On view til September, the installation “Cantastoria” explores how contemporary artists communicate histories and cultures using languages. Also on display was the show “FAX” which was an invitational for 100 artists to transmit their fax-based work. My favorite exhibit was a film they had playing titled “Casting Jesus” by Christian Jankowski.
Our first adventure via the new LA Metro transit line from the new Culver City station to the Caii Guo Qiang exhibit at the Geffen Wing of the MOCA.
Our search for rarefied matter took us to a few aerospace graveyards off the beaten path in the San Fernando Valley. Foraging through warehouse racks piled high with dusty old instruments, we wished we had an old-timer with us that knew the stories behind each of these weird treasures.
Quick trip to see some great new art and show a few of our flip-books to a prospective gallery. Success on both points:) More to come soon!
Attended the San Mateo Maker Faire this year with our Los Angeles hackerspace Crash Space. The booth won three blue ribbons, with one of those awarded to our mechanical flip-books. We felt so grateful to be recognized with such a great company of inventors and creatives. Many thanks to everyone who came by and let us share our little wonders!
Here’s a video of some of our favorite moments from the faire.
Spent Friday visiting ArtMRKT 2012 in San Francisco. The galleries made a strong showing and the artists were well represented. We like these art fairs because they allow us to get acquainted with many galleries in one afternoon. We also were very excited to buy some art (a print from EB Harris). Here are some noteworthy highlights:
Exhibition Sculpture Undone, 1955 to 1972
This was the only photo I was able to take before the guards jumped me.
“Lampe – Bouche” (Illuminated Lips)
Even with the rain the turnout was great. Visited some of our favorite artist’s studios. Always impressed with Mitchell Friedman’s black and white monotypes. Maddy Le Mel was showing fantastic work titled “Suspended States”. And Sabine Pearlman surprised us with her new postcard showcasing our portrait on the front!
