    Shefali Mistry leads Michelada Think Tank event on artists of color

  • 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.

Public Practice Chair Suzanne Lacy's Performance on Gender-Based Violence Featured by Huffington Post

In Ecuador, roughly one in six women have experienced physical, sexual or psychological violence. To put it another way, 3 million Ecuadorians have counted themselves a victim of gender-based violence in their lifetime. According to the same Pan American Health Organization research, 38 percent of women in Ecuador have been physically abused, 26 percent sexually abused, and 17 percent have been victims of patrimonial violence. These statistics, however bleak, are still merely numbers. Numbers that look eerily similar to statistics across the globe.

Laddie John Dill to light up Laguna Beach with "Electric Light Blanket"

High above Main Beach, a series of red, blue and purple lasers danced on the sand in silence.

The colors reflected in every direction imaginable, spanning miles of the coastline.

As artist Laddie John Dill tested the laser light exhibit on a recent Wednesday night, he was hoping mist would rise above the ocean near the shore. The haze would help make the laser beams all the more visible.

"You see how the colors pick up on the edge?" Dill asked. "It'll be quite amazing."
