The Art Dock: The drive-by gallery in downtown LA in the 1980s revisited, and reassessed today
   
What was the Art Dock, who were the artists, and what are these artists doing today.

This event is a half hour slide presentation of the five years of The Art Dock, telling the story of emergence of the Art Scene in Downtown LA in 1980.

Join your fellow Yale Alumni interested in art in a wild ride through the art scene in downtown LA in the 1980's when loft living was illegal, and find out what has happened to 4 of the 33 Art Dock artist. A slide show will present the history of the gallery, and a panel where artists: Neal Taylor,an art stamp and mail art artist; Alexis Moore, a conceptual artist; Gary Lloyd, a surveillance sculptor;and Ulysses Jenkins, a video artist, whose Art Dock tape is currently showing at MOMA PSI, will discuss their work today. 

The Art Dock began when it was illegal to live in loft buildings. It flourish during the 1984 Olympics, and it faded after loft living was legalized and Downtown LA developed as a place desirable to live.
