The works assembled together here have not been previously exhibite d on the West Coast. The feature will run until Tuesday\, August 4th at 892 0 Melrose Ave on the corner of North Almont Drive\, one block south of Sant a Monica Blvd.

\n

Since 2009\, 101/EXHIBIT has managed sole representa tion of American Realist painter Charles Pfahl (American\, 1946-2013) and t he estate upon his passing. On view will be an assortment of 2D works rangi ng from early drawings and mixed media paintings to the large-scale oil on canvas\, entitled Shadow\, which is the final painting completed by the art ist.

Ian I ngram came to be represented by 101/EXHIBIT in the wake of the closing of B arry Friedman\, Ltd in New York City\, who previously represented the artis t. On view will be three large-scale charcoal on paper self portraits rangi ng from 2009-13. The artist is currently producing his first solo show with the gallery set for the winter of 2015-16.

\n

The gallery will also f eature a number of privately held selections by the late American Pop Artis t Larry Rivers. As the gallery looks deeper into the career of the artist a nd his significance within the context of the 20th century\, we would like to share a pre-emptive glimpse of his Construct paintings as we plan our fo rthcoming survey of his Birds of America works from the late 1990s.

18th Street Arts Center is ple ased to present a solo exhibition of Taipei\, Taiwan based artist Chih-Chie n Chen\, realized with the Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles. Presented in conj unction with a three-month residency supported by the Ministry of Culture\, Taiwan\, the artist will exhibit an installation of \; interactive vid eo works\, one of which will be made on-site. The new work will echo his pr evious video \;Flowing Pride: Ripple\, extending the motif of the Bougainvillea flower.

\n

Chih-Chien Chen&rsquo\;s works focus on the theme of &ldquo\;time&rdquo\;\, documentin g the city as the spatial embodiment of time&rsquo\;s passage. These works attempt to describe the process of positioning oneself in a city through fr agments of visual memory. In this space of memory\, the climate is hazy\, a nd the viewpoint is vertical. From an airborne position\, the artist employ s habitual methods of observation. By intentionally allowing for physical m etamorphosis\, the artworks come to represent the artist&rsquo\;s thinking space. Each succession of images is arranged vertically with a constant dis tance maintained between each object shown\, and the positions between the layers of imagery are readjusted according to oscillations dictated by the strength of currents. Under these conditions\, space changes\, with time tw isting the third dimension. Using commonplace mechanical devices\, Chen des cribes a logical drift: the experience of being lost in thought\, tracing a dé\;rive through the urban landscape.

\n

Chih-Chien Chen is a Taipei\, Taiwan based digital artist whose wor k has been presented in solo and group exhibitions in Taiwan and in interna tional exhibitions throughout Europe and Asia. Chen is a graduate of Tungha i University Department of Landscape Architecture and Taipei National Unive rsity of the Arts Graduate School of Arts and Technology. In addition to hi s work as a solo artist\, Chen is a member of the digital art collective Lu xuryLogico. He has had solo exhibitions at IT PARK Gallery and Galerie Gran d Siecle in Taipei\, and participated in group exhibitions at Centro Centro \, Madrid\; He Xiangning Art Museum\, Shenzhen\; National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts\, Taichung\; Museum of Contemporary Art\, Taipei\; Hong Kong Muse um of Art\; and Seoul International NewMedia Festival. With LuxuryLogico\, his work has appeared at Treignac Project\, France\; CAFA Art Museum\, Beij ing\; White Rabbit Gallery\, Sydney\; and at the 2014 Asia Triennial Manche ster.

\n

This exhibition receives ge nerous support from the Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles and the Ministry of C ulture\, Taiwan. 18th Street Arts Center has collaborated with these partne rs since 1999\, fostering cultural exchange by hosting two Taiwanese visiti ng artists annually.

Los-Angeles based artist Candi ce Lin continues her research into the historical and contemporary use of p lants in medicine\, cultural objects\, food\, consciousness-research\, and foraging practices in the Artist Lab. This exploration\, ongoing from her p ast work\, questions how socio-political interests engage with power\, circ ulating within language and form in the specific contexts of gendered relat ionships to technology\, nature\, food\, and domesticity. Lin explores the gendered and racialized figure of the healer\, herb-woman\, or witch\, and the role of botany in relationship to empire and colonialism. She considers historical figures\, such as the eighteenth-century explorer Jeanne Baret\ , as well as narrative characters\, like Sycorax\, the mother Caliban in Sh akespeare&rsquo\;s \;The Tempest. All are connected to legacie s of imperialism and revolution. She traces the inheritances of these syste ms in botanical nomenclature and in scientific taxonomies to look at how co ntemporary hierarchies define and order gender\, animacy\, and different ty pes of life forms.

\n

In the second half of her residency\, Lin will collaborate with artist Patrick Staff. Togethe r\, they will be investigating the hormonal properties of plants and their synthesis within the human body. Their research will concern phyto-hormones with which they will make a variety of substances including a natural test osterone salve harvested from local pine pollen and sculptural works that w ill form the basis for a film set\, within which the artists will document performative actions regarding the ingestion and constitution of such subst ances. Lin&rsquo\;s and Staff&rsquo\;s collaboration will incorporate forag ing and herbal medicine to examine the intersections of technologies of the body\, bio-political subjectivity\, and contemporary formulations of gende r and sexuality\, which also form the basis of Lin&rsquo\;s other plant-bas ed research project in the Artist Lab.

\n

Candice Lin&rsquo\;s Artist Lab Residency at 18th Street Arts Center is generously supported by the California Community Foundation and the Nati onal Endowment for the Arts.

Did you ever feel like your ma gazine should be looser? Masculini is a magazine so loose\, it&rsquo\;s bar ely contained by the giant cannelloni noodle poking through its center (Pas ta Pin&trade\;). The looseness of Masculini is evident in many senses: visu ally\, thematically\, chronologically and spiritually. Initiated in early 2 013 by Nancy Lupo and Molly McFadden\, Masculini Issue 0 is a set of conten t and random imagery collaged into the pages of twelve half-Vogue magazines from 1999. The logo\, typesetting and covers are by Cassandra Cisneros. Wh ile leafing through Masculini\, you may recognize such familiar faces as St ella Tennant\, a young fresh Gisele Bü\;ndchen\, those great girls from the late-90&rsquo\;s Prada ads\, one of whom I&rsquo\;m pretty sure sat in the row behind me on a plane once (in coach!). She looked great.

Masculini offers something special for nearly every reader\, from an inte rview with Memphis designer Natalie du Pasquier to a provocative script by Nik Gelormino\, a silver gelatin print by Em Rooney\, as well as nearly inv isible images from Christopher Page. There&rsquo\;s a plaid poster print by Cheryl Donegan\, three tissue collages from Christian Holstad and two take s on defining Art&rsquo\;s Minimum/The Minimum Degree by Stacie Vos and Jef frey Stuker. You&rsquo\;ll learn about the latest in office trends and how many circles there are in LA. If you hunt them all down\, you could win a M asculini T-shirt! Leila Hekmat reports on the romantic chasm dividing New Y ork and Berlin and Phyllis La Farge talks turkey about beauty. Some things that got cut out were a quiz (!) and a column called &ldquo\;Untenable.&rdq uo\; Also\, we forgot to ask Tony Conrad to write something\, which was a m istake.

Over the course of a month\, one issue of Masculini will be viewable under a vitrine designed and built by Nik Gelormino. The magaz ine will be moved through slowly\, at the rate of about 10 pages per day. F or more rapid viewing\, Masculini can also be found at masculini.us or by a ppointment in the collections of the Whitney Museum of Art and The Museum o f Modern Art in New York.

Pinto mi Raya \;( &ldquo\;to draw the line&rdquo\;) is an art/archive project founded by Mexi co City-based artists Mó\;nica Mayer and Victor Lerma to &ldquo\;lubr icate the Mexican Art System.&rdquo\; It began as an artist-run gallery in 1989\, at a time when both galleries and museums were particularly closed t o non-traditional forms of art. It became a successful digital art editoria l project in the early 1990s\, producing portfolios likeMimesis\, Aquer otipo\, and \;EMPA. From its inception\, \;Pinto mi Rayahas also served as a platform from which Mayer and Lerma produc e performances that deal with different aspects of the art system\, such as the relationship between curators and critics with artists\, or the need t o document and archive ephemeral contemporary art. At points in its life&nb sp\;Pinto mi Raya \;has also transformed into radio and televi sion programs\, and now serves as a home for an array of workshops and educ ational projects on performance art\, feminist art\, and activism.

The \;Pinto mi Raya \;archive has been a central aspect of the project. In addition to their own documents and collection of catal ogues about and invitations to exhibitions of Mexican art\, Mayer and Lerma have\, since 1991\, collected the art criticism\, reviews\, and news publi shed in major local newspapers. The archive now totals approximately 300\,0 00 documents. In 2011\, to celebrate their 20th anniversary\, Mayer and Ler ma put together \;Archivo Activo\, a compilation of nearly 11\ ,000 articles divided into themes such as women artists\, performance art\, political art\, architecture\, installation\, artist-run spaces\, art and education\, and digital art. This comprehensive project was donated to seve ral Mexican universities and museums\; along with the donation Mayer and Le rma have been giving workshops and lectures on art and archive\, and archiv e and gender.

While at the Armory\, Mayer and Lerma will host a series of conversations and workshops with Los Angeles-based artists\, shar ing their experiences over the past 25 years with the \;Pinto mi Ra yaproject and focusing on artist-run spaces and the artists&rsquo\; wo rk in the archive.

A related exhibition in the Armory&rsquo\;s M ezzanine Galleries will feature a selection of the archives&rsquo\; documen ts that focuses on a series of very personal performances Mayer and Lerma h ave presented since 1980\, on their wedding day\, and are based on their pe rsonal and art-making relationship. This section of the archive was selecte d for the exhibition because their wedding invitation was printed on the sa me letterpress equipment that is now housed and used daily at the Armory\, which was previously used at the Woman&rsquo\;s Building where Mayer studie d at the Feminist Studio Workshop in the late 1970s.

Drawing fro m their earlier life experiences in Los Angeles\, another component of this residency will consist of work to extend the material in the \;Pin to mi Raya \;archive. While in residence\, the artists will explor e materials at Roosevelt High in Los Angeles\, which Lerma attended\, and a t Otis College of Art and Design\, which houses the slide and ephemera arch ive of The Woman&rsquo\;s Building\, with which Mayer was very active.

This residency and exhibition dovetails with the Armory&rsquo\;s&nbs p\;Aesthetic Experiments and Social Agents: Renegade Art and Action in Mexico in the 1990s\, part of the Getty&rsquo\;s \;Pacific Sta ndard Time: LA/LA initiative\, which will result in a series of exhibi tions in the Southern California region in 2017. \;Aesthetic Experi ments and Social Agents \;focuses on the engaged social spaces cre ated by alternative art practices in Mexico in the 1990s\, highlighting the emerging and overlapping relationships and outcomes between artistic and a ctivist practices at that time.

This exhibition is supported by the City of Los Angeles\, Department of Cultural Affairs and is part of the Getty&rsquo\;s \;Pacific Standard Time: LA/LAinitiative.

Blum &\; Poe announces the gallery&rsquo\;s third exhibition with Drew Heitzler. As Don DeLillo in&nbs p\;White Noise \;(Viking\, 1985) postulated\, "Californians in vented the concept of life-style. This alone \;warrants \;their doo m.&rdquo\; In \;Pacific Palisades\, Drew Heitzler employs vide o\, sculpture\, works on paper\, and wall text to expand upon his interest in \;the intersection of two groups of German and Austro-Hungarian exil es and é\;migré\;s who called Los Angeles home in the post-war period. The first group\, popularly described as Weimar on the Pacific\, be gan arriving in the early 1930&rsquo\;s\, their numbers rapidly growing as Europe became more and more inhospitable. These were the Jewish and Leftist writers\, musicians\, and filmmakers brought to Los Angeles through visas and employment offered as life-saving grants by Hollywood Studios. The seco nd group began arriving after the war\, when NASA and the aerospace industr y\, under the auspices of the National Security Administration\, began recr uiting rocket scientists and communications specialists for the Space Race. These \;two groups\, now melded and dispersed\, became an expanded fie ld of influence from which aesthetic philosophy\, socio-political thought\, technological development\, and industrial material trickled down into the architecture and popular culture of Southern California\, where its co-min gling created the concept of lifestyle. Heitzler&rsquo\;s works explore thi s figment of the American Dream\, one that has consequences for which we ar e just now beginning to understand. \;

Have you ever wondered who was behind all of the timelines and creative graphics that make an exhibition come to life? This exhibition gives you the unique chance to learn about th e creative process of the Bowers Museum&rsquo\;s former Director of Creativ e Design\, Nancy Ravenhall Johnson.

\n

Where Ends Meet is about ingenuity and artistic ins piration\; it reveals a journey that thread through a graphic designer's ca reer and will be on display at the Bowers Museum from March 13 until August 16\, 2015. From 1987 to 2012\, Nancy Ravenhall Johnson grew and mastered a variety of positions at the Bowers Museum. She started as Gallery Store Ma nager\, then Graphic Designer\, VP of Public Relations and Director of Crea tive Design.

\n

Nancy&rs quo\;s works represent many hours of research vested in technical learning\ , developing graphics and timelines and overseeing their production. Exampl es of these will be used as backdrops to the exhibition. In the foreground will be her artistic compositions. The end result is a whimsical\, joyful v iew through a kaleidoscope of digital arts\, graphic design\, and fibers.\n

As an artist\, Nancy c ommented\, &ldquo\;I have the opportunity to work with amazing artifacts an d see how other cultures transformed craft into an individual art form.&rdq uo\; It was an experience that influenced the way she looked at the world. The objects of her creation and soulful thoughts were left as a resounding message of love for people\, their culture\, and folklore\, whispered from her spirit.

\n

Nancy elo quently explained her creative process through basketry\, which reveals her genuine nature found in both her professional and creative careers. &ldquo \;My baskets are a reflection of other activities or projects in my life. I often sketch as a means to figure out how to utilize a scrap of raw materi al that catches my eye. Then I attempt to surrender to the process. Like wa lking a labyrinth\, weaving is an activity that has become a metaphor for m y journey in life\, choosing what path to take\, learning lessons along the way\; it can be a time for sharing within a group or inner reflection. The results are always unexpected. It is that element of surprise in how the f inished piece will turn out that keeps the process exciting.&rdquo\;

\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">Paul Johnson\, Vice President of Exhibit De sign and loving spouse to Nancy shared\, &ldquo\;Little did she know that s he was the treasure in my life. Little did I know that I would be presentin g her gifted life for the public to view and falling in love with her all o ver again.&rdquo\; All of her experiences and vision find a way for all end s to meet.
