Get Out: LOST (in LA), Unique LA and Christmas Tree Lightings
METROPOLIS: Today the exhibition LOST (IN LA) opens up at Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park (4800 Hollywood Boulevard). The exhibition is a collaboration between local and French artists. It takes its cues from the TV show of the same name, but it also hopes to reproduce the "quintessential Los Angeles experience of being lost in the heart of this metropolis." The opening reception goes from 2 until 5 pm, and the gallery will be open until January 29. For more information, check out the exhibition's website.
ART: Today is the opening reception for artist Jordan Wolfson's "Raspberry Poser" at REDCAT. The exhibition features a synthesis of digital video, CGI and hand-drawn animation culled from the internet and the real world. The reception goes form 6 until 9 pm, and the exhibition will be open until January 27. For more information, hit up REDCAT's website.
