= Micol Hebron‘s The (en)Gendered (in)Equity: The Gallery Poster Project

March 29­–April 25 at ForYourArt

6020 Wilshire Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, March 29 from 6-9pm

Timed to open during Women’s History Month, the exhibition features over 250 posters, each created by a different artist, representing the gender ratios at Los Angeles and New York art galleries. (en)Gendered (in)Equity or “Gallery Tally” is a crowd-sourced, social engagement art project in which over 500 artists from around the world have joined the effort to collect and visualize statistical data regarding ratios of male and female artists in contemporary art galleries. Artists were invited to make one poster for each gallery, in whatever style or medium they chose. All posters are 24” x 36”.

While it is a common assumption that there is a male-biased imbalance in gender representation in the art world, the data for galleries–the actual numbers of artists–have not been visualized and publicized since the Guerrilla Girls’ efforts in the 1980s. The Gallery Tally follows a strategically collaborative working model that has been common among feminists and activists for decades.

Having started in Los Angeles, the project is now in its second phase, focusing on galleries in New York. Subsequent visualizations will include Berlin, London, Chicago, Santa Fe, Portland, Pittsburg, and other cities. www.gallerytally.tumblr.com

_"Platforms & PAINT" an all-female multidisciplinary art show, January 18th – February 22, 2013.
Opening Reception Saturday, January 18th 7pm-11pm
The Gabba Gallery 3126 Beverly Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90057

Artist talk on February 1st. Deborah Picker Vankin of Los Angeles Times Events Los Angeles Times " Culture Monster" will be moderating a Talk with our featured artists including: Alisa Yang, Allie Pohl, Andrea LaHue, Isabelle Alford-Lago, Karin Lindberg Freda, Jaime Becker, Jennifer Korsen, Joanna DeGeneres, Mary Hanson, Miri Chais, N.S. David and more. Will be a fantastic, entertaining evening. 7-11pm

Platforms are not just shoes women wear; it is also a place to voice an opinion. Paint is the most recognized medium in art, but it is also a term that relates to putting on make-up, thus the title, “Platforms and PAINT” came into being.

The Gallery is proud to curate a show in which women artists are the theme. The fact is - women are sadly underrepresented in galleries and museums worldwide. The artwork will showcase artists from various disciplines from sculpture to street art sharing the same space.

Alisa Yang, Allie Pohl, Allison Isenberg, Andrea LaHue aka Random Act, Essi Zimm, Hannah Streety, Ingrid Allen, Isabelle Alford-Lago, Karin Lindberg Freda, Jaime Becker, Jaw Cooper, Jennifer Korsen, Joanne DeGeneres, Mary Josephine Hanson, Miri Chais, Nicole Bruckman, N.S.David aka N Solis David.

_ DRAWING (Los Angeles) at Another year in LA gallery.
May 17, 5pm– 8pm. 2012 LA Times review

In 2012, Another Year in LA is mounting three survey exhibitions, Painting(January – March), Sculpture and now…DRAWING (Los Angeles) that exemplifyartists working locally (Los Angeles and California, respectively).

Each exhibition is exploring an aspect of the way that each artist makes an important contribution to their discipline; Painting, Sculpture and Drawing, from how work occupies space in the gallery to how each artist determines focus and direction in their art making process.

DRAWING (Los Angeles) opens this week featuring works by : Jackie Freedman, JohnKnuth, Stas Orlovski, Christopher Russell and Alisa Yang .– all are based in LosAngeles.

Mark-making has been a part of the human DNA since the beginning of time and the range of work in this exhibition celebrates that act. Most of what could be considered drawing is explored in this exhibition from traditional graphite on paper (Jackie Freedman and Stas Orlovski) to the marring of the image with a knife scratching the surface (Christopher Russell) to collage with pen & ink(Alisa Yang) to drawing on canvas with an ignited automobile flare (John Knuth) - this exhibition explores the action of mark-making with exuberance.

_ The Patter of Tiny Brains curated by Doug Harvey 2012, 323projects
For this group show sourced from dozens of contributors, Harvey presents a rotating selection of audio generated by children, up to and including adolescents.

Visitors who call into 323 Projects’ phone number will hear audio ranging from baby noises to musical performances, and a variety of surprising sound recordings performed by kids. In presenting the work of children, Harvey encourages listeners to bring serious, respectful aesthetic attention to works of performance otherwise disregarded as immature and amateur. This exhibition challenges value systems that deem children's creative output trivial or inconsequential, and instead critically and enthusiastically seeks to reframe the discourse surrounding notions of youth, professionalism, and creative expression.

323 Projects invites you to hear The Patter of Tiny Brains by calling

(323) 843-4652 or (323) TIE-IN-LA

The show is open all day and all night, every day of the week. Visitors are encouraged to call back often to hear audio tracks, as works will rotate throughout the course of the exhibition.
