Nicolas Garait-Leavenworth er kuratoren bak det litterære programmet i utstillingen «Los Angeles - A Fiction» på Astrup Fearnley Museet

I utstillingen «Los Angeles – A Fiction» presenteres et utvalg av litterære tekster som er skrevet enten i eller om Los Angeles i løpet av de siste femti årene, i form av en bok. Nicolas Garait-Leavenworth er kuratoren bak dette litterære programmet og torsdag 3. november kl. 18.00 holder han foredraget "We tell ourselves stories in order to live (Los Angeles: some books, some films)" på Astrup Fearnley Museet. Da har du også mulighet til å møte tekstkuratoren, og stille ham de spørsmålene du lurer på! Foredraget er gratis, holdes på engelsk og er åpent for alle. 

Litt om Nicolas Garait-Leavenworth og hans foredrag og reading-performance "We tell ourselves stories in order to live (Los Angeles: some books, some films)"; 

From the 1965 Watts riots (Walter Mosley) to the 1992 South Central protests (Nina Revoyr, Ryan Gattis), from O.J. Simpson (Dominick Dunne) to Sharon Tate (Vincent Bugliosi) and back again, these excerpts are purposefully not in chronological or alphabetical order; their lengths differ from one extract to another, some books are quoted twice and a number or writers appear numerous times. The chosen extracts are organised so that they tell a story that complements the artworks in the exhibition, not only to give a glimpse of the great diversity of subjects prompted by Los Angeles, but also of the sheer number of communities, characters and landscapes that make up the city. Based on the Los Angeles – A Fiction catalogue, Nicolas Garait-Leavenworth's performative reading will attempt to dive into the founding myths of the L.A. fiction industry.

Nicolas Garait-Leavenworth’s artistic approach is the result of years of research mostly devoted to history, fiction and space, a collection of information in which new creations and archives from multiple sources coexist. His work has been presented at La Salle de Bain (Lyon), the Biennale de Lyon at IAC (Villeurbanne), Public Fiction (Los Angeles), the CAPC Museum (Bordeaux) and Southard Reid (London).
