See a complete list of L.A. Freewaves venues
The sprawling 7th biennial festival of media-based art L.A. Freewaves will be popping up--and quickly retreating, in proper guerilla fashion--all over Southern California throughout the month of November. The more than 100 artists have been brought together as though they are a military unit mobilized to attack the banality that reduces our neighborhoods to sites of somnambulism, to quote Festival Director JoAnn Hanley.
