This exhibit had me at ‘Song of the South’ which I remember seeing as a child and not realizing he was a slave. I would like to rewatch it but Disney has it in the vault but I do remember the song … ‘Zippity doo dah’
I will be heading to Malibu for the DEPART Foundation exhibition of New York-based artist Chase Hall in Saturday-Mornings. Mr. Hall is a self-taught artist who uses art to examine racial history in the United States with ‘time honored’ racial stereotypes from the ‘happy slave’ to ‘mammy’ caricatures. These racist images have a negative impact for people of African descent playing into a stereotype that generates ‘fear of black men’, ‘welfare queens’, that black kids are adults and treated as such as well as the hyper sexualization of black bodies. Often we do not see a counter balance of positive portrayals or stories of black people so people in the USA and abroad often only see the negative.
His decision to use art to reveal how the racist images have morphed into a more palpable display doesn’t lessen the impact these are found in children’s literature/school books, tv, movies and advertising. Saturday-Mornings will be displayed at the Depart Foundation Malibu Village in a dedicated project space for Hall’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. This will also be a homecoming for the artist since he spent part of his childhood in the beach community.
Hall has lived all across the USA and in Dubai giving him a unique view of how people view black bodies. He is now based in New York’s East Village where he uses a variety of art styles to bring his vision of race and the African American experience to his art. His art despite the serious subject has such joy and movement that it is provokes thought at it’s beauty and ideas. Hall calls them a “Trojan Horse of racism,” where he is able to get people looking and talking with a somewhat cartoon whimsical look that is influenced by animation, film and TV (entertainment) that most people can better understand by how it effects them as individuals. You may have seen his other exhibits of photography representing New York in ‘snapshots’ of the other side of the city but Saturday-Mornings is the next chapter in this artists display of how he sees the world. Almost from a Saturday morning cartoon series that often didn’t reflect African Americans and when they did it was an offensive stereotype kids would laugh at not realizing the impact.
Saturday-Mornings will present a series of new paintings alongside a video work by Hall exploring existing caricatural representations of African American identity from the present through the past. By looking to character types like the “mammy,” the “Uncle Remus,” the mistral, the jester, the addict, the puppet, or the fool, revealing just how widespread and available these ‘types’ have been in the visual landscape, Hall addresses the culturally impoverishing effect these impersonations have had on communities from within and without. Seldom depicted as hero or protagonist, the narratives available in the depiction of race are few.
Born in 1993 and raised across Minnesota, Chicago, Las Vegas, Colorado, Dubai and Malibu, Chase lives and works out of his studio in the East Village of New York. He has been included in exhibitions with: IMMA Project Space in Ireland, Cob Gallery in London, Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, Moms favorite in Los Angeles, Sheridan in the Bronx, Edward Minskoff Project Space in NYC, among others. He has released the publications: Gaucho, Come, Irie Jesus, Mug, Milk and Honey, Milk and Honey II. His work was awarded “The Best VICE Photos of 2016” and his artwork has been featured in: Vice, Vogue, LOVE, Munchies, Arteviste, Patter, COEVAL and Dazed.
DEPART Foundation provides an alternative platform for creative experimentation and exploration, set within a global context, that thrives outside of conventional, cultural structures. The impact of its work can best be understood as the charting of new artistic destinations with every project and program it undertakes.
Since its founding in 2008, DEPART Foundation has served as a catalyst for the Italian art and cultural community, strengthening the dialogue between Italy and the international art world. DEPART Foundation has actively encouraged artistic production through sponsorship of young and established artists and the provision of space and resources conducive to research, production and exhibition of new work, and to the presentation of educational and public programs.
Some of the most interesting and dynamic artists of our time, from around the world, have been presented for the first time in Rome by DEPART Foundation. They include Cory Arcangel, Joe Bradley, Nate Lowman, Ryan McGinley, Tauba Auerbach, Darren Bader, Louis Eisner, Roe Ethridge, Sam Falls, Mark Flood, Elias Hansen, Brendan Lynch, Oscar Murillo, Sarah Braman, Seth Price, Jon Rafman, Stephen G. Rhodes, Amanda Ross-Ho, Sterling Ruby, Lucien Smith, Valerie Snobeck and Frances Stark. Since 2014, DEPART Foundation Los Angeles has presented solo exhibitions for Gabriele de Santis, Kour Pour, Grear Patterson, Petra Cortright, Mark Horowitz, Giorgio Andreotta Calo, Cameron Platter, Edward S. Curtis, Ulay, and Michael Pybus.

If you are looking for a new brunch spot with great views near the LAX I have to let you in on my new spot secret <shh>.
I was invited to enjoy a brunch with a few other people and get to enjoy a private dining experience. I drove over with a vague plan of enjoying conversation and a little shopping since it’s so near the independent shops and the Culver City mall. When I first drove up I realized the area has changed with so many new buildings as well as the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel upgrade. It was simple to park my car with the valet, stroll into the light bright foyer and into Costero.
The first thing I noticed was that the décor was bright and reminded me of my beloved boutique hotels where I normally stay when traveling. The nice hum of guests checking in and out after an enjoyable night as well as seeing people sitting by the pool soaking in the California sun.
I loved the design of the reception area that offers not only seating with lots of natural light but also a work area for people to plug in laptops/cell phones and other devices (can I just say how GREAT it is to have a plethora of outlets!). Everyone was relaxed and quietly working or just using their phones. One of my biggest frustrations when traveling for work is looking around for an electrical socket! When my phone is down to 7% I feel like I’m in the Hunger Games competing and willing to fight to the death for the last one. They also have a couple of seating areas to accommodate everyone from families to individuals.
Once I walked past the bar (hello Happy Hour) and entered the private room the first thing I noticed was the crag quiche that looked so yummy. Everyone raved over the buttery Crab Quiche and I have to say I was so tempted to take a bite (alas seafood allergies). The scent of Cinnamon was calling me from across the room with their freshly made Doughnuts with Anglais Sauce. They were my first bite and didn’t disappoint. Light and airy with the perfect doughy melt in your mouth that teamed up with my coffee had me planning brunch with friends as we shop on the west side for the holidays. The menu selection was a delight that danced across my tongue. I could not resist the Brussels Sprouts and Pork Belly with the homemade parker house rolls. Did I mention that I have a weakness for carbs?? I was incredibly impressed with Costero Bar Bistro’s food that is worth the trip! Normally when I stay in a hotel I don’t eat in the restaurant but I was incredibly impressed with the food and presentation. The sauces, seasonings and variety of items are appealing to everyone no matter what dietary restrictions they may have.
What a wonderful brunch finished off with the signature Sheratini that was all kind of right. Next time you plan on flying out of LAX you have to check in to the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles where they offer a work lounge overlooking the runway, a great bar, delicious food AND a shuttle. It’s a win win for a staycation, travelers and locals looking for a new place to enjoy a night out.

Panels are an opportunity for fans to connect with their favorite creators. Los Angeles Comic Con took place on October 27-29 and offered dozens of panels for fans to attend when they were not walking the floor. The convention may have ended, but these panels left a lasting impression on me. (more…)

I am looking forward to watching the November 11th film about the murder of Reeva Steenkap by her boyfriend Oscar Pistorioius with his legal maneuverings to avoid paying for this crime. I remember when he said that he thought it was an intruder that was in the bathroom and he HAD to shoot multiple times. It sounded fishy and just an excuse to kill the woman who was trying to leave him. Check out the trailer and tell me what you think. Should he be in jail or free to prey on other innocent women …
OSCAR PISTORIUS: BLADE RUNNER KILLER
PREMIERES SATURDAY NOVEMBER 11 AT 8pm ET/PT ON LIFETIME!
“Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer” tells the story of the sprint runner dubbed the “Blade Runner,” and his rise to fame as a gold medalist Paralympic champion and as the first double-leg amputee to participate in the Olympics. Oscar’s (Andreas Damm, “Elementary”) resilience to overcome his disability combined with his apparent fairy tale relationship with model Reeva Steenkap (Toni Garrn, “Under the Bed”) turned him into a media favorite. This all shattered one Valentine’s Day night when four bullets were fired and Reeva’s life was taken. Her brutal death shocked the world and the court room drama that followed consumed the news. “Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer” provides an inside look at the events leading up to Reeva’s killing, the cracks that formed in the relationship between Oscar and Reeva, as well as the courtroom drama that followed, revealing what happened on that tragic night.
The film was produced by Eric Tomosunas and Swirl Films for Thinkfactory Media and executive produced by Leslie Greif. The film will have its world television premiere on November 11, 2017 on Lifetime. Norman Stone serves as director; Amber Benson is the writer.
