Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival
Kit Galloway and Sherrie Rabinowitz like to think of themselves as "instigators,"
and they instigated themselves up a storm during the Summer Olympics
in Los Angeles. They set up their Electronic Cafe project with money
from the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art at five ethnic restaurants
in Los Angeles, with the idea of reflecting the cultural diversity of
both the city and the Olympic Games contained therein.
People at the five restaurants,
as well as at the museum, could -- and did --exchange drawings, photos,
poems, and messages to cafegoers at other locations, via the video/computer/robot
Galloway says that restaurant
owners gave up table space -- table space, in Los Angeles, during the
Olympics ! -- because they wanted to "do something for the community."
If this is instigation, please, may we have more?
