FESTIVAL: The Llano Del Rio Collective will be hosting a festival to celebrate the release of "An Antagonist’s Guide to The Assholes of Los Angeles." The festival will take place on the street corner in front of Human Resources in Chinatown. Guests are encouraged to bring photos of an antagonist (they suggest Donald Trump, Bank of America, you or your big mouth). These will then be taped on the wall as part of a self-performance art piece. The event goes from 1 pm until 3 pm, and more information can be found here.

ART: Take a journey through the early Ming dynasty through ten masterpieces that were painted circa 15th and early 16th centuries in the Forbidden City. Visitors will be able to experience a selection of Zhe School paintings from the Shanghai Museum's permanent collection. The exhibit opens today in the Hammer Building on Level Two. It will run until June. More information can be accessed here.

COMEDY: A staple of the New York downtown stand-up scene is coming to Cinefamily tonight. "Heart of Darkness" is a psychedelic showcase" that includes comedy, live music and fringe science. Tonight's show will feature Reggie Watts, Everything is Terrible!, Rory Scovel, Kate Berlant, Greg Barris and more. Tickets are $12 and you can buy them here.
