Torrance Art Museum - 3320 Civic Center Drive
The Gildless Age explores the Los Angeles and California socio-political and eco-geographic landscapes as the epitome of political and industrial tendencies emerging from the Gilded Age of American history. The Gildless Age, guest curated by Denise Johnson in conjunction with the museum's curatorial department, takes as its lens and starting point the poster for the film Endless Summer by John Van Hamersveld. From this point The Gildless Age unpacks the landscapes of contemporary southern California, revealing more often than not complex histories of labor, race, environmental engineering, exploitation and violence that trace their lineages to the so-called Gilded Age. The Gildless Age sees this epoch comprising the birth of the American petrochemical industries, Jim Crow segregation, labor struggles, post-war migrations and American Imperialism watermark our modern sociopolitical climate. Works on view examine the landscape stripped bare by industrial exploitation--from mineral extraction to power infrastructure and sub/urban development. From reflections on California landscapes mediated and circumscribed at all levels by hidden labor force to meditations on technological relationships, The Gildless Age seeks out the connections of history in our contemporary moment.

James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
Looking like entertainment icon John Denver is one thing, but sounding like him, too, is – well, comparable to a “Rocky Mountain High” for the incomparable singer-songwriter Rick Schuler. Rick has assembled a band and show that capture the essence of the legendary musician in every respect. Rick’s Denver-inspired “Country Roads” led him to Aspen, Colorado, where he attended his first John Denver tribute (the 13th annual) in memory of the popular entertainer’s life and music. During the course of the two-day event, Rick met several of Denver’s former band mates and close friends who were nothing short of astonished by the similarities the two shared in look, sound, and musical talent. Whether you’re a Denver devotee or not, you’ll want to catch Rick Schuler’s upcoming performance. Rest assured you’ll leave singing his praises and thanking God for this Country Boy’s truly amazing talent.

Carney Magic is a theatre show that blends mind-blowing sleight of hand with intelligence, taste, and wit into a unique evening of pure entertainment. This is definitely NOT your typical ‘magic show’. Carney’s approach is smart, engaging, and often hilarious. Pinballing between jaunty comedic riffs and astonishing sleight of hand, Carney will have you reeling with his hilarious audience participation segments, as well as his embodiment of multiple characters. Regarded by his peers as one of the top sleight-of-hand performers in the world, Carney has won more awards from Hollywood’s Magic Castle than anyone in its history, as well as the Academy of Magical Arts’ prestigious Masters Performing Fellowship. You won’t see any big boxes, tigers, dancing girls, or lasers: Just a quirky, likable guy, cracking-wise, and doing some pretty amazing things…all the while you’ll be laughing yourself silly.

The Gildless Age explores the Los Angeles and California socio-political and eco-geographic landscapes as the epitome of political and industrial tendencies emerging from the Gilded Age of American history. The Gildless Age, guest curated by Denise Johnson in conjunction with the museum's curatorial department, takes as its lens and starting point the poster for the film Endless Summer by John Van Hamersveld. From this point The Gildless Age unpacks the landscapes of contemporary southern California, revealing more often than not complex histories of labor, race, environmental engineering, exploitation and violence that trace their lineages to the so-called Gilded Age. The Gildless Age sees this epoch comprising the birth of the American petrochemical industries, Jim Crow segregation, labor struggles, post-war migrations and American Imperialism watermark our modern sociopolitical climate. Works on view examine the landscape stripped bare by industrial exploitation--from mineral extraction to power infrastructure and sub/urban development. From reflections on California landscapes mediated and circumscribed at all levels by hidden labor force to meditations on technological relationships, The Gildless Age seeks out the connections of history in our contemporary moment.

The Gildless Age explores the Los Angeles and California socio-political and eco-geographic landscapes as the epitome of political and industrial tendencies emerging from the Gilded Age of American history. The Gildless Age, guest curated by Denise Johnson in conjunction with the museum's curatorial department, takes as its lens and starting point the poster for the film Endless Summer by John Van Hamersveld. From this point The Gildless Age unpacks the landscapes of contemporary southern California, revealing more often than not complex histories of labor, race, environmental engineering, exploitation and violence that trace their lineages to the so-called Gilded Age. The Gildless Age sees this epoch comprising the birth of the American petrochemical industries, Jim Crow segregation, labor struggles, post-war migrations and American Imperialism watermark our modern sociopolitical climate. Works on view examine the landscape stripped bare by industrial exploitation--from mineral extraction to power infrastructure and sub/urban development. From reflections on California landscapes mediated and circumscribed at all levels by hidden labor force to meditations on technological relationships, The Gildless Age seeks out the connections of history in our contemporary moment.

Northrop Corporation built planes. You might recall the Flying Wings. Period. End of story. Not quite, but that is how many think of Northrop Aircraft. In 1939, Jack Northrop created and founded Northrop Corporation in the South Bay. Northrop's initial work gave birth to the Flying Wings in the 1940s. But his life didn’t start and end with the Flying Wings, and Tony Chong should know. Chong is the author of "Flying Wings & Radical Things: Northrop’s Secret Projects & Concepts 1939-1994." Chong will join us for the Western Museum of Flight’s Celebrity Series on Oct. 15 to share stories from his book, as well as stories that didn’t make the book. He will enlighten us on the many advanced concepts, both conventional and radical in shape and purpose, that were proposed and developed over the company’s proud 55-year history. Chong will review of several of the most important and intriguing of those advanced proposals by following their development and the evolving design philosophies behind them. This will be a fascinating talk for anyone interested in aviation technology and the Northrop in particular. Chong’s book will be available for sale at the museum, and he will be on hand to sign autographs. Parking is free. Be a part of the WMoF family. Think about individual, family or business membership. Membership gives you one-year unlimited free admission to celebrity lectures, plus the quarterly newsletter, access to the research library (includes membership card) and access to special events. Members also will be listed in annual publications. Support your community’s unique museum and place in history.

The Gildless Age explores the Los Angeles and California socio-political and eco-geographic landscapes as the epitome of political and industrial tendencies emerging from the Gilded Age of American history. The Gildless Age, guest curated by Denise Johnson in conjunction with the museum's curatorial department, takes as its lens and starting point the poster for the film Endless Summer by John Van Hamersveld. From this point The Gildless Age unpacks the landscapes of contemporary southern California, revealing more often than not complex histories of labor, race, environmental engineering, exploitation and violence that trace their lineages to the so-called Gilded Age. The Gildless Age sees this epoch comprising the birth of the American petrochemical industries, Jim Crow segregation, labor struggles, post-war migrations and American Imperialism watermark our modern sociopolitical climate. Works on view examine the landscape stripped bare by industrial exploitation--from mineral extraction to power infrastructure and sub/urban development. From reflections on California landscapes mediated and circumscribed at all levels by hidden labor force to meditations on technological relationships, The Gildless Age seeks out the connections of history in our contemporary moment.

The Gildless Age explores the Los Angeles and California socio-political and eco-geographic landscapes as the epitome of political and industrial tendencies emerging from the Gilded Age of American history. The Gildless Age, guest curated by Denise Johnson in conjunction with the museum's curatorial department, takes as its lens and starting point the poster for the film Endless Summer by John Van Hamersveld. From this point The Gildless Age unpacks the landscapes of contemporary southern California, revealing more often than not complex histories of labor, race, environmental engineering, exploitation and violence that trace their lineages to the so-called Gilded Age. The Gildless Age sees this epoch comprising the birth of the American petrochemical industries, Jim Crow segregation, labor struggles, post-war migrations and American Imperialism watermark our modern sociopolitical climate. Works on view examine the landscape stripped bare by industrial exploitation--from mineral extraction to power infrastructure and sub/urban development. From reflections on California landscapes mediated and circumscribed at all levels by hidden labor force to meditations on technological relationships, The Gildless Age seeks out the connections of history in our contemporary moment.

This celebration showcases 90-year-old survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp, Cantor David S Wisnia. Wisnia’s vocal talent contributed to his survival during the Holocaust as recounted in his recently published memoir: One Voice, Two Lives. Wisnia began singing in synagogue choirs and was the featured child soloist in pre-WWII Poland’s largest synagogue, the Progressive Tlumacki Synagogue. His repertoire includes Yiddish show tunes, and liturgical and popular music. Wisnia’s grandson, singer-songwriter and pianist Avi Wisnia, joins his grandfather onstage. The program features two visiting cantorial soloists, Rivka Iza Foremniak and Menachem Piotr Mirski, for the renewed Progressive Jewish community, Beit Polska in Poland. Cantor Mike Stein, of Temple Aliyah in Woodland Hills, is internationally celebrated for his musical talent and energy. Cantor Paul Buch of Temple Beth Israel in Pomona is an outstanding cantorial voice. The vocalists will be supported by an instrumental ensemble from UCLA, under the supervision of Neal Brostoff.

Considered scandalous when it premiered a century ago with its provocative “Dance of the Seven Veils”, Richard Strauss’ adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s play has not lost its ability to shock. Set in Biblical times, this erotically charged opera centers on a tangled triangle: the persecuted John the Baptist, a lecherous King Herod, and the monarch’s pathologically seductive stepdaughter, Salome. German Soprano Nadja Michael is ‘mesmerizing throughout’ in the title role (New York Times), opposite bass-baritone, Greer Grimsley “as a thunderous and dramatically compelling Jokanaan, [and] tenor Kim Begley is a magnificent Herod, singing with precision and tonal brilliance” (San Francisco Chronicle). Music Director Nicola Luisotti conducted ‘with flair and muscle. The orchestral playing was powerful and richly colored’ (San Francisco chronicle). Co-directed by Sean Curran and James Robinson. “All the zesty blood lust of a good vampire movie…bravely and marvelously macabre!” – The New York Times.

Works on view examine the landscape stripped bare by industrial exploitation--from mineral extraction to power infrastructure and sub/urban development. From reflections on California landscapes mediated and circumscribed at all levels by hidden labor force to meditations on technological relationships, The Gildless Age seeks out the connections of history in our contemporary moment.
