streets of the metropolitan city in the midst of a global pandemic, while Pescador reflects on personal exchanges over the past few months as well as upon the history of past pandemics which have affected Los Angeles. The video's title references both the respiratory illness of COVID-19 as well as the 1960 Godard film of the same name. A film about a couple who moves through a city as one of them is on the verge of being arrested and killed. Told through live-action, hard-drawn animation and found footage, Breathless speaks to heightened stress that affects one's day to day as they try to move through the world at this moment.

Pau Pescador is an artist, filmmaker, performer and writer. They graduated with an MFA from University of California, Irvine and a BA from the University of Southern California. Select exhibitions and screenings include: X-TRA Online; Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); The Pit, Glendale; 18th Street Art Center, Santa Monica; UV Estudios, Buenos Aires; gallery1993, Los Angeles; Coastal/Borders, Getty Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA at Angels Gate Cultural Center; Ashes/Ashes, Park View, The Main Museum, and gallery1993, all Los Angeles. Their first collection of writing, CRUSHES: A NOVELLA, was published by Econo Textual Objects in Spring 2017.

(d(e)volve) by Carole Kim

July 20 - August 2, 2020

(d(e)volve) was born out of Carole Kim's recent focus on developing new live drawing tools by creating custom particle systems. Kim links these new "brushes" to her ongoing love of drawing and the micro-sensitivity of the gesture. Trails form floating clusters, momentarily obfuscate then dematerialize. For Kim, producing (d(e)volve) was an online performance through attentive improvisation with longtime collaborator and sound designer Paul Chavez, exploring the means that are available for continued connection in the current moment.⁣

Carole Kim is a visual artist whose primary focus is on video projection for multi-media installation, performance, and photography. Her practice highlights the intersection of technology and the physical world.⁣

Paul Chavez is active in the Los Angeles creative community as a composer, instrumentalist and sound designer, leveraging his technical background to create immersive sound designs and scores. He often works under the project name FeltLike.⁣

Documentation from the In Plain Sight Launch (July 3/4/5, 2020)

July 6 - July 12, 2020

Over Independence Day weekend 2020, In Plain Sight launched a nationwide project. Fleets of skytyping planes spelled out artist-generated messages over 80 detention centers, immigration courts, borders, and other sites of historic relevance. As the planes soared, they made visible in the sky what is too often unseen and unspoken on the ground: the appalling, profoundly immoral, imprisonment of immigrants. Visit to learn more about the 80 detention sites, participating artists and for ways you can help end immigrant detention.
