John Coplans’ essay, “Pasadena’s Collapse and the Simon Takeover: Diary of Disaster” written for Artforum in 1975, unravels the mirages and problems that the Pasadena Art Museum faced before being essentially purchased by ketchup mogul Norton Simon. Architects Lad + Kelsey's plan rode over the balance of architecture and beneficial exhibition space for their own design vision. The new building and location opened in late 1969 with a chaotic flurry of anticipation from the staff and artists, a re... [more]

What is fair in Los Angeles, but the amalgam of worlds and communities that thrive and crash histories under almost perfect weather? We interviewed Tim Fleming, director of Art Los Angeles Contemporary art fair, who talks about the fair’s fourth year.  What is your take on the move of other fairs installing programming west in the past two years, including Paris Photo inaugurating later this year in April? I really don’t have any comment on the other fairs, except that we are really excited ab... [more]

In the cavernous former movie theater that makes the main gallery of Human Resources, performance artist MPA has hung a lunar calendar, following the phases of the moon for the duration of the exhibition the work finds itself in. Curated by artist and Human Resources collective member Chiara Giovando, the premise of the thematic exhibition, “Gap, Mark, Sever, and Return”, is that of the “series”, the way interconnected works can mark time, to organize, to build.    The documented course of time...

The first time I met Eli Langer was in a book. In Chris Kraus’s Where Art Belongs—a collection of essays that begins with words on the now defunct underground space, Tiny Creatures. Full of kaleidoscopic stories, the essay touches on the “golden age” of the eastside’s art and music scene in Los Angeles—the flux of spaces in Chinatown and Echo Park. One of my favorite descriptions of the now infamous Part Time Punks club is told by Kraus in her essay: “… where people who’d grown up as misfits with obscure musi... [more]

"It's a show about winter in summer," replied the woman behind the gallery counter. Summer in Los Angeles, where time seems inescapable... This exhibition seduces the spirit of the summer group show, drawing out the cryptic parallel lines of the poetics of the physical (objects) and fantasy (desires). The longing and anticipation in Ian James Elements of Fractal Topography #8 (Chair throws), 2008, a distorted landscape of photograms, might be tinting towards desires/obsessions in its hyperbolic magen...

Architecturally, the Finley adapts to the facade of the building—situated while seemingly floating in space.
