Video Installation: Ericka Beckman’s Frame UP
Lecture Room, 5–9 pm
As the new Walker rose from a hole in the ground to become a shimmering cube on the landscape, artist-in-residence Ericka Beckman captured hundreds of hours of its construction on film. See Frame UP, her pinball-game inspired work, on view all evening.
Artist Talk: Ed Templeton
Cinema, 7 pm
The life of a teenager in Southern California isn’t as glamorous as the Fox drama The O.C. depicts. A product of Southern California living, Ed Templeton’s art encompasses the daily life of this professional skateboarder/artist amid strip malls, beaches, and youth culture. For this talk, Templeton discusses how his surroundings inform his painting, photography, and graphic design and presents segments from Good & Evil, a skateboarding film by his skate company Toy Machine, and Deformer, a documentary about his life by Mike Mills.
