She continually draws from history, literature, and personal experiences for inspiration and weaves these narratives into her work. Hutchins&rsquo;s sculptural works combine found objects with her own ceramics, oftentimes using one as a pedestal for the other. Though sculptural, her works evoke still-life paintings, in which ordinary items are elevated to contemplative objects. The Hammer will present&nbsp;<em>Carpaccio</em>&nbsp;(2013), created for the 55th Venice Biennale, <em>The Encyclopedic Palace</em>, alongside the painting <em>Two Ties</em> (2014).</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:31:29 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Hassan Khan, Kim Gordon, Alex Knost, Brendan Fowler, Simone Forti, Lonnie Holley, Adam Linder - Hammer Museum - September 26th - September 27th <div id="c10895" class="csc-default csc-typography"> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong style="font-size: 1em; line-height: 1.555;">SAT, SEPTEMBER 26: 12-10 PM</strong><br /><strong style="font-size: 1em; line-height: 1.555;">SUN, SEPTEMBER 27: 12-10 PM</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em style="font-size: 1em; line-height: 1.555;">ALL THE INSTRUMENTS AGREE: an exhibition or a concert </em>is&nbsp;a two-day program of back-to-back live performances by over 25 local, national, and international sound artists, music collectives, art bands, and visual artists whose practices extend to the production of sound.

The earliest form of photography, this revolutionary invention was announced to the public in 1839. In our present image-saturated age, it is difficult to imagine a time before the ability to record the world with the blink of an eye or the touch of a fingertip. This exhibition, drawn from the Getty Museum&rsquo;s permanent collection alongside loans from two private collections, presents unique reflections of people, places, and events during the first two decades of the medium.</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2015 11:05:31 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list - Getty Center Los Angeles - October 13th - January 3rd, 2016 <p style="text-align: justify;">The cultivation, preparation, and consumption of food formed a framework for daily labor and leisure in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Illuminated manuscripts offer images of the chores that produced sustenance, cooking techniques, popular dishes, grand feasts, and diners of different social classes. Food had powerful symbolic meaning in Christian devotional practice as well as in biblical stories and saintly miracles, where it nourished both the body and the soul.</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2015 11:04:47 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list - Getty Center Los Angeles - October 13th - March 13th, 2016 <p style="text-align: justify;">Elaborate artworks made of food were created for royal court and civic celebrations in early modern Europe. Like today's Rose Bowl Parade on New Year's Day or Mardi Gras just before Lent, festivals were times for exuberant parties. Public celebrations and street parades featured large-scale edible monuments made of breads, cheeses, and meats. At court festivals, banquet settings and dessert buffets featured magnificent table monuments with heraldic and emblematic themes made of sugar, flowers, and fruit. This exhibition, drawn from the Getty Research Institute's Festival Collection, features rare books and prints, including early cookbooks and serving manuals that illustrate the methods and materials for making edible monuments.</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2015 11:04:11 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Group Show - Fowler Museum at UCLA - October 18th - March 13th, 2016 <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">This dynamic exhibition&nbsp;considers the past, present, and future of disguise - a visual act that can be a mask, a costume, or simply a camouflage. <em>Disguise</em> features exciting new works by twelve contemporary artists from Africa and of African descent who explore the impulse of disguise with optical illusions, street actions, computer magic, and virtual reality. Together these works will engage visitors&rsquo; imaginations as they consider&nbsp;the art of masking as a transformative process &ndash; one that is informed by a multiplicity of influences, from historical African masquerade traditions to contemporary global culture and digital media.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The artists in <em>Disguise</em>&nbsp;use a variety of creative mediums, including drawings, photographs, videos, masks, sculptures, performances, and installations to hide identity and reveal issues of social, political or cultural import. The twelve featured artists are: Jakob Dwight, Brendan Fernandes, Nandipha Mntambo, Emeka Ogboh, Wura-Natasha Ogunji, Walter Oltmann, Sondra R. Perry, Zina Saro-Wiwa, Jacolby Satterwhite, Sam Vernon, William Villalongo, and Saya Woolfalk.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Disguise: Masks and Global African Art</em> is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and is curated by Pamela McClusky, Curator of African and Oceanic Art for the Seattle Art Museum, and Erika Dalya Massaquoi, Consultant Curator. Major funding for the Los Angeles presentation of <em>Disguise</em> is provided by the Barbara and Joseph Goldenberg Fund, the Shirley and Ralph Shapiro Director&rsquo;s Discretionary Fund, an anonymous donor, Dallas Price-Van Breda, and Manus, the support group of the Fowler Museum. Additional support comes from the Fowler Contemporary Council and the following members: Susan Burnett and Steve Dyer, Bronya and Andy Galef, Sarah and Bill Odenkirk, and Valerie and Brad Cohen.</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2015 10:53:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Binh Pho - Craft and Folk Art Museum - September 26th 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The Craft &amp; Folk Art Museum is the only West Coast venue </em><em>to host touring solo exhibition of acclaimed Vietnamese-</em><em>American wood sculptor Binh Pho</em></p> <p class="Default" style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;The Craft &amp; Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) presents <em>Binh Pho: Shadow of the Turning, </em>a solo exhibition of Vietnamese-American sculptor Binh Pho. Combining woodturning, painting, and glasswork, Pho&rsquo;s wood vessels act as storytelling devices to illustrate the autobiographical and fictional books he has collaborated on with exhibition curator Kevin Wallace. A previous body of work represented his experiences in Communist Vietnam, including the Fall of Saigon and detention in prison camp. With <em>Shadow of the Turning</em>, Pho&rsquo;s sculptures expand beyond autobiography to convey the fantasy story contained in the novel of the same name he co-wrote with Wallace. The exhibition will be on view from September 26, 2015 through January 3, 2016.</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">Pho has always been a storyteller, as well as an artist. Both Wallace and Pho conceived of the book and exhibition as a vehicle for expressing their strong belief in destiny&mdash;that things happen for a reason. The work serves to illustrate the narrative that emerged as Pho and Wallace collaborated to develop the characters and plot line, while navigating the meaning of the symbolic elements crucial to the story. Pho incorporates personal iconography on his sculptures that represent the book&rsquo;s narrative concepts: peacock feathers signify a dream, while dragonflies represent good luck, and butterflies symbolize the link between the physical and spirit world.</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">To traverse the world of dreams, spirits, and reality, Pho uses an intricate, mixed media approach to woodturning. He explores the interaction of negative and positive space by etching and piercing through thinly turned wooden surfaces before using an airbrush to create imagery and symbols in the style of Chinese landscape painting. Sometimes incorporating glass, gold leaf, and bronze in his objects, Pho&rsquo;s fascination with media and techniques, and his ability to master them, has allowed him to push his artistic vision.</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;We are extremely pleased to show Pho&rsquo;s latest work, as he presents an intriguing and personal perspective on life and work, evoking creative possibilities and a sense of hope as he astonishes us with the sheer beauty in his objects,&rdquo; says CAFAM Executive Director Suzanne Isken.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A diverse group of international artists collaborated with Pho to embody his idea of celebrating craft by including artists who work in traditional craft media: glass, ceramic, wood, fiber, and metal. Works on view will include Pho&rsquo;s collaboration with an international roster of artists, including multimedia artist Ron Gerton; woodworkers Graeme Priddle, Harvey Fein, Joey Richardson, Curt Theobald, Michael Mahoney, Don Derry, Giles Gilson and Hans Weissflog; fiber artists Kay Kahn and Patti Quin Hill; assemblage artist Ron Robertson; metalworker Meghan Rowland; ceramic artist Richard Flores; and Australian painter Annette Barlow. Pho often builds structures around the work of a collaborator; in one case, he sliced open Patti Quinn Hill&rsquo;s basket to paint the interior.</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;CAFAM is the final destination before the works are returned to individual collectors,&rdquo; notes Wallace. &ldquo;Just as the characters in the novel <em>Shadow of The Turning </em>find themselves on an adventurous road trip to Southern California, so too has the exhibition worked it&rsquo;s way across the country to Los Angeles.&rdquo;</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">An opening reception for <em>Binh Pho: Shadow of the Turning </em>will take place on Saturday, September 26 from 6:00 &ndash; 9:00 p.m. The reception is free for CAFAM members and open to the public for a $12 admission fee. CAFAM members will be able to preview the exhibition on Saturday, September 26 starting at 12:00 p.m.</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;"><em>Supported in part by the Antonia and Vladimer Kulaev Cultural Heritage Fund.</em></p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;"><strong>PUBLIC PROGRAMS </strong></p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">CAFAM will offer exhibition-related workshops and events in conjunction with the exhibition, including CraftLab family workshops on the second Sunday of each month from 1:30 &ndash; 3:30 p.m.</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Artist Talk with Binh Pho</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">September 26 | 6:00pm</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2015 09:54:44 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Charles Dickson - California African American Museum - September 24th - April 10th, 2016 <p style="text-align: justify;">Charles Dickson is a prolific artist who is widely known as a public artist with the ability to create studio works ranging from assemblage, functional art and sculptures using various materials such as wood, found objects, metal, and glass. During the creative process Charles Dickson imagines the raw materials before him being transformed into images, elements and shapes that will represent and symbolize the essence of the concept he envisions. Through this rendering process a metaphor will emerge illustrating how he seeks to convey and represent his views about a particular subject. Dickson creates five &ldquo;metaphors&rdquo; in the form of sculptures consisting of various mediums to transform the space, tell a story and engage the viewer through whimsical visual designs.</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2015 09:40:01 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list - California African American Museum - August 27th - February 28th, 2016 <p style="text-align: justify;">CAAM celebrates African American cinematic moments from the 1940&rsquo;s through an independent lens.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition features over 80 film stills and related photographs from the museum&rsquo;s unique collection of African American films from the 1940&rsquo;s, a time of limited character roles and access to the mainstream movie industry. Typically referred to as &ldquo;Race Films,&rdquo; these independent productions were created with a black cast and for an African American audience. Come explore the distinct images and stories told more than 65 years ago as part of the broader African American filmmaking tradition. Among the films selected are <em><strong>Beware</strong></em> (1946), showcasing musical pioneer Louis Jordan, <em><strong>The Betrayal</strong></em> (1948), directed and written by Oscar Micheaux, and <em><strong>I Ain&rsquo;t Gonna Open That Door</strong></em> (1949), starring Stepin Fetchit.</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2015 09:37:25 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list - Bowers Museum - October 31st - February 21st, 2016 <p style="text-align: justify;">Red, with its brilliant hue and broad cultural history, has inspired artists' imaginations and seduced viewers for millennia. Artists and dyers for centuries strived to find the color source to rival the best reds of nature, and to express the spirit, symbolism and sustenance of life.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Their quest ended in the Aztec marketplace of 16th-century Mexico, where Spanish explorers encountered the American cochineal bug. <em>The Red that Colored the World</em> translates the cochineal story into three dimensions, following the precious bug juice and its use in art from Mexico to Europe to the U.S. and beyond. Highlighting 100 objects-textiles, sculpture, paintings, manuscripts, decorative arts, clothing and more- the exhibition explores the history of cochineal and the seductive visual nature of red. The objects reflect the unique international uses of color, revealing its role in the creative process and the motivations of artists in their choice of materials.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition was organized by the Museum of International Folk Art, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, and made possible by the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities and circulating through GuestCurator Traveling Exhibitions.</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2015 09:33:51 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Sarah Perry - Koplin Del Rio Gallery - September 12th - October 23rd <p style="text-align: justify;">Koplin Del Rio is pleased to announce an installation: <em>Within the Walls</em> by Sarah Perry,&nbsp;the artist&rsquo;s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery since 1992. The show features a collection&nbsp;of sculpture completed in the past five years including an array of wall and freestanding&nbsp;artworks. The pieces, executed in a myriad of found and fabricated mediums, range&nbsp;in scale from several inches up to 8 feet.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Each unique piece in the exhibition is meticulously created in a seamless presentation of&nbsp;indistinguishable yet familiar materials that were found, reinvented and fabricated at the&nbsp;hand of the artist. Perry&rsquo;s palette isn't constrained by any man-made or natural material.&nbsp;Thus, her sculptures are formed from her own distinct visual language, based on forgotten&nbsp;histories and the artist's constant exploration of our universe, both terrestrial and celestial.&nbsp;A Sarah Perry exhibition is an otherworldly journey that engages the viewer in a multifaceted&nbsp;and enduring way.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A constant observer and appreciator of all manners of life forms and their patterns, Perry is&nbsp;particularly fascinated by the fundamental and oft-overlooked. Whether Perry is studying&nbsp;the mesmerizing path of a honeybee or the ordinary task of turning on a home faucet, her&nbsp;imagination opens a world of limitless visual possibilities. Each enigmatic artwork is a&nbsp;stepping stone along a path of discovery.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Artist&rsquo;s note:<br />Sometimes the things hidden within are only betrayed by a disturbance on the&nbsp;surface, by a shape turning below the ripples. Inside the dark of a wall, there is&nbsp;meaning to the hive 's motion toward the light. We may have forgotten the language,&nbsp;but we can see the sign of honey dripping from the smoldering wall socket.&nbsp;In my current body of work, some themes remain familiar while others are new;&nbsp;from reflections on the Moon, to warnings from the unconscious, from humor in&nbsp;old age to alternatives about what happens to us when we die. There is empathy&nbsp;for creatures and their human counterparts, both distilled down to their essence of&nbsp;hair and teeth. We are all family here anyway, reveling in the same remaining splendor:&nbsp;Howling and reaching, as we go down the same path within arms length of each other.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sarah Perry</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sarah Perry has been exhibiting her sculptures professionally since 1983. She has been&nbsp;in over 150 shows including 15 solo exhibits and a retrospective at the Armory Center for&nbsp;the Arts in Pasadena. Perry has received awards from the James Irvine Foundation - 2007,&nbsp;The Alliance of Artists Communities Visions From the New California Award - 2007, City of&nbsp;Los Angeles Grant for Individual Artists, C.O.L.A. 2000-2001, and California Community&nbsp;Foundation, Getty Trust Fund for the Visual Arts, Individual Artists Fellowship - 2000. &nbsp;She has taught undergraduate as well as graduate level sculpture at Otis Art Institute&nbsp;led workshops and lectured extensively at Museums and Universities including Claremont&nbsp;Graduate School and U80. The Frostig Collection, City of Albuquerque Library and private&nbsp;patrons have commissions and her pieces reside in numerous collections.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For further information or photos, please contact Ronald De Angelis at (310) 836-9055.</p> Sun, 30 Aug 2015 16:45:12 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Jack Goldstein - 1301PE - September 9th - November 7th Sun, 30 Aug 2015 16:29:03 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list John Finneran - Hannah Hoffman Gallery - September 19th - October 31st Sun, 30 Aug 2015 16:25:30 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list - Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park (LAMAG) - October 3rd - October 4th <div style="text-align: justify;"><strong>BEYOND EDEN</strong></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><em>A multi-gallery event celebrating the New Contemporary Art Movement put together by Thinkspace</em></div> <div style="text-align: justify;">The fifth and final edition of Beyond Eden will once again be hosted by the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park this coming October. Beyond Eden is a multi-gallery event celebrating the New Contemporary art movement in Los Angeles put together by Andrew Hosner (co-owner / curator at Thinkspace) and made possible by the City Of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.

With its foundation firmly planted in Southern California and a patron base here in Los Angeles that has been building over the past several decades, it's easy to see why Beyond Eden has been welcomed with such open arms by the Los Angeles arts community and has become an anticipated annual event. It will be sad to see it go but due to rising costs associated with the City, we can simply no longer afford to put this on and have it live up to the standards of our past events. We plan to make this final event one for the history books and one you won't soon forget.</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">Beyond Eden 2015 will showcase the works of five of California's finest New Contemporary art galleries and will be held during the weekend of October 3<sup>rd</sup>&nbsp;and 4<sup>th</sup>with an opening night celebration planned for Saturday, October 3<sup>rd</sup>&nbsp;from&nbsp;6-11PM.

It can glide through the profile of a face, pool in the outlines of flora, open channels between bodies and objects. Hand and lemon, pattern and torso, male and female, foreground and background; all linked by the fluent, aqueous line.&nbsp;Images are vapor light, drifting from surface to surface like falling leaves, gliding and merging into backgrounds. As a screensaver sifts through pools of photographs ad infinitum, postcard motifs cascade in perfectly randomized sequence. A torso seen on one canvas appears cropped and angled elsewhere. A piece of fruit once held in a hand now tessellated onto wallpaper.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Palmieri&rsquo;s works belong to a world without friction. His lines are vectorized, immaculate, their courses plotted in advance. Each plane is smooth as milk, each contour weighted, mapped and filled. If a brush mark displays an uneven edge, if a line should flick or curl, it is never a record of the action of a hand pressing brush and paint against canvas. Palmieri&rsquo;s hand acts like a digital cursor&mdash;the labor of process&nbsp;is removed from view. Expressiveness is an attentively regulated effect. The canvas&nbsp;is treated&nbsp;not as wood and weave, but a baseless fabric upon which linear pictures materialize, a surface with all the non- physical lightness of a digital interface.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In an early scene from Virginia Woolf&rsquo;s novel Orlando, the love stricken protagonist searches for the right words to describe the object of his affection:</p> <p style="text-align: justify;" dir="ltr"><em>He called her a melon, a pineapple, an olive tree,<br />an emerald, and a fox in the snow all in the space of three seconds;<br />he did not know whether he had heard her, tasted her, seen her,<br />or all three together.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Orlando&rsquo;s quest for the perfect description never settles into singular form. Instead, he evokes a vivid set of metaphors, each a spring and together an ebullient stream of images, so that the object of his love is never fixed but always in motion. Of course it is not only the image of love that remains in flux.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">From boy to woman, from the court of Elizabeth to a motorcar on The Strand, Orlando flows through bodies as well as through time.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Orlando&rsquo;s gender, time, and place may change, but every incarnation is only another version of the same fluid, sensuous character. And like Orlando, what is constant among Palmieri&rsquo;s transitory leitmotifs is the&nbsp;character&nbsp;of the line itself: a weightless, melodious script that signs its name in every loop and curl.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>&mdash;Rosanna McLaughlin</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <div style="text-align: justify;"><br /><br />Marco Palmieri (1984, Tulsa, USA.
