Jennifer Moran, Brian Janeczko, Enci Box and Aurisha Smolarski present the collaborative project, In the Living Room of LA’s Bicycle Culture, highlighting a small aspect of bike culture with the audience invited to be participants.
The installation puts the culture on display, and includes discussions, creations and interactions in an ever evolving format, mimicking the dynamic bicycle culture in Los Angeles.
The Exhibit includes an on-going, rotating series of participatory events:
Various artists exhibit artwork that serve as the “living room” decor fabricated out of bicycles.
The Echo Park Film Center screens a series of videos with films addressing anything and everything about bicycle culture.
Part of the “living room” is a bicycle workshop where visitors can learn how to fix flats and basic bicycle maintenance.
