The EVERY WOMAN BIENNIAL is the all woman and women-identified art biennial founded and curated by C. Finley. What began as the Whitney Houston Biennial, a wild one-night event of art and performance celebrating women in 2014, and expanded to a two-week exhibition in 2017 in the awakening of the #MeToo movement, will present its third iteration, titled Every Woman Biennial, from May 20 - May 29 in NY, and a sister biennial featuring LA-based artists June 2 - 12 in LA.

The Biennial has grown in scope to include over 600 artists in its two unique presentations in NY and LA, featuring expanded art exhibitions, a NY film festival, and events including I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY Flash Mob in NY, and performances of Girl Bands in LA. Timing with The Whitney Museum’s Biennial, the aim is to extend the celebration of art and create even more positive opportunities for emerging women artists. The Biennial engages artists, through a democratic open call, to cross-pollinate with each other from a variety of mediums, generations, and racial and ethnic backgrounds. The salon-style exhibition features painting, photography, installation, sculpture, video art, textile, and multimedia works, activated by per- formance, dance, music, poetry readings, theater and film.

An Evening with Melinda Gates

An Evening with Melinda Gates

An Evening with Melinda Gates discussing her book, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World

In The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World, Melinda traces her awakening to the link between women’s empowerment and the health of societies. She shows some of the tremendous opportunities that exist right now to “turbo-charge” change. And she provides simple and effective ways each one of us can make a difference. Convinced that all women should be free to decide whether and when to have children, Melinda took her first step onto the global stage to make a stand for family planning. That step launched her into further efforts: to ensure women everywhere have access to every kind of job; to encourage men around the globe to share equally in the burdens of household work; to advocate for paid family and medical leave for everyone; to eliminate gender bias in all its forms.

Throughout, Melinda introduces us to her heroes in the movement towards equality, offers startling data, shares moving conversations she’s had with women from all over the world―and shows how we can all get involved.

A personal statement of passionate conviction, this book tells of Melinda’s journey from a partner working behind the scenes to one of the world’s foremost advocates for women, driven by the belief that no one should be excluded, all lives have equal value, and gender equity is the lever that lifts everything.

Architects Who Built Southern California with Antonio Gonzalez

Architects Who Built Southern California with Antonio Gonzalez

The Last Bookstore is pleased to present author Antonio Gonzalez and his new book Architects Who Built Southern California. In the early 1900s, the population of Southern California exploded, and the cities grew at such a rapid pace that builders could hardly keep up. Among those who settled in the area were ten architects looking to make their mark on the world. Claud Beelman, a man who never received a college degree, would go on to design the Elks Lodge in Los Angeles. Albert C. Martin, architect of Grauman’s Million Dollar Theater, founded a company that is still going strong over a hundred years later, and Julia Morgan, the first woman architect licensed in California, was hired by William Randolph Hearst to design the Examiner Building. Join author Antonio Gonzalez as he tells the stories of the people behind some of Southern California’s most iconic buildings.
The Architects Who Built Southern California is 10 chapters with each chapter devoted to a different architect (or architectural firm) including: Harrison Albright, John Austin, Claud Beelman, Elmer Grey, Hudson & Munsell, A. C. Martin, Meyer & Holler, Julia Morgan, Morgan Walls & Clements and Alfred F. Rosenheim.

470 square miles. Nearly 4 million people. $1.2 billion to house the homeless. The 2028 Olympics. And 1 Chief Design Officer.  No pressure.

Earlier this year, Mayor Garcetti lured away long-time Los Angeles Times Architecture Critic Christopher Hawthorne to become the City’s first Chief Design Officer. Which means what exactly?  Well, it’s been almost six months, so it’s time to find out. On September 20, ULI-LA is pleased to host a Meet and Greet Event with Christopher Hawthorne to hear about how his new role is unfolding, and where he thinks he’ll be contributing to our urban fabric in the years ahead. Mr. Hawthorne will also discuss with us how it feels to go from being the observer to becoming the observed.

We will be hearing from Mr. Hawthorne at the cool and attractive new offices of Jerde, a perfectly appropriate mix of the old and the new, particularly for this speaker. Located right in the heart of downtown, if you have not seen this space, it is reason enough to attend.

Registration:

  • Public/Nonprofit: $35 (Non-Member $60)
