Stanley Kubrick

Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs at the Skirball Cultural Center is an intriguing exhibition exploring the formative phase in the career of Stanley Kubrick, who became one of the twentieth century’s most influential figures in cinematic history.

With his uncanny photographic sensibility, the teen was already scouting human-interest stories for Look magazine and sold his first photograph to them when he was just 17. In his photographs, many unpublished, Kubrick trained the camera on his native city, drawing inspiration from the nightclubs, street scenes, and sporting events that made up his first assignments and capturing the pathos of ordinary life with a sophistication that belied his young age. He produced work that was far ahead of his time and focused on themes that would inspire him throughout his creative life.

Organized by the Museum of the City of New York, the photographs are drawn from its Look magazine archive, following the famed filmmaker as he developed his talent for storytelling and honed his visual style in Look assignments that offer a kaleidoscopic view of city life, from the gritty to the glamorous. In these images of celebrities and everyday people alike, Kubrick revealed the hundreds of human dramas unfolding at any moment.

Sneakertopia

Sneakertopia is now on view

Sneakertopia

  • By Cyntia Lum

Born in the USA the iconic Sneaker has been around since 1892 when the U.S. Rubber Company came up with a canvas topped rubber sneaker called Keds. Now, more than 100 year later, Sneakertopia celebrates one of the most unique cultural phenomenons of this generation. Guests step into a world of Sneakers and all of its connected cultures; sports, music, film, art, design, and fashion.

Collectors have sneaker vaults to house their prized possessions. Online auctions resell sneakers globally and Sotheby’s recently auctioned off a 1972 Nike Waffle Racing Flat “Moon Shoe” for $437.500. Entering the exhibit you are surrounded by a fully enveloping mural wrapping the walls, and floor depicting the rich history of sneaker culture.

Play in a teenage sneakerhead’s bedroom that looks like it was ripped straight out of a comic book.  Relax in a chair made of basketballs. Jump on a 20’ skateboard as skate legends Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero and Lizzie Armanto soar above you. Window shop in the first store of the fictional Frugal brand. The Art and Sole Gallery showcases artists who have infused their passion for sneakers into their body of work, from custom kicks to sneaker sculptures.

Sensational murals featuring favorite sports icons; The Back Lot featuring film and sneakers and The Festival: Sneakers x Music. This is a fun look into an American led global movement.

No need to travel 2500 miles and spend hundreds of dollars to experience the music, culture, and dance of Hawaii. This month The Broad Stage brings the islands to you with HAWAIIAN ‘OHANA, a performance the entire family will enjoy followed by fun hands on activities on the Plaza.

Headlining the show are The Daniel Ho Trio led by six-time Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter, and ukulele virtuoso Daniel Ho, and the famed Hālau Hula Keali’i o Nālani hula dance company. Based on their original musical, Pineapple Mango, you’ll listen to Hawaiian and English language songs and discover the traditions and meanings behind the classic hula dances.

‘Ohana translates to family in the Hawaiian language but it means so much more as you’ll discover through fascinating songs, dances, stories and legends surrounding the history, foods, and culture of the islands.

Hawaii-born Ho studied at the Grove School of Music in LA.  He is a multi-talent musician, arranger, producer, composer…and designer of musical instruments.  Ho’s many collaborations have transcended genres beyond traditional and modern Hawaiian to world music, classical guitar and riffs with Japanese rock duo B’z. Internationally acclaimed teacher, dancer, and choreographer, Kumu Hula Keali’i Ceballos directs the hula dance company based in LA.

W|ALLS: Defend, Divide, and the Divine at the Annenberg Space for Photography examines the artistic, social, and political use of walls throughout history. From the Berlin Wall and Jerusalem’s Western Wall, to the Great Wall of China – as well as barriers built in India, Nigeria, Uzbekistan, Northern Ireland, and along the United States’ southern border – the exhibition delves into our long history of building walls and defining territories.

Complex, challenging, and immersive the exhibit takes visitors on a historical tour investigating civilization’s relationship with barriers, both real and imagined. The exhibit is divided into six sections: Delineation, Defense, Deterrent, The Divine, Decoration, and The Invisible. In each section, the work of photographers and artists – who have trained their eye on walls of all kinds throughout the world – will examine their architectural role in society, and the effects they have on the people who live near them.

“The Annenberg Space for Photography has a long history of exploring our shared humanity around the world,” said Annenberg Foundation Chairman, President, and CEO Wallis Annenberg. ”The W|ALLS exhibit will encourage visitors to explore the complex and multifaceted use of walls and challenge preconceived notions of why we build them.
