INSIDE THE RENDON
EPISODE 1 | Now available
Have you ever wondered what goes on in the mind of an artist before, during, and after a public event? Find out at INSIDE THE RENDON // ARTISTS SALON, a discussion with the artists, actors, musicians, and dancers behind the multidimensional productions at the historic Rendon Hotel.
STATE OF THE WORLD
Publicly displayed for viewing through February/March, 2021
“State of the World” is a temporary outdoor mural exhibition at 2001 E. 7th Street, organized in collaboration with Art At The Rendon and SO|DA Architecture, both based in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District. Historically, the building housed the Farmers and Merchants National Bank and will soon be restored, structurally retrofitted and turned into a restaurant.
RHYTHMS OF THE CITY
Friday, November 8 – Sunday, November 10, 2019
An immersive, site-specific experience that will fuse various styles of live music and dance into a simultaneous, collaborative performance that transforms the building itself into a musical instrument. Following the success of HIDDEN ROOMS and STORIES in 2018, Art At The Rendon’s latest production will highlight the musical and cultural diversity of Los Angeles, while emphasizing the synergy of the city as a whole.
Friday, November 9 – Sunday, November 11, 2018
An operatic work that transformed The Rendon Hotel through a layering of film projection and live performances activating both the exterior and interior of the vacant hotel. Following the successful inaugural event HIDDEN ROOMS, Art At The Rendon’s STORIES continued the creative narrative of the building and its colorful history. The original corner dive bar, Licha’s Bar and Grill was reimagined as a 1920’s speakeasy with libations by Angel City Brewery, Infuse Spirits and Pali Wine and music by The Vignes Rooftop Revival. All are based in the Arts District.
Friday, June 1 – Sunday, June 3, 2018
Curated by Cindy Schwarzstein of Cartwheel Art, this community celebration featured over 85 renowned artists and performers who transformed the historic Rendon Hotel, located in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District, into a fully immersive art experience.
OVER 45 SITE-SPECIFIC INSTALLATIONS. Visitors were able to explore the building, the rooms upstairs and the bar and lounge area on the ground floor, even the parking lot.
