Hollywood’s Hennessey + Ingalls is welcoming Brandon Boyd for a little question and answer session about his new book. It’s happening August 16.
VIA Publication is having their big kickoff for their *third* issue coming up on August 10. It’s at the Ace and will be great!
It’s been some time since we’ve spoken about Made In L.A., *the* Summer art show in Los Angeles (and one that really does speak to the crazy talent we have in this city). There are many post-show things to write about, one of them being the really, really excellent exhibition catalogue. Serving as both a means to contextualize and sort of artsy yearbook, the book condenses and expands the idea of the exhibition into some well designed pages.
Local artist and writer Gordy Grundy has released a book called Artist’s Pants. It shares the humor and life of a working artist and is totally great. It’s out now!
Years ago, I was in Counterpoints looking for a good book to gift to a friend. I somehow ended up rifling through a collection of sex books and found a very funny little something called Obscene Interiors. The book is by local artist Justin Jorgensen and was based on an art project from 2004. What is it? A very funny, early Internet examination of sexual performance and the surrounding, unflattering, repulsive surrounding interior design being practiced in the background.
