There are so many amazing exhibits and readings goin’ on in L.A. this summer, that I would be remiss if I moseyed on by without cluing in my faithful readers!
First up, if you are a Gustav Klimt fan like me, you’ll be drooling over The Getty’s new Klimt show, “The Magic of Line” up now through September 23rd. This rebellious, horny young French Impressionist did wonders pissing off the conservatives in Vienna, painting homage after homage to women’s pubes, maternity and orgies.
Next up, we have “Who Shot Rock & Roll” at the Annenberg Space for Photography. This ruckus good time is showing now through October 7th.
According to Annenberg, WSRR is “a group show featuring the work of over 100 photographers. Originally shown and created by the Brooklyn Museum with guest curator and author Gail Buckland, Who Shot Rock & Roll is the first major museum exhibit on rock and roll to spotlight the creative and collaborative role that photographers played in the history of rock music.”
As part of the event, KCRW will be hosting three FREE live outdoor performances at Annenberg in Century City, featuring Moby, Portugal. The Man, and Raphael Saadiq & Band of Skulls, July 14th, July 21st and August 4th, respectively. RSVP at KCRW.

If you happen to live up north, San Francisco is bragging quite a miraculous tribute to the ‘Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier’ at de Young Museum. “From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” is showing now through August 19th.
