The Torrance Art Museum opens “Telephone” on May 28. Too many are the artists to list, or so I tell myself. Then I see some of the names and I am compelled to cut and paste….. hold your breath:

Eric Yahnker, Ginny Cook, Chris Peters, Julie Orser, Vincent Ramos, Elana Mann, Adam Overton, Margaret Wappler, Andrew Choate, Jeanne Hoel, Madison Brookshire, Alexandra Cuesta, Ben Rodkin, Vera Brunner-Sung, Victor Hu, Tanya Rubbak, William Ransom, Oona Gardner, Christian Tedeschi, Julie Schustack, Thomas Muller, Margaret Griffith, Jamison Carter, Phung Huynh, David Yamamoto, Julia Paull, Shelby Roberts, Betsy Seder, Daniel Ingroff, Christine Frerichs, Asher Hartman, Haruko Tanaka, Patrick Strand, Marisa Sayler, James E Anderson, Ariane Vielmetter, Gregory Michael Hernandez , Melissa Manfull, Alexander Kroll, and Renee Petropoulos.

Get on the 110 or the 405 or the 91 (the Richard Nixon Freeway of olde) and head to Torrance. Do not whine about distance. If you can drive to the west side (or the east side) to see shows then you can certainly drive to the South Bay. Cheers.

Foolish me missed that Mark Hagen is having a show at China Art Objects. So cool! Here’s some text from iD / iSpy about Hagen’s participation in California Dreamin’ a recent international exhibition.

Artist Curated Projects are having a flat file sale. A kind of late spring cleaning, if you will. May 29 from 2 to 8 pm at 5152 La Vista Court, LA 90004.

Have I forgotten to remind you to see “The Rose Colored Room” at Overduin and Kite? If only I had images, I tell myself. Did any of you see architect Annie Chu’s reconstruction of Rudolph Schindler’s life guard shack at MOCA a few years ago? Marc Camille Chaimowicz creates a wooden structure with equally fascinating details and coming from an entirely other part of the universe. Possibly informed by Schindler and others, certainly, but all Chaimowicz’ and really nice to see.

Failing images of my own or from Overduin and Kite, I shall get out my image hoover and scoop up what I can find online for the artists concerned.

Without a doubt you should see this show, it closes on June 11. Hurry anyway or you’ll forget!

Um, I won’t be able to find any images that represent the work provided by Dianna Molzan. She has corseted the columns in O and K’s east room. This is completely hot. Plus it makes me think new things about Molzan’s other work. Deception, drawing attention to support and structure – there’s an Alice in Wonderland aspect to this work, too. I also hadn’t thought of her work as sexy, now I have to go back and look again.

Oh dear, I gotta go. Concert. John Adams et al at Disney Hall. Eek.

Probably won’t get much more complete – we leave tomorrow for the Midwest and the amazement of family, Yay.

Back soon, promise.

(Sorry Lisa Lapinski – couldn’t grab any images in time…..)
