Over the weekend, Fritz Haeg was in the foyer at the Hammer in Los Angeles providing an experience that is best enacted rather than explained.

If you haven't stopped by Regen Projects in LA to see their most recent solo show of Catherine Opie's photographs, you have until March 29th to do so. Fans and newcomers alike are recommended to make a visit in the coming week. From the press: Regen Projects is pleased to announce an exhibition of new portraits and landscapes by Catherine Opie. These photographs mark both a progression and a departure for the artist. Opie's work has always investigated the figure in relation to the landscape, disregarding the polarities typically found within these approaches.

Before then, David hosted an art workshop with the children of South Central, Los Angeles with aims to complete a 40 foot wall surrounding their playground at A Place Called Home (APCH).
