Do you know what outer space sounds like? Signal Tide is a sound and extraterrestrial radio installation artwork, which combines real-time signals from an abandoned satellite, currently orbiting the earth, with specially commissioned music and sound. Listen to a special sound capture of the LES-1 satellite by the Pavilion for Japanese Art. Pick your Signal Tide viewing time or read more about the project on Unframed.

On Saturday, join art historian Ariane Perrin for an exploration of the formation and development of pottery art and technology during the Three Kingdoms period (57 BCE–CE 668), a key period in the history of Korean art which saw the emergence of the first centralized states in the Korean peninsula.

Also on Saturday, watch a special free screening of Chocolate and Still Alice. Both films touch on the struggles and impact of Alzheimer’s disease.

Sunday at 3 pm, enjoy a special Latin Sounds concert in conjunction with special exhibition Found in Translation. Legendary percussionist Pete Escovedo will take over the Hancock Park amphitheater for an afternoon of jazz, salsa, and Latin jazz music.

Don’t miss Found in Translation after the concert! Explore the groundbreaking exhibition and accompanying book about design dialogues between California and Mexico. Its four main themes—Spanish Colonial Inspiration, Pre-Columbian Revivals, Folk Art and Craft Traditions, and Modernism—explore how modern and anti-modern design movements defined both locales throughout the 20th century.
