September 30, 2016 -- Those who want to immerse themselves in art can do so by literally diving into the Annenberg Community Beach House pool next month, City officials announced this week.
"Snorkel Dreams: A Machine Project Guide to Art Underwater" -- a free exhibit Friday through Sunday, October 14 to 16 at noon, 2 and 4 p.m. -- showcases artworks "optimized for subaquatic viewing," organizers said."As a public art project, Snorkel Dreams explores the public pool as an unexpected place to engage with creative expression," organizers said in a statement.
Among the well-known and emerging artists whose works will be on display are Andrew Cannon, Jessica Cowley, Bob Dornberger, Emily Joyce, Alice Könitz, Candice Lin, Becca Lofchie, Johnston Marklee, Jennifer Moon & Laub, Paul Pescador, Jen Rochlin, Sune Woods, Kim Ye, Patricia Yossen, Mallen&Gray and Machine Project with Grace Eunchong.
Founded in 2005 by artist and curator Mark Allen, Machine Project offers "a place for artists to do fun experiments together with the public in ways that influence culture," organizers said.
The project has collaborated with arts institutions across the country, including the Hammer Museum, the Walker Art Center, LACMA, MCA Denver, MOCA and the Tang Museum. www.machineproject.com
