ONGOING LOS ANGELES AREA EVENTS:
Michael Whiting : Sculptures
Cabana Home, in collaboration with Edward Cella Art + Architecture, presents a solo exhibition of new steel sculptures by Southern California artist Michael Whiting. Constructed from welded steel and coated with bright automotive enamels, Whiting creates playful works inspired by the forms and imagery of early video gaming and computer graphics. Recognizing the extreme sparseness of forms inherent to the constraints of pixel-based technologies Whiting states, “In my visual experience Pac-man came before Donald Judd or Carl Andre. For me, Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie will always be an homage to Pac-man. My current work explores the visual connection between minimalism and early video games.”
November 15, through January 9, 2010
Monday through Saturday, 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
First Exhibition “Venice from then to now”
Yann Perreau is pleased to announce the opening of “Here is Elsewhere” gallery as part of “Design Loves Art” at Pacific Design Center, Los Angeles. “Here is Elsewhere” is a project space dedicated to exploring the hidden history that links artists from “Here” -So Cal- with artists from “Elsewhere”.
“Venice artists from then to now”, the first exhibition at the gallery, will open on November 18th at 5 pm. This group show will explore Venice Beach’s rich and radical art scene, from the 1960’s until now. When the Ferus Gallery opened, Venice was an affordable paradise for a community of artists, dealers, homeless, rock stars and Beat poets. This is the place where key figures of the Southern California art scene met to create their most experimental works. “I wouldn’t live anywhere else” explains Larry Bell who returned to his original studio on Pacific Avenue recently after years in Tao, New Mexico. Forty years after its pioneer time, Venice is now often seen as passé or cliché. It would have become gentrified, some kind of a touristic resort. It would have lost its soul.
Opening Reception on November 18th 2010. 5 – 8:30 pm
