Noir: The Romance of Black in 19th-Century French Drawings and Prints

Getty Center

1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049

2:00pm

Beginning around 1840, French artists began depicting shadowy, often nocturnal or twilight scenes in which forms emerge and sink back into darkness. This quest for darkened realms accompanied an exploration of new forms of subject matter, such as dream states and nonidealized representations of the poor and working class, and new black drawing materials, such as man-made charcoal, black chalk, and conté crayon. Using drawings and prints from the Getty's permanent collection and loans from private and public Los Angeles collections, this exhibition examines how artists such as Rodolphe Bresdin, Maxime Lalanne, Odilon Redon, and Georges Seurat championed these new, dark subjects.

Eurythmics Frontman, Dave Stewart, in conversation with KCRW’s Gary Calamar

Skirball Center

2701 North Sepulveda Boulevard Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA 90049

8:00pm

Dave Stewart’s life has been a wild ride one filled with music, constant reinvention, and the never-ending drive to create. Growing up in industrial northern England, he left home for the gritty London streets of the seventies, where he began collaborating and performing with various musicians, including a young waitress named Annie Lennox.   The chemistry between Stewart and Lennox was undeniable, and an intense romance developed. While their passion proved too much offstage, they thrived musically and developed their own sound. They called themselves Eurythmics and launched into global stardom with the massively popular album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).

For the first time, Stewart shares the incredible, high-octane stories of his life in music the drug-fueled adventures, the A-list collaborations and relationships, and the creative process that brought us blockbusters from Eurythmics like Here Comes the Rain Again and Would I Lie to You as well as Tom Petty’s Don’t Come Around Here No More, No Doubt’s Underneath It All, Golden Globe winner Old Habits Die Hard with Mick Jagger, and many more.
