LOLA 2010 September 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 – London Ontario

A friendly reminder that London Ontario’s own LOLA Festival (London Ontario Live Arts) is taking place this weekend.  Since its inception in 2006, LOLA has built a reputation on innovative curation, bold artistic statement and constant growth.  LOLA (London Ontario Live Arts) is a mostly free four day multi-disciplinary excursion into visual art and sound, their aim is to transform London's downtown core through subtle spectacles of the seen and heard. 
 From The LOLA website:
The curatorial theme of LOLA 2010, Conflict//Resolution — stems from an interest in working with the social history and heritage of Victoria Park. A former British Army barrack turned green space, the park is currently home to many war memorials, including decommissioned military equipment. For the past four years, Victoria Park has also served as the central location for the LOLA Festival. In response to this, the art in this year's festival ofthen simultaneously references war and peace, while when possible referencing the history and culture of the park and London.

The musical trajectory of this year’s lineup was, in a sense, borrowed from the expanded and ever evolving musical oeuvre of the late Arthur Russell.  Arthur’s limitless pallet and knowledge of musical languages was nothing short of extraordinary.  Disco, the avant-garde, folk, soul, experimental, ambient, contemporary chamber works, and rock were but a few of the genres Arthur explored.  In following Arthur and his world of echo through boundless musical landscapes, we're taught to appreciate new sounds, textures, subtle abstractions, and sonic colorings we'd yet to acknowledge or understand previously.

The stellar lineup this year is huge and includes Jamie Lidell, Land of Talk, My Brightest Diamond, the Chicago Underground Duo, Born Ruffians, Caribou and closes Sunday night with Text of Light featuring  Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) and many more.

The full schedule and artist lineup below.  Please check the LOLA website for maps and additional venue information.
