Your Social Life At Home And Not Too Far From It
So things are going to be a bit busy this weekend again. First of all, tomorrow is the Downtown Art Walk and I'd advise you swing by El Nopal and say hi to my friend Nadege Monchera-Baer who's showing in the company of Pierre Picot. You can't miss Nadege, she's the classiest Frenchy this side of yours truly. Only taller.
Friday is the opening of the Martin Kersels retrospective at the SMMOA. I urge you to brave the hellish Friday traffic and go see his work, and then have a late dinner at the bar at Anisette.
On Saturday you will have to go across town to see the latest show of FBC! chouchou, Edgar Arceneaux at Susanne Vielmetter. You can also go to Regen and see the Raymond Pettibon show. If you're star-struck, last time I went to one of his opening a Regen Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore were in attendance.
And to prolong the evening in a warm atmosphere that doubles with a time-warp, Stephen Kaltenbach is showing his time capsules at anotheryearinla. The good thing (one amongst many) about the latter is that their openings run until 10 PM.
And what of the other days, are you going to ask, dear FBC! readers? Well, you can go to Chapman University see the Los Angeles incarnation of Documental (see pic above) and to Fullerton see the Aspects of Mel's Hole exhibition curated by Doug Harvey. Both opened last week but I got the info after Your Social Life went up.
Have a great, art-filled weekend!
