blackbox

The black box was an 11 night platform for performance and gathering created and organized by Liz Glynn. The installation featured three different spaces for engaging and presenting performance—a bar with a public stage and piano, a large open warehouse space, and an intimate back room. All performances were unannounced, the artists unlisted. The architecture for the space, designed by Glynn, as well as the programming was loosely structured around Public Spirit, the first performance art festival staged in Los Angeles in 1980, organized by the Highland Art Agents. Many artists from the original festival appeared, along with over 60 artists and musicians, for over 4,200 guests. In the spirit of the original festival, Glynn encouraged the participating artists to take risks with difficult and challenging performance. black box was produced as part of the J. Paul Getty Museum’s Paci c Standard Time Performance Art and Public Art Festival and organized by LA>
