eventsclubsartculture

A new site called eventsclubsartsculture.com has just gone live. It’s focusing on things going on downtown and doesn’t seem to have a lot of content on it yet. It does have a SUPER annoying pop-up Windows Media file, so watch out. Otherwise, might be something to add to your “Los Angeles” bookmarks, or might not.

  1. Speaking of cultural events in LA (though not in Downtown per se), there’s a “Diane Arbus Revelations” exhibition going on until 05/31 at LACMA.

    With nearly 200 of her most significant photographs, it is the most complete presentation of her work ever assembled and includes shots that have never been shownh publicly.

    If you’re a fan of photography or the human condition, this is the show to check out.

    Plus, it’s more than just her photos — the display of contact sheets, cameras, letters, notebooks, and other writings, as well as books from Arbus’s personal library help to expose herworking method and intellectual influences.

    Her “contemporary anthropology”-portraits of couples, children, carnival performers, nudists, middle-class families, transvestites, people on the street, zealots, eccentrics, and celebrities-stands an exploration of the relationship between appearance and identity, illusion and belief, theater and reality – perfect fodder for those of us in LA-LA land.

    For details on hours/tickets or more Arbus info visit http://www.lacma.org/info/press/arbuspr.htm

    Also, note there are 2 other photo exhibitions going on, one at MOCA and one at the Armand Hammer.
