Diane Arbus’ portraits of socialites, nudists, transvestites, carnival performers, and eccentrics reflect her long-standing interest in subcultures and the rituals of groups within society. Arbus closely collaborated with her subjects by posing them, engaging them in conversations, and spending time in their homes and environments. This process set Arbus apart from her contemporaries, and resulted in images that are formal and deliberate, but also exceedingly personal. In turn, each portrait becomes an engaging collaboration between the subject, photographer, and viewer.

Gainer will debut Sunrise/Sunset, a video installation comprised of a projection of a sunset through a hand blown hourglass. Mark Hagen’s carved and polished obsidian sculptures refer to the rock’s utilitarian function in tools once employed by ancient civilizations while acknowledging its current obsolescence as a sculpted glass. Emilie Halpern’s oeuvre explores a wide range of subjects that include astronomy, mythology and geography by employing a combination of poetic restraint and humble gestures.

The artist utilizes painting, photography, collage and fabric sculpture to transform images from Occupy Steubenville, Free Pussy Riot, Black Bloc in Egypt and other protest movements. Her highly patterned works incorporate domestic craft techniques (such as quilting and faux finish painting) to investigate the clothing and masks worn by protesters including paisley bandanas, keffiyehs and camouflage, all of which are ubiquitous in current protest and resistance movements. Wyman explores the idea that the clothed body is often the first point of protest and demonstrates how masks and disguises provide collective power and protection in conflict zones.

The thing about Jasper Johns that is often overlooked is that his art has become part of the DNA of the Art World. Some might argue that this happened in a Big Bang fashion in the late fifties when his art burst on the scene. It was then that the rather commonplace motifs of Johns’ [...]
The New Regen Projects exhibition space opened in late September in an area of Los Angeles that can best be approximated as south Hollywood. At over 10,000 square feet and designed by architect Michael Maltzan, the space meets and exceeds the expectations of ambitious and pretentious (I use this word as a positive) upper echelon [...]
I don’t know how it will play in Texas when it comes to the Nasher Sculpture Center in February 2013, but Ken Price’s magnificent exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is so thoroughly suffused with the bittersweet aura of a memorial that it’s impossible not to be thrilled by the joy that [...]

I’m in this multimedia experimental MA program in Specialized Journalism The Arts at the University of Southern California. I’ll [...]
