12 Southern California museums and cultural centers you can visit virtually

The entire state may be on lockdown due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, but that doesn’t mean people can’t visit museums and cultural institutions, at least virtually. In response to the stay-at-home order to fight the spread of the virus, several local institutions are offering a way to experience culture, art and science with new online programming. Much of the online programming is free, but donations to keep these institutions going are accepted. Here are a dozen places in Southern Califo...

Forget galleries, this San Pedro art show wants to take you to other places

This art show isn’t happening in a sleek modern gallery or pristine outdoor venue because this show bills itself as the anti-establishment art fair. Made up of artists who set up booth-like displays inspired by unconventional locations, the Other Places art fair happens in San Pedro March 14 and 15. This year, with the ongoing goal of providing an alternative to large-scale, commercially-driven art fairs and galleries, the festival returns to the Battery Leary-Merriam at Angels Gate. The site is...

Visual arts: Frieze Los Angeles forges its identity

Frieze Los Angeles arrives here at a time when the importance of international art fairs is being hotly debated. Over the last decade, the press, art critics and activists have been bemoaning the ubiquity and indifference of art fairs to the global climate crisis, serving as a bloated symbol of the elitist art world whose denizens recklessly fly around the globe. Frieze Los Angeles seeks to rise above the backlash by showcasing an eclectic lineup of artists and galleries — both established and u...

Artist Shag is the mid-century modern man — and brand

Perhaps no contemporary artist has captured the spirit of the mid-century modern design movement better than Josh Agle, known as Shag. Since the early 1990s, Agle has painted plasma screen size vibrant tableaux of nattily attired men mingling with sleekly-coiffed women in mid-century architectural wonders. The brightly colored paintings and prints are reproduced across media including prints, books, housewares and assorted merchandise that both celebrate and satirize the mid-century era. “Th...

Art Battle Seattle turns painting into a live competition, complete with DJ, audience and drinks

With the exception of the occasional group class, painting is largely a lonely, solitary pursuit. It’s a discipline usually driven by obsession with painstaking detail and technical precision.

Coachella 2019: These cone like structures are inspired by an African landscape

Twelve cone-like structures in shades of rich dark blues, oranges and corals stand in sharp contrast to the green grass and the flat ground of the Empire Polo Club grounds in Indio. The art installation from architect Francis Kéré, titled “Sarbalé ke,” has an almost organic look to it. Perhaps that’s the point: it’s supposed to be representative of a forest of baobab trees. Sarbalé ke, in the Mooré language of Burkina Faso, means “the house of celebration.” Kere said the trees in his home countr...

Coachella 2019: Those giant paisley sculptures? They have a message

Coachella Valley artist Sofia Enriquez has long been interested in both fashion and art and her first-ever installation at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, “Mismo,” blends the two with ease. In “Mismo,” Enriquez has taken paisleys — the kind of swirling, swoopy pattern you might see on a tie or someone’s sofa — and blown them up big as three dimensional sculptures which double as murals. The paisleys are 14-18 feet high and arranged in a circular format. One of the murals si...

Coachella 2019: It’s not superbloom flowers, but cacti, that you’ll want to get a selfie with at the festival

Cacti aren’t exactly out of place in the desert, but a certain set of cacti created for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival are going to be a much better backdrop for an Instagram selfie. “Colossal Cacti,” an installation designed by Office Kovacs (architects Andrew Kovacs and Erin Wright), consists of seven large, brightly-colored saguaro-like sculptures that range in size from 13-52 feet. Kovacs said that the sculptures form a sort of skyline on the festival grounds. “We were looking ...
