Hi and low and lower art

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

We have no qualifications for judging art, and we were pretty stumped at the recent MOCA opening of Visual Music. Just as we were trying to determine why so many handsome male couples were leaving looking nonplussed, a gentleman turned to us and asked "This is pretty boring, isn't it?" -- reinforcing our conviction that anyone who's ever been to a rave has seen all this and more. Or maybe watched a rave on TV on one of those gritty dramas like 90210 or The OC. So if high art dipping its toe into not-very-interesting contemporary wall projections isn't your style, you might check out this weekend's benefit for LA's own artUS magazine, an upstart in the art world. Art/performances include grotesqueries from Reverend Al's Art of Bleeding and the audience will surely include many people who know more about art than we do.
