Two crazy Questions With A Visitor happened this week, both of which we did not think we had a chance in hell of booking. One was with famed and acclaimed Japanese designer and architect Kenya Hara about his Architecture fo Dogs show that is currently on view at the Long Beach Museum of Art. The other was with Jan-Patrick Schmitzof, the President of Montblanc, about his involvement with bringing 24 Hour Plays and Urban Arts Partnership to Los Angeles. Both were in town for quick visits and we (Somehow!) had the chance to speak with them about what their thoughts are on the city.
There’s a group of students at UCLA who have been producing an arts journal that they’re hoping will bring all the arts together to work together. It’s called GRAPHITE and their most recent issue is just out and is all about movement. There’s a Miranda July interview and some rad artwork–and it’s all done by undergrads. We’re super impressed with this and can’t wait to see more from them.
