'It was the beginning of cable television and as such probably the first opportunity, and maybe the last, to be able to participate in the whole cultural process. It would give us a little window to the outside world which enabled us to show our work, not just my own, but the work of everybody, and to create a truly alternative television. The timing was perfect.' - Jaime Davidovich
Contemporary artist and old poker pal, José Parlá "Ease" was recently interviewed by Joey Garfield for Upper Playground/Walrus TV. In this short, but sweet 10 minute documentary, José breaks down his creative process while giving a studio tour, walking around town, and busting out a few dance moves. Immersed in José's explanation of where he draws inspiration from, I found that I missed his twinkling eyes and soothing voice. This New York-based artist is one cool cat. And it's wonderful seeing him experience such well-earned success, so full of joy and rigor.
Director of Critical Studies and MA/PhD programs in UCLA’s Department of Architecture and Urban Design, Sylvia Lavin engages artists, architects, and curators in a series of lively discussions on how cities are increasingly molded by images rather than buildings; on whether art and architecture are converging to form an integrated type of cultural consumption; and if the concept of the masterpiece has finally been destroyed by the sheer quantity of global design production.
Look at that. Creative guru and funny man Andrew Gura throwing up another music video for zero budget. He says, "when you're shooting the video in the artist's house, how can it not be a good time?" So looks like this director will work, for fun.
Someday I'll launch my rap career. And I'll have Andrew shoot my videos. I can see it all now: Andrew trailing behind me in Westminster while I eat banh mi, riding my sting-ray. We're going to blow it up big. Saigon soldier style.
Hey guys, for a limited time, my pal Steve (aka Ramblin Worker) is selling his art direct from his workshop to you. Recognize Steve's style? That's probably because you've seen his work for Puma, DC Shoes, Bicycle Film Festival and Modest Mouse somewhere cool before. Grab his art quickly, before it's gallery gigs again only (speaking of which, keep an eye out for his show at White Walls/Shooting Gallery in San Francisco this Fall). If you're interested in Steve's stitches, drop him a line. I'm sure he's got a small goldmine to share with you!
Admission: Free; reservations required. Reservations available beginning Tuesday, March 24, at 9:00 a.m. Call (310) 440-7300
John Doe and Exene Cervenka formed the core of the legendary band X after meeting in 1976 at the Venice Poetry Workshop. This concert is a rare opportunity for John and Exene, with no additional musicians, to showcase their decades-long collaborative songwriting and singing partnership, performing acoustically as a duo. Expect to hear material from their respective solo projects as well as from the bands the Knitters and X.
