The notorious Adonis Theater, legendary gay adult movie house closed under homophobic pressure from developers, now “reappears” creatively reimagined as a modern Brigadoon for one night only as artists from the LA queer community descend on Human Resources, also a former adult theater now turned experimental art gallery, to share their hot visions around themes of Gay Sex and Queer Liberation in context of the current state of assimilation, disappearing LGBTQ space and shrinking ghettos. It is a creative activist effort and sexy night of interactive queer entertainment and community which will transform Human Resources into a sexual amusement park of gay art, video and performance. Join us for a night at The Adonis.

Participating artists: Gregory Barnett, Ben Cuevas, Andrew Disorder, David Parke Epstein, Hank Henderson, Hunter, Jason Jenn, Andrea Lambert, David LeBarron, Ricky Luna, Ian MacKinnon, Martin Matamoros, Leopold Nunan, Robert Patrick, Steven Reigns, Jack Shamblin, Vyper SynVille, Evans Vestal Ward, Trevor Wayne, Travis Wood, Rich Yap and more.

Human Resources was founded by a team of creative individuals who seek to broaden engagement with contemporary and conceptual art, with an emphasis on performative and underexposed modes of expression. Human Resources is not-for-profit and seeks to foster widespread public appreciation of the performative arts by encouraging maximum community access. Human Resources also serves as a point of convergence for diverse and disparate art communities to engage in conversation and idea-sharing promoting the sustainability of non-traditional art forms.

Magdalena Fernandez

MOCA Grand Avenue

250 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012

11:00am to 8:00pm

The Museum of Contemporary Art presents Magdalena Fernandez, the first comprehensive mid-career exhibition of Magdalena Fernandez's (b. 1964, Caracas, Venezuela) work. Spanning from 1993 to 2014, the core of this mid-career survey will consist of a number of installations that exemplify the creative approach on which the artist has built a contemporary dialogue with the work of European and Latin American masters of geometric abstraction and will also include sculpture, video photography, drawing, and prints. Her work delves within the language of geometric abstraction, playing with ideas of light, movement, and sound, in context with established abstract and kinetic traditions. Trained in mathematics, physics, and graphic design, Fernandez has also been deeply influenced by the thinking of Italian designer and architect, A.G. Fronzoni, with whom she worked from 1990 until 1993. 

 

September 14 through January 4, 2015, Mondays & Fridays11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Thursdays 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., Saturdays & Sundays 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Soul Jam feat. the Stylistics and the Dramatics

Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE

800 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90015

7:30pm

The Stylistics was formed in Philadelphia, PA in 1966 from two groups, "The Percussions" and "The Monarchs".  When members from each group were drafted or went on to further their education, the remaining members under the guidance of their English teacher Beverly Hamilton joined forces and changed the name to "The Stylistics".  After working locally for a number of years, the group was approached by Bill Perry who asked if they would be interested in recording.  Their first song "You're a Big Girl Now" was recorded at Virtue Recording Studio, a local studio in Philadelphia. After the success of "You're A Big Girl Now", Avco wanted to naturally follow up with an album release. Hit veteran producer Tom Bell was contacted and was hired to produce the group's first album. The album was entitled "The Stylistics" and from that album came "Stop, Look, Listen to your Heart", "You Are Everything" and "Betcha By Golly Wow".  The success of the first album was phenomenal for that time along with an unheard release of six singles in total. The ball continued to roll with the release of their second album entitled "Round Two". The Stylistics were becoming known as the Philly group with the sweet love songs. 

The Dramatics have been one of the most prolific, consistently entertaining groups of the last three decades. Another of the great non-Motown Detroit groups formed in the late 60s. Most know for hits "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" "In The Rain" and "Toast to the Fool" among many others that remain in active play on various stations for many years.
