by BWW News Desk - Apr 14, 2015

The Skirball Cultural Center presents The Singing Posters: Poetry Sound Collage Sculpture Book, artist Allen Ruppersberg's homage to poet Allen Ginsberg's famous poem Howl (1955-1956). It will be on view from May 7 through August 23, 2015. Ruppersberg first conceived of the work when he discovered that his students at UCLA had never heard of the poem. For the artist, it was a way to introduce Howl - which marks its sixtieth anniversary this year - to a new generation. By examining this seminal work of Ginsberg - a prominent American Jewish poet, free thinker, and voice of the Beat Generation - Ruppersberg revives the spirit of the era. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jan 28, 2015

From March 24 through August, , the Skirball Cultural Center presents Rock & Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip, featuring works by Los Angeles-based photographer Robert Landau. On view will be more than twenty photographs from the only extensive collection of images that capture the hand-painted, temporary billboards that lined L.A.'s fabled Sunset Strip for almost two decades. Taken when Landau was just a teen, the photographs document the emergence of an expressive art form uniquely suited to the city of L.A. and bring to life a colorful and fleeting period in American popular culture. They trace the cultural phenomenon of rock billboard advertising from its inception in 1967 - with the promotion of the Doors' debut album - to the advent of MTV in the 1980s. The photographs also offer a glimpse into L.A.'s past, portraying both the city's infrastructure and inhabitants at the time. (more...)
