LOS ANGELES — In a city whose name is synonymous with the motion picture industry, it’s common for the worlds of film and art to collide. It’s less common, however, for them to collide in a way that’s critical and not simply flirting with the idea of celebrity. The installation of British artist and Oscar winner Steve McQueen’s work at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles, is one of those rare, shining moments when art and Hollywood cohabit in a cogent, sober, and analytical manner.

(via Younger Americans More Likely to Read Books, Go to the Library)
A new survey by the Pew Research Center has found that the 16–29 demographic in the United States reads books and patronizes libraries at rates higher than those exhibited by adults over 30. The results provide something of a counterbalance to the perennial hand-wringing over the alleged role of the internet in diminishing the audience for books or eviscerating the cherished public library. One of the study’s most striking findings is that although older Americans more heavily weight the role of the library in their community, they are slightly less likely than younger demographics to actually have been to the library.

(via Long-Running Moscow Art Fair Canceled)
A key Russian contemporary art fair has been canceled in its 18th year and appears unlikely to return, The Art Newspaper reported. Art Moscow — by one account the city’s “oldest fair for contemporary art“; by another, “Russia’s oldest art fair” — seems to have been facing both economic and political troubles, including EU and US sanctions on the country, “which organisers fear may hurt the fair, since the half of the exhibitors are from abroad,” as well as an episode of censorship that happened at this past June’s International Book fair.

LOS ANGELES — The contemporary art world often seems to be on a super-sized trajectory, with the rise of mega-galleries and record-setting auction prices all the rage. Alongside this bigger-is-better mindset, there is a competing approach that favors the humble, the personal, and the DIY, from artist-run spaces, to backyard performance art, to micro-galleries. One of the newest additions to this group is Del Vaz Projects, an apartment gallery and residency project located in Los Angeles’ Little Osaka neighborhood (it’s west of the 405, not to be confused with Little Tokyo).
