Happy Holidays to everyone. We have added events for the Last half of April. We will add one more update for April to be be posted by the 24th. Be sure to check back. 

My husband and I recently returned from a fabulous weekend trip to Paso Robles…keeping in line with the whole solomoon trend (separate vacations), we each planned to enjoy one day on our own…but we did enjoy the trip together (and many romantic moments). On that day, we decided to do what each of us likes to do best. Richie chose to arise at 4am and photograph the wildflowers in Carrizo Plain National Monument, while I chose to go wine-tasting. I’m sure you could have guessed that, right? Drinking wine is my favorite thing to do.

April 25, 2019:
An experience with Urs Fischer’s PLAY is not an encounter with inert objects, but a dance with capricious partners. Nine office chairs of differing colors and with mercurial personalities zoom around a gallery, each inviting the viewer into an impenetrable pas de deux. The chairs, constructed masses of wires and sensors, are equipped with a functioning AI that determines and learns from each encounter they have. As the exhibition progresses, their actions will become more and more refined until they eventually become so graceful that their artificial origin can be obscured. PLAY is a technologically advanced work, yet it is one that seeks to transcend the novelty of its creation.
April25-2019- Jeffrey Deitch-Play
PLAY, conceived of by Urs Fischer with choreography by Madeline Hollander, opens on April 25th and runs through June 15th; Opening: 6-8pm; Jeffrey Deitch, 925 N. Orange Drive, LA ,90038;
