Modern Art in Los Angeles: Frank Gehry and the Los Angeles Art Scene
The Getty Center (Brentwood)
In the 1960s, artists and architects in Los Angeles shared ideas and inspiration and developed close friendships. This was particularly true of Frank Gehry, whose distinctive vision of architecture was, in part, shaped by his many exchanges with visual artists, primarily those in the Venice art scene. For this event, Frank Gehry will reunite with some collaborators and friends to reflect on their formative years in Los Angeles. Guests include Peter Alexander, Chuck Arnoldi, Tony Berlant, Billy Al Bengston, and Ed Moses. This event is sold out.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14
Compensation, Directed by Zeinabu irene Davis
UCLA Billy Wilder Theater (Westwood)
UCLA Film and Television Archive’s Pacific Standard Time film series, L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema celebrates Los Angeles-based African American and African filmmakers who met at UCLA from the 1960s to 1980s and forged an alternative Black Cinema practice. Compensation depicts two Chicago love stories, set a century apart, a deaf woman and a hearing man face the specter of death. They also confront intraracial differences across lines of gender, class, education and ability. Through innovative use of sign language and title cards evoking the silent film era, Compensation is accessible to deaf and hearing audiences. Preceded by Dark Exodus, director Iverson White visualizes the migration of African Americans from the rural South to the industrial North in sepia tones, capturing the atmosphere of early 20th century America. In person: Iverson White. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online.
