Let them eat LACMA: Bitter melons, Spam, fish tacos and radishes on Sunday
All year long the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has been featuring EatLACMA, where food meets art, performance and music in all kinds of bizarre ways. Sunday from 12-8 is the huge culminating exhibition across the entire Wilshire Blvd. campus. It's free with museum admission, and the events are too extensive to list them all. But there's exhibits from locals like Fallen Fruit, Machine Project (doing the electric melon drum circle), Islands of L.A. and Materials and Applications's Didier Hess doing a fish taco harvest and performances by Ann Magnuson, Anna Homler, Ronee Blakely, Karen Black and Phranc.
At 2:30 and 3:30, Jonathan Gold reads "Spam, the American Meat," written especially for the occasion.
Oh yeah, and also a watermelon eating contest, tomato fight, prison food tasting and much more -- see the full program here.
