Oh my friends, it’s a very good night! We’ve had rain to clear the sky and there’s a weekend full of amazing things ahead of us. Who can tell what may happen?
My own hope this weekend is to visit the shows in Chinatown that I mentioned earlier in the week as well as some elsewhere that I’ve so far missed. Then David and I head east to Riverside and the new Culver Center for the Arts. Details as we move along.
Eamon Ore-Giron “Road to Ruins” at Steve Turner. New paintings inspired by record cover art the artist found while visiting Lima, Peru. A local band “Los Shapis” used (appropriated?) the graphics from the famous Ramones record. Closing this weekend so hurry.
Also closing, also at Turner, is Ana Rodriguez “Sweet Toxicity.” I’m not familiar with Rodriguez’ work – I did watch and listen to a short biographical video on Turner’s site. These images of the installation make me want more.
Just around the corner from Turner, Daniel Weinberg is showing new sculptures by Michelle Segre.
Aha! yet another show (two in fact) that you may miss if you don’t hit the street this weekend:
Carlee Fernandez “World According to Xavier” at Acme. (Head back toward Wilshire from Weinberg, turn left before you hit the parking lot and walk down a narrow corridor to Acme’s back door – or continue to Wilshire and enter the front door. Either way, get there.) Certainly you read Christopher Knight’s epiphanic review in the Times of Fernandez’s show? You haven’t? Well click here and do yourself a favor.
Also Sasha Pierce “Shades of Time.”
While you’re here, although the show is up for another week, do stop in to see Richard Aldrich “Slide Paintings” at Marc Foxx.
