  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a reactive experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

  • Angie Bray is something of a Renaissance woman with a wide range of artistic abilities and interests encouraged and enriched by her upbringing and her liberal arts education. She spent her childhood in the countryside outside Philadelphia where she attended a girls’ school that emphasized music, drama, and art in addition to academics. She studied at La Sorbonne in Paris and earned a Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College in New York, followed by a Masters in Education from Harvard University in Massachusetts.

Norman M. Klein, Freud in Coney Island and Other Tales

 

To enter, one had to pass through “Creation,” a music-hall version of Genesis. Creation began at the mouth of a huge tunnel, featuring the massive thighs and vagina of a plaster nude thirty feet high. Her breasts were larger than haystacks. She sparked at least two sentences. A phrase from one survives, in the recently uncovered Freud Ephemera: “…or do Americans prefer genitalia large enough to crush a man, or at least ruin his hat?”

 

Norman M. Klein is a cultural critic, urban and media historian, and a novelist. His books include: The History of Forgetting: Los Angeles and the Erasure of Memory (1997), Seven Minutes: The Life and Death of the American Animated Cartoon (1996), the data/cinematic novel, Bleeding Through: Layers of Los Angeles, 1920-86 (2003), and The Vatican to Vegas: The History of Special Effects (2004). He is professor of critical studies at CalArts, and an adjunct professor at ULSA and Art Center College of Design.
