Although often grouped with Ca lifornia&rsquo\;s Photorealists\, the very unreality of David Ligare&rsquo\ ;s paintings and his underlying interest in antiquity belie such a label. A self-proclaimed Classicist\, Ligare&rsquo\;s perfectly ordered still life\ , landscape\, architectural\, and figurative paintings occupy their own poe tic world\, and the perfection of his unblemished subjects and hyper-purity of his paint application seem more unearthly than real.

\n

In achieving these results\, Ligare looks to the ancien ts for guidance. From Aristotle\, he has learned that many systems are base d on threes&mdash\;beginning\, middle\, and end\; birth\, life\, and death& mdash\;and he uses this tripartite structure in his compositions. He also r eference the formal relationships in classical sculpture and architecture. And yet his works are firmly based in the specifics of California&mdash\;it s topography and vegetation\, along with the omnipresent Pacific are bathed in the pure and wondrous light of the coast.

\n

Consisting of approximately 80 oil paintings\, watercolors\, and d rawings\, this will be the largest retrospective of Ligare&rsquo\;s work to date and will be accompanied by an extensive\, full-color catalogue.

\n

David Ligare: California Classicist was organized by the Crocker Art Museum\, Sacramento\, California and wi ll be presented at Laguna Art Museum from October 18\, 2015 through January 17\, 2016.

For thirty years\, The Can yon Project examined\, considered\, and lobbied for the very existence of the Laguna Canyon. Primarily photographic documentation\, the project f unctioned in turns as art and activism. It unfolded in fifteen phases\, the first in 1980 and the final phase culminating the project in 2010. The Tell\, the eighth and paramount phase\, was a six hundred thirty-six foot long photographic mural mounted in the canyon. More than 100\,000 pers onal photographs\, donated by individual contributors\, covered the plywood surface of the structure.

\n

Although o rganized and primarily executed by artists Jerry Burchfield and Mark Chambe rlain\, thousands of volunteers participated. Burchfield and Chamberlain fo unded BC Space\, the landmark gallery and photo production studio in downto wn Laguna Beach\, which served as the de facto headquarters for the project .

\n

This exhibition at Laguna Art Museu m\, The Canyon Project: Artivism\, was curated by Mike McGee\, and will feature photography\, assemblage\, documents\, and ephemera related t o the various phases of the project.

\n

Laguna Wilderness Press will publish a book about the project in fall 2015.

Germany&rsquo\;s Weimar Republic \, established between the end of World War I and the Nazi rise to power\, was a thriving laboratory of art and culture. As the country experienced un precedented and often tumultuous social\, economic\, and political upheaval \, many artists rejected Expressionism in favor of a new realism to capture this emerging society. Dubbed Neue Sachlichkeit&mdash\;New Object ivity&mdash\;its adherents turned a cold eye on the new Germany: its desper ate prostitutes\, crippled war veterans\, and alienated urban landscapes\, but also its emancipated New Woman\, modern architecture\, and mass-produce d commodities. \;New Objectivity: Modern German Art in the Weimar R epublic\, 1919&ndash\;1933 \;is the first comprehensive exhibition in the United States to explore the dominant artistic trends of this perio d. Organized around five thematic sections and featuring 150 works by more than 50 artists\, the exhibition mixes painting\, photography\, and works o n paper to bring them into a visual dialogue. Key figures of modernism\, su ch as Max Beckmann\, Otto Dix\, George Grosz\, August Sander\, and Christia n Schad are featured alongside lesser-known artists such as Aenne Biermann\ , Heinrich Maria Davringhausen\, Hans Finsler\, Carl Grossberg\, Lotte Jaco bi\, Alexander Kanoldt\, and Georg Schrimpf.

In 1839 Louis-Jacques-Mandé D aguerre announced the first permanent photographic process. Exposed in the dark\, developed by the vapor of mercury\, and stilled on a sheet of silver -coated copper\, the daguerreotype could seemingly turn fleeting experience s into tangible objects.

\n

Using magic as its entry point\, this installation investigates the ways in which photo graphers have manipulated the medium purported as reality&rsquo\;s mirror. Like magicians\, they incite wonder in their audience&mdash\;by isolating c hance encounters\, by evoking a sense of the extraordinary in ordinary subj ects\, or by constructing convincing illusions.

\n

Spanning 150 years\, this installation includes daguerreotypes f rom LACMA&rsquo\;s permanent collection and works by Eugè\;ne Atget\, Matthew Brandt\, Jo Ann Callis\, Henri Cartier-Bresson\, Harold Edgerton\, William Eggleston\, Matt Lipps\, and Nic Nicosia\, among others. In its ap parent veracity\, photography magically conjures the memories\, dreams\, an d experiences of being in the world.

Bringing together posters\, pr ints\, rare books\, and periodicals\, AKTION! Art and Revolution in Ger many\, 1918&ndash\;19 illuminates the central role played by the graph ic arts in the civil war that erupted in Germany at the end of World War I. An oft-forgotten episode in Germany&rsquo\;s tumultuous history\, the civi l war was a violent power struggle to determine the shape of the new republ ic\, punctuated by two failed workers&rsquo\; uprisings and the state-order ed assassination of communist leaders Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht.\n

Battles fought on the street also rage d in the world of images\, where art functioned not just as an illustration of political positions\, but also as an active agent for social change\, e specially in the deft hands of artists such as Max Pechstein and Kä\;th e Kollwitz. Highlighting a number of artists who were still working in a dr amatic Expressionist style at the precise moment that the avant-garde turne d to new modes of realism\, this presentation from the permanent collection offers a prequel to the equally turbulent chapter of interwar history expl ored in New Objectivity: Modern Ge rman Art in the Weimar Republic\, 1919&ndash\;1933.

Giant Robot\, a staple of Asian American alternative pop culture\, was launched in 1994 as a hand-assembled zine and quickly gre w into a worldwide empire. At its height\, Giant Robot included a glossy ma gazine\, a retail website\, several brick-and-mortar stores\, and even a th emed restaurant. More than two decades after its founding\, Giant Robot con tinues to be regarded as a highly influential brand encompassing many aspec ts of lowbrow\, skateboarder\, comic book\, graphic arts\, and vinyl toy cu lture.

\n

Since 2007\, JANM has partnere d with founder Eric Nakamura to produce the Giant Robot Biennale\, a recurr ing art exhibition dedicated to showcasing the diverse creative works broug ht together by the Giant Robot ethos. The Biennales\, which were initiated as part of JANM&rsquo\;s Salon Pop series of innovative youth culture exhib itions\, have been among the museum&rsquo\;s most popular. This year\, Giant Robot Biennale 4 will continue to celebrate Giant Robot&rsquo\;s distinctive world and will include many artists not seen in the previous B iennales.

\n

Filling both of JANM&rsquo\ ;s temporary exhibition spaces\, GRB4 will examine the evolution o f the Giant Robot aesthetic from its humble origins to its many celebrated manifestations. The lower-level gallery will be devoted to an exploration o f the art of drawing\, which Nakamura sees as the origin or starting point of the Giant Robot universe. A variety of drawing styles will be showcased\ , ranging from comic books to street art to illustration. Featured artworks will include sketchbooks by James Jean\, old and new drawings by Jim Lee\, and works by the acclaimed Korean artist Kim Jung Gi.

\n

Sources of inspiration will be explored through two innov ative elements: a &ldquo\;Giant Robot Room&rdquo\; filled with 100 iconic o bjects from the history of the brand\, including influential books and cove ted toys\; and a replica of artist Edwin Ushiro&rsquo\;s studio\, where vis itors will be invited to try their own hand at drawing. Performance will al so help to activate the exhibition for viewers\; Katsuya Terada will spend a week creating new works live in the gallery\, while Yumi Sakagawa will pr esent readings from her acclaimed zines. Finally\, the husband-and-wife tea m of kozyndan will contribute a special vinyl installation at the entrance to the gallery.

\n

The upper-level galle ry will focus on the diverse achievements of a range of accomplished artist s\, many of whose practices remain rooted in drawing. Featured will be exem plary paintings and installations by Luke Chueh\, Andrew Hem\, Mari Inukai\ , Audrey Kawasaki\, Nathan Ota\, Mu Pan\, and Yoskay Yamamoto. In addition\ , the long-running alternative photography zine Hamburger Eyes will contrib ute an installation of photographs. While showcasing a variety of practices \, this collection of work also unites a close cohort of artists\, many of whom are colleagues and friends.
