  • High&Low Bureau is a curatorial duo composed of Yael Messer and Gilad Reich. They curate exhibitions, film programs, performative events and publications, while engaging with a plethora of disciplines, media and modes of artistic expression.Their curatorial practice is dedicated to the exploration of artistic strategies that reflect on, and suggest alternatives to, specific social-political conditions.

  • Los Angeles is a city often described as having no center. Its art community has turned that "disadvantage" into an advantage and given itself a license for adventure. Organizations, galleries, and artists find decentralization to be an exciting option and they establish their addresses in unexpected neighborhoods and zones in the city and even beyond, in other cities and states. What are the challenges and advantages of this programmatic and conceptual strategy? What are the risks, to organization and audience alike? Is this necessary, and if so, is it sustainable?

Eduardo Lucero

Eduardo LuceroEduardo LuceroEduardo LuceroEduardo Lucero

 

Among fashionistas, Los Angeles designer Eduardo Lucero ('87) is a red carpet favorite, stemming in part from his celebration of the sensual Latin-American culture of his origins.

At his shop on Beverly Boulevard, Lucero crafts lovely, flattering, personalized couture gowns. In the front, the shop displays a rotating selection from the season's collection. In the back is Lucero's studio, complete with cutting tables, mannequins, glossy satins and exquisite deep velvets. His specialty: decidedly feminine evening wear. Burnout velvet halters and long, bias-cut skirts drape incredibly smoothly, and suits hug without strangling bodies.
The body that fits into these clothes needn't be emaciated - Lucero designs for unabashedly curvaceous women.

Over the years, Lucero has been involved with numerous runway shows and gala events. He presented new work during "Fashion Week in L.A." And his tie-dyed gown design set a glamorous tone at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios in Culver City. Gen Art Chicago, a leader in showcasing the newest emerging talent in fashion and art, held their 2nd annual Fresh Faces in Fashion runway show, which included Lucero along with the hottest new designers from Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in womenswear and accessories. Lucerno also won the Asia Pacific Young Fashion Designers Show in Hong Kong.
