August 12, 2019

L.A. Rebellion

Art + Practice

In a perfect confluence of art historical assessments, “Time Is Running Out of Time: Experimental Film and Video From the L.A. Rebellion and Today” examines the innovation and legacy of black video artists active in Los Angeles in the 1960s through ’80s, as well as their influence on subsequent generations. Showing historical and in some cases more contemporary work from members of the film arts collective known as L.A. Rebellion alongside newer voices in the community and the genre, “Time Is Running Out of Time” is both a celebration and a seminar. As much as our modern world is obsessed with video stories and engaged with inclusive storytelling, it’s good to pause and appreciate the pioneers of that modernity’s experimental origins
