FRIDAY, MARCH 16
Rowan Wood: The Quadrant of Caricature
Steve Turner Contemporary (Mid-Wilshire)
An exhibition of new paintings created in the last two years by Rowan Wood. Wood’s paintings explore the nature of visual language, parsed into “signs” that communicate formal and connotative ideas.
Jon Jost: Chameleon
Echo Park Film Center (Echo Park)
South Korea-based filmmaker Jon Jost presents his 1978 film Chameleon, a portrait of the Hollywood arts milieu of the late 70s, at this Los Angeles Filmforum event. On March 17, Jost will appear at Cinefamily with his other LA-based film Angel City, and on Sunday, March 18, he’ll appear at the Egyptian Theatre for the US premiere of his latest work, Swimming in Nebraska. Tickets available online.
