Art Los Angeles Contemporary Art Fair

So, I still have to check out the Lego structure that is the Pacific Design Center. It's quite hard to get twenty four dollars or at any sixteen dollars for an art fair entrance. Especially, when your parents don't believe that art is a savvy career choice or, even a good past time hobby. And I'm a lonesome twenty year old girl without a job.

There's hope for us out there!!

Last night out of whim, I found myself at Chinatown's Chung King Road. I'm still debating if it was an excuse for taro cakes, lotus leaf cookies, and greasy dumplings, or if I was really there to write about the great galleries you'll find at Chung King. Great galleries, that were close because 1. It was over 6 pm and 2. Most galleries were closed, due to re-installation. Most of them will soon be open in February. I'm happy to have gone late; Sometimes, events really do happen for a reason.

Stephen Cohen has nothing on Tim Fleming, ha-ha. Loving how there's many events going on around town, in conjunction with the fair.

Tonight, you can't miss the events going on at Chung King Road!. "It's going down"... Yes, I said: IT'S GOING DOWN. And yes, now i feel slightly uncomfortable.


The Public School : The Fuck'ed Up Drawing Party at 5pm!

Happy Lion: 7:30pm - The Happy Lion will present the premiere of Torch Trouble, a new performance piece by Joe Sola and Michael Webster. Sola’s highly physical performances use slapstick, live music, and Dada-ist abstraction to hilarious results.

A Contemporary Art Fair topped with Life

I have an uncanny love and tendency for the wee hours of the night. My writing gets the best of me, my thinking flows freely, and my mind is most at peace when I find that all of those in my home are not yelling at each other across a full dinner table, or ranting, but silent. Silent in the art of sleep.

So, I've been writing non stop for about two hours now. Not tired, but concerned for my plans later on today...

At the end of summer last year, we witnessed the first Annual Malibu Annual Contemporary Art Fair and this year Stephen Cohen's Art L.A. was missed, but on a ride of a controversial roller coaster we are introduced to Art Los Angeles Contemporary which was brought to us by Fair Grounds, which is..... I won't go on.

A full review on my thoughts will be posted soon. My plans were to post my thoughts on the event before I actually attended the event, but I figured that no one reads this anyways.

Here are the details, see you there!

P.S. I'm really hoping that my loneliness will stay out of the way this weekend!

In Bloom

After much thought on starting an art blog, I have decided to finally make it happen. My love for the arts: history, visuals, collectives, and so on was injected upon me at an early age. Growing up my mentor Morgan Simon enriched my mind through the arts, by visiting art museums and always making pit stops at Malibu to soak in the Californian sunset, for the sake of my sanity, I suppose. Here’s the beginning. May it bring me joy and peace within the confronts of my mind.

“You are so young… so much before all the beginning, and I would like to beg you, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now,because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer" -Rainer Maria Rilke
