Edith’s installation, Transversal Garment Manifestation No. 1 at Windward School was on view for a fruit fly’s lifespan. Like her ongoing installation, Long Beach Garment Manifestation at The Collaborative, it was amazing. I was lucky enough to attend the opening while I was in El Lay, here’s a short Flickr tour of an [...]
Just when I thought I had exhausted the total supply of severed heads in LA museums, LACMA shines through. I was double lucky (or bi-winning, as we say these days) on this find, as I arrived at LACMA just after they rotated the Raymond and Frances Bushell Collection of netsuke in the Japanese [...]
Nilbog, The world’s only horror movie soundtrack cover band will be gracing the stage at Cinefamily tomorrow, March 29 @ 8pm, followed by The Visitor, a terrible, terrible, beautiful, magical film that features John Huston, Glenn Ford, Shelley Winters, and Lance Henriksen.

Woo!!Woo!!”, including a much anticipated visit to Edith Abeyta’s ongoing installation, Long Beach Garment Manifestation, at The Collaborative in Long Beach. It’s massive, architectural an an awe inspiring piece of installation art. The image above is a tease, [...]
Yoshimura Masunobu, a founder of the Neo-Dada Organizers, has died. I do not know if he is a victim of the earthquake or if he has simply passed away. He was a key figure in the Anti-Art movement and took part in the seminal Yomiuri Independent Exhibitions that shaped avant garde art in [...]
Sure, you could just browse my Flickr set for all the best bits and lie to your friends that you saw the show, but really? You’ve got the time. LACMA’s fashion collection is one of LA’s most hidden gems and I’m hoping that the new addition of space at LACMA creates more opportunities [...]
