Alex Edelman at Meltdown Comics

Alex Edelman is a quintessential Millennial: born between the mid-80s and early 00s, an active Twitter account, a job his parents disapprove of – seriously can’t get more Millennial than that.

We give a lot of love to LACMA, arguably the landmark museum of Miracle Mile, but often overlook its equally worthwhile (though in very different ways) neighbor, the Page Museum. The slightly monolithic stone-white building nestled in the hill behind La Brea’s famed Tar Pits is a wonderful destination for families, science lovers, and budding […]

Chris Burden’s “Ode to Santos Dumont” at LACMA

Chris Burden, the prolific artist who died unexpectedly last week of melanoma, has one last wonder to show us. Although his early work was dominated by confrontation and violence – he’s been shot point-blank onstage (intentionally), took a TV host hostage at knifepoint, and was once kicked down two flights of stairs to commemorate Art […]

What’s Up With That Billboard?

You know the one. Or perhaps you don’t – it’s so innocuous, you’d be forgiven for not noticing that the small billboard above Undefeated‘s 1st & La Brea brick and mortar has spent more than a decade without a single advertisement. Instead, the billboard has hosted dozens genuine art pieces over the years, a novel […]
