Michael Parker: May Day @ Roski MFA Gallery


Roski MFA Thesis Exhibition
Michael Parker May Day: Control the Power - Follow the Energy
April 28, 2009 - May 5, 2009

PR: "May Day: Control the Power - Follow the Energy" consists of a series of video and photography created this semester with the Lineman Class at Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC). The Lineman Class is a course teaching the skills and precision required of a power pole technician. The fifty person class meets 6:45am–2:30pm five days per week, with the first artwork presentation ("May Day") two-thirds of the way through the sixteen week term. A second show is planned at LATTC in late May at the end of the course.

this show was solid. good concept, competent execution, community aspect--i think it's among the more interesting things roski staged this year.

yeah, i think it was successful for what it was. a little rudimentary overall, but definitely, as jim says, "solid" enough.
