Patty Chang's List of Fears
LA based artist Patty Chang has been creating new video work for 18th Street Arts Center, with scripts she is writing based on fears submitted by people who live or work in the Santa Monica or broader Los Angeles region. The fears will be recited on-camera or live by one or more performers for the artist’s solo exhibition at 18th Street in 2020. This work will be going to other places in the near future, so if you are outside of LA, you are welcome to fill out the form as well - just indicate your current city.
The exhibition was originally planned to open May of 2020, but due to the COVID-19 situation and lockdown as of March, it will open sometime later in 2020 (hopefully summer). In the meantime, Chang has re-opened her call for fears, especially those responsive to our post-pandemic world. She will be making new work in collaboration with performers working remotely and creating new scripts out of these fresh fears. We will take submissions until April 20th.
If you participated in the past, feel free to resubmit your fears, or participate for the very first time. It will really only take 5 minutes and will be totally anonymous in the final script.Thank you for sharing this with us, and we hope it helps you find some solace that great art often arises from times of crisis.
