Cauleen Smith: The Way Out Is the Way Two. Thursday, March 12, 2015, 7:00 pmMOCA, 250 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012In person: Cauleen SmithThe Way Out Is the Way Two: Fourteen Short Films About Chicago and Sun Ra is a feature-length constellation of experimental psychogeographic films on Sun Ra, improvisation, and creative music. Revolving around cosmic jazz composer Sun Ra’s time in Chicago, from 1945-1961, this lyrical, sci-fi, history lesson moves freely between quasi-narrative, documentary, and performance practices. These frequent jumps between idioms create a vibrating tension, oscillating between art and life, joy and mourning, hope and paranoia. Smith will be in attendance to discuss her work.
