To mark the occasion, Mayor Eric Garcetti and Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell will lead an Official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with the project’s collaborators at 4:00 p.m. at the Hollyhock House on February 13, 2015. Following this, for one night only, the City of Los Angeles and the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation will open Hollyhock House for self-guided tours for 24 hours, commencing at 4:00 p.m. on February 13 մինչեւ 4:00 p.m. on February 14, 2015. Visitors are invited to enjoy the event and share with others via social media with the #WrightAtNight hashtag.

A significant part of Los Angeles’ storied architectural history, Մոլոշավարդ House – a National Historic Landmarkwas one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s magnificent masterpieces marking his first foray into architecture in Los Angeles. Hollyhock House boasts a lyrical and poetic style of architecture “California Romanza,” or “freedom to make one’s own form,” which complements LA’s significance as a trendsetter in the arts and architecture space. Underscoring its importance as one of the world’s architectural gems, Hollyhock House is now on the tentative list of the first modern architecture nominations from the United States to the United Nation’s Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage List.

“Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House is a crown jewel of Los Angeles architecture,” said Mayor Garcetti. “Restoring this landmark to its original glory is a great example of how the city can preserve its unique history while providing Angelenos access to art in everyday places.

“The Hollyhock House at Barnsdall Art Park is a cultural and historical gem in the City of Los Angeles, and I am thrilled that this architectural masterpiece is restored and ready to reopen,” said O’Farrell, chair of the city’s Arts, Parks, Health, Aging and Los Angeles River Committee. “I want to thank my staff and the city departments who collaborated together and moved this project forward so that every Angeleno who visits the Hollyhock House can appreciate its beauty both inside and out.”

The storied history of Hollyhock House begins with Aline Barnsdall, a Pennsylvanian oil heiress interested in producing theater in her own venue. Purchasing a 36-acre site in Hollywood known as Olive Hill in 1919, Barnsdall commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to build a theater where she could produce avant-garde plays. Soon after, the project morphed into a performing arts complex that included her residence. Construction on the project began in 1919 and ended in 1921 when Barnsdall fired Wright, citing costs as the primary reason for the contract’s termination. At the time, Frank Lloyd Wright was already an established architect, who was concurrently working on the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, Ճապոնական լաքած իր.

A philanthropist, art collector, political radical, and single parent, Barnsdall deeded the land now known as Barnsdall Park and its Frank Lloyd Wright designed structures as a permanent home for the appreciation of art and architecture to the City of Los Angeles in 1927. In doing so, she provided an accessible arts center to the community that incorporated and preserved the famous Hollyhock House as a crucial component. Aline Barnsdall’s pioneering vision gave birth to the California Modernism movement and helped grow the careers of notable architects including Wright, Schindler, and Neutraall of whom were instrumentally involved in the project.

The house has served various purposes, including a fifteen-year run as the headquarters of the California Art Club beginning in 1927. After a major restoration by the City (1974 – 76) it became a public museum. It was among the first structures to be designated as a historic-cultural monument by the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission in 1963. Մեջ 2007 it became a National Historic Landmark.

After many incarnations, Hollyhock House is reclaiming its former glory. Hollyhock House is the first house of Wright’s second period and his first residence in Southern California. Named for Barnsdall’s favorite flower, the Hollyhock is incorporated throughout the design scheme of the residence.

The recently completed restoration is an important historical revelation for first-time visitors and regulars alike. Visitors will be able to see and experience the house in much of its original splendor. Floors, windows, doors, decorative molding, and long-forgotten paint colors have been recreated with utmost attention to detail. The latest phase of renovation took place from 2008 though 2014, with a total of $4,359,000 spent on conservation efforts.

Hollyhock House is operated by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA).

DCA provides educational programming, conservation services, and individual and group tours of this historic site that offer a window into Aline Barnsdall’s life and her artistic vision, in addition to her extraordinary partnership with one of the United States’ greatest architects.

After it reopens on February 13, 2015, Hollyhock House will feature self-guided “Walk Wright In” tours on Thursdays through Sundays from 11:00 a.m. մինչեւ 4:00 p.m. for a fee of $7 for adults, $3 for students and seniors with identification, իսկ $3 for children under 12 when accompanied by a paying adult. Special arrangements may be made for docent-led tours, group tours, guided tours, and other engagements by calling 323.913.4031.

Robert Williams: Slang Գեղագիտություն!

իսկ 20 Տարի ազդեցության տակ Juxtapoz

Guest Curators: Andrew Hosner (Thinkspace) & Gary Pressman (Copro Gallery)

Exhibition Opens Sunday, Փետրվար 22nd – April 19րդ, 2015

Gallery Hours 12-5PM, Thursday – Sunday

(Los Angeles) – The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery and Juxtapoz magazine are pleased to present new works by Robert Williams in Slang Գեղագիտություն! in conjunction with 20 Տարի ազդեցության տակ Juxtapoz, a group exhibition by guest curators Andrew Hosner of Thinkspace Gallery and Gary Pressman of Copro Gallery. Both exhibitions will be on view at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery from February 22nd ապրիլի 19րդ, 2015. These two exhibitions commemorate the 20th anniversary of Juxtapoz magazine, founded by Williams in 1994, and it’s vast influence on several generations of artists.

Robert Williams is widely upheld as the godfather of the low brow and pop surrealist art movements, and with as much frequency denigrated as an irreverent iconoclast among the arbiters of “high” art. As both patriarch and outlaw, Williams’ enduring influence on the New Contemporary movement is undeniable. A true maverick who sought to create vital work that channeled the shifting energies and immediacy of counterculture, from the 60’s onward, Williams’ paintings invoked a return to craftsmanship, figuration and demotic imagery that rejected the elitist tenets of conceptual minimalism. Մեջ 1994 Williams founded Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine and created a platform for this young and insurgent energy on the West Coast; a publication that was dedicated to the underground and to its cultural mutineers. Williams, a self described Conceptual Realist, continues to create artworks that elicit a response and offer an opinion. Relying on concrete, and relatable, imagery to invoke ideas and concepts, rather than on the non-comital spasms of abstraction, his work continues to cut, seethe, confront and move. Not for the faint of heart, Williams speaks an unruly truth that captures the dark, the beautiful and the appalling tenor of our modern world. SLANG! Aesthetics is Robert Williams’ first major body of work to debut in Los Angeles in well over a decade, and will feature 25 new oil paintings by the artist alongside a suite of drawings, and a series of large-scale sculptures fabricated with the assistance of Gentle Giant Studios.

In conjunction with Williams’ new exhibition of work, 20 Տարի ազդեցության տակ Juxtapoz celebrates the publication’s 20th anniversary. What once began as an alternative magazine, Juxtapoz is now the most widely disseminated art publication in the world. Predicated on the rejection of the artificial boundaries that consecrated “high”, Juxtapoz effectively broke down walls to allow young artists a chance at their own history. It is also an ideal that attests to the power of making accessible art about shared cultural experiences, identities and aesthetics. The magazine has helped to define and bring to light one of the most exciting art movements of our time, an incipient movement in 1994 that has now, finally 20 years later, begun to infiltrate the mainstream art markets and institutions from which it had once been excluded. It is also a movement with a massive fan following that attests to the power, and relevance, of making accessible art about shared cultural experiences, identities and aesthetics. The artists featured in this exhibition have been chosen based for their impact on the movement, and on how they themselves have been motivated by such an abundance of inspiration. With access to this imagery and community, new and multifaceted generations of artists continue to emerge from the ranks. Avenues made possible by Juxtapoz, through its wide variety of featured media and expressions, have shaped this aesthetic and preserves its trajectory as far as the imagination will allow.

This exhibition is sponsored in part by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. The LAMAG is located within the beautiful Barnsdall Park at 4800 Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. To contact the gallery please call 323.644.6269. Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday from Noon to 5PM.

Exhibition Catalogues Available

IMG_20141107_162146DCA-commissioned exhibition, Shangri La: Imagined Cities, curated by Rijin Sahakian, provides a critical juxtaposition to Doris Duke’s Shangri La through the presentation of contemporary works that produce a multiplicity of worlds, interpretations, and investigations without ignoring the implications of organizing around particular geographic or religious lines. Sahakian, who was born in Baghdad in 1978, was selected by DCA for her intimate knowledge of the contemporary art scene and pioneering work in the Middle East. Ms. Sahakian’s ambitious curatorial project, along with a companion catalogue, explores issues of travel, mobility, and collection making while reflecting on the journeys that inspired and ignited Doris Duke’s Islamic Art collection. The exhibition provides a powerful framework for discussions around the politics of production and acquisition, and the mechanisms of global capital, power, and violence in the circulation and “making of” individual identities and aesthetics. Imagined Cities artists and their respective works will explore these themes through the mediums of video, տեղակայում, and photography.

 

Accompanying exhibition catalog, Shangri La: Imagined Cities, available at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery for $30. Cash or check only.

 

IMG_20141107_162134DCA’s LAMAG, the only municipal art gallery in the country, will showcase the major traveling exhibition, Doris Duke’s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art, which chronicles how tobacco heiress Doris Duke came to amass an impressive collection of Islamic artworks from throughout the Islamic world. Doris Duke’s Shangri La also showcases how she went on to commission architect Marion Sims Wyeth to build her Shangri La, the five-acre estate in Honolulu to house the collection.

Organized by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art, Doris Duke’s Shangri La was masterminded by curators Donald Albrecht and Thomas Mellins, who interwove architectural documents and vintage photographs along with more than 60 objects from the collection including ceramics, textiles, jewelry, paintings, tile panels, and full-scale architectural elements, to demonstrate a distinct balance between the house and its collection. Interspersed among these artifacts are works by eight former artists-in-residence at Shangri La, who blend Islamic tradition and contemporary practices. A book of stunning new color photographs of the home and gardens taken by nationally recognized Los Angeles photographer Tim Street-Porter accompanies the innovative exhibition.

Accompanying exhibition catalog, Doris Duke’s Shangri La: A House In Paradise, available at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery for $40. Cash or check only.

Շարժվում, մենք պետք է հայտնի հավաքականորեն որպես BARNSDALL Art Park հիմնադրամ (BAPF). Շուրջ վերջին մի քանի տարիների ընթացքում,, երկու Տախտակներ զգալիորեն ընդլայնել մարկետինգային եւ ծրագրավորման ջանքերը պատկերասրահ եւ այգում.
