Occidental’s Media Arts and Culture Program and Freewaves, we present the Oxy Freewaves Salon, exhibiting a series of student-produced documentaries that frame questions about community in greater Los Angeles. The event also features video projections onto the outer walls of the Herrick Chapel from Out The Window: a collection of site-specific videos produced for the LA Metro buses by Los Angeles artists.
Why a Salon?
Tonight's event coincides with Occidental College’s 125th Anniversary and an 1887 Carnival celebration. The 19th century salon was meant as a social space where individuals could form community and debate the pressing cultural questions of the day. We invite you to relax in our outdoor salon and converse the video makers and members of the Occidental and Los Angeles communities about the issues raised in tonight's media works.
