Julian Rosefeldt’s Manifesto, in relation to the subjectivity of the body, Hollywood, and politics — Kelly Akashi discusses her art practice and recent show — What makes a good press release?
1. Writer’s Room
Host Lindsay Preston Zappas is joined by Carla contributor Christina Catherine Martinez to discuss her article from Carla Issue 15, “Eyes Without a Voice,” which considers Julian Rosefeldt’s Manifesto, an immersive video installation starring actress Cate Blanchett that was recently on view at Hauser & Wirth. We discuss Christina’s take on Manifesto and how issues of celebrity, politic, Hollywood production value, and the subjectivity of bodies play out (or don’t) in the work.
2. L.A. at Large
Lindsay is joined by LA-based artist Kelly Akashi to discuss her experience growing up in LA, her current show, Figure Shifter, on view at Ghebaly Gallery, the intricacies of her detailed process, and the importance of community.
