LACMA's year-long celebration and exploration of food, art, politics and culture comes to a close today with the all-day event—Let Them EATLACMA.
Curated by LAist favs the Fallen Fruit art collective, there's a day-long program featuring more than 50 artists, collectives, musicians and performers doing things that have probably never been done on the LACMA campus before.
Check out just a small sampling of what's planned:
- Fallen Fruit with Eva Posey and Katie Newcom are presenting the performance/installation Ms. Pacman Eats LACMA as well as a fruit drop;
- Veronica Gonzalez reads a short story "Through the Raw Meat" about a girl in love with a butcher, but this love story doesn't have a happy ending;
- Jeanne Dunning hosts a tomato fight featuring 10 performers and 10,000 ripe tomatoes;
- Miss Barbie-Q hosts a Watermelon Eating Contest;
- Slanguage collective offers Prison Gourmet where an inmate wearing a chef’s hat offers tiny food samples to the public and presenting recipes created by prison inmates;
- A 15-minute sing-a-long with Phranc.
- Machine Project leads an Electric Melon Drum Circle with the participating their instruments at the end of the performance.
- And performance artist Anna Oxygen will be leading psychedelic aerobics to close out the day and exercise the calories consumed throughout the event.
