Are you an artist? Do you enjoy the arts? Do you support the arts? If so, that’s great, because we do, too!

For years, Big Sunday volunteers have supported the arts in all kinds of ways. Now, with the art list, artists and arts organizations can post and announce their events – concerts, exhibits, screenings, readings, performances – to everyone in the Big Sunday community. The only requirement is that somehow, some way, at some time, you’ve helped somebody else through a Big Sunday project.

If you have something you’d like to post, submit it HERE.

Part of the Art and Music Series

 

In celebration of the exhibition Diana Thater: The Sympathetic Imagination, guitarist and composer Kaki King performs her unique “Neck is a Bridge to the Body” solo concert. Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, “The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body” is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique and insatiable imagination. King’s groundbreaking new multimedia performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other.

Live Read: Guest Directed by Laurence Fishburne

February 18, 2016, 7:30 PM - 12:00 AM  

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

The latest installment of the Film Independent at LACMA series Live Read, now celebrating its fifth anniversary, continues with guest directors taking over the reins most often assumed by series creator Jason Reitman. For February, we eagerly welcome the return of a participant as this month’s guest director. Stepping in for Reitman is Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Laurence Fishburne, who was seen in the Live Read versions of Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, which flipped things with a primarily African-American cast, and Goodfellas. Fishburne is an apt choice to assume the helm as director of this series, which become internationally known for taking classic and beloved film scripts and offering them with an entirely new group of actors before live audiences in the Bing Theater. In addition to directing a feature film himself (Once in the Life, an adaptation of his play,Riff Raff), Fishburne has worked with the most celebrated directors of our time, including Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola (four times) and Steven Soderbergh. The title of the February 2016 Live Read and its cast will be announced by Fishburne shortly.

Laurence J. Fishburne III has achieved an impressive body of work as an actor, producer, and director. Of the 44 awards he has been nominated for, Laurence has won 21 times. He was most recently nominated for a 2016 NAACP Image award for his role in ABC’s Black-ish. His many credits include John Singleton’s Boyz n the Hood, Steven Spielberg’s The Color PurpleThe Matrix movies, and The Tuskegee Airmen. Laurence starred on the hit series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as well as on the NBC thriller series Hannibal. Mr. Fishburne can next be seen in Warner Bros.’ Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, due to hit theaters in March 2016, and Sony’s Passengers, alongside Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, set for release in December 2016.

Help Support “Chicks Who Make Flicks”

February 4, 2016 - 4, 2017   ONGOING EVENT

Virtual, , Los Angeles, California

Website | Email |

Women writers and directors in the entertainment industry constantly encounter roadblocks when attempting to advance their careers – even when they are just as talented and capable as their male counterparts. Women actors have a similar problem simply because the number of female roles is significantly less than for men.  Friend of Big Sunday Amy Lloyd and her partner Christina Gray have combined efforts to combat this issue with a special IndieGogo campaign for their production company “Chicks Who Make Flicks.”  This organization is working to do its part to increase visibility and provide more opportunities for women.  The production company creates films made by women, films that tell great woman’s stories, films that capture the voices of women from all over the world and at every stage of their life. Their goal is to create an environment that supports, encourages, and celebrates talented female filmmakers.

Amy Lloyd is a long-time Big Sunday volunteer who participates in our weekly TM@10 events and many Monthly on Melrose events

“Maybe marriage was a better idea when life expectancy was lower.” – Jack from Big Sky

 

Five-star amenities and family fallout are on the itinerary as Jack races to land a life-changing deal during an Aspen getaway. But wide open spaces offer no place to hide as Jack’s family fails to keep the truth and elements at bay. Pulitzer Prize finalist playwright Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros and Tony Award winning director John Rando offer a funny and poignant cautionary tale about the perils of pretense and fragility of family.

Critic’s Pick! “Suffused with warmth and humor. Ruhl frothily whips together a romantic comedy and backstage farce.” – The New York Times

 

When long-lost loves are cast as long-lost lovers, two squabbling actors are slow to learn their lines but quick to ignite an old flame. MacArthur “Genius” Sarah Ruhl leads us on-stage, back-stage and out the stage door as reality collides with fiction in this raucous and revealing play within a play.

“A compelling, comic drama. An incisive look at the double edged quest for artistic validation in the digital era.” – Newsweek

 

When frustrated novelist Olivia meets fast-talking blogger Ethan – known more for his sexual prowess than his prose – she worries she will become just another chapter in his little black book. Their funny and flirty union blurs the lines between rewrites, romance and royalties – proving you can’t judge a book by its author.

“It has been a long time since a new work has challenged the very core of existence.”

- The Philadelphia Inquirer

“How do we distinguish between ‘difference’ and ‘danger?’”

- Playwright Bess Wohl

 

When a young American tourist has a wild night out with an elegant Spaniard, what begins as a drunken fling becomes a searing and seductive look at two lost souls seeking solace in each other. Bess Wohl’s biting humor uncovers the individual tragedies and triumphs that build us up as well as tear us down.
