  • Performance : Proust in one hour

    by Véronique Aubouy

    Duration : 60 minutes chrono

    In this performance I try to summarize in 60 minutes In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

LA County supervisors want more diversity in LA arts

At least two Los Angeles County supervisors want more diversity in the exhibits, shows and displays at Los Angeles arts institutions to attract a more varied audience.

Supervisors Hilda Solis and Mark Ridley-Thomas will ask their colleagues on the Board of Supervisors Tuesday to approve a motion that will establish an advisory group that will make recommendations to enhance participation and leadership from “underrepresented communities” in the arts.

CE Graduate Eva Chow Named the Culture Queen of Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES — I first met Eva Chow — encountered would actually be a better term — in 2013 in the courtyard of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It was the museum’s third Art & Film Gala, and Mrs. Chow, a host with Leonardo DiCaprio, was working the room like a piranha in a goldfish bowl. Air kisses with François-Henri Pinault. Chitchat with Jane Fonda. An excited wave to Ed Ruscha.

LA Weekly Dives into the Otis Report on the Creative Economy

Entertainment Leads a Creative Economy Worth $293.8 Billion to California

By Dennis Romero
 
We criticize Hollywood a lot. It's a white bubble of an industry in a city that is majority brown. And its moguls and creatives are helping to push our cost of living, including sky-high rents and home prices, through the roof.
 
But the entertainment industry does bring dollars to our community. That's a fact.
