WAVEFORM features four time-based installations that explore human perception of light and sound. Curated by CultureHub LA, WAVEFORM is the first installment in a series of group exhibitions presenting Los Angeles artists exploring innovative storytelling through emerging technology. Works investigate the interaction and translation between sound frequencies and light wavelengths, and propose new forms of agency in non-physical environments and in relation to intangible elements. Laura Sofía Pérez and Chris Ryan Williams present I Ain’t Got No Spare, a performative and interactive installation exploring themes of the Black experience and the ephemerality of Black agency, using Los Angeles as a case study. Josephine Wang presents Spectrum, a multimedia installation converging sound and light in a performative environment, live-animating visible light spectrum with a wall of 800 LEDs through an algorithmic translation of audible sound frequencies. Lisa Müller-Trede presents collider getting sick, a short virtual situation investigating impact as motoric guidance, as the body oozes in between. Laura Sofía Pérez presents Grew Out the Concrete, a video installation that captures the afternoon lights and shadows cast on the sidewalks of City Terrace, Los Angeles through a slow-motion journey. On opening night (September 14th @ 5 pm & 7:30 pm), the pieces will be activated through live performance. WAVEFORM is open to the public free of charge between September 14th - September 19th. Please visit the SHATTO Gallery website (www.shattogallery.com) for gallery visiting hours
Loop‘Dangerous Women’ is a celebration and a conversation between these two great artists.

The works echo and compliment each other in a dynamic way as they challenge and redefine the meaning of intimacy, femininity and immortality. In addition to several original paintings by both artists, the event will also feature sculptures by Xu Darocha from her Kings & Queens and Moon Rocks series.

The Biddy Mason Charitable Foundation and Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation-Los Angeles are proud to present a Wreath Laying Ceremony in honor of Bridget “Biddy” Mason. As a visionary philanthropist and the first Black woman to purchase land in Los Angeles, Biddy was an instrumental figure and foremother to the development of our city. Despite Biddy Mason’s wealth, prominence, and service at the time of her death, Biddy was buried for nearly 100 years in an unmarked grave at Evergreen Cemetery in Boyle Heights. As a way to commemorate her legacy we will gather at Biddy’s resting place on her birthday to remember her story of resilience that continues to inspire us today. At the wreath-laying ceremony, we will hear from local historians, community leaders and honor Biddy’s life with a birthday cake! To register, please visit our website.

Universal Studios was the undisputed master of horror and the macabre during the 1930s and 40s. The Alex Film Society celebrates the Halloween season with two films featuring the studios’ most popular stars…Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. The Old Dark House (1932) was assumed to be a lost classic until a film negative was discovered in the Universal vaults in 1968. It has since assumed cult-like status among fans of director James Whale, who helmed Frankenstein (1931), and Bride of Frankenstein (1935). Whale packed his offbeat take on horror with star talent including Melvyn Douglas, Charles Laughton, Raymond Massey, Gloria Stuart and of course Karloff. AFS will be screening a glorious new 4K digital restoration. The Raven (1935) teams Karloff with his frequent onscreen nemesis, Bela Lugosi. The picture highlights Edgar Allen Poe’s famous poem and features Lugosi as a Poe-obsessed mad surgeon who just happens to have a torture chamber in his basement. Karloff is a fugitive murderer on the lam who falls victim to Lugosi’s mad schemes. Both actors were at the height of their fame, making this fast-paced thriller one of Universal’s best offerings.

The Chasing Grace Project is a docuseries about adversity and resilience among women in the technology industry. Its candid approach to storytelling has been applauded for elevating women’s voices in an industry that has fewer women than 30 years ago (NCWIT) but desperately needs women’s contributions to build the technologies that are defining our future. It uses the power of story to change the culture in tech, which is cited as the primary reason women don’t pursue tech careers or choose to leave. Strayed’s own story, as detailed in her memoir WILD and major motion picture produced by and starring Reese Witherspoon, is among the best examples of the power of story for women. By stepping into her authentic story, Strayed’s own life and career have been transformed and her journey through adversity to resilience depicted in her memoir can inspire others. Strayed’s involvement in the Chasing Grace Project will increase awareness of women in tech’s experiences, which can lead to cross-industry conversations that empower all women around the world.

Westley's work alludes to a mental space, most likely on a screen reﬂecting back at you, which compounds into a physical space, such as a list of handwritten hashtags or an intimate selﬁe snapped in some exotic bathroom beyond. That place between one’s mind and body is the vortex of the show. INTERIOR/EXTERIOR ponders our inherited confusion of contemporary perspective. In Westly’s paintings exist a universe of conﬁrmation bias, skewed planes, disjointed landscapes, and pixelated architecture; an odalisque cuddling with HelloKitty, a patio table set before a pop-up window selling sex, and a Greco-Roman muse precariously balanced in front of an African American ﬁeld worker, likely a slave. In these paintings, Westly visually walks the viewer back to a cozy place in Plato’s cave and describes to the children of the internet yet another way to comb through mediated reality. Exhibition on display until December 21, 2019.
