In just over a week, three art fairs will be popping up throughout Los Angeles: Frieze at the Santa Monica Airport, Felix at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, and Spring Break in Culver City. While much of the LA art world will be spending their days navigating the cavernous tents of Frieze or lounging by the Hockney pool at the Roosevelt, there are several cultural events taking place throughout the city that offer alternatives to the market-driven machinations of the fairs. Raffi and Al’s art bar provides a communal setting for a cocktail, JOJO ABOT blurs boundaries with their multidisciplinary performance, a Teddy Sandoval listening party showcases intergenerational creative networks, and more.

Central Server Works Presents Volta’s Glass House

Glass House is an interactive, multidisciplinary theater piece in which audience members and performers will collaborate to shape the course of the work.

Presented by art gallery Central Server Works, directed by Mamie Green and Megan Paradowski, and written by Sammy Loren and Zoey Greenwald, Glass House features sculptures by Gbenga Komolafe and music by composer Patrick Shiroishi.

If the art world in 2023 could be defined by one word, it would probably be scandal. From the multiple crises that embroiled the British Museum to investigations on human remains implicating the Smithsonian and the American Museum of Natural History, to say nothing of the near constant seizures and repatriations across the institutional sphere, this was the year museums took a beating.

Architect David Adjaye, advisor Lisa Schiff, and Yayoi Kusama all found themselves in hot water, while the fallout over the October 7 attack in Israel by the militant group Hamas and the resulting war on Gaza continues to upend the art world.
