The Dumbing of America

6/24/16 Posted 6/24/16

The Dumbing of America Mixed Media Collage on Wood 36" x 80" This work is about how most Americans spend all their time looking at this shit and how publicity is triumphant in providing the pretext for success. We are all members of the society of the spectacle, which is correlate with capitalist society. Through these dated magazine clippings that I sourced from local Vietnamese-American nail salons, the commodification of celebrity culture is brought into focus. Now as you look at the work, focu...

Artists' Desks   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 1/21/16

What does the interior architecture of the artist's workspace tell us about their process and practice? In psychoanalytic terms, it's often assumed that the artist's studio is a reflection of the artist's thinking. But nowadays, the spaces artists inhabit are very different than what they once were: they've had to adapt to a more migratory life, squeezed by bigger economic problems. The desk is really the only universal marker left, a synecdoche of the artist's studio; it's where the action is c... [more]

Posted 12/30/15

“These photographs are actually racist.” I was shocked, to put it mildly, to hear my friend deliver this verdict of the Dana Lixenberg show at Huis Marseille. How could she say this of a body of work universally applauded for offering a respectful alternative to the stereotypical depictions of African-Americans? “They all look aggressive and arrogant, even the babies, and there’s hatred of white people in their eyes,” she retorted. “Lixenberg made them pose that way,...

A Visionary Who Created a World: Celebrating the Life of Noah Davis   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 9/11/15

In 2009, Noah Davis completed his painting The Year of the Coxswain. Five brown-bodied figures carry a boat across the frame and past a figure clad in black holding a trumpet at his side. It is a painting tremendous for its potent symbolism that lays no precise claims, for its mysterious foreboding rendered like a summer landscape. Much of the art world is still in mourning for Noah who on died Saturday, August 29th, at his home in Ojai, California. He was 32, his far-too-soon passing caused b... [more]

This Must Be the Place   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

The art bar has an amorphous history, beginning perhaps with Cabaret Voltaire and reaching critical mass with those pilot program Starbucks that serve wine and put out incomplete chess sets after sunset. My own baptism into this genre of space was descending into the speakeasy underneath China Art Objects’ original Chung King Road location seven or eight years ago. Cramped, hot, definitely not up to code—nonetheless, I felt insanely glamorous, tucked into an odoriferous red-lit corner, s... [more]

Photo Report: UCLA Spring Open Studios   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 6/1/15

Walking through UCLA's graduate studios in Culver City one Saturday evening is a like walking through a giant sprawling work in process, something artists rarely make in public, because it's messy, untuned, revealing in its imperfection, and of course, just incomplete. All the shabby studentness of the event contributed to the rawness of the works: half names scrawled on doors, crates of beers, some cheese and crackers warming on the floor of an installation. Compared to the professional patina... [more]

“I’m not walking down there, there’s a body on the floor,” my friend Shai said. We were coming out of a pizza place that had a gunshot mark in the TV. “Come on, it’s fine. She’s not dead.” As we walked past the disputed human being lying face down in the middle of the stenching sidewalk, she turned on her side and smiled vaguely into the distance with her elderly, meth-lined face.

LA Continues Growth as an Art Fair Destination in 2015   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Art Weekend LA kicked off yesterday with the promise of a Los Angeles art calendar packed with attractions: from the dynamic program of museum exhibitions and gallery openings to the city’s growing number of art fairs. The latter set a quick pace from the outset and this January boasts a busy schedule, beginning with the LA Art Show and Photo LA, two of the city’s longest-running fairs, and closing with the comparatively new yet highly influential Art Los Angeles Contemporary. In antici... [more]

A Cool, Darkling Swirl: Benjamin Millepied’s LA Dance Works at the Ace   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

What literature is to words and music is to sound, dance is to movement. Refined into a language—from the cosmic shimmy to the mash-potato, Viennese waltzing to a raver’s speaker humping, and of course, that formal staging from ballet to music videos we call simply Dance—we take movement and communicate joy or boredom, despair or titillation, or if good, all of the above. Seeing the LA Dance Project last weekend at the Ace in Los Angeles, it was hard not to find the whole af... [more]

No Longer Lonely (but maybe still a bit brutal): September Openings Across Los Angeles   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

The long languor of summer never truly fades in Los Angeles, but the heat simmers down just enough for the long sunsets to subside into cool nights, when prodigal travelers hurry home from sunstroked beaches and slaving artists vernissage across the city. Autumnal LA, though it certainly colors, hardly chills. Art exhibitions thickly dapple across this considerable town: Giuseppe Penone at Gagosian and Sam Falls at Hannah Hoffman on the 5th. On the 6th, Culver City unbolts with Ryan Mosley and Edgar... [more]

When Depression Strikes - HYPERALLERGIC

Installation view of “Depression” at Francois Ghebaly Gallery. All images by the author for Hyperallergic. LOS ANGELES — It was 4:20pm when I walked into Depression and encountered Andrea Ursuta’s piece “Stoner” (2013). A batting-cage ball-throwing machine creaked on, spun once, and died before it could eject anything from its quarantined-off belly. It is located inside a larger batting cage. There is no entrance. There is no bat to play with. Stones are scatte... [more]
