L.A.'s art scene has seriously been rocking these days with shows and events that get the youngens excited. Between Terrywood at OHWOW, Mike D's Transmission LA that gave us a multi-sensory experience with performances by Santigold and Diplo and James Franco's Rebel exhibition we've had a steady flow of fresh and interesting art culture pumping through this town. Barry McGee's new solo show kept that trend rolling as it brought out a packed crowd to PRISM for its opening reception Friday night. More»
Oh, James Franco, thank god you're alright! We've been so worried about you as it's been almost a full month since we last caught up with you... and you had your hair in cornrows. We're pleased to report he was back in full smirking, self-satisfied effect this weekend for the opening of Rebel, the off-site MOCA art show he curated. Though he did wear a suit to the opening reception, he didn't stray too far beyond his comfort zone as he clearly could not be bothered to run a comb though his hair for at least a full day prior to the event. Here's a look at who showed up for the Rebel debut and what the Franco-curated exhibition is all about. More»
It's another Monday back to hitting the grind and maybe you need to be reminded to balance your weekly work hustle with some leisurely activities that have educational value. Visiting a museum and catching up on your art game is an awesome way to feel good about how you spend your downtime and perhaps sound smarter than your friends. Lots of exciting things in the world of art are happening right now in L.A. and we're here to break it down for you and tell you which local shows and attractions we think you should go see this week. Let's discuss... More»

It's October? When did that happen? I swear I JUST paid September's rent, like, yesterday. Time flies when you're having fun/on a deadline, eh? Well this means that everyone is back in the swing of things, Pacific Standard Time is in full swing and our days are shorter and colder so you can't blow off art for the beach anymore. See you around this weekend, there is some GREAT stuff going on! More»
I know you guys probably assume I survive on only art and creativity, but alas, I need food, shelter and full time employment to support it. This week in said job, I have been super busy! It's great, but it has kept me from really being able to do a full awesome weekly update! So I'm doing something a little different. More»
As we get ever closer to the official October launch date of The Getty's sprawling Pacific Standard Time initiative, the preview exhibits and promotional materials continue to surprise, delight, and raise our already intense anticipation. In the newest, just released installment, HBO star and Wes Anderson muse Jason Schwartzman is taught a Chrismas Carol-style lesson about the value of art museums when he is visited by the ghostly apparition of renowned artist John Baldessari. And oh yeah, Jeff Garlin cameo! More»
The embarrassment Falling Whistles is currently experiencing at the moment after realizing the wall they chose to canvas this week with their new campaign happens to hold a cherished, internationally recognized mural done by artists from across the globe must be overwhelming. It's one thing to make a public mistake, but it's another when it's, like, 30ft tall and is so long that I can't give a real estimate since there isn't a wide enough shot to fit the entire thing.

Alright friends and countrymen/ladies, fall is fully upon us, I'm wearing a sweater, transitioning into warm coffee drinks instead of iced and seeing the onslaught of pumpkin spice EVERYthing. THIS IS GREAT NEWS! More»
["The Hockney Swimmer" by Michael Childers via] Fall is coming, school's back in session, and you can't walk down La Cienega without tripping over a new Gallery opening. Here are the shows I'm most looking forward too, along with the ones I'll be checking out that I missed last weekend. L.A.'s looking good, guys. See you at the free Chuck Shaw wine table. More»
The end of the (technical) summer is here. This is good news for me for multiple reasons: my translucent skin, my aversion to shorts, the art world's vacation is finally coming to an end. This doesn't mean that I didn't find some awesome things for you guys, just that in the next couple of weeks everyone will be stepping up their game and it will be on, the beginning of the season. This must be what hunters feel like 2 weeks before deer/duck/bear/buffalo season starts up. Anticipation is in the air! More»
