Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Equivalents / I Still Dream


In his Equivalents paintings, Michael Childress ignites an event horizon and then offers a bridge across the burning threshold. Abstraction becomes more solid than anything resembling matter. We as his viewers are invited to peak beyond the known stratosphere and are permitted to witness the moment of transition between the nothing-that-was-not and the something-that-is. In these moments, we become the observers – and as the observers, we become responsible for reality itself. Sung Hwa Kim’s paintings embody a spirit of contemporary Romanticism in their portrayals of lightness. His Nocturne series, which began during the recent pandemic, explore the dichotomy between light and dark through symbolic valences of hope and life triumphing over loss and despair. Their enduring lightness arrests one’s gaze and reignites a connection to things absent or forgotten, heightening an awareness of self. As time inevitably passes, and nothing lasts forever, Kim’s paintings persevere in their endearing defiance against darkness, always looking into the future and remaining stubbornly optimistic.

Play | Lear, Part II: Outdoor Shakespeare Adapted to the Old West


California, 1879. The Frontier lies open with the promise of power, wealth, and glory... for some. For others there is only defeat and ruin. Written in the midst of a deadly plague, Lear is a tragedy about family, loyalty, and the choices people make to break free from their restraints. No ghosts, no angry gods, no magic, and no witches. Only the unforgiving skies, the cruelty of the ordinary world, and the human heart's capacity for love and hate, darkness and light. Presented in two parts.

Book Discussion | The Cobrasnake: Y2Ks Archive


A love letter to a time before Instagram and the legendary party scenes of the 2000s that brought together the new millennium's rising stars of pop culture. Under the moniker the Cobrasnake, the photographer Mark Hunter captured the party scenes of Los Angeles and New York during the hipster-glam heyday of the 2000s—and in doing so defined the look of a generation. Armed with just a Polaroid and a primitive website, Cobrasnake captured pioneers of youth culture from Kanye West and Steve Aoki to Jeremy Scott, Katy Perry, and Virgil Abloh—icons of the indie pop world in the making.

Reading | “Everything will be fine”: The End of a Long Journey into the Realm of Fiction


With his newly finished “Kutzenberger trilogy,” Austrian author and literary scholar Stefan Kutzenberger created a work that is unparalleled in German contemporary literature. When author, narrator and protagonist share a name, it is mostly autofiction. Is this the case here, though? Literary scholar/translator Ross Benjamin and author Stefan Kutzenberger discuss the “I” in literature and the increasingly blurred lines between fact and fiction. Kutzenberger will be reading excerpts from his three novels – in which the involuntary hero bears the name Stefan Kutzenberger.
