  • Rendering female models and celebrities on large-scale canvases and with quick, expressive brushstrokes, painter Katherine Bernhardt examines representations of beauty in mainstream media and fashion photography. She paints her subjects with severe, exaggerated features and emaciated limbs that sometimes morph into abstraction, recalling the works of Pablo Picasso. “Some people ask if I hate the models I paint,” she says. “I say no, I don't hate them.

  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

In conjunction with Otis’ Creative Action program, Big City Forum presents a series of discussions featuring individuals who actively reinvent social space and redefine how we engage with each other.

BCF asks artists, writers, architects, designers, musicians, and curators to reflect on how they currently live, what they've learned through experience, and what they'd like to pass along to others. Through dialog we seek to identify the connections that run through our creative processes and daily lives. We intend to tell the story of Los Angeles through the words and work of its most inventive participants.

The first panel scheduled for Thursday, February 20th addresses the collaborative process between a trans-disciplinary curator, an olfaction artist, and a contemporary arts writer.
