Please join us August 21 from 6 to&nbsp;8 pm; the screening will begin promptly at 7 pm and run time is one hour.</p> <p align="justify">In Christopher Richmond&rsquo;s newest film,&nbsp;<em>The Milky Way</em>, an unnamed humanoid figure encounters an array of characters living on the margins of society who share their thoughts, impassioned soliloquies, and beliefs about the world. It has a round, placid face with deep-set eyes that appear to indicate intelligence. It is made of concrete that has solidified and hardened over time, but it is also very clearly a special effect. It is an analog effect that reflects back on both the apparatus of the camera and on celluloid film&rsquo;s concrete and illusive qualities. It is an analog inside the analog. A silent figure that represents a series of figures that have appeared throughout cinematic history but generally stand for the absence of language. It is a symbol of silence. There is a good deal of talking around it but it remains quiet and all seeing. Traveling by car through a myriad of landscapes, from the natural habitats of the forest and desert, to the inner city of Los Angeles,&nbsp;<em>The Milky Way</em>&rsquo;s off-kilter characters are brought together under circumstances that are in and of themselves a bit unusual. Something is amiss in this world. Travel seems to happen, but without a destination; it is like some sort of primordial wandering in the Western canon.</p> <p align="justify">Christopher Richmond received his MFA from the Roski School of Art and Design in 2014. His film and photographic work, which explore narrative form and the fissure between story and discourse have been widely exhibited in galleries around the world, most recently at Mallorca Landings in Mallorca, Spain; Charlie James Gallery and Favorite Goods in Los Angeles; and Fotogalerie Wien in Vienna, Austria. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles.</p> Sat, 16 Aug 2014 14:25:59 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Christina Agapakis, Rita Blaik, Megan May Daalder, Amisha Gadani - Monte Vista - August 22nd 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Monte Vista Projects is proud to present&nbsp;<strong><em>OPENING</em></strong>.<strong><em>&nbsp;&nbsp;</em></strong>Opening.

Featuring work that is born out of darkness tender only to barflies, the project is inspired by and fully consumed with the world of alcoholic hedonism through the eyes and mouth of Neckface himself.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Part artistic practice and part anthropological query, you could say that Neckface &lsquo;went native&rsquo; in order to create this series. &nbsp;Working days and nights, the artist adhered to a strict creative process shrouded in the lighthearted but gloomy atmosphere akin to bars and pubs. &nbsp;Each piece is imagined and drafted in an impaired state, in the field, sometimes with little to no recollection of his sullied genius until the scrawled upon napkin is found the morning after. &nbsp;From there, the piece is refined into an exquisite form that falls somewhere between the work of Robert Crumb and a PlayBoy cartoon with the sensibility of an adult (alcoholic) version of Bart Simpson.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Vulgar in both theme and tone, this work does in fact ask ontological questions regarding bar culture. &nbsp;The premise of such an inquisition may seem mundane at first glance, but the comically grim one-liners of each drawing are entirely at home in the presentation. &nbsp;What is of paramount importance here, is that we remind ourselves how a debase arena of public life has produced a wealth of material for Neckface to draw upon; he is like a beacon in the crude barroom world. &nbsp;With little regard for ideals rooted in anything remotely P.C. this work asks you to suspend any serious sentiments and see the artistic validity and humor that lies somewhere near the bottom of a bottle.</p> Tue, 05 Aug 2014 06:40:49 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Group Show - BLEICHER/GOLIGHTLY/GORMAN - August 23rd 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p style="line-height: 1.15; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt; text-align: justify;" dir="ltr">&nbsp;</p> <p style="line-height: 1.15; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt; text-align: justify;" dir="ltr">&nbsp;</p> <p style="line-height: 1.15; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt; text-align: justify;" dir="ltr">&nbsp;</p> <p id="docs-internal-guid-572848a7-bc96-9895-b435-b0e312e59582" style="line-height: 1.15; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt; text-align: justify;" dir="ltr">&nbsp;bG Gallery is pleased to present &ldquo;Baby Animals&rdquo;.

Back in the dark ages, live music performances and early pre-made music videos reigned in underground nightclubs before cable television and MTV usurped their omnipresence. Videos were usually reel-to-reel, &frac34; inch U-matic tapes; discarded outtakes from commercial and industrial production houses, edited live to records played on turntables. When the bands played, they were recorded and broadcast on ceiling monitors in the club.</div> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="justify">Decades have passed, and now the computer is the "cool" hang, a place for escape and where the fantasy of instant stardom (or finding one) becomes a reality. In the comfort of your own home, you can use a program called Turn Tube List to become your own V-jay, cross-fade YouTube videos, and create video playlists from videos found on YouTube. Its all You, all the time.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="justify">For this event, Klonarides and Recchion will&nbsp;select a wide array of experimental art and noise videos from No Wave, New York art bands to West Coast sound and punk bands, such as Captain Beefheart &amp; His Magic Band, Frank Zappa, Julee Cruise, Terry Riley, and The Velvet Underground.

A selection of black and white photographs including never before seen vintage silver gelatin prints from the artist&rsquo;s archive will be on view July 26 through August 23, 2014. A reception for the artist will be held Saturday, July 26, from 5-8 pm.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">From the 1940s until he hung up his cameras in the 1960s New York native, Murray Garrett, was one of the most sought after event and celebrity photographers in the country. With his medium format cameras, like the Speed Graphic and Rollieflex, he deftly captured the lives of the entertainment industry&rsquo;s elite and other popular figures of American culture and high society. Garrett was consistently welcomed into the innermost circles of Hollywood during its golden age, and produced many iconic, revealing and memorable black and white photographs of an industry where image is everything. As Bob Hope writes:</p> <p class="p2">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p3">&ldquo;There are photographers, and then there is Murray Garrett. He has a magic eye or a secret device in his camera that captures something different, something special that is missed by other photographers&hellip;All of Hollywood recognized the genius of Garrett. He was always that one photographer who stood on the inside of the ropes at all the events.&rdquo;</p> <p class="p2">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">Originally from Brooklyn, Murray Garrett&rsquo;s career as a distinguished documentary photographer began while he was still in his teens when he landed a part time job at Graphic House in New York City as the assistant to the legendary theatrical photographer, Eileen Darby. While under Darby&rsquo;s tutelage, Garrett received his first major assignment in the early 1940s when he was sent to cover first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, and labor leader Phillip Murray while they attended a musical in Newark, New Jersey. Shortly thereafter, Garrett relocated to Los Angeles to oversee the establishment of the photo agency&rsquo;s West Coast office. Within a year of his move Garrett was promoted to the position of bureau chief at Graphic House and was completing assignments for almost every major publication in the country including TIME, LOOK and LIFE. For the next 25 years his career flourished into one of the most notable in the genre of celebrity portraiture and reportage. Not only did Garrett cover all of the major Hollywood premiers and galas during the height of film industry glamour, he was granted exclusive access to intimate private events and welcomed into the everyday lives of Hollywood&rsquo;s highly celebrated stars. Garrett held an esteemed position as Bob Hope&rsquo;s personal photographer for over two decades. He was the only photographer invited to accompany Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and their children as they flew by private helicopter to Disneyland, and to cover Frank Sinatra&rsquo;s surprise 21<sup>st</sup> birthday party for Natalie Wood. His frequent friendships with the who&rsquo;s who of Tinseltown allowed Garrett to capture rare and fleeting moments with unmatched elegance and ease. He produced a vast body of work that is at once tender, majestic, humorous, and insightful. It is a stunning testament to the sophistication and style of one of the most important periods in cinematic history and a fascinating American timecapsule, rendered beautifully in black and white.</p> <p class="p2">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">Murray Garrett has served on the board of directors of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. His work was the subject of a major retrospective at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1989. Two monographs of his photographs with accompanying commentary have been published: Hollywood Candid (2000) currently in its third printing, and Hollywood Moments (2002).&nbsp;</p> Wed, 20 Aug 2014 15:03:52 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Renae Barnard, Vera Bauluz, Tofer Chin, Abdul Mazid, Patch Wright - Shoshana Wayne Gallery - August 23rd 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Join us for an artist talk&nbsp;Saturday, August 23, 2014 at 11:30 AM&nbsp;<br /><br /><strong>Please RSVP to Alana Parpal :&nbsp;<a href="mailto:alana@shoshanawayne.com" target="_blank">alana@shoshanawayne.com</a></strong></p> Fri, 15 Aug 2014 08:21:24 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list - Torrance Art Museum - August 23rd 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM Sat, 02 Aug 2014 07:09:43 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Camille Blatrix, Benjamin Ferrachat, Robin Margerin, Justine Ponthieux, Ana Vega - Torrance Art Museum - August 23rd 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM Sat, 12 Jul 2014 17:15:47 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Group Show - Torrance Art Museum - August 23rd 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <div id="id_53dc8f12998a06e43950910" class="text_exposed_root text_exposed" style="text-align: justify;">TIME is Love is a video art project gathering several artists, and has traveled to major cities in the world: New York, London, Berlin, Paris, seoul...<br /> Preoccupied with love, the project represents love stripped from its traditional clich&eacute;s and timeless idealism. Each of the artists leads an interdisciplinary practice bringing a questioning and a criticism on a system of relation to others which appears to us as being dying.<br /> <br /> Taking these ambivalent feelings as a starting point, the artists develop their own language according to their sensibility and history. The selected videos deal with prevented communications, disturbed feelings, globalisation, memory and spirituality. As a result, each video inspires the viewer to question the normative understandings of relationships in the occidental world.<br /> <br /> Special Thanks to Max Presneill &amp; Annabelle Boko<br /> (c) Jos&eacute; Man Lius</div> Sat, 12 Jul 2014 17:16:22 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list - Torrance Art Museum - August 23rd 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p>Main Gallery: Another Thing Coming - New Sculpture in LA<br /><br />Opening Reception:<br />Saturday, August 23, 2014<br />6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.<br /><br />On View through Saturday, October 18, 2014<br /><br />A survey of contemporary sculpture created by Los Angeles based artists.
