 FLAX’s The Dialectic of the Stars, a visual arts and performance festival, drawing a constellation of 5 iconic venues, like points of a star, over 2 weeks (Feb 11-25) featuring everything from a motorcycle concert at LACE to a series of art installations as well as dinner & games by Robert Karima at FORD Theatres on February 18. Each arts institution will blend their own programming with FLAX curator-in-residence Fabien Danesi’s unique vision to ignite dialogue about L.A. as an important cultural hub. FLAX promotes mutual understanding between SoCal and France through the arts and the festival is free and open to all, promising to be a multi-sensory art experience.
