Art School Confidential is a 2006 comedy-drama film directed by Terry Zwigoff, loosely based on the comic of the same name by Daniel Clowes. The film is Zwigoff's second collaboration with Clowes, the first being 2001's Ghost World (which was also released by United Artists). The cast includes Max Minghella, Sophia Myles, John Malkovich, Jim Broadbent, Michael Lerner and Anjelica Huston.
Join Catalyst for a field trip to view the Museum of Contemporary Art's exhibition Lynda Benglis, an exhibition of the work of American artist Lynda Benglis from the past forty years.
On Sunday, October 2, the historic Broadway Theater District in Downtown Los Angeles will erupt with Trespass, a parade where artists and residents will rally together to engage in art, music, dancing, floats, community activism, and performance. The parade is just one component of Trespass – a collaborative project between Arto Lindsay, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and West of Rome Public Art (WoR) that also includes a party and a T-shirt project with call-to-action slogans. Many Los Angeles art luminaries, including John Baldessari, Barbara Kruger, Nancy Rubins, and Jeffrey Vallance, were asked to produce statements – personal calls to action expressing political or social concerns – which will be worn on T-shirts in the parade. Many of the participating artists will also join in with performative pieces.
Catalyst is pleased to present Gallery TV, a sculpture and slideshow projection by Gabriel Arroyo Velasco that makes humorous comments on the value of art in Los Angeles.
It has been one whole year since Catalyst last took a trip to the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk. Now we are back. As a means to spur new ideas in both, our individual art practices and our collective event planning and organization, it was, furthermore, a delightful, cultural experience that our community within Irvine could surely benefit from.
