Anne Bray is a leading curator, media artist and educator, and has played a prominent role supporting alternative media in Los Angeles for two decades.  She is also the founder of the 21-year-old media arts festival LA Freewaves, an international, decentralized hub for experimental media art. Bray has exhibited her own artwork at gas stations, malls and movie theaters, as well as on TV, in department stores, on billboards and inside art venues, combining personal and social positions via video, audio and 3-d screens.

Bray will talk about the rise of urban screens in general, and her recently funded project “MetroVoice: About/In/By Los Angeles,” in which youth will collaboratively write and produce geo-coded videos, TV screen banners and messages that will be transmitted to TV screens on the LA Metro buses that travel throughout the city, transforming the buses into mobile learning labs.

.The talk begins at 7:00 and is free and open to students, faculty, and the general public.
