This Week's Must See Art Events in LA

Oct. 29 - Nov. 1 

9800 transforms the entirety of the vacant, historically emblematic 9800 S Sepulveda building into a generative space of multiple exhibitions and events. The show, massive in scale, is neither a biennial, symposium nor performance space, but somewhere in between, perhaps more in the realm of the experimental, temperamental, fleeting, emerging.
(Inglewood, Thursday 7pm - 12am)
April Street Lay Down Your Arms at Various Small Fires Street uses three spaces of the gallery to weave a dialog between a sound work, a sculptural installation and performative paintings. The exhibition is an environmental menagerie of objects and sounds severed from their original habitats, to re-form as one body in the throws of readjustment, surrender and transcendence. (Hollywood, Friday 6-8pm)
William Crawford More Worried Than a Worm in a Bird's Nest at FARAGO  Found in an abandoned house in Oakland, CA, William Crawford’s drawings depict drug use and orgies often including a recurring male figure which suggests the artist’s self-portrait. Nothing is known about the artist except for his occasional signature. Several of them were drawn on the backs of prison roster sheets dated 1997. 
(Downtown, Friday 7-9pm)
Halloween Comedy as Therapy with Ann Hirsch and Ed Fornieles at Chateau Shatto Ann and Ed will be leading a group comedy therapy session that will delve into the depths of your inner darkness as a fun "pregame" for your halloween festivities. With special guest Colin Carruthers. Costume optional. (Downtown, Friday 7-10pm)
Aura Rosenberg Who Am I?, What Am I?, Where Am I? at Meliksetian | Briggs Part of an ongoing series of collaborative portraits of children.  Currently, over eighty artists have taken part.  From these, Rosenberg selected five images, from collaborations with John Baldessari, Mike Kelley, Sam Lewitt, Laurie Simmons, and Christopher Williams, to print as large-scale works.
(West Hollywood, Saturday 6-8pm)
Rain Room at LACMA Random International’s Rain Room (2012) is an immersive environment of perpetually falling water that pauses wherever a human body is detected. The installation offers visitors an opportunity to experience what is seemingly impossible: the ability to control rain. Rain Room presents a respite from everyday life and an opportunity for sensory reflection within a responsive relationship. Reserve your tickets(Miracle Mile, Sunday 10am -7pm)
WOAH Last-Look:
Anxiety Social Club at Ashes/Ashes
ASHES/ASHES is the stage bringing NYC based Bradford Kessler's visually loaded, humorously entrancing, nostalgically encroached, and at times psychologically haunting manifesto to life. Mutation and premonition are central to the Kessler experience, where works by other artists are carefully engulfed within a 'catastrophic symphony of shifting childhood imagination and political ideology.' Closing tomorrow, Oct. 30th with gallery hours 11am - 5pm.
