David Mamet Tries Out A Play As Quietly As Possible In L.A. The L.A. Times’s Critic Found Out About It Anyway

Charles McNulty: “I’m going to respect the tacit wishes of Mamet and not review the play as I would if it had had an official press opening. A work that’s still being tinkered with before it’s shipped to New York deserves the chance to evolve in peace even if it’s charging $50 a ticket to L.A. theatergoers. But the experience reminded me of what I admire about Mamet’s talent — the vigor and cunning of voices in all-out attack — and what I have found so off-putting since Oleanna — the stacking o...

Red Herring, DTLA’s New Art Deco Sanctuary

An airy, thoughtfully-designed space that matches the playful nature of the owners The tropical birds, monkeys, and colorful jungle foliage in Mike Willcox’s mural set the Art Deco-inspired tone for Red Herring in downtown Los Angeles. Chef Dave Woodall and Alexis Martin Woodall’s new restaurant invites diners from the bustle of Grand Avenue’s financial district into a classic Hollywood-meets-Miami haven—one both lush and glamorous. Willcox collaborated with …

Home on a sloped ravine uses natural materials to blend into the landscape

Built by Chicago-based firm Wheeler Kearns Architects, the Ravine House is a beautiful home that sits tucked into a natural forest setting just outside of Highland Park, Illinois.

Adding Back In The Workers That Art About Los Angeles So Often Forgets

For instance, David Hockney’s “splash” paintings created an idea of Los Angeles that was cool and secluded. Artist Ramiro Gomez imagines what was going on behind the scenes in No Splash – and other scenes of “cool” LA. “He creates these paintings more as questions than as heavy, social statements, using the words ‘subtle anger’ to explain his motivation. ‘I try to stay away from didactic work,’ he says. ‘I leave that to the activists. I’m trying to find the middle ground.'” – The Guardian (UK) ...

Can The Worldwide Vinyl Boom Recover From The Apollo Factory Fire?

A billion dollar industry dependent on one factory in California? That’s physical manufacturing, so perhaps not. The factory, where 75 percent of the world’s blank lacquers were made, burned in early February. “Pressing plants and mastering engineers are assessing the future. Some have expressed fear that the fire will disrupt the global production of new album releases and slow the seemingly endless supply of reissues that major labels churn out.” – Los Angeles Times

How to Build Your Personal Brand as a Freelancer

This article has been contributed by Diana Adjadj. Have you checked the latest figures on the freelance workforce? It’s getting very crowded out there. According to the latest figures by Statista, there are almost 60 million independent workers in the U.S. alone. This is impressive considering that the gig economy was virtually non-existent just a decade ago. Now, the number of freelancers is projected to reach more than 90 million in less than a decade. On top of that, the annual increase in th...

Art in the age of artifice

As a magician and sleight-of-hand artist, I've been wrestling with the thorny and slippery notion of Art for a long time. A recent "magical project" rekindled my attention about this ongoing quest. Here follow my latest musings on this domain. What is Art? Art can be seen as the lifeblood running through the veins of human history. From prelinguistic cave dweller to postmodern city dweller, art stands as a witness to the evolution of every culture, reflecting and participating in our views of re...
