Trespass Parade Downtown Los Angeles

One of the highlights of the infinite number of events that took place on the opening weekend of The Getty’s Pacific Standard Time initiative was the Trespass Parade. The Trespass Art Parade is a collaborative project between Arto Lindsay, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and West of Rome Public Art (WoR). Trespass started at the art fair Art Platform and ended at the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles (MOCA).

On its way through the historic Broadway Theater District in Downtown Los Angeles artists and residents rallyed together to engage in art, music, dancing, and performance. Among the participating artists are Jon Baldessari, Chris Burden, Mike Kelley, Barbara Kruger, William Leavitt, Jorge Pardo, Kenny Scharf, Pae White, and many other renowned artists. Among the Parade performers are Vaginal Davis, Kenny Scharf, the Newspaper Reading Club, Pedestal & the All-Girl Band, and Yarn Bombing Los Angeles.
