Star Montana: Tear Drops and Three Dots
LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES  •  UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center  •  22 August - 28 October 2016
 
 
Exposing states of sensitivity, loss, and salvation, Star Montana reassembles her family history through the layering of different emotions associated with poverty, the loss of her mother, and socioeconomic struggles that are not only personal but also regionally and nationally applicable. Her candid archive captures an acute sense of time and timelessness, deep heartbreak and loss. Although vulnerable and intimate, her portraits find strength in the commonality of difficult—and often unspoken—narratives.

Star Montana is a photo-based artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and Brooklyn, NY.  She was born and raised in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East Los Angeles, which is predominantly Mexican American and serves as the backdrop to much of her work. 

Montana received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2013. In 2012, she worked at the CSRC as part of the Getty Multicultural Internship Program.

Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters
LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES  •  Los Angeles County Museum of Art  •  31 July - 26 November 2016
 

Guillermo del Toro (b. 1964) is one of the most inventive filmmakers of his generation. Beginning with Cronos (1993) and continuing through The Devil’s Backbone (2001), Hellboy (2004), Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), Pacific Rim (2013), and Crimson Peak (2015), among many other film, television, and book projects, del Toro has reinvented the genres of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. Working with a team of craftsmen, artists, and actors—and referencing a wide range of cinematic, pop-culture, and art-historical sources—del Toro recreates the lucid dreams he experienced as a child in Guadalajara, Mexico. He now works internationally, with a cherished home base he calls “Bleak House” in the suburbs of Los Angeles.

Taking inspiration from del Toro’s imagination, the exhibition reveals his creative process through his collection of paintings, drawings, maquettes, artifacts, and concept film art. Rather than a traditional chronology or filmography, the exhibition is organized thematically, beginning with visions of death and the afterlife; continuing through explorations of magic, occultism, horror, and monsters; and concluding with representations of innocence and redemption.

Original music and soundscape for this exhibition created by Gustavo Santaolalla.

Senses of Time: Video and Film-Based Works of Africa
LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES  •  Los Angeles County Museum  •  20 December 2015 - 2 January 2017
 
 

Our hearts beat to the rhythms of biological time and continents drift in geological time, while we set our watches to the precision of Naval time. Time may be easy to measure, but it is challenging to understand. Five leading contemporary artists of Africa explore temporal strategies to convey how time is experienced—and produced—by the body. Bodies climb, dance, and dissolve in six works of video and film, or “time-based” art. Characters and the actions they depict repeat, resist, and reverse any expectation that time must move relentlessly forward.

Senses of Time invites viewers to consider tensions between personal and political time, ritual and technological time, bodily and mechanical time. Through pacing, sequencing, looping, layering, and mirroring, diverse perceptions of time are both embodied and expressed.
