A New Art Epicenter
(NEW YORK) Los Angeles may be the center of the film world (Hollywood, that is), but in April, the city’s out to show that it can generate plenty of art buzz as well. The second annual Los Angeles Art Weekend, taking place from April 2 through April 5, 2009, is a four-day event showing off the city’s artistic talent and cultural offerings, in everything from art to architecture, design, film and performance. Produced by Black Frame and ForYourArt, an interdisciplinary producer, meta-curator and publisher, the weekend includes exhibition and gallery walkthroughs, film screenings (including the West coast’s first look at Valentino: The Last Emperor), book signings, discussions, and, naturally, no shortness of parties.
Venues for the weekend include art giants like MOCA, LACMA, and the Getty Center, but everything from salons like Farmlab to pop-up shops like Royal/T will be participating. On the stylish side--in addition to the sure-to-be star-studded Valentino screening--a press preview of the Monocle shop will be a go-to for the chic set.
