CANCELLED – see comments! >On Saturday December 12th from 8:30am to 4:30pm, artist Vlatka Horvat will be performing on the Los Angeles River at Fletcher Drive. There should be good views from the new bike path undercrossing under construction. Per the Outpost for Contemporary Art‘s description:
During this performance, the artist will continuously rearrange 50 chairs over a period of eight hours into different configurations that suggest human encounters and interactions. Its visually arresting and should be an interesting sight to see. Viewers are welcome to come and go as they please.
