This is interesting: currently fundraising on Kickstarter is an event called the Steam Carnival, a “carnival reimagined with robots, fire, and lasers to inspire young inventors in science, technology, engineering, art, and math.” Sweet! They’re over halfway to their goal and you have until June 3 to help out.
June 16 at Cinefamily will be a showing of queer cult documentary Let Me Die A Woman which details a few transgender stories. It sounds like a wild film and it is being presented by Zackary Drucker. We’d love to make this!
Galleries are wonderful places to meet up with friends, lovers or both. Or find new ones. Private Views are full of beautifully romantic people, looking longingly at the art and considering (if one has the means) whether to purchase or indulging in flights of fancy, gazing into the photographic print with its promise of another life.
Fahey/Klein has been inspiring both collectors and dreamers since 1986 and has exhibited work from such luminaries across the spectrum in fashion, fine art and reportage photography as Berenice Abbott, Ellen Von Unwerth, Helmut Newton, Man Ray, Irving Penn, Horst P. Horst, Herb Ritts and photojournalist, James Nachtwey. The gallery has over 8000 photographs in stock, an incredible (and discreet) database of international collectors and changes its exhibition space for a new two-person show every five weeks.
Congratulations to Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles’ new mayor!! We’re so excited and we love him and we know he will do an excellent job. Let’s celebrate by listening to a little guest DJ set he did for KCRW a few years back.
If you do anything today, VOTE!! The future of LA is in our hands: put them to work!!
