FRIDAY, MARCH 25
Film Program: More and Trash
7:30pm and 9:40pm
LACMA presents a screening of More, written and directed by Barbet Schroeder. More, his directorial debut, largely improvised and set to a Pink Floyd score, traces the relationship between a German student and his American girlfriend as they commit themselves to a life of hedonism in Ibiza. At 9:40, a screening of Paul Morrissey's Trash, which was originally made and released in a trilogy along with Flesh and Heat, under the banner of "Andy Warhol Presents." Morrissey introduced narrative and editing into Warhol films, fundamentally changing their aesthetic, and in this film, takes the idea "that drug people are trash" to its extreme. Now on view at LACMA: Human Nature: Contemporary Art from the Collection and Vija Celmins: Television & Disaster 1964-1966.
SATURDAY, MARCH 26
Folk Art Everywhere: Highland Park Art Walk
Various Locations (Highland Park)
Folk Art Everywhere promotes exploration of Los Angeles' many cultures and neighborhoods by bringing art into the spaces of daily life. This art walk, led by writer and cultural planner Maryam Hosseinzadeh begins and ends at the Highland Park stop along the Metro Gold Line, and includes a visit to Figueroa Produce and a picnic at La Tierra de la Culebra Park. The four will loosely follow the historic Route 66 and the Arroyo, as walkers learn about hidden gems from historic signage and architecture, unique public spaces, independent businesses, and more.

L&M Arts (Venice)
The opening reception for an exhibition featuring the work of Liza Lou. Lou has maintained a studio in Durban, South Africa for the last six years, working with Zulu artisans whose families have worked with beads for generations. Lou's work for this exhibition reflects her travels, meditates upon process, the impossibility of perfection, and what Lou terms "the culpability of craft."
