art, antiques and santa monica

the latimes, flavorpill, daily candy and just about everyone else has run a piece on this weekend's LA Modernism show in santa monica. but in case you missed it:

If Modernism were a religion, Dennis Boses would be the new pope. Last year the owner of the 25-year-old antiquary of cool, Off the Wall on Melrose Avenue, became the promoter of the annual Los Angeles Modernism Show, which opens Friday and runs through Sunday at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.... Inside, Boses says, you won't find just Charles Eames. Nearly 90 dealers will represent "the complete span of 20th century design, from Art Nouveau to contemporary Brazilian furniture, which is red hot right now." (818) 244-1126

I dont know if I'll have a chance to check it out but I do plan on going to this opening, curated by a friend (text from flavorpill):

The ArtNights series at 18th Street is like that friend you see just a few times a year; some things are familiar but good to see again, and many things are new and exciting. Tonight's installment includes The Curious and the Profound, a group show curated by Lisa Adams on the topic of alternative perceptions. There are also open studios, exhibitions, and a gallery talk by Carol Es.
