This week, you can learn how to play more even while working, join a Utopian marathon, attend the opening show of rug designs by multi-talented designer Elena Manferdini, attend an accessible art fair, and take a trip through historical Los Angeles of the mid-20th century.
This week’s highlights include a discussion about Buckminster Fuller’s still-relevant ideas, an update on restoring the kelp forest off the coast of Palos Verdes, an exhibition on Asian American movements in Los Angeles, a historic tour through Silver Lake’s bohemian past, and a re-imagining of the French animated Sci-fi epic Chronopolis.
Enjoy a puppeteer’s take on “hot urban issues”; see cars painted by Keith Haring, and furniture designed by Rick Owens; join a tribute to director Bette Jane Cohen at a screening of The Spirit in Architecture: John Lautner; and hear Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II, Jane Fonda and others discuss the Dakota Access Pipeline. Plus, more holiday markets.
This week we’ve got events from bold, avant-garde rule-breaking women to classic holiday shows and shopping. Performance art, stimulating discussion, holiday lights on the water, more performance art and one of a kind art you can bring home for the holidays – to keep or gift. Plus some movies of the year you won’t want to miss.
Lots of opportunities to embrace the season with holiday lights, music and shopping, including the annual studio sale by ceramicist Peter Shire; the upcoming Desert X puts large-scale art in the desert; architect Thom Mayne discusses and signs his new book “M”; and Lewis MacAdams gets a big send-off as he steps down as president of FOLAR.
