Is “Art & Commerce” really a matter of who you know? …in short: yes! …but we can still have fun with that…its not ultimately why artists develop and produce work.

Art-in-the-Street: Represent this? is a series of “Pop-up” installations and exhibits @ (5) separate locations for (60) minutes each: the program is scheduled to go live between 10AM-6PM on Thursday, August 04, 2016.

With Los Angeles recently championed as the Creative Capitol of the world, the projects seek to address the myriad of barriers and lack of programming local artists confront by some of the city’s most celebrated institutions [private and public].

A collaboration and survey of how artists can create an alternative platform for dialogue, exchange ideas and aesthetic interests, exhibit work in public spaces; and promote civic engagement…this is what ART-IN-THE-STREET is all about.

Come join us at the following locations Thursday, August 04, 2016:

10–11 Gagosian Gallery, 456 N Camden Dr, Beverly Hills
12–1 Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles
2–3 LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles
5–6 MOCA/ BROAD, 250 & 221 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles

“MAIDEN LA is a county-wide network of ‘happenings’ that will take place during the month of August 2016. The focus is to highlight Los Angeles as a vastly extensive and vibrant community, connecting these happenings throughout the region.

Coinciding with two LA biennials, the Hammer Museum’s Made in LA show and Current:LA Water, MAIDEN LA–a playful anagram and homophone of ‘Made in LA’–is a call to assemble and connect any and all Los Angeles artists, curators, performers, collectives, etc., to host open studios, group shows, or self-initiated projects in both traditional and unconventional spaces.

Artists, organizers, and self-started spaces are encouraged to host a project anytime during the month of August, and to submit these details for inclusion in an online directory, smart phone app and interactive map. There will also be a limited edition fold-out map that will act as a physical guide to the network.”

“CONFIDENTIAL
FLASH MOB ART SHOW for Artists of Color (AOC)
THIS SUNDAY @ THE HAMMER MUSEUM

Dear Artists of Color (AOC),

We are staging an AOC FLASH MOB ART SHOW (peaceful guerilla style) this Sunday afternoon at the Hammer Museum, and request your participation.

The Made in LA Biennial is closing next week. In response to the ongoing underrepresentation of artists of color (AOC), Autonomie Projects is taking action by staging interventions at mainstream art institutions. The first of these interventions is the aforementioned AOC FLASH MOB ART SHOW that will occur this Sunday afternoon in the Hammer Museum courtyard at, 3:00pm, August 28, 2016.

We ask that you bring your best small artwork that you’ve created. The work must be hidden from plain view until we begin our performance. The artwork must be small enough to hide inside a jacket, sweater or purse, as backpacks are not allowed in the museum. The cue to pull out your artwork is the sound of a clave playing a Cuban rhythm.

We will then pull out our artwork, and lift the work high above our heads as we walk loosely around the courtyard for as long as we can. When asked to leave, we will do so compliantly. The more artists who participate the better the impact! The organizers are artists, Chelle Barbour (Director of Autonomie Projects) and Lili Bernard (Founder of BAILA). The planning of this and other performances are confidential. More details will follow.

Please do not publicize.

If the institution will not come to us, we will take our art to the institution!
Art Intervention Location:
Hammer Museum
10899 Wilshire Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90024
Time: 3:00pm. We will meet outside the museum on Wilshire Blvd.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

ANNOUNCING MAIDEN LA, a county­wide network of LA­based ‘happenings’ taking place throughout the month of August 2016.

Commencing August 1, 2016, Maiden LA, in its very first iteration, will connect over 130 artists, collectives and organizations, highlighting Los Angeles as a vastly extensive and vibrant community. The incredibly diverse event list ranges from web­based projects and performances to open studios, exhibitions, and public installations, as far reaching as the Antelope Valley and San Pedro. Some artists have opened up their private residences while others have taken to the streets or parks. All events submitted by July 15th are included on a printed map and downloadable PDF, while all events submitted through July 31st will continue to be listed on the web­based directory and calendar. You can download the PDF here or visit the Maiden LA website,which offers a user­friendly and comprehensive event map and calendar. The i n f o r m a t i o n w i l l a l s o b e a v a i l a b l e o n C u r a t e L A ‘ s w e b ­ b a s e d d i r e c t o r y a n d d o w n l o a d a b l e a p p .

Maiden LA was created and organized by two Los Angeles­based artists, Molly Schulman and Salomeh Grace. Using the Hammer Museum’s biennial as a jumping off point, Maiden LA (a playful anagram and homophone of ‘Made in LA’) stemmed from a desire to connect LA based artists, organizations and their respective communities, while bringing attention to the number of artist run initiatives throughout the city. The collaborative duo was interested in the concept of a Los Angeles survey as being one that considered the city as a platform for generative discourse and exchange, and one that would encourage unrealized projects to take form.

Support for Maiden LA is provided by C ommon Field, a national network of experimental and non­commercial contemporary art spaces and projects. Maiden LA would like to thank all participants for contributing a range of compelling projects. A special thanks goes to C ommon F i e l d , V e l a s l a v a s a y P a n o r a m a , a n d C u r a t e L A f o r t h e i r v a l u e d s u p p o r t .

the history of Surrealist fistfights, in the Artist Lab Residency at 18th Street Arts Center. Over the summer of 2016, Lutker will develop and workshop elements of a live performance based on the events of July 2, 1925, when a group of Surrealist artists protested a banquet at the Closerie des Lilas in Paris. Historical figures at the heart of the story include Madame Rachilde, a proto-feminist novelist turned isolationist; Michel Leiris, a Surrealist who ends up in the hospital at the end of the evening; and the banquet’s honoree, the Symbolist poet Saint-Pol-Roux. Lutker will preview parts of her play-in-development and related live material in the Artist Lab, which will function as a stage or platform for performance and video narratives activated by both performers and sculptural objects. The historical investigation at the heart of Lutker’s work will be represented with an accumulation of research objects and inspirations.

Antonakis

There is no place like LA

August 2016, daily

On the 1st of August and for the whole month, Athens/Greece based visual artist Antonakis will be sharing “his own private LA” in collaboration with MAIDEN LA. For this, a tumblr page (http://thereisnoplacelikela.tumblr.com) has been set up, where the artist will be posting daily a memory/vision of Los Angeles, photographic material from his trips to his favourite city. This is a very personal journal on nostalgia. A year ago the artist was denied entrance to the US and may not be able to visit Los Angeles again.

/ August 27, 2016 – Closing presents her new installation “Time Dilation Geometry”

with Live sonic performances by Pod Blotz and Cube. The installation explores the relationship between a tangible/physical space and a digital/synthetic space. The ideas behind the installation are about light and sound dissension, video interferences, mirrored sculptural interactivity and hypnotic rotation within a blacked out room. This new body of work is inspired by the book, “Order in Space” as it references multi- dimensional geometric objects and varied proportions. This program has been made possible by a grant from the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.

Opening: August 13, 7pm- 10pm / Exhibition: Aug 1- 31

“Support Structures is a manual for what bears, sustains, props, and holds up. It is a manual for those things that encourage, give comfort, approval, and solace; that care for and provide consolation and the necessities of life. It is a manual for that which assists corroborates, advocates, articulates, substantiates, champions, and endorses; for what stands behind, underpins, frames, presents, maintains, and strengthens. Support Structures is a manual for those things that give, in short, support. While the work of supporting might traditionally appear as subsequent, unessential, and lacking value in itself, this manual is an attempt to restore attention to one of the neglected, yet crucial modes through which we apprehend and shape the world.” Artists: Anna Tanner, Emmett Walsh, Molly Schulman, Patricia Valencia, Salomeh Grace, Sarana Myers.

DAC Gallery Summer Group Exhibition

Exhibition: July 16 – September 1, 2016 // Hours: Monday – Friday, 11am – 3:30 pm or by appointment // Opening Reception: July 16 6-9 PM

Hailing from a variety of new media backgrounds, and employing a myriad of differing conceptual and aesthetic strategies, this group of artists and their respective works speak to each other through their attention to the contingent relationships between human cognition and the precariousness of organic and artificial environments. Implicitly or explicitly, each artist’s practice touches upon an underlying and timeless sense of ambivalence in regards to their psychic and spatial relationships to the materiality of the world, negotiating an enduring yet seemingly urgent sense of estrangement between the spheres of order we construct and those that are beyond our control.

Equitable Vitrines

Equilibre Trunk by Klaus Weber

May 26–September 30, 2016, 24/7

Equitable Vitrines presents Equilibre Trunk, a new artwork by Berlin-based artist Klaus Weber. Equilibre Trunk grew out of Weber’s fascination with a practice traditionally performed in Western societies, whereby facial impressions of recently deceased persons are made in plaster. Prior to the invention of photography, the act of producing casts or “masks” from these molds was undoubtedly the most accurate way of preserving a particular person’s visage for viewing long after their death. Weber’s masks are camouflaged within the lobby’s surroundings, shrouded in aluminum and glass. The thousands of people who circulate through Equitable’s lobby will, consciously and not, reflect the masks—projecting their own particular plight through flesh in time.

Ezequiel Olvera and Lino Martinez

Lino Martinez & Ezequiel Olvera: Cactus Defragment at the Master Printmaker’s Casa

August 13 & 20 | 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

This two-day event comprises of a performative work by 734 E 42nd South Central, linomartinezeditions.com/,

Ezequiel Olvera at the studio/residence of Master Printmaker Lino Martinez. This event explores the mixing between two generations of artists and the cross-pollination of printmaking and computer desktop based artwork. The performance piece Cactus Defragment involves transforming a Pilosocereus Cactus into a desktop computer through inserting and attaching different electronic accessories to and around the fleshy cactus exterior tissue. Through this process, Ezequiel takes a common plant found around Los Angelino homes, specifically in the backyard of Lino Martinez, and uses the object as a method of ‘defragmenting’ how we relate to nature in a digital context. This performance piece will take place in the back of Lino’s residency where his printmaking studio is located. During this two-day event, MAIDEN LA participants can also explore and view his prints which delve into questioning the medium of printmaking as well as his identity as a Los Angelino printmaker.On Sunday, August 20 the open studio and performance piece will take place in Lino’s backyard amidst a thriving South Central party featuring cervezas, a taquero and music.

Los Angeles Times considers the effects of cell phone technology on our digital media landscape and the Los Angeles landscape. The widespread availability of cell phone technology has created a decrease in human face-to-face interaction, while simultaneously, due to the high velocity of the circulation of images, an increase of clichés and templates of images. Cell phone towers have dotted the Los Angeles landscape as one of the more recent developments of industrialization; likewise cell phone ringers have become as ubiquitous as the sound of an automobile, an airplane, or a train, expanding the city’s aural landscape.

“Building Sculptures” by Elena Manferdini

Opening: August 18th, 6 pm to 8 p.m. / August 19th through September 2nd / Tues-Fri 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Building Sculptures is the second part of the Building Portraits show that took place at Industry Gallery at the beginning of the year. Both titles allude to two distinct disciplines, the field of architecture-building- and the one of fine art-portraits/sculptures. This body of work tries to claim a territory where these two attitudes find a common ground. In particular Building Sculptures takes 10 of the drawings of Building Portraits and makes them three dimensional. The models tests ideas of shape vs form, ground vs figure, patterns vs coloration, orientation vs posture.

LACE Tim Youd: Overnight at LACE

Exhibition dates: June 30 – August 15, 2016 / Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 12 – 6PM

Tim Youd brings his 100 Novels Project to LACE with 6522
the retyping of two John Rechy novels. The 100 Novels Hollywood Project is an extended and idiosyncratic literary Boulevard, Los pilgrimage. Youd journeys across the world retyping Angeles, CA entire novels in locations germane to each story. In 90028
these charged locations, he uses the original make and
model of the typewriter employed by the book’s author.
During his multi-week performances, Youd retypes
each novel onto a single sheet of paper backed by a
second sheet. He runs the doubled paper through the
typewriter repeatedly, until every word of the novel has
been retyped. Upon completion the two pages – a
positive and a negative image – are mounted as a
diptych, representing two pages of a book.

LACE Warren Neidich: The Palinopsic Field

Exhibition dates: June 15 – August 14, 2016 / Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 12 – 6PM

LACE presents Warren Neidich: The Palinopsic Field, 6522
an exhibition that revisits the Second Red Scare and Hollywood
the Lavender Scare, events following World War II in Boulevard, Los which Joseph McCarthy’s House Un-American Angeles, CA Activities Committee directed a witch hunt against many 90028
artists and writers suspected of having affiliations with
the Communist Party, and many homosexuals who
were deemed “sexually perverse.” Using painting, neon
sculpture and installation, the project resurfaces this
history and gives us a fresh outlook through which to
view and understand this moment. Today, as we find
ourselves amidst an election cycle one cannot help but
draw connections between these events and the
trending right wing attacks on immigrants, people of
color, and the LGBT community today.

LACE Jibade-Khalil Huffman: Verse Chorus Verse

Exhibition dates: June 30 – August 14, 2016 / Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 12 – 6PM

Los Angeles based artist Jibade-Khalil Huffman 6522
presents a newly commissioned multimedia installation Hollywood
that explores the subject of spectatorship, systems of Boulevard, Los display and narrative making. Verse Chorus Verse is Angeles, CA comprised of a suite of formally connected works 90028 concerned with the question of perception by exposing
and foregrounding systems of image making and
storytelling. Here, the projector serves as a stand-in for
the act of uncovering certain narratives. Huffman layers
and complicates methods of display in order to create a
space that favors no one part, where hierarchies are
leveled, and the process of storytelling bears equal
weight to the story told. Verse Chorus Verse considers
the way in which form and mechanisms of display
construct their own narratives, and shape how and what
we collectively consume as the only story.

LACE Miha Strukelj: Here Somewhere

Exhibition dates: June 30 – August 14, 2016 / Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 12 – 6PM

Here Somewhere involves a spatial drawing installation 6522
that relies on real and fictitious views of urban Hollywood architectural structures to develop a new cityscape, Boulevard, Los questioning how one perceives urban landscapes and Angeles, CA their landmarks. By abstracting, disrupting, transforming 90028
and fragmenting real information from the source
photographs, the original locations are obscured, and
along with added fictitious elements, become part of the
completed image. In this process a special paradox
arises: abstraction that serves to eliminate the borders
between the real and the fictive, the gap between
memory and imagination, and also functions a means
to establish logical relations between different parts and
elements of urban landscape. The exhibition takes into
account visual perception, the inability of the viewer to
instantly embrace a plethora of information, and on the
fact one’s perspective is predisposed by experience.

Nada, nothing, nata. The high desert Antelope Valley 90th East and region of Los Angeles is often considered to be a space Avenue P,

Antelope Valley

where nothing happens–a wasteland void. “Deserting the Desert” is an unconventional exhibition which features expansive land and sky, phone lines, a sign, a gate, and a dirt road to nowhere. This month long experience intends to reveal the difference that emerges from potential, and to prompt the question of the counter-Anthropocene. Nothing will happen here unless something happens to question the observation and meaning of desert as void, and desert as deserted.

MARKET in Silver Lake is pleased to exhibit a collection of recent sculptures, paintings and works on paper by the downtown Los Angeles artist Barney O’Brien. Barney assembles, paints and transforms everyday discarded materials from the streets of LA into powerful vessels of geometry, self-reflection and expressive awareness.

By working inside/out with his materials, O’Brien is able to simultaneously challenge the sensibilities of the viewer and breathe new meaning into otherwise disposable leftover.

I’m Over Here Now

June 25 – August 14, 2016

Over the years the name Baron Von Fancy has become 3301 W West Adams ochiprojects.com synonymous with a stylized lettering and a clever sense Washington
of humor. Interested in activating relationships between Blvd, Los
words, objects and places Von Fancy explores the Angeles, CA

nature of communication by expressing his short and 90018 declarative statements via a recognizable font
reminiscent of vintage ad signage. Often bordering on
cliché and always witty, Von Fancy invites viewers to re-evaluate their understanding of any given context, or

any given phrase. New Yorkers have come to know him through his billboards, which he continuously posts around the city, often punning on a given place or situation. “Run Away With Me” was positioned at mile 13 during the New York Marathon and “Never Not Working” reminded onlookers of the daily hustle in the city that never sleeps. Von Fancy extends the same sense of playful sensibility with words to objects. For example, he emblazoned “Sew Fancy” on a sewing kit, “A Better Place is Hard to Find” on a doormat, and “The Thirst is Real” on a water bottle. Like any good pun the associations are obvious, and yet Von Fancy still manages to make the viewer feel like he is part of an inside joke.

Peephole Cinema

Ghost Algebra and 24/7 Inconsolable Objects

2016—Tucked in an alley off Chung King Road, the Peephole Cinema, a 24/7 public screening site, offers hidden visual pleasures for those wandering the Chinatown arts district of Los Angeles. The Peephole Cinema’s new program of films, opening June 17, 2016, is curated by Laurie O’Brien and features experimental shorts by Automata’s co-founders: Janie Geiser and Susan Simpson. Both artists are known for their work in experimental puppet performance and film. In Geiser’s Ghost Algebra, a solitary figure navigates a landscape of constructed nature and broken bones, peering through a decaying aperture that reveals a battlefield of nervous dreams. Geiser employs found and natural objects, rephotographed video, medical illustrations, and other original meaning of the word “algebra”: the reunion of broken parts. Simpson’s Inconsolable Objects is a short animated film exploring states of agitation and unrest. Drawing on various source material, particularly comic book action sequences the film creates an abstracted experience of unease.

PØST Exhibition: a one-person show by Gerald

Giamportone

August 20 – September 24, 2016 / Wednesday – Saturday, 12 pm – 6 pm and by appointment

Reception: Saturday, September 10, 7 – 9 pm

PØST is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Gerald Giamportone. In Gerald Giamportone’s work for the past ten years, he has explored the idea of altered perception and changed identity. His interest has led him to focus on the rose as well as other natural materials. Despite the well-known visual and metaphorical meanings attributed to the rose, Giamportone has created new identities for the rose by disintegrating its elements from the rose itself — the stems, leaves, petals and thorns—then reintegrating them into filled tables, vitrines and metal floor sculptures. In his most recent work, entitled “Releases,” Giamportone uses the entire rose to create a changed identity by leaving just an imprint of the rose on sheets of mylar or paper. He dips the rose in paint and drops it from 12 feet in the air, resulting in a chance image that may reflect all or only parts of the rose. Some of the images retain the outline of the rose, but others become more reductive. The works created by repeated rose- drops on the same surface appear even more abstract, leaving the viewer wondering about the identity of the image. In the past, Giamportone used talc, the softest mineral, in a similar way by powdering a plane of neoprene from above to create fractals that emulate sculpture but in a flat form. Giamportone was featured in a seven-year survey of his work at the John Hansard Gallery in Southampton, England. He has shown locally at Ace, BlumHelman and Angles among other galleries. Giamportone is a past recipient of a Pollock Krasner Foundation grant and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship (Painting).

Tabloids Beyond

August 13th to August 19th Los Angeles is divided: some are celebrities, and the online everyverything.com rest are not. The daily interactions that take place

between these two classes create a distinct mental geography that is of great interest for non-celebrities; a map not invested in historic political events or natural disasters, but rather one at the intersection of the banal and the newsworthy. Tabloids Beyond treats the rest of the country as the rest of the country treats Los Angeles; by documenting celebrity mishaps on a cross- country road trip – in places as diverse as Provo, Utah and Kansas City, Missouri – Tabloids Beyond redistributes celebrity attention more evenly across the states.

Color is an essential part in creating art, a powerful means of communication to create an emotional response between the artist and viewer. Every artist has a personal way of using color, using it to express their intuitive viewpoint of life. In this way, it is easy to see that color may provide a key about the artist themselves. It is a link to the clues of the soul of the artist, the colors within each spirit.

Sunland-Tujunga Open Studios: Matousek Glassworks (Shelley and Steve Matousek)

Sunland-Tujunga Open Studios

August 20th and 21st, 2016 10 AM to 6 PM, both days

Shelley and Steve Matousek work with glass. Shelley fuses glass and is always experimenting, pushing the art. Many of her projects use powder glass to create images on glass. Shelley’s love of nature shows up in many of her pieces, such as using a leaf to create a glass leaf design in a clear glass plate.

Steve’s focus is on creating blown glass art. He occasionally creates fused glass art pieces emphasizing the third dimension. Recently this husband/wife team began to collaborate between fused glass and blown glass. Steve’s fascination with glass started at a young age, and when Shelley started looking for a way to create more distinctive glass beads for her basket and gourd art, the couple began their glass artist journey by flame working glass beads. One thing led to another and. . . well come by and see our studio.

Guest can try their hand at creating a small piece of glass jewelry at 1pm and 4pm both days. Limited to 6 people and a $3.00 charge to cover the cost.

Sunland-Tujunga Open Studios: Melissa Reischman

Sunland-Tujunga Open Studios

August 20 and 21 11am- 5pm

My work explores psychological landscapes and persistent thoughts that have been left unspoken. Working with the dichotomy of light and darkness I explore the dynamics of belonging and alienation, joy and grief, attachment and separation. These allegorical images are informed by personal mythologies, memories and the natural world. Moving between earth and atmosphere, mass and space, my work blurs the line between abstraction and landscape. Starting with a few marks, a simple composition and a light source, the drawings and paintings guide me to where they want to go. BIO: Melissa Reischman has exhibited at Gallery 825, Los Angeles, CA, The Los Angeles Municipal Gallery at Barnsdall, Los Angeles, CA; ; The Brand Library, Glendale, CA; McGroarty Arts Center, Tujunga, CA; Available Light Gallery, Burbank, CA; SPARC Gallery, Venice, CA; Venice Art Walk, Venice, CA.

Mercury:New Medievalism August 1-August 7, 2016, 11:00-4:00 pm

Painter Susan Lizotte both mines and mimics history to 1950 South Downtown LA susanlizotte.com/ construct a poignant and eccentric allegory for the Santa Fe #206, Arts District
present day. She marries a haute-naif aesthetic of thick Los Angeles

lines, blocky color, proto-Cubist mannerism, and collapsed perspective with a visual lexicon of knights errants and dogged explorers, sea monsters and tall ships, architectural ruins and sketchy outlines of uncharted territories. All of which serves to reconstruct an alternative narrative of the New World and certain rather salacious and cynical, yet consistently under- reported, consequences of its “discovery” for the Old World — and how those forces and effects continue to shape the world today.

Varola gallery is pleased to present “Morphic Fields”, a monumental installation of eight bronze sculptures by Los Angeles-based artist Anthony James. James’ initial inspiration for creating “Morphic Fields” was Robert Rauschenberg’s cardboard box series (1971-72). Like Rauschenberg, James started collecting discarded cardboard boxes as found objects that would later become subjects for investigation and invention. While experimenting in a bronze foundry for the first time in Munich in 2013, James became fascinated with the process of transforming cardboard waste as he witnessed the fragility of cardboard turn into ash and then into bronze, which for the artist represented moments of transcendence, death, rebirth and the never-ending cycle of life.
