Conceived by the Feitelsons, seminal Los Angeles Modernist painters, and their friends, as a way to give encouragement to artists early in their careers by offering financial grants; it is issued in conjunction with the City of Los Angeles, C.O.L.A., Individual Artist Fellowships to twelve exemplary mid-career international artists.
Congratulations and good luck to all participating artists.
…for the 2011 Feitelson Arts Fellowship, multi-disciplinary artist—and CB2 Santa Monica team member—Nuttaphol Ma combined references to Sam Cooke’s ‘A Change is Gonna Come’ with a performance where he, Ma, set sail with a boat over his head on May Day from Badwater Basin to the trailhead of Mt. Whitney.
…the approximately 130-mile personal odyssey meditates on the ebbs and flows of our existence, the power and the abuse of power subjected upon the powerless, the dreams of leaving and the dreams of roots. Ma’s installation distills the performance to a two channel video projected onto sewn fabric walls.
…to learn more about the installation, check out Ma’s website or experience it by visiting the gallery.
…thanks to julio, CB2 sample handler, for the heads up on this one.
