Pride Publics

Oct 09, 3 PM - 7 PM — ends Oct 24, 2021
On Saturday, October 9 starting at 3pm PST, you're invited to the exhibition opening for "Pride Publics: Words and Actions" at the Los Angeles State Historic Park. The program features new, site-specific performances by performance artist Yozmit, Marval A Rex, and Peter Kalisch.
About the Performances
Transgender singer-songwriter, performance artist, and designer Yozmit will present WALK – a silent, durational, meditative walk in monochromatic and sculptural costumes which will lead to a live performance of songs from her recent album, Sun Moon Door.
Performance artist and curator Marval A Rex becomes Marilyn Monroe (or does she become him?) in MARILYN MON REX, a timed, performative meditation drenched in the violence of "fame," exploring the psycho-spatial ramifications of Hollywood on urban working populations in Los Angeles.
Using the Los Angeles State Park as a symbolic jump-off, 25-year old visual/ performance artist Peter Kalisch will explore the lessons he learned through last year’s intense journey of self reflection, as noise, chaos, pain, struggle, heartbreak have transformed into growth.
