Movement for Speculative Quantum Bodies with Anna Martine Whitehead: Anna Martine will lead participants through a movement and discussion-based exploration of blackness and speculative fiction. Beginning with a brief presentation on Quantum Mechanics, Speculative Fiction, and Queer and Trans Black Materiality, the workshop will extend into movement, guided meditation, and contemplative (or a-contemplative) exploration of anatomy. Together, we’ll begin working to figure out where our bodies begin and end, and what is beyond our corporeal limits. Participants should come prepared to move and engage; this workshop is about liberation.
Where: LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions), 6522 Hollywood Blvd., LA 90028
When: Class 12-3 pm; Reception 5-8pm.

Kayne Griffin Corcoran is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by James Turrell, his fifth with the gallery over the last decade. The exhibition will include three major, large-scale Elliptical Glass works as well as a selection of unique graphic works taken from Aten Reign, the large work created for the atrium of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2013.

The Elliptical Glass series developed out of Turrell’s larger group of Tall Glass works, begun in 2006, was significant in its introduction of a temporal element. Over a two-and-a-half-hour time period the unique composition sweeps through thousands of different color themes. Across the Elliptical Glass’s plane light gently diffuses to make the shallow space indeterminable to the eye. Vivid combinations of colors seep into and against each other as they slowly shift over time, this change moving so softly as to be at first barely perceptible to the eye.
On view: November 8th – January 16th, 2016
What: Opening reception
Where: Kayne Griffin Corcoran, 1201 South La Brea Ave., LA (between Olympic and San Vincente.
