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.

Interested in supporting theARTlist? Great! Contact adam@bigsunday.org.

PAPERWORKS

September 27, 2015 - January 3, 2016   ONGOING EVENT

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

Website | Email | 323.937.4230

The Craft & Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) presents Paperworks, an exhibition that examines the range of work by fifteen contemporary artists with strong ties to Los Angeles who use paper as their primary medium. Their art comprises two-dimensional cut-outs and collages; free-standing sculptures; and large-scale installations that engage the architecture of the museum’s gallery space. Many of the works are created newly for this presentation. Paperworks, organized for the Craft & Folk Art Museum by independent curator Howard N. Fox, is on view from September 27, 2015 through January 3, 2016. An illustrated catalogue including texts on each artist will accompany the exhibition. 

Big Sunday has sent groups to help out CAFAM on Big Sunday for the past few years, doing a bunch of improvement projects inside and out!

AKTION! Art and Revolution in Germany, 1918-19

July 25, 2015 - January 10, 2016  

LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

Bringing together posters, prints, rare books, and periodicals, AKTION! Art and Revolution in Germany, 1918–19 illuminates the central role played by the graphic arts in the civil war that erupted in Germany at the end of World War I. An oft-forgotten episode in Germany’s tumultuous history, the civil war was a violent power struggle to determine the shape of the new republic, punctuated by two failed workers’ uprisings and the state-ordered assassination of communist leaders Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht.

 

Battles fought on the street also raged in the world of images, where art functioned not just as an illustration of political positions, but also as an active agent for social change, especially in the deft hands of artists such as Max Pechstein and Käthe Kollwitz. Highlighting a number of artists who were still working in a dramatic Expressionist style at the precise moment that the avant-garde turned to new modes of realism, this presentation from the permanent collection offers a prequel to the equally turbulent chapter of interwar history explored in New Objectivity: Modern German Art in the Weimar Republic, 1919–1933.

The Magic Medium

July 11, 2015 - February 7, 2016   ONGOING EVENT

LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

In 1839 Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre announced the first permanent photographic process. Exposed in the dark, developed by the vapor of mercury, and stilled on a sheet of silver-coated copper, the daguerreotype could seemingly turn fleeting experiences into tangible objects.

 

Using magic as its entry point, this installation investigates the ways in which photographers have manipulated the medium purported as reality’s mirror. Like magicians, they incite wonder in their audience—by isolating chance encounters, by evoking a sense of the extraordinary in ordinary subjects, or by constructing convincing illusions.

 

Spanning 150 years, this installation includes daguerreotypes from LACMA’s permanent collection and works by Eugène Atget, Matthew Brandt, Jo Ann Callis, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Harold Edgerton, William Eggleston, Matt Lipps, and Nic Nicosia, among others. In its apparent veracity, photography magically conjures the memories, dreams, and experiences of being in the world.

 

This exhibition is included in General Admission.

Japanese Paintings and Prints: Celebrating LACMA’s 50th Anniversary

July 16 - September 20, 2015  

LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

The first works of Japanese art to enter the collection of the Los Angeles Museum of History, Science, and Art—which eventually became LACMA in April 1965—were a large group of woodblock prints acquired in 1916, three years after the museum opened. Today, the museum’s permanent collection of Japanese art reflects the interests of a group of individuals in Southern California who came to appreciate Japanese art and culture over the course of the 20th century, particularly in the post-WWII decades.

 

As part of LACMA’s commitment to Japanese art, the museum made significant artwork purchases in addition to acquiring large gifts of inrō, traditional and contemporary prints, ceramics, and netsuke. Moreover, in the 1980s the museum constructed a building exclusively for the display of Japanese art, and in the early 90s a separate department for Japanese art was established.

 

Japanese Paintings and Prints: Celebrating LACMA’s 50th Anniversary commemorates the museum’s 50th year as well as the individuals and groups who have shaped the museum’s collections of Japanese paintings and prints. Included are gifts from private collectors, works purchased through the generosity of individual donors, and objects acquired through the support of various museum groups.

Critic’s Choice! A “remarkable portrait … richly entertaining and ultimately touching.” – Los Angeles Times

Hershey Felder brings to life the remarkable story of Irving Berlin, “America’s Composer.” From the depths of anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia, to New York’s Lower East Side, and ultimately all of America and the world, Berlin’s story epitomizes the American dream. Featuring the composer’s most popular and enduring songs from “God Bless America,” to “White Christmas” and beyond, Hershey Felder’s masterful creation of character and musical performance makes this evening with Irving Berlin an unforgettable journey.
