Tuesday, September 27, 2016 | 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM   
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.

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.

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.
