The Weekend In Art, August 2-4, 2013


Oh boy! The weekend is coming up. August tends to be the lost month for intellect, being overwhelmed by extreme temperatures, out-of-state/country vacations, and illicit times at HARD SUMMER. But if you’re feeling ready to learn, may we suggest:

Friday, August 2nd

LACMA: free admission after 3pm for Los Angeles residents; open until 11pm. Live music. A banner summer of exhibitions, including the HUGE James Turrell retrospective, a community preview for the LACMA expansion, new Central African tribal art, Pinaree Sanpitak’s hammock installation, Hans Richter’s Encounters, and a Pepto-Bismol pink object installation by Stephen Prina. Seriously, you could not jam more quality (and free!!) culture into your Friday night than with a visit to LACMA.

Saturday, August 3rd

Night Gallery has a closing party for their exhibition Transtextuality. This downtown gallery is le hip place to be in LA right now, and all tongue-in-cheek-French aside, Night Gallery puts on some wonderfully provocative exhibitions. Visit and see why ArtForum named the exhibition as one of its critic’s picks for July. The closing reception is from 9pm until midnight.

You can also attend the opening party for Jason Metcalf’s Special Meal at Thank You For Coming. More info in this Art Nerd article:

Sunday, August 4th

MOCA Grand Avenue holds a panel discussion on architecture, In Search Of A Definition. Get all technical about whether the word “sculpturalism” is a good term to describe modern and contemporary architecture in southern California. Begins at 3pm and is free with general admission to MOCA.
