Hey - I posted this in context at the other end of the post then at the last minute decided it needed to be foregrounded. Done. Now on to the possibly not interesting to you musical interlude.....

Okay, I can’t find Anita O’Day and a few others but you get the idea. You may take this jazz sequence however you want to read it, or listen to it rather. I just love the song, and I note that Tunisia – where things seem to be starting lately – is in the north end of Africa. And it was from Africa that were brought the people who created and planted jazz music in America.

I do not know much about this exhibition or about this new space downtown. Amy Thoner made this recommendation to me. I pay attention to everything Amy suggests to me. I have seen and admired the work of Abel Gutierrez and have met Tomas Seidita. I look forward to seeing the work of these people and to meeting them on March 11. Um, let’s recap: Amy Thoner of Las Cienegas recommends this, I recommend this – do you need more reasons to place it on your calendar?

Quote from the press release:

“From today,” declared Paul Delaroche, “painting is dead.” That was more than a hundred and fifty years ago, and though the pronouncement has hardly stemmed the flow of painter’s pouring out of arts academies the world over, it is a statement that has nevertheless continually persisted in asserting its own relevance since first being uttered in 1839. Thus, the painter of today is presented with a conundrum: In a world in which painting as a critical form has long since come to be viewed as passé, why is it that some artists choose to paint?

Curators Ryan McGuffin and Tomas Mickiewicz Seidita have determined to investigate this very question with their group exhibition  Back to the Future, a collection of established and up-and-coming Los Angeles based painters aggressively exploring painting as a practice with a foundation both conceptual and formal. Bringing together a varied group of artists from across the greater Los Angeles area and representing multiple arts programs throughout the city, the show seeks to create a cohesive forum for new dialogue between up-and-coming contemporary painters.
Back To the Future.
