The public is invited to bring an article of clothing they no longer want, outgrew, never liked, or just want to have immortalized. Tell the story of your contribution. Exchange it for another item donated by another participant or by local businesses like the MODAC Museum of Fashion Designers and Creators and American Apparel. This exchange will be documented and credited ( unless you choose to remain anonymous ) and it will become part of the HOMESITE multifaceted interdisciplinary art installation. note: Any “contribution” not used in the exchange will be donated to a local charity.
HOMESITE (pronounced Home-site or Home-City), is the multifaceted interdisciplinary art installation conceived of in 1990 by artists Joyce Dallal and Lauren M. Kasmer investigating the city of Los Angeles, it’s history and environment, as home. The public’s participation has always played a key role in their art project. After the artists received a City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department grant, The HOMESITE Art installation made its’ debut at the Westside Pavilion in July 1992, in one of malls’ non-occupied retail storefront windows. It then continued to be displayed, ever growing and changing, in primarily non traditional spaces, countywide, spanning San Pedro to Woodland Hills, until it was last exhibited at the Japanese-American Museum in 1998.
In anticipation of HOMESITE’s 20th anniversary and the inclusion of the historical artwork in the “Actions, Conversations, and Intersections” exhibition, at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall in January 2010, two new public participatory projects will expand the art installation. You are invited to participate.
