The Annenberg Space for Photography’s Thursday Night Specials Continue!

Yes, the hottest new place for photography in LA, Annenberg Space for Photography, just opened on March 27th, with 11 photographers from Los Angeles, featured.

It’s free, parking is way cheap ($1.00 for evening events, $3.50 during the day) and not only is there a brilliantly curated standing exhibit, there is a study area with books, and media all about your favorite subject.
Yes, photography. That is why you’re here, right?
OK, we’ve told you all about this place in past posts, but last night, they plussed the deal with the second in a series of IRIS Nights Presentations.
The first event had Douglas Kirkland talking about his 50 year career and showing a selection from his massive archives. We blew it. We missed it.

30 photographers had their work chose to be shown in this continuous slide show of work, on the 2 main massive screens and various others around the exhibit halls.
As a sweet bonus, there was food and wine to help stave off any dinner hungers, since the event started at 7:00 PM. Hors d’vores, surely beating the cheese cubes and passable wines at most openings.
And to that point, each photographer presented a kind of visual hor d’vores of their work with a selection of photographs, and a contact/website card at the head.

So the crowd settled into the oversized ottomans, sat on the rubberized floor, or stood watching from multiple vantage points.
Felt like home to us.

Many of the photographers like Jill Greenberg, Kwaku Alston, Jim McHugh (whom we just wrote about), Jeff Dunas, and many more were well represented. There were also personal appearances by a lot of them, so it you ever wanted to ask them a question, it was a perfect time.

Please note that you should make sure you have RSVP on-line for these events, as they fill up fast. If you care making your way to LA, don’t worry , you can do it all online. There were some disappointed folks last night, but there is a space limit.

We may not have done it before, but a major shout out to Wallis Annenberg for making it all happen. And of course, her hard working team that we catch glimpses of, as they make it all appear seamless.
