MOCA Needs Our Help

I have recently read with great dismay about the recent financial crisis at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). I urge everyone to get involved and help this beloved institution. MOCA means alot to me. It is where I fell in love with contemporary art. It holds a dear place in my heart. I think LA would not be the world art center it is today without it. So please help.

Join the museum on its website. www.moca.org

or Join the Facebook MOCA Mobilization Page to help.

Machine Project at LACMA, Steve Turner Contemporary, & Chung King Projects

Last weekend, I was planning on going to the California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art. However, due to circumstances beyond my control (the fires that were raging in the hills in Chino and Anaheim), I was unable to go. I will go this weekend.

I did see some great art at the gallery openings last Saturday night. Here are the highlights of the night.

My first stop was the Davis Rhodes show entitled White Year at ACME on Wilshire Blvd. I really enjoyed this show. Rhodes work is minimalist in style. Per the press release and the artist statement, Rhodes sought to invoke and reinterpret Barnett Newman. I can see Barnett Newman in his work. Rhodes work is heroic in style and in the way he approaches color and geometry. But an artist that Rhodes does not mention is Robert Mangold. Both Rhodes and Mangold use minimalism and varied shape of canvases as points of reference. Definately a must see. http://www.acmelosangeles.com/ through Dec. 20, 2008.

Hello,

Welcome my relocated blog space. My old blog space is still available and you can view it on my myspace page. www.myspace.com/mario_vasquez.

I am looking forward to this blog and I hope to share my love and passion for art. I plan on posting thoughts, comments, interviews and photos of art from all over the world (and until I can travel more, for now it's all in L.A.). So enjoy and feel free to share your comments and thoughts.

Thank you
