Inspired by Pecha Kucha Nights and Ted Talks, this series of presentations, during Gary Baseman’s exhibition, must answer the questions: What’s New? The evening will include live talks, performances and videos.

Baseman-Opening

Gary Baseman crosses many lines of art as a painter, illustrator, video and performance artist, animator, TV/movie producer, curator, and toy designer. His work has been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Time, and Rolling Stone; and he designed the best-selling game “Cranium.” He created the three-time Emmy and BAFTA award-winning animation series, “Teacher’s Pet,” earning him credit as one of the 100 Most Creative People in Entertainment named by Entertainment Weekly Magazine. The Los Angeles Times has described his art as “adorably perverse,” humorously playful and dark, childlike but often with adult themes. His fine art has been displayed in galleries and museums in Brazil, Germany, Israel, Italy, Russia, and all over the United States.

The Door Is Always Open, a retrospective for Baseman, was recently on view at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA through August 18, 2013. As explained by the Museum, “ it explores the influences of Baseman’s Jewish family heritage and American popular culture on his exuberant, boundary-defying art.”
