Small Museum for the American Metaphor

REDCAT

631 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

4:00pm

Small Museum for an American Metaphor is an exhibition which brings together European perspectives on the American West, and more specifically, the particularities embedded in the idealized fictions surrounding it. The visual argument here is that there is a certain architectonic “idea” that dwells on the celebration of Endlessness as mythicized in the American West. The metaphor is the base for an architecture that blurs the distinction between building and object, collapsing the different scales. It is an architecture that celebrates the fiction of the “wide open” and seeks to re-evaluate/reinterpret the world as a gigantic interior. In that context, a successful intervention is able to define hierarchies, carve out places, and make shared points of reference. The exhibition, much in the tradition of showcasing objects in a defined space, such as a cabinet, “collects”artworks, architectural models, drawings and other elements that consciously fade the distinction between object and representation.

Ultimately it is a show on urban strategies, but starting from the conviction that these very strategies can only be conveyed if presented in an oblique way. The show proposes a method that understands beauty and hedonism not so much as the enemy of hierarchy and organization, but despite all senses of responsibility, its driving force.

Jamie Scott

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

7:00pm

Guided by the confessional, heart-on-sleeve honesty he’s cherished since falling in love with Joni Mitchell’s Blue as a child, Scott threw himself into exploring the nature of unconditional love and all its accompanying joys, anxieties, and inevitable heartbreak in songwriting for My Hurricane. “This is the first record I’ve ever made where the whole time I was thinking, ‘I don’t care if anyone ever even hears this, I’m just desperate to write this piece of music,’” says Scott, who composed most of the album on piano and guitar at home in England.
