Changes presents an afternoon of 20 site-specific performances and interactive works from Los Angeles artists in and around Union Station. The projects, which take advantage of the many unique spaces at Union Station, will ask the public to consider the station as a metaphor for all kinds of changes both personally and societally.
Union Station is that rare place in LA that feels like a public space, and yet it’s often not a destination so much as a space for switching trains/buses, and it’s frequently experienced in solitude. Changes hopes to give transit riders and station visitors an opportunity to get personal, connect with others, and reflect on their own lives, on the city and its people, in the type of space that can sometimes feel disconnected, impersonal and stressful.
