About

LACMA | BCAM, Level 1
Free; tickets required

Join artist Stan Douglas and LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director Michael Govan as they discuss Douglas’s innovative hybrid of cinema and theater, "Helen Lawrence." Conceived and directed by Douglas, this film noir is produced in real time as actors on a stage are composited live into virtual sets of Vancouver circa 1948. In this conversation, Govan and Douglas will talk about the making of "Helen Lawrence," and the role of history, narrative, and temporal and spatial displacements in the artist’s practice.

On October 13 and 14, "Helen Lawrence" will be presented for the first time on the West Coast at Royce Hall by UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance. LACMA members receive a 15% discount on tickets to "Helen Lawrence." E-mail membership@lacma.org for discount code.
