Michael Quistrebert - The Eighth Sphere, 2010.

Artists Talk with Pierre-Laurent Cassiere and Michael Quistrebert

Join us for a very special presentation by French artists Michael Quistrebert and Pierre-Laurent Cassiere, moderated by LACE Curator-in-Residence Martha Kirszenbaum.

Cassiere and Quistrebert will present work and discuss both their individual practices as well as the projects they will be exhibiting as part of The End of the Night in the fall.

The End of the Night is the second exhibition in a two-part exhibition cycle Kirszenbaum will research and develop during her residency at LACE. This pair of exhibitions explores the visual influence of two major experimental filmmakers: one French, Henri-Georges Clouzot, and one American, Kenneth Anger. The first project, La Fin de la Nuit, will take place at the Palais de Tokyo (21 June  – 9 September 9, 2013), and frames an exploration of Los Angeles-based artists through the prism of Kenneth Anger’s aesthetics. The second exhibition in the cycle, The End of the Night, will open at LACE in the fall (16 October – 15 December 2013) and will examine the impact of Clouzot’s unfinished film L’Enfer on notions of visual and sound experimentation, the kinetic, and optical illusions in contemporary French art.
