The LA County Museum of Art is hosting an all-day giant food-and-weirdness festival, TOMORROW, for one day only!

But a few of the many featured attractions:

JEANNE DUNNING
Tomato Fight
10,000 ripe tomatoes. 10 eager performers. Come and watch the splatter.

MACHINE PROJECT (& FRIENDS)
Electric Melon Drum Circle
Participants make amplified melons using contact microphones, and then perform together in a facilitated melon percussion group. Afterwards, they eat the instruments.

STEPHEN VAN DYCK
Chewing Carolers
A chorus of four people dressed in food service outfits serenading dining guests with rehearsed chewing, smacking and guttural sounds.

SUNG-YUN PARK (WITH SOOK SHIM)
Know the Taste of Korean Pan-Fried Octopus?
Some flavors cannot be translated. A dance performance.

KAREN ATKINSON, JOHN BURTLE, ARI KLETZKY, OWEN DRIGGS
Islands of LA Presents Roots of Compromise, 2010
The artists attempted to plant a garden of radishes on the traffic island closest to LACMA, negotiating with all the required city and civic bureaucracies. Their title evokes the relationship between “radicality,” a word with the same root as “radish,” and compromise.

JONATHAN GOLD
Spamburgers and Other Delights
LA Weekly food critic reads “Spam, the American Meat,” written especially for this event.

KAREN BLACK
On Fruit
Miss Black reads poetry and sings about the wonders of fruit. [Rachel's note: When I read a few attractions aloud to a local friend, she mused, "I saw Karen Black perform once. She did an obscene act with a sweet potato." Me: "Maybe she'll do another one with a pluot!"]

EMILY KATRENCIK
A Freedom Granted Is Not a Freedom Until It Is Expressed
A portion of the interior museum wall removed, the edible portions ground up as an ingredient in a sugar-based Your chance to actually eat LACMA!
Ahmanson 2 Lobby:
All day, while supplies last

7. MICOL HEBRON
Bubble Gum Pop
A participatory chorus of synchronized bubble gum pops. Gum will be provided and then taken away.

ANNA HOMLER
(WITH JORGE MARTIN)
The Mystery of the Knife, Fork and Spoon.
The secret lives of eating utensils are explored through spoken-word, songs in alien languages and sonic manipulation.

I am on call, but hopefully won't get called and can attend for at least some of it. This sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
