Frank Gehry

September 13, 2015 - March 20, 2016  

LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

Frank Gehry has revolutionized architecture’s aesthetics, social and cultural role, and relationship to the city. His pioneering work in digital technologies set in motion the practices adopted by the construction industry today. The Canadian-born, Los Angeles–based architect’s work interrogates a building’s means of expression, a process that has brought with it new methods of design and technology as well as an innovative approach to materials. Gehry’s innovation and ability to push the boundaries of architecture garnered him the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1989.

 

Frank Gehry presents a comprehensive examination of his extraordinary body of work from the early 1960s—he established his firm in Los Angeles in 1962—to the present, featuring over 200 drawings, many of which have never been seen publicly, and 65 models that illuminate the evolution of Gehry’s thinking. Tracing the arc of his career, the exhibition focuses on two main themes: urbanism and the development of new systems of digital design and fabrication, including his use of CATIA, a software tool used in the aeronautics and automobile industries, which allows the digital manipulation of 3-D representations. This retrospective offers an opportunity to reflect on the development of Gehry’s work and to understand the processes of one of the great architectural minds.

Four Allegories by Veronese: A Rediscovery and a Reunion

August 14 - September 7, 2015  

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

The four paintings in this installation constitute a major achievement for artist Paolo Veronese. Three feature allegories of navigation—a subject particularly relevant to Venice, a city of merchants and traders who depended on ancient but precise technology to traverse the Mediterranean. The fourth painting features an allegory of sculpture, which may seem unexpected, but in fact reflects the rich and complex culture of Veronese’s time, when art and science, literature, mathematics, architecture, and painting all went hand in hand.

In 2014, the two LACMA paintings traveled to London to be included in an exhibition at the National Gallery. An exciting discovery was made at the same time: the canvases had a matching set, belonging to the Region of Piedmont in Italy. In need of conservation, the matching set could not be included in the London exhibition, but they were eventually shown alongside the LACMA paintings, first in Vicenza, and then in Turin. This exhibition presents a unique opportunity to see the four paintings reunited in Los Angeles.

This exhibition is organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and made possible by The Ahmanson Foundation. The organizers are grateful for the exceptional loans from La Venaria Reale Consorzio di Valorizzazione Culturale, Turin.

Noah Purifoy: Junk Dada

August 14 - September 27, 2015  

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

Noah Purifoy (1917-2004) lived and worked most of his life in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, California. A founding director of the Watts Towers Art Center, his earliest body of sculpture, constructed out of charred debris from the 1965 Watts Rebellion, was the basis for 66 Signs of Neon, a landmark group exhibition about the riots that traveled to nine venues between 1966 and 1969. In line with the postwar period’s general fascination with the street and its objects, Purifoy’s 66 Signs of Neon constituted a Duchampian approach to the fire-molded alleys of Watts, a strategy that profoundly impacted artists such as David Hammons, John Outterbridge and Senga Nengudi.

In the late 1980’s, after eleven years of public policy work for the California Arts Council, where Purifoy initiated programs such as Artists in Social Institutions, bringing art into the state prison system, Purifoy moved his practice to the Mojave desert. He lived there for the last fifteen years of his life, creating ten acres of large-scale sculpture constructed entirely from junked materials. 

The exhibition explores a pivotal yet under-recognized figure in the development of postwar American Art whose effect is only beginning to be fully understood.

BINH PHO: SHADOW OF THE TURNING

September 27, 2015 - January 3, 2016  

The Craft & Folk Art Museum, 5814 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323-937-4230

The Craft & Folk Art Museum is the only West Coast venue to host touring solo exhibition of acclaimed Vietnamese-American wood sculptor Binh Pho.

Combining woodturning, painting, and glasswork, Pho’s wood vessels act as storytelling devices to illustrate the autobiographical and fictional books he has collaborated on with exhibition curator Kevin Wallace. A previous body of work represented his experiences in Communist Vietnam, including the Fall of Saigon and detention in prison camp. With Shadow of the Turning, Pho’s sculptures expand beyond autobiography to convey the fantasy story contained in the novel of the same name he co-wrote with Wallace. The exhibition will be on view from September 26, 2015 through January 3, 2016.

Film: Fifi Howls from Happiness

October 6, 2015, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM  

LACMA, Bing Theater, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

Directed by Mitra Farahani, Fifi Howls from Happiness is a documentary about the elusive, so-called “Persian Picasso,” Bahman Mohassess, whose work dominated pre-revolutionary Iran. When Farahani finds the renowned artist, who went into voluntary exile in Rome, she is unaware that she will be filming the last months of his life. The man, taken for dead by most people, demonstrates a Pasolini-like mix of vivacity and despair, as embodied by his painting Fifi Howls from Happiness, one of the few works he did not destroy. Through a series of interviews with Farahani and meetings with two artists who commission a painting from him, the film explores Mohassess’ iconoclastic art as well as his conflicted relationship with his homeland. Mohassess treats the film-in-the-making as a self-portrait that is under his own control and closes with what the artist would triumphantly call his “final performance.” Director Mitra Farahani participates in a Q&A following the screening.

LACMA is proud to host the premiere of the Academy Film Archive and The Film Foundation restoration of experimental filmmaker Chick Strand’s crowning 1979 work. The film starts as a series of interviews with five women artists and thinkers and their perspectives on trying to fit their ambitions and talents into a world that doesn’t quite have a place for them. It’s almost an origin story, with a group of female protagonists who will change the world; and Strand’s allusive, dreamy filmmaking quickly departs from the conventional and takes us inside the heads of the camera subjects (and the filmmaker).

Craft Affair

October 17, 2015, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM  

Craft and Folk Art Museum, 5814 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 937 4230 x31

The Craft & Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) announces Craft Affair 2015, the museum’s annual fundraising gala co-chaired by Richard Erickson of W.E. O’Neil, Hank Hilty of the A.F. Gilmore Company, and artist Don Bachardy. This year’s gala celebrates CAFAM’s 50th anniversary with a cocktail reception and silent auction on October 17 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at 5814 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90036. The museum will be honoring the historic A.F. Gilmore Company and Guggenheim Fellow in Fine Arts Phyllis Green. 

 

 

 

The A.F. Gilmore Company is a family-owned business whose roots in Los Angeles date back to 1880. The company, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, owns and operates a variety of retail and real estate properties throughout the Fairfax District, most notably the Original Farmers Market, a Los Angeles landmark since 1934. 

 

 

 

Phyllis Green, a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow in Fine Arts 2014, has exhibited her sculpture and multi-media works both nationwide and internationally, including CAFAM; Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); the Museum of Contemporary Art Shanghai; Otis College of Art and Design; Tucson Museum of Art; and the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco. She is currently an adjunct faculty member at the Roski School of Art and Design at the University of Southern California (USC) and an officer of the Christopher Isherwood Foundation. 

 

 

 

The Craft & Folk Art Museum holds a fifty-year legacy as the only institution in Los Angeles exclusively dedicated to exploring the leading edge of contemporary craft, design, and folk art. Founded on Miracle Mile by Edith Wyle in 1965 as CAFAM’s predecessor The Egg & The Eye, the space served as an important cultural center for Southern California’s flourishing Studio Craft movement. Through its fifty-year exhibition history, CAFAM has supported the careers of notable artists such as Beatrice Wood, Sam Maloof, Isamu Noguchi, and J.B. Blunk. The museum continues to exhibit both established and emerging craftspeople, designers, and artists who often go unrepresented in larger institutions. 

 

 

 

Tickets to attend Craft Affair are $200 and sponsorship opportunities begin at $250. Complete details about the event, as well as silent auction item previews, can be found at http://www.craftaffair.cafam.org.

Joe Domanick & Richard Drooyan Discuss Blue and the LAPD

September 3, 2015, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM  

Chevalier's Books, 126 N. Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323-465-1334

Chevalier’s is excited to welcome author Joe Domanick in conversation with Richard Drooyan, former President of the Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners. They will be discussing Domanick’s new book Blue: The LAPD and the Battle to Redeem American Policing, on Thursday, September 3rd, at 7:00pm. There will be a Q&A following their talk.

 

American policing is in crisis. Issues surrounding controversial police actions continue to play out on a national scale and the topic is especially salient with the one-year anniversaries of the deaths of Eric Garner in New York City and Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. With Blue, award-winning investigative journalist Joe Domanick explores what police departments today can learn from methods of police reform in the past.

 

As a longtime critic of the LAPD and an investigative reporter covering the criminal justice system, Domanick has seen over two decades of changes in law enforcement. Vividly drawn and character-driven, Blue is simultaneously a drama of cops, crime and politics, and a primer on American police policy and reform.
