Loud and Proud
Just because it's not February doesn't mean we can't celebrate the accomplishments of the black community. Opening on Saturday, August 11th is the Black People Rock Art Exhibition at the SKYLINE LOFT. There will be 40 distinguished People of Color whose accomplishments have contributed - and continue to contribute - to the black community. The event will be a time to empower the black community through beautiful art of Visual Transformations Founder David Brannon, delicious cuisine, and a refreshing bar provided by Ciroc Premium Vodka.
Rebels with a Cause
Driving through the streets of LA, you are bound to see the controversial art known as graffitti. Some condemn it as vandalism while others appreciate it as expressive and rebellious art. Either way, delve into it at the Beyond the Streets art exhibition on Thursday, July 5th and Friday, July 6th. The exhibition, covering 40,000 square feet, includes paintings, sculpture, photography, installations and other works of art.
LA serves as the birthplace for a lot of things: products, movements, policies, ideas, trends, and art. There can be an entire exhibit dedicated to showing art grown and cultivated in LA, and on Saturday, June 2nd the Hammer Museum will do just that with the Made in LA 2018 opening celebration. The exhibit will be exposing artists from all over LA with music by Alima Lee and DJ LENGUA, drinks, and food.
Art = Politics
Art is political activism and political activism is art, and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles in collaboration with USC's Roski School of Art and Design, and KORO, Pulic Art Norway, want to show off this perfect combination through its Culture in Action: Conversations in Social Practice Art. The event will be guided by Grant Kester, a professor of Art History at the University of California, San Diego. It will be a week-long seminar that analyzes and discusses the intricate relationship between political activism and art in the context of current events. It will be an enlightening and engaging experience that will leave the audience with a new appreiciation for both art and political activism.
