ICONOCLAST

Silverlake denizen Susan Mogul has been handcrafting film diaries about her ‘self’ for over four decades. Among other roles, she's been iconic video and performance artist, feminist vaudevillian, devoted Angelino, filmmaker. Her witty yet self-effacing works archive sustaining herself here, despite the allure of Hollywood. Novelty seekers soon surmise her intrepid humor and madcap insights refer to a solidly artbased practice, as Mogul has perfected facing her own lens since relocating to L.A. in 1973. Though born into a large (6 kids) Jewish family in New York City, she was incited to move 3,000 miles west by the seminal Feminist Art education program being launched at California Institute of the Arts. Once present, Mogul began documenting the consecration of a visionary feminist space within an erupting art scene. Thirty-seven years later, Otis College of Art and Design commissioned Susan Mogul's Woman’s Building (2010, 9 minutes), in conjunction with the Getty sponsored exhibition Doin’ It in Public: Feminism and Art at the Women’s Building. An exhibition, scheduled in 2011, will take place at the Ben Maltz Gallery. Revisiting the spontaneous, beautiful, ritualistically chaotic nature of personal life as meaningful for one's politics/art comes into focus through continually making work, which has grounded Mogul. Fast forward to being a Guggenheim Fellow, receiving numerous grants, fellowships and prestigious commissions, her groundbreaking shorts, ensconced in several permanent museum collections, are appropriately representative of feminist art and activism in this nation's history. So many monologues later, Mogul is more deeply exploring dialogue and therefore, collaboration. In discussing a current project undertaken with Ilene Segalove, the influential multimedia artist also her contemporary, Mogul relishes their burgeoning partnership and muses about inspired possibilities for her future works. Some months ago, she attended her first retrospective at Visions du Reel, in Switzerland. Audiences in Europe and Japan respond especially warmly to her voice, keeping her busy on the film festival circuit. Vivacious performer that she is, off-camera she's more pensive, reminding me that although I may think I know her 10

ICONOCLAST

intimately, having only just watched these autobiographical works, I only know what she wants me to. Hardly facile, even in this age of over-processed reality, Mogul's tireless relationship with her camera finds her performing, observing, examining. Ultimately it is all just to aid and abet her mastery in the art of self-discovery. Impacted by consciousness-raising, she still investigates the everyday, the ordinary, the mundane. She speculates on how, for all that was fought for, in many ways, not much has changed, for women. “My work teeters between several worlds and several genres. It always has. Not quite documentary, not really avant-garde, yet not mainstream either. My work, like my life, falls into a space in between, fitting in and not fitting in.” Mogul's characteristic schtick does lighten the existential load she relentlessly presents. With the belief that they may also produce similarly engaging texts, the inspired everywoman may take up her habit, only to discover the serious devotion to craft that belies her casual manner. “Since 1973, my work has confronted the way a woman's life is supposed to 'look,' and be lived. And although it was never my original intention, my body of work turned into the story, or autobiography of a never-married woman. It is also the story of a woman with a camera.” Committed to expanding her range, Mogul recently began directing and producing what she terms ‘Docu-Memoirs.’ Her ‘slice of life melodramas,’ Everyday Echo Street: A Summer Diary (1993, 32 minutes) and I Stare At You and Dream (1997, 56 minutes), ambitiously display her signature insider's view, tenderly cutting through layers of complexities to divulge her subjects' desires, wounds, and hopes. It is compelling to think of this former Guggenheim ‘Fellow,’ who once made her vibrator the subject of early video art/performance (Take Off, 1974), turning her disarming interview style, a blend of the informal and the intimate, upon other 'regular' folks, in order to craft an authentic reflection of their lives and the people in it. That Mogul’s individualized films, replete with her trademark humor and grace, as well as the option of 'conventional or unconventional' representation, can be commissioned, to enhance celebratory events, golden anniversaries, milestone birthdays, or private screening with close friends, appears to be another form of the more collaborative art Mogul is embracing of late. 'Sifting through the past, piecing it together with the present,' for others to actually see themselves, through the eyes of those closest to them, and then to have those closest eyes seen and meticulously shaped by Mogul, the process and result might well be priceless. Without a doubt, the films 12

she makes are artful, and often collectible. Howard Rosenberg, the Los Angeles Times television critic, said “Susan Mogul has a talent for swiftly getting you interested in people about whom you know nothing- so interested that the hour you spend with them zooms by.” In response to being quizzed about her Silverlake neighborhood, Mogul enthusiastically proclaimed her love of Video Journeys, an independent film/video store with over 20,000 titles, many of them specialty and rare. Of course they carry Driving Men (2008, 68 minutes), her first feature length work, a poignant ‘road movie’ she calls ‘a culmination of the motivations, intentions, and aspirations of my previous work.’ “I would say there are no models in making the shift from avant-garde video to feature-length films. The shift was organic, not strategic. I never set out to be an avant-garde artist nor a feature length filmmaker…when I was eight I wanted to be an actress. And when I went off to college I planned to study journalism and become a roving reporter. I wanted to travel. I wanted to be moving. I wanted momentum.” Generous in crediting her film education to this local, albeit hip, video store, she's clearly more than casually familiar with everyone who works there. This, I am gathering, is what drives her wondrous nature. Her quest to connect with people, by asking them about themselves, being truly interested, and then by extension, compassionate, has lit a quiet wisdom within her. Simply, she has taken the time to know herself. Is this the key to being able to know another? Literally loving the light, the air, the sense of space here, Susan Mogul as adventurer, maverick, and a seer of all sorts embodies the emotional resonance L.A. still seethes with, somewhere deep down.

Susan Mogul is represented by Jancar Gallery (www.jancargallery.com) in Los Angeles. More information about her work can be found at: www.susanmogul.com Susan Mogul’s titles can be purchased or rented from: www.reframe.org or www.VDB.org

TRADING DESIGNING SPACE FOR ENHANCING SPACE, IN 1993 HE FOUNDED ART SEEN, AN ART CONSULTING BUSINESS SPECIALIZING IN PROFESSIONAL ART PROCUREMENT. BEING A SUCCESS IN A NICHE BUSINESS FOR 17 YEARS, FABRIK MAGAZINE ASKS LEONARDO, THE 40-YEAR-OLD AFFABLE ART CONSULTANT, WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE ‘ART SEEN.’ FABRIK SITS DOWN WITH LEONARDO AND DISCUSSES THE ART OF ART CONSULTING...

Fabrik: What does an art consultant do? Leonardo Ledesma: We, meaning the artists and I as a team, are available to consult for anyone or any company who has a valid interest in art no matter how big or small the project. We do a number of services including selecting and acquiring artworks, defining budgets, commissions from concept to completion, framing, art placement and installation. Fabrik: How do you gauge your client's preferences for their art needs? LL: I find out what they envision for their home or office. Sometimes they have no clue and are starting from scratch, then my job becomes more complex but at the same time it gives me more freedom to pick a direction. It gives me a lot of joy when a client gives creative license to find the right artist for their space and usually they are very happy with the results. Fabrik: What kind of clients do you art consult? LL: Healthcare, corporate, hospitality, residential and individual. Each one of those is a very unique experience and I've learned a lot with each. I also work with interior designers quite often. Fabrik: How do you convey the value of art? LL: I bring original art to clients so they can feel and experience the tactile nature. When clients are face to face with it, they realize how compelling it is. I do send them digital images, but I also try to engage the client with art in person by either inviting them to an artist's studio or going to them to place the art in their space. Fabrik: How does art consulting differ from being a gallery owner? LL: Art consulting is much more of a pro-active, direct process. A lot of the times my

clients don't have the luxury of time to do the research and visit galleries. I don't compete with galleries. I work parallel to them. Fabrik: What drives your decision to represent an artist? Is it purely on commercial merit? LL: It's a mixture of what excites me and the commercial value. What has to be the discerning factor is choosing art that represents a certain image for my business. Fabrik: Can you tell us a success story of an artist you've discovered? LL: Yes, there was an artist I discovered that was just painting for fun, painting on the weekends in his garage. I fell in love with his work early on, before he was selling his work at all, then I slowly started to show his works to my clients and began to sell it. Then things really started to evolve for him where he secured gallery representation and things took off. Fabrik: How has the economy changed your business? LL: You have to adjust and find new ways of marketing yourself and keep the relationships that you have. I've been fortunate that I do have a loyal client base and I've been around long enough that they trust me and the artists I represent. Fabrik: Do you think it's a more realistic art market now? LL: I think it brought a level of clarity to the art world. The people that are buying art are more careful, are educating themselves more. The more savvy art buyer will win at the end of the day in this market. Fabrik: In the future, do you see yourself continuing in the art consulting business? LL: Yes, my goal is to keep expanding to bigger projects. For example, I'm in talks with a biotech company about creating an annual sculpture show on their grounds. I will get to be the curator and feature a new artist every year. I also want to expand in the Asian art market. Fabrik: Just for fun, what do you think art is by definition? LL: Doing something dangerous with style. Dangerous being defined as communicating a new idea or commenting on society. Fabrik: And another $64,000 question, what makes an artist an artist? LL: Someone who is devoted to their craft unconditionally, cultivating their work over time in a very powerful, compelling way. The test of time is what defines an artist to see their evolution. 28

PROFILE WORDS CRAIG STEPHENS IMAGES COURTESY ALEX GUOFENG CAO

ARTIST ALEX GUOFENG CAO’S INNOVATIVE MOSAICSTYLED ART WORKS ARE RESONATING ON A GLOBAL SCALE. INSPIRED BY SUCH MASTERS AS IRVING PENN, RICHARD AVEDON, EDWARD WESTON, AND ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE, CAO’S CAREER AS AN ARTIST HAS SEEN HIM STUDY AND EXPERIMENT WITH A VARIETY OF PHOTOGRAPHIC METHODS AND TECHNIQUES. Of late his photographic creativity has leaned towards large-scale monochromatic digital works, namely a series called "Legend." Explaining the cryptic imagery, Cao reveals, "I'm fascinated by icons and celebrity. I have worked with many from Lindsay Lohan to Tommy Lee Jones, they shared a common musicality that translates internationally." The "Legend" series sees a melding of two contrasting artistic techniques. Images of pop culture icons, Pam Anderson, Marilyn Monroe, Lady Di, are reinvented and reinterpreted care of Cao's dexterous hand and creative vision. Technically, Cao says that despite his fascination with the digital medium, monochrome tradition is something he still romanticizes, " The subtle gradations of tone between deep black and stark white are the generators for all the colors I need to create my world." Thematically exploring iconic celebrity images and mass culture, via the precision of digital photography, "Legend," applies the intricacy of the traditional mosaic to the modern day concept of digital pixilation to reinterpret images of pop culture icons. Using an innovative technique, larger images of pop icons are created by a constellation of tiny repetitive images each slightly different, though smaller, variations of the larger iconic image. Cao reveals that the method of creation is "that of composing a mosaic of memories into an impression of the present. " He adds, "I am impressed and greatly influenced by the ideal forms and proportions of the iconic and statuesque sculptures of the ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman eras." Another great source of inspiration are impressions from his trip a decade ago of the mosaic floors and walls of Naples and Pompeii. "It's the combination of these two base strategies that allows my work to take shape." Commenting on the work, Cao reveals, "The powerful oversized main images and the armies of tiny images that compose them are specifically paired to create a dialogue. The histories and backgrounds of each of the characters are pitted against each other." 36

An image of Marilyn Monroe is populated by countless diminutive images of the Mona Lisa. "These two women are, arguably, the most famous women in the world," Cao adds. "They share an unusual bond in that they are both, in some ways, fictional characters. The pairing also suggests another connection in that they are both fantasies. One is the fantasy of the 20th century and the other is the singular fantasy and imagination of Da Vinci." As one looks closer and closer at the images, the process of encoding and layering of information of the times is evident. As time passes, so information gets deposited into the works. These images undergo evolution and changes as time passes, and they bear the marks of a collection of history, as well as the author's intent. Testament to the series' appeal is the level of global recognition it has attained. The “Legend� series is now showing at a range of private galleries and art fairs, in North America, as well as Europe and Asia. While exhibited at Art Basel Miami in 2009, the Miami Herald devoted a cover story to the series, as did other esteemed North American titles including the Los Angeles Daily News and Santa Monica Daily Express, who offered endless praise for the work with assorted superlatives such as "enticing" and " innovative."

Painter, Luis Sanchez WORDS ANDIE VILLAFAÑE IMAGES COURTESY LUIS SANCHEZ

Luis Sanchez comes from a culturally diverse family of artisans, dancers and bullfighters. The youngest of three, Luis was born in Mexico City in 1968 to a Cuban-born father and MexicanLebanese mother. By the age of seven, he was demonstrating an innate talent much like his father's. He was enrolled in the prestigious Museo de Bellas Artes, where along with observations of his father's work and techniques, Luis initiated a life-long study in the visual arts. In 1979, he immigrated with his family to the U.S., where they settled in Seattle, Washington. After more than 20 years, the rainy weather of the northwestern state compelled Luis to move south. He set up base in sunny Los Angeles, where he has been living and working for the last seven years. Luis works in a number of mediums and employs a variety of techniques that contribute to his distinct and dramatic style. He uses acrylic, dry pigments and stucco to paint photorealistic portraits that he renders in extremely fine detail, with an underlying texture reminiscent of the degraded stucco walls he remembers from his childhood. The subjects are of his vaudevillian circus friends, surrounded by layers of design elements and lettering. His love of seeking and finding random objects and other pieces of junk, as Luis calls it, inevitably led him to assemblage. He hinges his large-scale diptych canvases and adorns shadowboxes and smallscale ceramic figures with items that he collects off the ground. In his latest sculpture series, Luis seamlessly adheres coils, screws, washers, keys, feathers and other articles to a set of characters that he sculpts in various postures. Whether reclining in child's pose, dangling by the feet upside down or erect with open arms, Sanchez demonstrates a mastery of scale and proportion in depicting the human form. He sculpts the figures with masks and wire-wraps coronets of nails to their heads. In contrast to the barefaced and carefree subjects of his paintings, these figures are distressed, with severed limbs that mirror the afflictions of the artist. For the last three years, Luis has been living on dialysis. He had been the recipient of a kidney transplant that had reached the end of its life span. In 2007, his delicate health forced him to undergo four surgeries within the year. It was during recovery periods that he began the series, which has served him in releasing physical, mental and spiritual frustrations. This lifealtering experience has been painful, involving needles and machines that Luis translates into the raw and industrial appeal of his sculptures. He's appropriately entitled the series “Warriors,” as it represents the struggle and endurance of all the battles he's fought, survived and overcome. Amidst the fragileness of his life, Sanchez found salvation in clay, turning his sickness into extraordinary works of art, while awaiting a second transplant to save him from a lifetime of disease. “Warriors” is currently on view at the Lois Lambert Gallery at Bergamot Station through July 4. More information can be found on his website at http://www.luissanchezfineart.com. 40

EDWARD CELLA:

DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE WORDS SHANA NYS DAMBROT IMAGES COURTESY EDWARD CELLA ART & ARCHITECTURE GALLERY

Edward Cella Art + Architecture is more than an art gallery—it’s an exhibition program with a mission. Over the past ten-plus years, first in Santa Barbara and on LA’s Miracle Mile since 2009, the gallery’s expansive activities have explored the ages-old dialogue between fine art and architecture with a sophisticated and nuanced series of exhibitions, artist grants, and public forums. Reflecting the modern taste for interdisciplinary boundaryblurring, specifically the extensive overlapping connections and resonances between painting, drawing and modern architecture, ECAA is not an advocate of any particular aesthetic style. Rather, its focus is on illuminating the character of the creative process— through the lens of Cella’s personal curatorial, scholarly vision. Abstraction’s natural inhabitation of spatial, structural elements of form, its natural facility for depicting the spaces inside and between objects, makes it a natural idiomatic counterpart to the psychologically compelling quality of architectural renderings; and the history of mutual influence, as well as tension between the practices of artists and builders, is certainly a story worth telling. In terms of what gallery-goers are likely to encounter, ECAA remains essentially a painting and drawing gallery-though there is a hefty presence of “alternative-process” photographers in the program; and despite its predilection for minimalism and abstraction, the work of more than a few fine figurative painters adds considerably to its depth. A recent exhibition of meditative, elegant, and quirky abstract geometrical watercolors by the renowned architect Frederick Fisher is a perfect exemplar of the ECAA 44

mission. A delightful exhibition in its own right, the extensive series of intimate color sketches revealed a great deal about the way Fisher plays with space and mass, theorizing by hand, if you will, as he seeks a clearing, a balance, a certain harmony-almost like working on a puzzle. Carl Jung once wrote, “Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain,” and it's exactly that kind of process made visible that is the goal and privilege of ECAA. The current exhibition of large-scale abstract paintings, Depth of Field by Mark Harrington (who lives and works in Bavaria, also underscoring ECAA's international scope) presents a very different exhibition experience; however, the artist's articulated interest in the optical and quasi-spatial experience of the receding picture plane makes both a compelling topic for abstract painting, and an ideal overlap with an architect's creation and encapsulation of empty interior spaces waiting to be fulfilled by encounters with sentient, mobile individuals. Other artists and architects represented in the gallery's holdings, whose work spans the last century, help expound on the asymmetrical balance at ECAA. From Ed Ruscha's own well-documented enchantment with LA buildings (notably, Standard Oil and Sunset Strip edifices), not to mention his famous, ongoing collaborations with Frank Gehry-also represented in the ECAA stable; to Lucas Reiner's urban landscapes depicting the contortions and DIY vernaculars that pop up in response to the blunt instruments of committee-ordered, aesthetically analgesic, neglectful civic maintenance. From Lee Friedlander's photo-based images poetically interpreting the experience of inside places and personal, creative spaces; to Wayne Thiebaud's flirtations with abstraction, expressing the effects of distance, perspective, and motion in the experience of a city-ECAA examines the architecture/art discourse from every angle. Deconstructivist icon Peter Eisenman; the progressive, interdisciplinary practices of Carlos Diniz, Ball-Nogues and Lead Pencil Studio; the rarely seen personal works of titans like Le Corbusier, Neutra, Schindler whose efforts have inspired not only future architects, but also painters, photographers, scholars, and aficionados for generationsall of these elements and many more of equal stature give ECAA a flavor not unlike what a campus gallery at the Bauhaus might have had-expressing the free dialogue between equal branches of artistic endeavor, deliberated housed under one roof. Philip Johnson has said that, “All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space,” and Constantin Brancusi called architecture “inhabited sculpture.” But when it comes to ECAA, it's fittingly the words of Frank Stella that best express the openended experiment underway on its walls: “Architecture can't fully represent the chaos and turmoil that are part of the human personality, but you need to put some of that turmoil into the architecture, or it isn't real.” 48

PERFORMANCE AND MEDIA SUMMER FESTIVALS

JULY/AUGUST

NOW at REDCAT WORDS JACKI APPLE IMAGES COURTESY REDCAT

REDCAT's annual summer NOW festival (New Original Works) provides a showcase for emerging and established artists to present short form works in which they can experiment with a variety of media, and take risks. Some of the most outstanding artists go on to create full-length evenings in later REDCAT seasons. Most notably the multimedia collaborative Cloud Eye Control. One member, Miwa Matreyek, is returning to this year's festival with another new piece featuring her award winning animation projections combined with the moving body. Other former NOW notables have included choreographer Lionel Popkin, Carole Kim and butoh master Oguri with musicians Dan Clucas and Alex Cline, and the raucous theater ensemble Poor Dog Group. This July the NOW festival will be featuring eight new groups of multimedia artists, musicians, and performer. Three different weekend programs ( July 22 -Aug 7) traverse a range of genres and forms from science-fiction, to political satire, autobiography, orchestral spectacle, cinematic shadow play, and intimate duet. Three artists take on socio-political MIWA MATREYEK themes. Director Maureen Huskey stages “MYTH AND INFRASTRUCTURE” Jennifer Barclay's dark look at radical campus politics in “Exile of Petie DeLarge.” The 30-piece musicians' collective Killsonics engage in historical (and hysterical) parody with “Tongues Bloody Tongues,” a tour of duty “parade” 52

spanning several millennia in Iraq. And Alexandro Segado's science fiction allegory “Replicant vs. Separatist” incorporates live feed video with performance. Another group explores the more mythical terrain of light and shadow, illusion and reality. Choreographer Rae Shao-Lan Blum and composer Tashi Wada look at time and transformation in a long-term relationship, while Christine Marie and Company delve into history, fantasy, place and time through the liminal space of shadows and matter. Miwa Matreyek's multimedia “Myth and Infrastructure” is a dream-like excursion through fantastical landscapes and mindscapes. Finally two highly personal works. Now in her 80s, performance artist Margalit Oved’s life journey and Yemenite Jewish family history is the vehicle for illuminating universal themes. While Los Angeles dancer Hana van der Kolk’s solo performance combines her own gestural language with a pop music vocabulary. For more information see www.redcat.org

PERFORMANCE AND MEDIA SUMMER FESTIVALS

JUNE 4–27: VENUES ABOUT TOWN

Dance Camera West WORDS JACKI APPLE IMAGES COURTESY DANCE CAMERA WEST

At first glance, nothing seems more antithetical than the pure physicality and energy of a live dance performance, and the viewing experience of cinema on a screen. Thus dance on film is a very particular kind of challenge. In order to move beyond mere documentation, the choreographer must create dance works composed specifically for cinematic time and space, redefining dance and pushing the boundaries of both media. Thus a whole new hybrid art form is born. For the past nine years, Los Angeles-based Dance Camera West has been presenting and promoting the best of international dance cinema. The annual festival not only explores innovative new ways to see dance, it exposes us to works by artists we might never have an opportunity to experience. Highlights from past years have included site-specific outdoor projections incorporating both landscape and architecture as “screens,” as well as theatrical screenings. This year's month long festival June 4-27 covers a number of Los Angeles venues, and variety of formats including experimental short films from abstract to narrative, documentaries, symposia, and outdoor projections of local works. The festival returns to the Hammer Museum with a celebration of the work of the late Pina Bausch, the incomparable master of transformative theater and neo-expressionist dance whose 40 years of work transcended the boundaries between forms. Last seen in L.A. in 2007 with the North American premiere of “Ten Chi,” her sudden death in July 2009 has been a great loss. The program at the Hammer includes two films-- the documentary “Pina Bausch” with performances by her company Tanstheater Wupperthal and interviews with all her collaborators, and “Dancing Dreams,” both followed by a conversation with collaborator Anne Linsel. Also screening at the Hammer is “SurREEL Moves,” a visually inventive collection of recent award-winning international dance shorts that defy traditional notions of dance. Expect to see the unconventional - airborne and immobile bodies, sushi, reindeer, an aquarium. Other highlights include a three-day program of daring experimental dance media shorts at REDCAT, media and choreography installations plus reception at the Timothy Yaeger Gallery in Beverly Hills, and outdoor projections at Cheviot Hills Recreation Center. For full program schedule and information see www.dancecamerawest.org 54

ARCANA: BOOKS ON THE ARTS

THE BROAD STAGE

The obscure shop doesn't look like much squeezed between the glossy chain stores of the Promenade, but step inside and you'll know it's like discovering the holy grail of rare and out of print books on 20th Century art, architecture, design and photography. With over 100,000 books in stock, they have what you're looking for and if they don't they'll search the world over to find it. Here are just a few new finds Arcana is adding to their collection: Donna Santisi's self-published "Ask the Angels" from 1978 was the first book of photographs to document the then nascent Los Angeles Punk and New Wave scene, avantgarde “Japanese Photobooks from the 60's and 70's,” “The LA Earthquake Sourcebook” designed by Stefan Sagmeister, created by Art Center College of Design students, and “Eileen Polk: Punk is Dead.” Alex Worman of Artnet sums up this literary treasure, "Since 1987, Lee Kaplan has operated the finest art bookstore in Los Angeles, serving the Hollywood creative community as well as artists and art collectors. Arcana specializes in catalogue raisonnes, artist monographs, photography, modern art and most notably a locked-glass case of hardto-find collectibles. The store is filled wall-towall, but is lovingly well-organized and attended by a friendly, knowledgeable staff.”

What do you get when an A-list celebrity, a cultural philanthropist, a Santa Monica College president and an opera singer chat at a dinner party? A $45 million dollar 'dream venue' performing arts center in Santa Monica, likened as the Walt Disney Hall of West Los Angeles, is born. The Broad Stage, named after major contributor Eli Broad, is a 499-seat house that offers intimacy and grandness simultaneously. Fashioned after classic Italian 'horseshoe' opera houses, the design allows viewers perfect eye contact with the actors or musicians from any seat in the house. Dustin Hoffman, Chairman of the Artistic Advisory Board explains, “What makes it unique is that it's a stage for dance, opera, and musicals… It's also an intimate theater and it looks great.” The Center aspires to reach beyond a traditional performing arts venue and serve as a “laboratory of creative spontaneity”. Speaking of laboratories, the Edye Second Space black box offers free experimental performances on Sunday evenings at 7:30 pm and is available for rental.

ANDREW’S CHEESE SHOP Andrew Steiner opened Andrew's Cheese Shop in August 2008. But his obsession with this fermented dairy product began twenty-four years ago at Joachim Splichal's Patina Restaurant. With cheese fueling his drive, he was quickly promoted from waiter to Maitre d'Fromage (akin to a wine sommelier) and soon thereafter established Patina's legendary cheese menu and cart. Steiner says of his shop, “This shop is a dream come true for me - I get to know people from the community while finding out what their tastes are and then surprising them with something they didn't know about.” And Steiner's personal touch and interaction with customers is what sets his shop apart. Locals count on him to be there when they come in for a customized cheese platter to impress guests with or to prepare the perfect Hollywood bowl picnic catered to their specific cheese whims. Although serious about the business, he also knows how to have fun with it too - he hosts monthly beer and grilled cheese sandwich nights (don't expect to see Velveeta slices anywhere near these gourmet delights.) When the next fromage craving strikes, visit Andrew's Cheese Shop to take in the intoxicating fragrance of cheeses from around the world and nibble on a few of them while Steiner lovingly explains their attributes as if he were describing his own children. 728 Montana Avenue Santa Monica, CA 90403 (310) 393-3308 www.andrewscheese.com

CHERYL FUDGE No, it's not a new candy shop paying tribute to the confection grandma used to make… Cheryl Fudge is a Nantucket-based fashion designer expanding her eco-fashion empire to the West Coast by introducing terms like 'upcycled' and 'refabricated' with the opening of her latest store in Santa Monica. The expansive store's window is framed with hundreds of vivid vintage scarves paying tribute to what put her on the fashion map reworking vintage Gucci and Chanel scarves into sexy patchwork halters adored by celebrities like Julia Roberts and Fergie. Like the scene from the movie, 'Pretty in Pink', where Molly Ringwold's character transforms a fluffy pink prom dress to an edgy, fashion-forward couture piece - that's exactly the spirit Cheryl's designs embody. She refashions vintage original pieces, hand dyes them and adds funky splashes of color by using lace, embroidery or fabric. Cheryl insists this manner of taking the old and making new is her part to protect Mother Earth. This passion inspired her to launch Fashion Camp - a place where others can learn the art of 'upcycling' and be empowered by designing their own clothes. Call it a modern day quilt circle. Women of all ages get to pull from Cheryl's vast vintage collection, fabrics, patches and other treasures to create one-of-a-kind bags, shirts, dresses, and belts. There is even a seamstress on hand to help out with the finishing touches. This summer, look for Cheryl Fudge Fashion Camp to make a creative splash in the Malibu Country Mart as well. 1010 Montana Ave., Santa Monica, CA (310) 393-3333; www.cherylfudge.com

PRECIOUS METAL ARTS

THE GALLERY OF FUNCTIONAL ART On any given day at GFA, you may see a hipster couple from Silver Lake registering for their wedding here or a conservative grandmother from Encino trying on a piece of jewelry or observe Annette Bening relaxing in the comforts of a wine cork chair. The customers reflect the eclectic merchandise - something for everyone, especially those that are hard to buy for. Opening the store 22 years ago, Lois Lambert's knack for discovering artists, architects, and craftsmen creating surprising pieces for functional uses has established her as an international authority on the subject of utilitarian art. To meet the needs of her growing roster of artists, she launched the Lois Lambert Gallery which exhibits six themed shows, solo shows or group shows a year usually featuring sculpture, paintings and mixed media. Whether you're looking for a chandelier made by Ted Swiet of wine glasses or old world jewelry of rich stones and leather by Lou Zeldis or maybe just a 'What Would Jesus Wear?' magnet dress-up doll - GFA is a magical place to lose yourself in.

Can't bear to buy a typical engagement ring or give another 'mall-bought' piece of jewelry as a gift? Precious Metal Arts specializes in creating jewelry from the bizarre to the sublime or if you are feeling adventurous, you can make it yourself. They offer workshops ranging from the fundamental aspects of jewelry design and creation to advanced classes in metal-smithing, wax carving and stone setting. Under the guidance and humor of instructor Peter Solomon, a jewelry craftsman for over 25 years, your idea materializes and is honed. Precious Metal Arts also offers open studio time to practice at a professional jeweler's bench as you learn, so you won't have to shell out hundreds of dollars in tools and equipment. It's not only a creative hub for jewelry making but also a great place to find truly unique jewelry for sale by emerging and established jewelry artists. The gallery features more than a dozen local and national jewelry artists, as well as work from their most accomplished students. 2510 Main Street, Suite C Santa Monica, CA 90405 (310) 581-4844 www.preciousmetalarts.com

ARTABOUTTOWN WORDS PETER FRANK

MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART AT THE PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER Las Vegas Studio: Images from the Archives of Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown THRU JUNE 20 In 1972, Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown revolutionized architecture with their book Learning from Las Vegas, an audacious embrace not just of the vernacular, but of the garish, the silly, the kitschy, and the fun. For Venturi and Scott Brown, working off Pop art, camp, and a culture slouching towards the ironic, bad taste was just another taste - one to study, exploit, and take seriously but not to tame. Learning from Las Vegas had its origins in an extended field trip the husbandand-wife architects made to Sin City four years earlier with their Yale University students. “Las Vegas Studio� documents this fateful trip with material from the Venturi Scott Brown Associates archives, some 80-plus photographs, several films, and notations that bring Learning to life and renew the discussion. Indeed, the vibrancy of the show - and its documentation of an earlier, less pretentious Vegas, a town whose only art was its outlandish architecture - seems, if anything, to regard our current embrace of the vernacular for its own sake as smothering. Not that Venturi and Scott Brown were, or are, purists, but they preach a practical, not just ornamental, aesthetic: Pay attention to a structure's message because of its function, not despite. If they learned anything from Las Vegas, it's that the house always wins. For more information, please visit their website at: http://www.moca.org

LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART (LACMA) Arshile Gorky: A Retrospective THRU SEPTEMBER 20 If there is any one key figure in the emergence of American art as a distinct, fully self-sustaining discourse, it is Arshile Gorky. This is somewhat ironic, as Gorky himself evolved through an almost slavish re-working of modern European models. He 72

dug into Cezanne, Picasso, cubism and surrealism like a miner, searching for their formal and subjective essences by re-tracing their steps. But when he got out the other side of his decade-long conceptual apprenticeship, Gorky went on to paint (and draw) some of the most intense, provocative, peculiar and moving paintings anyone has ever produced on these shores. “Arshile Gorky: A Retrospective” includes a rash of these post-surrealist, proto-abstract expressionist masterpieces, as well as a similarly hefty selection of the brilliantly unoriginal paintings and studies that led up to them. They are “brilliant” because, even at their most imitative, they are suffused with a peculiar angst - not the second-hand angst of European expressionism (which didn't interest Gorky), but the real angst of a childhood brutally disrupted by the displacement and genocide visited by the Ottomans on their Armenian population during World War I. Largely self-taught after his emigration, Gorky became an intellectual and aesthetic magnet for his fellow New Yorkers; because of his own experience with privation, he was able to rally them during the depths of the Depression, and his erudition and intellectual hunger inspired their own. Then, in the 1940s, he produced “real” Gorkys, sinuous, feverish, apparitions born equally of paint and dream obviously rooted in but not part of the surrealist thinking that had come wholesale to these shores. A series of misfortunes - and, doubtless, the shadow of a cruel past - led Gorky to suicide in 1948, cutting short a talent in the midst of realizing its full promise. Happily, what legacy it left remains formidable, beautiful, and engagingly mysterious. For more information, please visit their website at: http://www.lacma.org

LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART (LACMA) John Baldessari: Pure Beauty THRU SEPTEMBER 12 Going back nearly a half-century to his salad days, this retrospective looks at all periods in the work of one of America's - and certainly one of LA's - most influential contemporary artists. John Baldessari has been a consistent presence on the southern California scene, emerging as an earnestly abstract painter in San Diego in the early 1960s, only to repudiate his formalism by burning a bunch of his abstractions - as a conceptual gesture - and doing nothing but word, and word-and-image, paintings for the rest of the decade. Since then, Baldessari has minimized first his use of paint on canvas, then his use of words, and has come to rely more or less solely on images appropriated from widely disseminated “popular” sources - movies, advertisements, television shows, Internet sites, those kinds of things. But the images Baldessari downloads, blows up, restructures and overlays with formal interventions (“abstract” devices such as colored shapes, vector lines, etc.) are in no way “classic”; you will be hard-pressed to identify the actors or scenes in any of his photo-constructions. But you will readily recognize the conventions of expression, gesture, costume, and setting that, in the absence of identity or narrative, emerge as defining characteristics, and you will as a result find yourself looking at movies and TV shows differently - more dispassionately, more abstractly. Throughout his career, Baldessari has demonstrated that conceptual art is more than reducing the world down to ideas; it is a process of abstracting the normal into the real.

MUSEUM OF LATIN AMERICAN ART Manchuria: Peripheral Vision — A Felipe Ehrenberg Retrospective THRU AUGUST 15 Mexico may have emerged as a center for contemporary artistic experiment, but it has already produced several generations of cutting-edge artists - since the muralists, that is. As far back as the 1960s there were Mexican conceptualists and performance artists; this exhibition documents the considerable achievement of one such iconoclast, a particularly individualistic but influential one. Felipe Ehrenberg began 74

his career in Europe, specifically in Britain in coordination with the “second wave” of Fluxus artists who maintained that movement's light-hearted subversion in the wake of orthodox conceptual art's more somber and self-important formalism - and in the face of a society racked by upheaval. Fluxus had helped bring about the change in social values, and Ehrenberg, in particular, sought to maintain such change through continuing provocation, and through the socialization of artists themselves. Indeed, after returning to Mexico City in the mid-70s, Ehrenberg was instrumental in founding several artists' groups and collaboratives, some of which concentrated on conceptualist publication and dissemination and some of which went out into the poorer communities (especially after the earthquakes of 1985-6) to engender mural projects and self-help activities. Ehrenberg himself entered mainstream politics, winding up as cultural attaché to Brazil, but also involving himself in cultural as well as political cross-border relationships with the US, especially in response to NAFTA and anti-immigration initiatives. All this and more is documented in “Manchuria: Peripheral Vision,” a heady multimedia retrospective that with over 200 artworks (including a new “portable mural” - actually a “visual score” for performance - realized in collaboration with Cal State Los Angeles grad students) just barely manages to expose all facets of this latter-day Renaissance man to an audience that, for obvious reasons, should know him better.
