PLAN ForYourArt: November 3-9

Each week, ForYourArt brings you the best opportunities to SEECOLLECTLEARN ABOUT, and SUPPORT Art in Los Angeles.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3

Like a Patient, Etherized Upon a Table (MOCA Goes Dark)
MOCA Grand Avenue (Downtown)
7-10 p.m.
This second work conceived as part of "Loving You Is Like Fucking the Dead" will offer museum visitors a sightless tour of the galleries at MOCA Grand Avenue. Constructing an experience that exists in contradiction to the typical art museum encounter, in which one is encouraged to ignore everything but the art on the wall, Glynn will blindfold participants and invite them to navigate a path through the galleries.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4

Desire in Pursuyt of the Whole
Regen Projects (West Hollywood)
6-8 p.m.
An exhibition of new works by Los Angeles artist Raymond Pettibon. The show's title refers to Baron Corvo's complex novel of three interlocking plots where the author is thinly disguised as the protagonist. Pettibon's work often combines his own writing with quotes lifted from a myriad of sources ranging from quotidian to classical literature.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5

Libros Schmibros: Closing Day
Hammer Museum (Westwood)
11 a.m.-7 p.m.
The final day for Libros Schmibros' residency at the Hammer. Libros Schibros is an extension of David Kipen's Boyle Heights lending library and used-book shop set up in the Hammer Museum's lobby gallery.

Phenomenal Symposium
Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (San Diego)
11 a.m.-2 p.m.
A unique opportunity to hear from Light and Space scholars at the "Phenomenal" symposium, which will also serve as the launch of the related publication.
