LA Freewaves

Pasadena Art Alliance

Freewaves creates public media art events that bring diverse audiences and independent media artists together in dialogue on current issues.  Media arts include the work of artists who use communication technology – video, film, the web, and mobile devices.

The grant will support Dis…Miss, a two-year project to support a public visual art experience with digital media and performance art components. Dis….Miss will explore gendered images and messages from artists’ perspectives to address intersectional feminist issues, actually confronting inequalities and stereotypes.  The audience engagements take the form of screenings, workshops and discussions in the greater Los Angeles area and beyond. This project, beginning in June 2017 will culminate with an opening in February 2018.
