P2P Project Feedback Session
Hosted by Lara Salmon
Thursday, February 14th 2019, 7pm SomoS presents a new Peer to Peer Project Feedback Session, this time hosted by performance artist Lara Salmon (Los Angeles, USA). The session is open to artists, curators, and creatives of any background who would like to receive feedback on their work.
At each session, artists and curators comment on each other’s work in an outspoken and constructive manner, with the presence of a moderator. The purpose of the session is to create a casual but focused atmosphere, in which creators get the opportunity to share their own work-in-progress and challenges, and at the same time to critique their peers.
The session is free of charge. Capacity is limited to 8-10 people per session so registration in advance is required.
In case you’re interested, please confirm your participation by emailing
email@example.com. We will confirm your participation.
Please bring documentation of your work in any shape or format. There will be a video projector available. Physical work is welcome as well.
About the host Lara Salmon:
Lara Salmon (1987) is an artist from San Diego, California, who works and lives in Los Angeles. She received her BA from the University of California Berkeley and her MFA from Claermont Graduate University. During her studies at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon, she was introduced to Performance art. This medium became central to her work due to its unique potential to disrupt reality and challenge habitual patterns.
Salmon’s work addresses complex social and political issues such as migration. Salmon’s personal experiences living and studying in the Middle East as well as doing refugee assistance work in California and Jordan had an important effect on her art, which aims to further public understanding of the circumstances of the refugees.
She has exhibited in cities such as Los Angeles, Claremont, Istanbul, London, and Beirut. Besides performance, Salmon also produces multi-media work, such as Blood Film (2012), which was awarded as the Best Experimental Short for the “Columbia Gorge International Film Festival” among other awards.
Salmon was a SomoS Artist-in-Residence in Summer 2018 working on her durational performance and solo exhibition, r/evolving, presented at the end of her residency. She has returned to SomoS for the month of February 2019 for a new performance, in collaboration with artist Regina Mamou (Los Angeles) on Feb. 27th. This performance will draw from both artist’s recent experiences at artist residencies in Beirut and Morocco.
