I will be attending both the Indio Date Festival and the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair this coming weekend. High & Dry spent time in the Coachella Valley a few weeks ago and I am returning to focus on the date business and the use of Orientalism to market the product. I will also be attending Cristopher Cichocki’s presentation in Palm Spring at the Annenberg Theater Friday, February 12. He has told me it will be like nothing we have seen before.
It’s official. I am curating a five week film series at the Nevada Museum of Art to coincide with their The Horse exhibit. The films will show each Sunday, culminating with a panel featuring Kenneth Turan, film critic for the L.A. Times and Petrine Mitchum, author of Hollywood Hoofbeats: Trails Blazed Across the Silver Screen, and myself. It will be moderated by Colin Robertsons, Director of Education at the Museum. More information follow.
