Machine Project is a loose group of artist/performer collaborators who do projects together when invited by other people and institutions, usually museums. Even though it is half their name, the word “Project” is loosely defined. Most of the time, it means an institution has asked us them to do something to explore their space. Sometimes, they explore a topic on their own, like ping-pong. Sometimes, they turn their store-front into a forest.
Funding will be used to help support the print series “Machine Project 2016 Public Posters Project,” in which Machine Project will commission ten Southern California designers to create posters for a public performance and workshop series. It is the hope that the posters will engage the city and national parks throughout the Los Angeles area. The project will run from Spring 2016 through Fall 2016.
