We went out to dinner Saturday night to 410 Boyd in order to see Rick Robinson’s exhibition (rickrospective), but the show had already come down and they were installing a new exhibit. Let’s just say that the food was great and leave it at that.
Then we went to Dangerous Curve, fast becoming my favorite Los Angeles gallery. They hosted one of the best exhibits of the year, Pinchefuntastique a participatory installation by RaeAnne Robbinett. She took commercial detritus from the barrioand made art commentary installations throughout the gallery. The show was alive and vivid and the art combined a cerebral cataloguing of experience with a sarcastic challenge to the viewer to try to outlast all of the permutations one could come up with.
So while we were there, a guy tells us about a party happening at a loft. so we go over there and there is a well-lit industrial building – definitely part of the redevelopment going on in Downtown L.A. this one is right across the street front he old LACE – in fact the letters are still on the building. So we walk in and go up the elevator to the party – it is totally not out crowd, as my girlfriend and i are neither black nor gay. But the loft was decorated in a fantastic manner, so we just had to look around.
Then we went to a party for Matt Aston on 6th Street.
