The Desert/Ocean program pairs two iconic experimental films of the 1960s: Walter De Maria’s Hardcore and Michael Snow’s Wavelengthboth of which address the expansive landscapes of the ocean and the desert in unexpected ways through sound and vision. De Maria once observed that “the desert is the most aesthetic place in the world, outside of the ocean, maybe more than the ocean.” Taking up this provocation, the screenings will be followed by a conversation between Jane McFadden and James Nisbet, two of the leading scholars of De Maria’s artwork, and moderated by Jennifer King, LACMA’s associate curator of contemporary projects.

Every year LACMA provides free admission (and a free bus!) to take many disadvantaged and grateful folks to Andell Family Sundays!
