MADE IN L.A. 2012

Representing Emerging and Under-represented Artists in LA
Barnsdall Art Park – Los Angeles, CA
6/3 thru 11/2/12

The Hammer Museum presents Made in L.A., the first in an ongoing series of exhibitions focused on artwork created in the Los Angeles region. Made in L.A. 2012, organized by the Hammer Museum in collaboration with LA><ART, will be presented at the Hammer Museum, LA><ART and the L.A. Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park from June 3 – September 2, 2012. Building upon the tradition of Hammer Invitational exhibitions, Made in L.A. 2012 will feature roughly 60 artists with an emphasis on emerging and under-recognized artists. The Hammer is also pleased to announce that Wells Fargo has come on board as Made in L.A 2012’s Presenting Sponsor, an important and substantial commitment to this inaugural citywide event.

Made in L.A. 2012 is organized by a team of curators from both institutions including Hammer Senior Curator Anne Ellegood, Hammer Curator Ali Subotnick, LA><ART Director Lauri Firstenberg, LA><ART Associate Director and Senior Curator Cesar Garcia, and LA><ART Curator-at-large Malik Gaines. The exhibition will debut new installations, videos, films, sculptures, performances, and paintings commissioned specifically for the exhibition and will offer a snapshot of the current trends and practices coming out of Los Angeles, one of the most active and energetic art communities in the world.

Made in L.A. 2012 will also include the Venice Beach Biennial, from July 13 – 15, 2012, made possible through the generous support of the Teiger Foundation. For this unconventional and slightly unpredictable project directed by Ali Subotnick, the Venice Beach boardwalk will become a readymade exhibition space inspired by the Arsenale at the “real” Venice Biennale. Over the course of the weekend, 40 to 50 artists will collaborate with boardwalk artists, creating new bodies of work, displaying site specific sculptures and/or installations, and presenting performances along the boardwalk.

TWIXT sc. 83

FIFTY24SF Gallery, in association with Upper Playground and American Zoetrope, are pleased to announce TWIXT sc. 83, an exhibition and installation coinciding with legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola’s newest feature film, Twixt. The exhibition opens January 13, 2012 with a public reception at 7PM.
Over his past three films, Francis Ford Coppola, famed director of The Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now, has set-out to create self-written, self-financed, self-produced, and self-distributed films with his own intimate crew. Developed through personal experiences, a love of American Gothic, Edgar Allan Poe, and Coppola’s own trials as a horror genre author, Twixt is the story of B-list author Hall Baltimore’s process of writing his new mystery while researching an old murder case in a remote Northern California town. While Baltimore (played by Val Kilmer) is seemingly rewriting history with the help of the an eccentric town sheriff, he finds himself embedded in his most personal, demanding story he has ever written. Filmed around Northern California with locals as actors, as well as sets built on Coppola’s own property in Rutherford, Twixt examines the process of storytelling as it applies to personal experience, artistic influences, and the classic American genres that have become staples of modern cinema.
Working within their own self-financed restraints and freedoms, the team behind Twixt had the unique experience of researching and building sets in and around Coppola’s home in Northern California. Many of the sets were built in Coppola’s backyard, while some required the small town backdrops of Northern Napa and Lake counties. In keeping with the original spirit of American horror, some scenes were created with intentional kitsch, while some dream sequence were shot with highly-detailed, ornate sets and original post-production work.
For TWIXT sc. 83, members of Twixt’s tiny tiny Art Dept, (Jimmy DiMarcellis, David Hopp, and John Paul Goorjian) will be rebuilding the set of the film’s dramatic climax sequence, scene 83. The center of the gallery will feature a remake and stand-alone installation of the film’s clock tower, shown in the film as an impromptu 3D experience.  Also on display from Twixt, will be bat and birdhouses from Nice, California artist John Hathaway, whose front yard/gallery/shop “The Woodpecker”, was a key set in the film. TWIXT sc. 83 will also feature a series of other pieces from the film’s set department that were found around different locations in Northern California and in the Coppola archives, as well as behind the scenes and set photography by the film’s executive producer, Anahid Nazarian and Set Photographer, Kalman Mueller. The gallery will run trailers of the film, along with other enhancements to bring Twixt’s horror scenes to life.

THE OTHER VENICE FILM FESTIVAL
PHOTOS BY: DAN LEVY
at Beyond Baroque Foundation, Venice, CA
October, 13-16, 2011

Featured films included the Allen Sarlo documentary Work to Surf and the Dogtown farce film, Day at the Pool.

Allen Sarlo, aka “The Wave Killer”, aka “The King of Mailbu”. Allen was surfing by age 6, at 14 he was surfing the infamous “Cove” at the POP pier. The film, “Dogtown, Z Boys” documented his adolescence and captured a celluloid preview of his athletically intense surfing style. In 1974, at 16 Allen took first place at the prestigious Malibu 4-A contest, to the chagrin of the older surfers. He tells his adventure as a surfer and the many contests he wins. The surf life style film “Work to Surf” is Allen’s latest adventure, it’s a bio documentary with a ‘feel good’ message. Allen is an active member of Surfrider Foundation, rallying over the years for cleaner water at Malibu’s “Surfrider Beach”.

A Day at the Pool is a documentary-style film that attempts to uncover the true origins of modern skateboarding. Interviews with Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta, Jay Adams and the rest of the Dogtown Crew reveal that an anonymous local kid may have been largely responsible for the skateboarding revolution that lead to their success in the late 70s.

PANHANDLE SLIM “L.A. FOLK” ART SHOW COVERAGE

OCTOBER. 15, 2011

RANCH-N-ROLL

PHOTOS BY DAN LEVY

Libby Knudson, artist and sole proprietor, of what has become one of the coolest galleries in Los Angeles, the Ranch-N-Roll, played host to yet another epic art expose’ on October 15, 2011. This evening featured the colorful and impacting works of deep South folk artist Panhandle Slim. Some in the skateboarding world might know him as Scott Stanton, one of the infamous Zorlac team warrior rippers. Others may know him through his unique Southern folk music with a twist. In whatever capacity you know of Panhandle Slim, his artistic talent is as unprecedented as his unassuming demeanor and relentless passion for creating his art in all forms.

This show highlighted a vibrant body of work encapsulating a diverse array of prolific musicians, skateboarders, poets, politicians, writers and other persons of merit. All of the paintings included quotes from the highlighted individual along with a caricature style portrait. It was  overwhelmingly pleasant as you moved through the space and took in the power of the pieces coupled by the humor and sarcasm behind all the icons portrayed.

The opposing walls and displays were decorated with original works by Libby Knudson embellishing her custom country flair and unique eye for functional impacting display. The wooden cases were filled with authentic Western apparel and perfectly worn in cowboy boots giving you the sense of being in an old Western thoroughfare within shouting distance of a saloon.

The back patio served as a speak easy for the evening with an intimate setting where the small elite crowd was fortunate to experience a one of a kind performance by Rain Phoenix.  This duo performed a rendition of “California Uber Alles” by the Dead Kennedies with a hauntingly prolific energy that left the entire audience in awe. The spirits were flowing as the barkeeper worked frivolously to appease the temporary saloon serving with a smile and sarcastic wit.

Panhandle Slim took a small detour from selling his art to sing a country song with Rain Phoenix bringing some Southern gut to the City of Angels. Exene Cervenka of legendary punk band X was in attendance along with art collectors and other Los Angeles elite.

The show was a complete success as Ranch-N-Roll continues to play host to some of the best modern-day artists in the world. Stay tuned for more to come from Panhandle Slim at http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=814093496.

Make sure to check out Ranch and Roll when you are in the Los Angeles area and pick up one of Libby’s custom-made Guadalupe chairs while you’re there. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ranch-n-Roll/125615207451186

C.R. STECYK III ROGUE PRINTSHOP AND INSTALLATION

PHOTOS BY DAN LEVY

On the rare occasion, you may get a chance to meet your idols and have a conversation that will stay in your permanent story telling roster for life. It is even more out of the ordinary to actually be able to take part in the creative process with those you hold in high acclaim. The students of the California State University at Northridge, along with a lucky few, were able to do just that. The one and only C.R. Stecyk III led an interactive rogue printshop for aspiring art students of the university utilizing the techniques of silk screening and artistic lithography. Stecyk along with the students produced a body of work based around the concept of rogue signage, and the art was then hung up around the campus for all to see. The workshop went for three days and ended with a question and answer session with Craig, following a rare video installation . It was truly a one of a kind experience and the students were able to get a glimpse into what it really takes to be a professional artist.

Stecyk, a world-famous CSUN alumnus and multi-disciplinary artist, is active in printmaking, photography and design, and has presented a variety of media through a combination of guerrilla street installations and gallery exhibitions. Much respect to C.R.S.

The CSUN West Gallery, Art and Design Center, is in Room 201, 18111 Nordhoff St. Northridge, CA. Gallery Hours: Mon-Sat. 12-4pm. Thurs 12-8pm. Installation dates. Oct. 7-8 and Oct 10, 2011
