The Observatory Tour with Peter Tomka
April 20, 2019, 6:00 pm
In May 2018, plied with drinks and snacks, we boarded a tour bus and sped off to the University of California Riverside graduate studios where photographer and performer Peter Tomka had constructed a homemade coliseum. We mounted the structure and a single photo was taken. PAM is again the launch pad for another such journey, this one to an “observatory” constructed out of the ruins of the coliseum.
Note that this performance begins at PAM at 6pm and departs to Riverside by bus at 6:30pm.
Peter Tomka (b. 1989, Des Moines, IA. Lives and works in Los Angeles) is currently a 2020 MFA candidate from the University of California Riverside and holds a BA from the University of Iowa. Recent exhibitions include ‘Transparent Papers, Temporary Wall’ and ‘Ghey Scarecrow Doesn’t Know What to Wear’, two installations where photo documentation of performances are the central exploration.
