More than Meets the Eye: The Videos of Tran, T. Kim-Trang
Book Launch Event

Thursday, October 27 | 4:15 p.m. - 6 p.m. | Digital Tool Shed, Claremont Colleges Library

This born-digital Scalar book reflects on the extensive body of video-based work created by Tran T. Kim-Trang, internationally recognized media artist and Professor of Art at Scripps College. It collects essays from leading figures in the media arts community, who offer nuanced assessment of the work, and it promises to jumpstart a conversation about the relevance of video as a form of critical authoring, a practice undertaken at a moment when the tools were in their infancy, but shared now at a time when authoring in media has never been more accessible nor the ability to disseminate one's ideas through video more possible.

Join us for a reception to celebrate the launch of More than Meets the Eye. Presenters include:
Michelle Dizon, Artist and Educator
Lucas Hilderbrand, UC Irvine
Jesse Lerner, Pitzer College
David Lloyd, UC Riverside
Tran, T. Kim-Trang, Scripps College

Refreshments will be served. For more information: Ashley Sanders | (909) 607-0894 | Ashley_Sanders@cuc.claremont.edu

Join CCL librarians at the 11th Annual Archives Bazaar

The 11th Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar will be held this Saturday, October 15, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the USC Doheny Library. This event celebrates Los Angeles history as seen through the collections of archivists and enthusiasts throughout the region. A broad array of institutions and archives will have experts on hand to show off their collections and answer questions--from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and the Los Angeles Public Library to private collectors whose materials fill the gaps left in the region's history.

In addition to the wealth of information on display from exhibitors, day-long programming will feature workshops and demonstrations on the archiving and preservation of photographs and scrapbooks; a program on how to research historical information about Los Angeles; a presentation on the worst ever man-made disaster in Southern California; and, in this year celebrating the 500th anniversary of Thomas More's book Utopia, a discussion on how L.A. is often associated with the fictional land, despite such intractable problems as gridlock, drought, homelessness, and income inequality.

Claremont library patrons may be especially interested in the presentation on "Researching L.A. 101," co-facilitated by CCL's own Western Americana Manuscripts librarian, Lisa L. Crane. The presentation will give attendees a detailed overview of how and where to start, including basic research tips useful for anyone working with primary and secondary source material. Topics will include researching from home, visiting archives, the ins and outs of reading rooms, and more. "Researching L.A. 101" takes place from 9-10 a.m. as part of the Archives Bazaar programming.
