Surface to Air: Los Angeles Artists of the '60s
Ed Ruscha, the L.A. icon known for bold pop paintings and for photographing every building on the Sunset Strip, made a film in 1975 called Miracle. In it, a mechanic gets progressively more obsessed with getting the '65 Mustang he's working on to run, standing up a girlfriend (played by Michelle Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas) and then alienating a friend. "What are you doing over there? A heart transplant?" the friend jokes before being stiffed. The film plays on a screen in a hallway as part of Kayne Griffin Corcoran's "Surface to Air" exhibition. 1201 S. La Brea Ave., Mid-City; through July 5. (310) 586-6886, kaynegriffincorcoran.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 17. Continues through July 5, 2014 (Expired: 07/05/14)
