EPFC | July 29th, 2016
Check out EPFC’s front window over the next few weeks and you will see a compelling documentary that transforms 100 murder sites in Los Angeles into art.
As part of LA’s Public Art Biennial Current:LA, Mexican Artist Teresa Margolles created La Sombra (“The Shade”), a large temporary monument in Echo Park that used water gathered from the cleansing of these murder sites as part of its construction.
The sculpture is currently on view at the north east corner of Echo Park Lake. In addition to screening at EPFC, the documentary is also showing at various shops in Echo Park including El Clasico Tattoo and Eyla Hair Salon.
