Signs and Alarms

 

Finally, an installation that gets me! I have nature and wet dreams and technology in my life, and it all stresses me out. But you know I keep coming back for more. Glutton for punishment.

Somos Mexicanos Americanos

“The Mexican Youth in the U.S. is, indeed, a very fortunate person. Why? Where else in one country do you have two cultures and civilizations of the highest type that have been developed come together to form into one?”
-Manuel Ceja, a student at Compton Junior College writing in the Mexican Voice 1938.

L’Imagerie Gallery

You’d think the NoHo Arts District would have a hell of a lot more visual art galleries than it does.

ARTWORK WILL BE LEFT ON THE WALL UNTIL IT IS DEMOLISHED was posted at the A+ D Architecture and Design Museum. The Beyond Graffiti 2 exhibition doesn’t have a concrete end date, because the museum doesn’t quite know when it will be razed to make way for the Metro Purple Line. So for now, the exhibition dates run haphazardly from March 28th, 2015 – May*. The time table drifts off into the ethers. It may sound gimmicky, but it’s far from that.

Who Knew Dude Quilters Were So Dope?

There’s no misnomer to these “man”-made quilts. Man-Made: Contemporary Male Quilters is exactly that, a dude quilting exhibition at the Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM).

I had the pleasure of catching CB1 Gallery’s inaugural exhibitions at their new warehouse arts district location, DTLA adjacent. While this post will go live after their first rotation of artists, CB1’s new location promises nothing short of savvy and talented artists to come. The opening exhibitions at CB1 Gallery featured the Guest Gallery exhibition In Search of the Dot that Created the Circle: Geometry in Nature, alongside Laura Krifka’s Reap the Whirlwind and Andre Goeritz’s schadenfreude.

When I first walked in to the Charlie James Gallery, I didn’t walk in. The owner, Charlie James (complete relation to the gallery namesake), saw me tug at the locked door and sprinted over, keys in hand and apologies in mouth. The well-read and well-spoken Charlie apologized for what I’m sure he saw as lollygagging, but what I saw as local charm. He was chatting with another gallery owner on Chung King Road under the China Town lanterns.
