Morgan Lehman Gallery Presents: Flight Plan

Morgan Lehman is pleased to present our first summer group show titled “Flight Plan”, featuring Brook Caballero, Dana Carlson, Orly Cogan, Sean Cavanaugh, Kirsten Deirup, Franklin Evans, Philip Knoll, Jenny Laden, Dona Lief, Jeffrey Milstein, Amy Ross, and Paul Villinski.
Technically speaking, flight plans are filed by pilots with the local Aviation Authority prior to flying an aircraft to a destination. The flight plans include basic anticipated information such as departure and arrival points, estimated time of arrival, alternate airports in case of bad weather, the pilot's name, and number of passengers. These plans additionally provide a way of alerting rescuers if the scheduled flight is overdue.

Beijing is exploding with 2008 Olympics construction. At every meeting I attended, I made sure to check out the view. And boy was it awesome. Next to all the fake box-like buildings were hundreds of cranes. It made me think about the city's vibe and the people that inhabit it. I wondered, who works in these buildings? What are their lives like? What's up with the next gen? I didn't find any answers but it didn't matter. Surprisingly, I liked what I saw...minus the crazy pollution of course! Progress is being made in a big way. Now would be a good time to hum the Star Wars death march tune.

I was in Beijing, China for a ridiculously short amount of time for work. During my premier visit to China I was able to visit the Forbidden City and the Great Wall. Both historical landmarks blew me away and I was able to capture a few jump photos. If you think "food" when someone says Chinese, you are going to get steamrolled. Everybody should visit China first hand and see what the future holds.

An expressive and masterful painter, Peter Paul Rubens was also a savvy businessman who promoted his fame by making prints of his most successful paintings. In this free lecture by art historian Michiel Plomp, "From Drawings and Oil into Print: Rubens' Retouched Drawings and Oil Sketches Preparatory for Prints," learn how Rubens collaborated with a small army of artists to rework his complex compositions into prints.
Peter Paul Rubens employed a small army of artists to make prints after his most successful paintings, drawings, and tapestry designs, thus increasing his fame throughout Europe. This exhibition explores the close working relationship between Rubens and his printmakers, elucidating a fascinating aspect of artistic collaboration. Not satisfied with making mere reproductions of his pictures, Rubens encouraged his artists to modify his compositions, which he also often reworked. In attempting to meet Rubens' strict demands, his printmakers contributed significantly to the development of Western printmaking techniques. The display's key theme of collaboration offers a supporting dialogue to the exhibition Rubens and Brueghel: A Working Friendship.
The Getty Center is located at 1200 Getty Center Drive in Los Angeles, California.

Lately we've been wondering why Swap Meet hasn't been raided in a joint RIAA/NSA skull-crushing magneto-sweep. We think it's because they've seen Big Trouble in Little China. The lawyers are all like "Hey, go to Chinatown and find out what this 'swapy karaoke' business is all about." And the skull-crushers are all like "Pfft! I'm not messing with that frickin' lightning guy!"
