Come and draw with Christine Beebe and Laura Pardini in the Interior Forest.
Saturday, May 25, 6 – 9pm
18th Street Arts Center
As part of Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest, Alexandra Grant’s residency at 18th Street Arts Center, she has invited both the public and other artists to lead drawing sessions to join her in illustrating Hélène Cixous’s book “Philippines”.
Christine Beebe is a director/producer and founder of La Turista Films and is based in Los Angeles. She has just completed, FELIX AUSTRIA!, a documentary film about American aesthete Felix Pfeifle who sets out to find and save the last heir of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but along the way discovers that the real ticking bomb is his own mortality. Before this, she produced ThinkFilm’s FUCK, a documentary about censorship in America. Beebe received her MFA from CalArts’ Film Directing Program and her BA in Political Science from Bates College.
Laura Pardini is a French artist doing a three-month internship in Los Angeles (and in the Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest). Laura is finishing up her studies at the Ecole supérieure d’art et design (ESAD) Grenoble-Valence, where she helps run the student group Tòst (http://association-tost.fr/).
