In 2013\, Paris-based a rtist Faycal Baghriche was invited to Los Angeles\, leading to his first vi sit to the city. During his stay he presented a lecture at Machine Project\ , entitled "You Talk the Talk". This hour-long performance presented Baghri che&rsquo\;s first impressions of Los Angeles&rsquo\; urban organization\, as well as his observations on the behavior of its inhabitants\, focusing o n the daily performative practices that are displayed on every corner of pu blic space. \;

"Walk the Walk" is a result of "You Talk th e Talk". \;

The exhibition serves as a space to continue a conversation that took place a year ago. The resulting large-scale install ation stems from Baghriche&rsquo\;s engagement with Los Angeles and his obs ervations on the sphere of everyday public life here. It addresses &ndash\; and plays with &ndash\; notions of visibility/ invisibility\, representati on/ replication\, and the impact (and exchange value) of poetic and perform ative acts in urban space. \;


Monday-Thursday\, by appointment only.

Please note: the artist is available for pri vate walkthroughs. \;
To schedule a walkthrough or an appointment to view the exhibition\, call the artist&rsquo\;s U.S. mobile number: 424. 205.9794 or email faycal[dot]baghriche[at]gmail[dot]com.

William Pope.L: Trinket is an exhibition of new and recent work by the Chicago-based artist\, an essential figure in the development of performance and body art since the 1970s. The exhibition will be installed in the soaring spaces of the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and is comprised of large-scale installations\, and f eatures a new performance and sculpture work made specifically for the exhi bition. The centerpiece of the show is Trinket\, a monumental\, cu stom-made American flag (approximately 50 x 20 feet) hanging on a pole in t he middle of the Geffen. During the museum's public hours the flag will be blown continuously by four large-scale industrial fans - the type used on H ollywood film sets to create wind or rain effects - and will be illuminated from below by a bank of custom theatrical lights. Over time the flag will appear to fray at its ends due to the constant whipping of the forced air\, a potent metaphor for the rigors and complexities of democratic engagement and participation. This is the largest museum presentation of Pope.L's wor k to date.

William Pope.L: Trinket is curated by MOCA Senior Curator Bennett Simpson.

In-kind media support is prov ided by KCETLink.

What if an art exhibition were an exercise\, and the preparations toward a process of common exercising between artists\ , ideas\, hosts and curators? Would it shift how we understand development and time&mdash\;the time of making and of experiencing? For the exhibition at REDCAT\, Anna Craycroft and Mark Vives have been invited to work collabo ratively in an experimental project titled \;The Wilson Exercises. The repeated interactions between the two artists will lead to the dev elopment of a collective language through riffs\, point/counterpoint dynami cs\, and provocations. Through a back-and-forth process of exchanges betwee n their two distinct fields of expertise\, the artists will explore novel p rocesses of learning in the real-time space of the exhibition.

\n

The Wilson Exercises \;is a multiple venue sequence : at Rogaland Kunstsenter in Stavanger\, Norway\, the artists exercised tog ether during an intensive boot-camp-meets-think-tank that will take shape a s a semi-public schedule of events that will define and continue into the g allery presentation at REDCAT. \;

On November 29th\, the gallery will present its fourth exhib ition of the work of Dan McCleary. In 2009\, LA Times art critic Christophe r Knight observed that McCleary has &ldquo\;a clear-eyed sense of gravity t hat recalls the likes of Piero della Francesca.&rdquo\;­\; His paintings usually contain two or three figures in everyday moments of Southern Calif ornia life\, such as sitting at a nail salon or ordering drinks at a coffee shop\, but his compositional structure has the solidity and balance of fin e architecture. McCleary employs classical methodologies and devices like t he golden mean\, as well as the traditional building blocks of design: cube \, sphere\, cylinder and cone. In fact\, in one painting entitled Thera py\, two people are considering a cluster of small cubes on a table as if\, like the artist\, they are contemplating the formal role these object s play in the larger composition. He always works from life\, staging his m odels and props in his studio where they are illuminated from a single natu ral light source from the left\, like the majority of Vermeer&rsquo\;s pain tings. McCleary also physically engages the viewer by orchestrating scenes with tables that invite one&rsquo\;s approach\, or empty chairs that projec t into the foreground\, a technique masterfully executed by Caravaggio in h is Supper at Emmaus.

In addition to the ex hibition at Craig Krull Gallery\, Dan McCleary will be the subject of a mid -career survey\, Dan McCleary: Every Day Sacred. Paintings\, 1993-2013< /em>\, at the USC Fisher Museum of Art from January 14 &ndash\; March 7\, 2 015.

When Danae Falliers explored the extraordinary\, Rem Koolhaa s-designed\, Seattle Public Library\, she photographed the building and its endless stacks and shelves of neatly organized books. Due to the relativel y low lighting conditions\, all of the text along the book spines softly di sappeared\, and Falliers recognized that her library photographs had edged closer to pure abstraction. She decided to pursue the potential of this dis covery by digitally enhancing and manipulating a group of new library image s\, blurring the book edges and re-assembling assorted rows of books of var ious colors and thicknesses. Rather than framed and captured in the mode of traditional photographic practice\, these images are constructed. They are fabricated using elements of color and form in the manner of a geometric a bstract painter or sculptor. Not surprisingly\, Falliers acknowledges the c onceptual and formal influences of three seemingly disparate artists\, Gerh ard Richter\, Ed Ruscha and Bridget Riley\, whose works she references in s craped blurs\, the use of books\, and the stripes of Op Art.

Concurrently on view in the Th inkspace project room is Persona\, featuring new works by San Fran cisco based artist Adam Caldwell. A technically impressive painter who has mastered a multiplicity of styles\, Caldwell constructs his narrative works as one might a theatrical collage\, juxtaposing disparate elements to crea te beautifully disjunctive and thought provoking mise-en-scè\;nes. Wi th an interest in art historical precedents\, philosophy\, and contemporary culture\, Caldwell creates intelligent\, historically ambiguous works that examine themes such as political conflict\, gender and identity. Combining painterly gesture with hyperrealistic elements\, his surfaces are dense an d rich with contrast. Expressionist moments are drawn against the graphic\, and figurative detail is set against atmospheric expanses.

\n

Caldwell has an attentive hand for the detailed impe rative of portraiture. The artist is drawn to the intimate depiction of sub jectivity\, rendering tenebrous portraits that seep intensity\, and at time s\, emotive discomfort. His darkly portraits are arresting glimpses into th e possibility of multiple symbolic &ldquo\;selves&rdquo\;\; frames unto an endless array of human masks and roles. \;

Thinkspace (Los Angele s) - is pleased to present Remnants\, featuring new works by Houston based artist Kevin Peterson. An accomplished hyperrealist paint er\, Peterson captures the intimacy of highly detailed portraits set agains t the anonymous urban sprawl of the cityscape. With an attentive psychologi cal subtlety\, he creates works that are emotive\, introspective\, and haun ted by the suggestion of narrative. The contradictory pairings in Peterson& rsquo\;s paintings are deliberately staged\, heightening a sense of irresol ution and poetic tension. He often portrays children and wildlife in gritty urban graffiti marked spaces\; antithetic pairings that deepen our sense o f the subjects&rsquo\; dislocation. Despite this cultivated uneasiness a qu iet optimism prevails in Peterson&rsquo\;s imagery\, as his portrayals of t he displaced\, faced with imperfect or degraded urban environments\, retain their innocence in spite of their worn surroundings. Suggesting both survi val and the triumph of the individual&rsquo\;s strength\, his works are emp athetic portrayals of the meek. As the title of the exhibition suggests\, P eterson offers us glimpses into the aftermath and detritus of unknown trial s and tribulations.

\n

Peterson complete d a BFA at Austin College in Sherman TX\, in conjunction with a psychology degree. His highly detailed paintings are primarily oil on panel\, though a t times the artist incorporates mixed media elements as well. A sense of so litude permeates his works\, as the protagonists are generally isolated and seemingly suspended in a dream-like state\, highlighted by the marked abse nce of others. Innocence coexists with wear and urban exhaustion in these p aintings\, a connotation of use the artist builds through beautifully rende red graffiti elements and stark urban architectures. The presence of a disp laced nature\, often in the form of wild itinerant bears or hyenas\, is an equally erroneous element staged within abandoned industrial spaces and deb ris. Each opposing element works as a foil to its polarity: the wild vs. th e urban\, innocence vs. degradation\, sadness vs. hope\, effectively captur ing a sense of the psychological conflict\, and human struggle\, inherent i n the existential journey.

\n

Remnan ts is Peterson&rsquo\;s second solo exhibition with the gallery. With a firm poetic allegiance to the underdog\, the artist continues to find bea uty in tension and opposition\, uncovering redemptive possibilities in the face of restriction\, assumption and boundary. \;
