Friday, April 20 from 7 to 10 PM at 411 Isabel Street, 90065.

Roberts and Tilton host a panel this Saturday that includes Katie Grinnan, Farrah Karapetian, Sohrab Mohebbi and Alexandro Segade. Surrounding you at the event will be Farrah’s current exhibition, Representation³. I see that this show is co-curated by Justin Gilanyi. Congratulations all around!
“chapel around this feeble heart, buried in the wilderness, it stands mute testimony to time, to space, to cold; misfit verses, rhymeless meanings; clothed in absence… poetry happens, when time melts and conscious hovers, kissing books in the dark”

(She was wearing yellow that day, gauzy and not too gold, but sheer enough to see her heart pulsing vibrant blood down into her bare feet. Or was she wearing a nude-colored slip? She was a force of nature, how she clamped the empty spoon, looked at him with such diffident green eyes. Was this love? And if it was, then why had he failed the patient by suggesting, of all things, a halogen lamp in front of a plate-glass window? Wasn’t love supposed to be a curative? Wasn’t it supposed to be an end to all war, a chief hope? The chief hope? The heart of the world must keep beating or else we are all doomed. He kicked a stone down the alley. Saw her form from a distance, casting a shadow onto the undisturbed concrete. Did he need to change the style of facial hair? Grow a mustache?

Work by David Korty, Calvin Marcus, Davida Nemeroff and Mark A. Rodriguez. (Yes, I am still talking about the show next week at Elephant, thank you.)
Mat Gleason is back in the business, this time on Chung King Road at the new Coagula Curatorial, opening its doors this Saturday, April 21 with a solo show by Tim Youd, loosely inspired by Henry Miller (previous bodies of work include works related to Celine and Philip Roth) The show has a weird resonance with the Judith Bernstein show in the same space a year ago when it was the Box.
Speaking of which stellar exhibition space, Leigh Ledare’s show at the new Box location closes this weekend. GO. 805 Traction Avenue, 90013.

As a final treat I offer you Long Story Short, the Tumblr image blog of Gilda Davidian. Truly cool. yul c. http://gildadavidian.tumblr.com/

Have fun playing this weekend, and please remember to keep your hands inside the car at all times. It’s a roller coaster in the big world.
