Kay Sekimachi: Simple Complexity traces the pioneering fiber artist’s groundbreaking works from the 1960s to present day.

Curated in close collaboration with the artist, this career survey draws from the collection of Forrest L. Merrill, which spans the diversity and range of Sekimachi’s work over the last six decades.

“Words We Have Learned Since 9-11”

October 7 - November 13, 2016

Skid Row History Museum and Archive, 440 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | fg;lkdfglfdkfkl

A participatory photographic project by Los Angeles visual artist, Clayton Campbell. ‘Words’ originated in 2004 is a visual conversation between various communities about how people view themselves in a post “9-11” reality through learned or re-contextualized language. Clayton intends to engage a Skid Row and downtown LA audience in a dialogue that discusses the linguistic byproducts of world power in the post-9-11 environment. Exhibition visitors are invited to participate by first identifying words they have learned or have gained new meaning since 9-11, and then being photographed and instantaneously installed into the exhibition. The photographic series has grown in size to over 1,000 images and has been seen in numerous museums worldwide.

The majority of the works have been created specifically for this exhibition. Salem Rose, the artist who submitted the title, explains: “It’s an art walk (of sorts), walking also implies that we are moving forward. ‘Dream’ implies drive, determination, as well as recreation and restoration of aspirations.”

Gronk’s Theater of Paint

May 29 - September 4, 2016 ONGOING EVENT

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

Website | Email | 323.937.4230

Gronk’s Theater of Paint explores the legendary Los Angeles artist’s extensive work in set design through an interactive, site-specific theater set and documentation from his past productions. Gronk’s work in set design stretches over 40 years, from his time as a member of the conceptual artist collective ASCO to his recent opera productions with director Peter Sellars. Gronk’s theater installation merges his love of the improvised and low budget aesthetic of B-movies with the operatic. Visitors are invited to be active participants in his theater, moving through the space and interacting with props. Gronk’s Theater of Paint will also serve as a dynamic setting for performances and public programs throughout the course of the exhibition.

This exhibition is supported in part by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the Department of Cultural Affairs, Los Angeles.

OUTSIDE OF WHAT?

May 23 - June 30, 2016 ONGOING EVENT

DAC Gallery, 431 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 213.627.7374

Opens

SATURDAY, MAY 28

6-8PM

“Outside of What?” comprises works by “normal” or “average” ability artists with those of developmentally disabled artists in an effort to question the usual distinctions made about the “outsider artist” label. The exhibition will feature works by emerging and mid-career artists based in Los Angeles, some of whom participate in the ECF Art Centers program, a nonprofit organization that mentors artists living with developmental disabilities.

The central aims of the exhibition are to incite new ways of looking at and thinking about art, to encourage the viewer to trust their experience, and to discard prescribed narratives altogether. By exhibiting the works of this diverse group of artists within the cultural milieu of Los Angeles, the exhibition seeks to subvert the “outsider” designation and reimagine how we can look at art without inherited labels. 

Exhibiting Artists
Seth Bogart, Tiffiny Boyd, Heidi Dong, Juan Pierri, Sam Phillips, Lenny Salazar, Jesse Spears, Kyle Thomas, Luke Thomas

Weed, and Ansel Adams, and captured the area’s iconic natural landscapes using terrestrial laser scanning. Shaw and Trossel will also introduce the laser scanner, a tool they envision as the “camera of the future.”

Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, 1715–2015

April 10 - August 21, 2016 ONGOING EVENT

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

Website | Email | 323.857.6010

Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, 1715–2015 explores the history of men’s fashionable dress from the eighteenth century to the present and re-examines the all-too-frequent equation of “fashion” with “femininity.”

 

Beginning with the 18th century, the male aristocrat wore a three-piece suit conspicuous in make and style, and equally as lavish as the opulent dress of his female counterpart. The 19th-century “dandy” made famous a more refined brand of expensive elegance which became the hallmark of Savile Row. The mid-twentieth-century “mod” relished in the colorful and modern styles of Carnaby Street, and the 21st century man—in an ultra-chic “skinny suit” by day and a flowered tuxedo by night—redefines today’s concept of masculinity.

 

Drawing primarily from LACMA’s renowned collection, Reigning Men makes illuminating connections between history and high fashion. The exhibition traces cultural influences over the centuries, examines how elements of the uniform have profoundly shaped fashionable dress, and reveals how cinching and padding the body was, and is, not exclusive to women. The exhibition features 200 looks, and celebrates a rich history of restraint and resplendence in menswear.

 

This is a specially ticketed exhibition. Join now and see it free.

ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE: THE PERFECT MEDIUM

March 20 - July 31, 2016 ONGOING EVENT

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

Website | Email | 323 857-6010

Robert Mapplethorpe’s practice as an artist was characterized by inherent dualities. He sought what he called “perfection in form” in everything from acts of sexual fetishism to the elegant contours of flower petals. Robert Mapplethorpe: The Perfect Medium explores Mapplethorpe’s body of work through early drawings, collages, sculptures, and Polaroid photography; materials from his archive; portraits, still lifes, and figure studies; rare color photographs; and two seldom-seen moving image works. The exhibition also highlights the artist’s relationship to New York’s sexual and artistic undergrounds, as well as his experimentation with a variety of media.

 

Also on view, the exhibition Physical: Sex and the Body in the 1980s presents a focused installation of work by other artists drawn from LACMA’s permanent collection that helps place Mapplethorpe in conversation with the art of the 1980s.

 

The J. Paul Getty Museum is presenting a companion exhibition exploring Mapplethorpe’s disciplined studio practice and his fascination with classical form and the fine photographic print.

 

This is a specially ticketed exhibition. Join now to see it free.

 

This exhibition contains sexually explicit content that may not be suitable for all audiences.
