In March 2012 I began a series at the Echo Park Film Center called the New Works Salon. I intend for the series to be a casual forum for artists to present new works in film, video, performance, and sound, and to engage in discussion with the audience and their peers. In programming each salon, I have attempted to bring together artists working in different aesthetics and methods, coming from different backgrounds, and from all stages of careers, without constraints on content, duration, or format. This archive presents the programs as printed for each event. Most of the works shown are receiving their world or local premieres. The series has received funding at various points from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
