Over the past couple years, every time we have stopped by Yoskay Yamamoto’s (interviewed) for a visit (here, here and here), we saw evidence of some pretty sweet customs he had been working on when he had extra time. Taking classic toys and figures and remixing them with wood, clay, and paint, the new pieces were changed to have classic Yamamoto features. It now looks like these will all be revealed to the public at the LeBasse Projects in Chinatown in a showing entitled Jokes On Me…We’ll have more for you before the show opens on March 24th.

In a feast for the eyes, a new film series reveals the stories behind the most intriguing artists and architects of our time.
Series presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures, the Carsey-Wolf Center, and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UCSB
1 PM - Eames: The Architect and the Painter
“Sprightly…Between the wide array of interviewees and surplus of colorful archival materials, the deftly assembled pic has nary a dull moment.” Variety
Charles and Ray Eames were modernist design icons – best known for their mid-century furniture creations. This James Franco-narrated film gives a glimpse into the unconventional marriage of the hyper-creative husband-and-wife team and their L.A. studio, dubbed “The Eamery.”

3 PM - Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman
“Julius Shulman, the irrepressible and engaging subject of the documentaryVisual Acoustics, was no ordinary architectural photographer and his long and productive career makes for a fascinating primer in modern architecture, Los Angeles culture and the meaning of a well-lived life.” The Washington Post
Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, a joyful and fascinating portrait of the world’s greatest architectural photographer, whose images brought modern architecture into the mainstream, including the sleek marvels of modernist legends like Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra and Frank Gehry.
