  • The American philosopher George Santayana once noted that beauty is far more central to our everyday lives than it is in philosophy. And true enough, aesthetics has always been a sort of fringe discipline within philosophy, lower in status than such fields as metaphysics, ethics, and theory of knowledge. In this lecture, Contemporary American philosopher Graham Harman will explain why this usual picture is mistaken, and show why aesthetics deserves to stand at the very center of philosophy.

  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

Calendar

Graduate Public Practice presented an exhibition of work by graduates, A Mess and a Pleasure: Practicing in Public at ForYourArtForYourArt, 6020 Wilshire Blvd, L.A. 90036 through May 11, 2012.

The work represents translations from art projects within varied geographies of Los Angeles, and explore the relationship between spaces of communities and spaces of art in a wide range of media and topics. The common impulse concerns envisioning an art practice that reaches outside of the gallery to comment upon, or engage with, new public(s) for art.

Public events in conjunction with this exhibition included a myth-making workshop, a dream group, a workshop on envisioning new uses for alleys, a conversation and art critique by and with Chinese international students, a Highway 99 pit stop video screening, and a panel discussion on social practice and the creative economy with President Samuel Hoi and Bettina Korek, Founder of ForYourArt

ForYourArt produces and hosts activities at 6020 Wilshire Blvd. to promote engagement with art, Los Angeles, and the Miracle Mile as part of its broad mission to create content to frame and support the activities of artists, curators, and institutions.
