6.25.13 – PASSABLE ATLAS – EXHIBITION & LECTURE

 

Passable_Flyer

 

For the last four years, local LA artists Sean Deyoe and Nathan Snider have led The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time, a weekly Wednesday night bike ride exploring far-flung areas of the city. Convinced that bicycle infrastructure encompasses much more than bike lanes and river paths, they climb hills, wander off-road, and venture underground to bring out the hidden and unexpected connections between otherwise disconnected places. The ride is known for its unique routes and ambitious conceptual themes, aiming to give participants a balance between seeing new things and seeing old things anew.

Passable Atlas is a showcase of maps, photos, and video from The Passage ride, with nods to the various literary, architectural, and intellectual sources that have served as inspirations. For the full experience, those with bicycles may also take part in a special Saturday night ride scheduled in conjunction with the closing of the show on July 6th. Part document, part experience, part guidebook for exploration, Passable Atlas presents an argument for a more open city.

6.1.13 – THE CAR IN 2035

car_2035

Civic Projects Director Kati Rubinyi will be moderating a panel discussion about the new book: The Car in 2035: Mobility Planning for the Near Future – An artful and refreshingly multifaceted view of the future of mobility, focusing on the car, the street, and public policy in Southern California. In this collection of essays and images, the car is viewed as both a challenge and benefit to our neighborhoods, cities, and suburbs.

Despite rising fuel prices, the automobile will be Southern California’s primary form of transportation in 2035 because the region’s population will be continue to be dispersed widely, and the car offers the best access to the area’s tremendous diversity of economic, social, recreational, and cultural opportunities. But our infrastructure will need to accommodate a heterogeneous mix of modes of transportation… including more cars on the road than today.
