The Other Cheek @ Found Gallery
Several L.A.-based artists present various mediums of art surrounding long-gestating events from the past – be it an older sibling you never got to out-muscle or a perfect stranger who targeted you for no reason, everyone has an unresolved issue they’d love to or need to revisit, in hopes of gaining some closure on the matter. “The Other Cheek” offers this chance. Through Mon 7/2.
Cinespia: Rebel Without a Cause @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery
Ray’s masterpiece of teenage rebellion stars the incomparable James Dean as the new kid in town. Los Angeles locations, hot rod culture and forbidden love embellish this timeless classic. Sal Mineo and Natalie Wood are stellar as Dean’s only friends in his unfamiliar and dangerous surroundings. Gates at 7:30 pm. Movie at 9pm. $10 donation tickets available at gate. DJ John Tripp spins before and after the show.
From L.A. With Love
A celebration of creative collaboration and personal inspiration. Each piece of progressive music is paired with unique artwork collected in a beautiful 28-page color booklet. ArtDontSleep gathered these treasured sounds and sights to give you a glimpse of the greatness found in Los Angeles right now.
I CAN HAS VAR? @ Machine Project
Have you been waiting for an introduction to computer programming? How about an introduction to computer programming using a code-syntax based on the grammatical fantasies and malaprops of adorable cats? Your wait is over!
Panelists III @ GR2
Giant Robot’s annual comics-related group show puts a spotlight on comic creators of all kinds, from stapled-and-folded stars of DIY and veterans of Marvel and DC Comics to art gallery heavyweights. It will feature original comic pages, illustrations, paintings, mixed-media work, and special surprises.
SILENCE = DEATH @ Drkrm.
Commemorating the 20th anniversary of ACT UP/Los Angeles, the exhibition features the work of Chuck Stallard, who documented one of the most dramatic and successful protest groups in recent history. The AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) became a national and world-wide movement, with one of its most effective chapters in Los Angeles. Through Sat 7/21.
Cinespia: Holy Mountain @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery
Surreal, shocking and breathtakingly beautiful, Holy Mountain is the pinnacle of avante-garde filmmaking. The alchemist guides his disciples through a phantasmagoric landscape to the holy mountain so that they may confront the gods. For thirty years the film was not shown theatrically and is only now being rediscovered by new generations. Don’t miss an opportunity to see this rare and beautiful gem under the stars and open sky. Gates at 7:30pm. Movie at 9pm. $10 donation tickets available at gate. DJ Carlos Nino spins before and after the show.
