L.A. Conservancy Annual Meeting Celebrates "Looking at Los Angeles"
Join the Los Angeles Conservancy at the historic Cinerama Dome (1963, Welton Becket and Associates) for a one-of-a-kind event that's free and open to the public. First is the Conservancy's annual meeting, which will recap recent efforts to save L.A. landmarks, announce our new board of directors, and recognize outstanding volunteers. Then we'll have a special program on "Looking at Los Angeles," an extraordinary new photography book that explores our city through the camera lens of more than 200 renowned artists, from Diane Arbus to Ed Ruscha to Andy Warhol. The book was edited by Los Angeles Conservancy board member and actor Ben Stiller and art/photography curator Marla Hamburg Kennedy.

Noted Los Angeles author David L. Ulin will give a slide presentation discussing images from the book. Tim Wride, former associate curator of the Photography Department at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, will then moderate a panel discussion with artists Julius Shulman and Catherine Opie, book editor Marla Hamburg Kennedy, gallery owner Craig Krull, and the Conservancy's executive director, Linda Dishman. After the program, we'll move to the ArcLight Gallery for an exhibit of prints from the book and a booksigning with the artists. The exhibit will be on view at ArcLight June 18 - July 18. Stephen Cohen Gallery is the exhibition's gallery sponsor.

So that's what a general meeting is like. My first.... Perfect setting, great to see a number of ModCom posters that have gone above and beyond, get their due Saturday.

The LA photo book was a big motivation for me to attend. No disappointment there! The panel discussion.... Julius Shulman was everything I have come to expect from posts here and articles in the paper. That is to say loads of bluster, a memory like a bear trap and a diet of high self-esteem. If you missed it, Julius "tore" the new book apart in the midst of it's creators, an eyesore to paraphrase; a poison pen letter to the great sprawling city he loves. He lobbied for a positive take on LA, for the shutterbugs and editors to aim in the direction of soaring gleeming creation. There was reference to the term "democracy" by Julius in his opening remarks on the panel that were somewhat oblique to me at first. When he was done I understood it to mean " I GOT STUCK IN A BOOK WITH A BUNCH OF CYNICAL MALCONTENTS THAT HIJACKED MY VISION OF A GLORIOUS CITY".

A part of me see this great photographer's point. The other part of me bought the book, stood in line and had anyone associated with the book with in pen in hand, including Mr. Shulman, sign the thing.

Man, I'm sorry I missed it, too. Will someone please explain why an actor (Ben Stiller) was on the panel? (I'm referring to the posts in the 5th & Spring blog.)

The panel discussion was about this book:

which was co-edited by Stiller

who also happens to be on the board of the Conservancy
