Deck the Walls 

Wednesday, May 22 2013

The Lab is known for supporting experimental artists, and they've brought this approach to their latest fundraiser. Limited at the Lab is an artist-friendly art auction. Participating artists were given labor and materials by The Lab, and then asked to contribute to a print portfolio or limited edition. In return, they receive a full set of limited editions by other artists in the auction, and a decent chunk of the sale price. Many of the exclusive works hold on long after the viewer has looked away; Tammy Rae Carland's I'm Dying Up Here (Cone Head) speaks to the frustration of the human condition with a solo figure poised atop a ladder, her face obscured by a beige, oblong cone. Gareth Spor's untitled work carries a mellow psychedelia and Ala Ebtekar's painting of a barely visible figure recalls a soldier in deep contemplation. Prints, limited editions, and live auction pieces are also provided by Anthony Discenza, Desiree Holman, Ajit Chauhan, Maggie Haas, Facundo Argañaraz, and Michelle Blade, among others, and the art is priced for collectors at all levels.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
