This Week's Must See Art Events in LA

Aug 11 - Aug 14

A Stranger in My Grave at Four Six One Nine This exhibition unites five artists to investigate the theme of the dead artist, of his self-representation, or substitute, of the disquieting strangeness of a living artist forecasting himself into death: the artist and his effigy flirting with the idea of his own mythology, from his self-destruction to his resurrection.
(Mid City, Friday 6-9pm)
ALL-IN Magazine Release Party & Group Show at Club Pro LA A one-night group exhibition and evening of music, performances, and video screenings in honor of the release of ALL–IN Magazine's second issue. The evening includes artists and writers featured in this coming issue, along with other Los Angeles-based artists.
(Downtown, Friday 8pm-12am)
Maja Ruznic The Wailing Sisters at CES Gallery The inaugural CES Residency exhibition, The Wailing Sisters, is a solo presentation by 2016 Artist-In Residence Maja Ruznic.  Her paintings are an outcry to all of us in pain, which as Ruznic knows, is all of us. She stains canvases with deep, earthy colors, pulling figures from the Rorschach puddles and pushing and pulling them into situations and narratives.   
(Arts District, Saturday 7-9pm)
REVIVER: Yale MFA Photography 2016 at ASHES/ASHES Ten artists engage with formal photographic practice while trying to find a place in a world of ever-proliferating images.  The exhibition allows viewers to see what is happening on the ground level of contemporary photography while looking out for the work that will foretell its path.
(MacArthur Park, Sunday 7-9pm)
John Emison and Jamie Felton Sun Power at Ms. Barbers  An ongoing dialogue between the artists around the functions of art and design vis-à-vis image, object, utility, and ornamentation. The subject-object relationship between picture and illumination gets heated when lamps turn on paintings and paintings turn on lamps; an erotics between beings and things.
(Culver City,  Saturday 7-10pm)
UnderLA presented by CURRENT:LA 
To close out this year's CURRENT:LA biennial experience, artists Refik Anadol & Peggy Weil will present UnderLA at the Historic 1st Street Bridge. The piece is a site-specific projection created with scientific data generated from LA’s aquifers. KCHUNG will also be presenting a a live broadcast and sonic sound to accompany the installation.

(Downtown,  Sat & Sun 8:30-11pm)
You Sad Legend at 356 Mission A performance by Wu Tsang and boychild, featuring Patrick Belaga. Through their performances, Wu Tsang and boychild explore the relationship between the self, identity and the narratives that construct them while examining subcultures and sites of cul­tural resistance. 
(Boyle Heights, Sunday 8pm)
WOAH Last-Look:
WACKing the Piñata at ltd los angeles 
Adapting what Connie Butler cites as essential to realizing WACK!: Art and the Feminist Revolution— the first institutional survey made under the influence of feminism— asserting “feminism constitutes an ideology of shifting criteria,” ltd presents a re-take organized by Shirley Morales and Andrew Emard. The result is an effective pairing feat. Jennifer Chan, Mira Dancy, Debora Delmar Corp., Cédric Fargues, Sarah Faux, Mariah Garnett, Rachel Mason, Anja Salonen, Tschabalala Self, and Alison Veit, encouraging a broader sense of what makes up a feminist practice and a celebratory commitment where former ideas and their relevance is "examined, altered, enjoyed or tossed."
Closing BBQ Sunday Aug 14 5-8pm.
