Over the last 15 years, biennial exhibitions have gone from being must-see displays of the latest trends to the art world equivalent of Facebook friends: too numerous to care about deeply but too ubiquitous to ignore completely. Over a slightly shorter span L.A. Louver presents “Rogue Wave,” a sort of micro-biennial that delivers the benefits of old-school biennials (exciting art) while avoiding the pitfalls (far-fetched explanations meant to distinguish one biennial from another)

A man died Saturday morning after he and two others were swept into the ocean by a rogue wave in San Pedro, authorities said. Dispatchers received a call about 6:35 a.m. that three people had been knocked into the ocean while standing on the Cabrillo Beach breakwater, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said. One of the three, a 49-year-old man, made his way out of the water with little assistance. Rescue boats were sent out to find two others, Humphrey said.

Regarding " 'Rogue' Waves Surprisingly Common" [Cruise News, May 22]: For a cruise industry official to say a ship cannot be sunk by a rogue wave is wrong and irresponsible. A BBC documentary a few years ago, titled "Freak Wave," showed vivid images of large freighters with holes punched through them that you could drive a bus through. The problem is not necessarily the impact of the wave itself. It is with the flood of water that can penetrate a ship, burning out the electronics and even causing engine failure.

January 13, 1994 | Rick Fignetti and David Reyes, Rockin' Fig is Rick Fignetti, a Huntington Beach surfer/shop owner. Times staff writer David Reyes has reported on surf teams.
Not all surfing safaris are filled with sunshine, glass and perfect breaks. Some can get a little hairy. A lot hairy, in fact. Jim Hodges, a 30-year-old Laguna Beach surfer and Infinity surf shop owner, was with two other surfers last month off Todos Santos Island in Mexico when a 25-foot wave thundered toward them and their 14-foot inflatable boat anchored in the impact zone.

L.A. Louver is not a gallery that many associate with young talent, but with its current exhibition, "Rogue Wave: Eleven Artists From L.A.," it proves more than capable of navigating with ease and insight the ever-surging tides of art school grads and other up-and-comers. Curated by the gallery's Peter Goulds and Kimberly Davis, "Rogue Wave" is a graceful response to the Hammer Museum's "Snapshot: New Art From Los Angeles" and other recent shows celebrating the current face of L.A. art.

In the popular imagination, they have the qualities of a movie behemoth--surging, Jaws-like, out of nowhere on a sunny afternoon to gulp down party boats full of fishermen out for an afternoon of sport. They have been implicated in the demise of oil tankers. They have been blamed for drowning tourists and capsizing data buoys. They have been accused of ripping the railings off an Italian ocean liner and almost sinking the Queen Mary. They are rogue waves.

IT'S a conundrum for middle-class creative types: You go to college for an education so you can get a job that pays you enough to buy a house so you can have a family and start the cycle all over again for your children. Or you opt out and do what you love, hoping you won't land in the gutter. Zach Schwartz was 10 years into option No. 1. He went to college. He got the well-paying job. He looked at real estate. And he was miserable.

SAN FRANCISCO — The winds gusted above 25 knots and the swells topped 12 feet. In short, sailors participating in this year's race around the craggy Farallon Islands, 27 miles west of the Golden Gate, faced typically grueling conditions. Then something went terribly wrong. A rogue wave pummeled the 38-foot Low Speed Chase as it rounded the islands Saturday, knocking five crew members overboard. As the captain sought to rescue them from the 50-degree water, the boat capsized and was hurled onto the rocks.

Abby Sunderland is sitting barefoot aboard her brother's boat in Marina del Rey on a recent morning, her blond hair fluttering in the light breeze. The only physical evidence of the five months she traveled by herself at sea before her sailboat rolled over, ripping off her mast and soaking everything on board, is a simple rope bracelet. The knotted white band on her left wrist was a gift from one of the French fishermen who found her last summer, officially ending her attempt to become the world's youngest sailor to circumnavigate the globe nonstop.

Call it the latest wave or most recent crop -- either way, the influx of emerging artists in Los Angeles has become wonderfully daunting. The community of image-makers keeps increasing in numbers and energy. So do both reasons and opportunities to showcase it. In 2001, L.A. Louver launched its "Rogue Wave" series to focus on emerging local artists. Eleven appeared in the first iteration, and 19 crammed the second, in 2005.

A wall of water up to 18 feet high rose out of a calm sea and crashed onto Daytona Beach, Fla., smashing hundreds of vehicles and causing 75 minor injuries, officials and witnesses said. An undersea landslide apparently caused the 27-mile-long rogue wave, a federal seismologist said. Witnesses said people were bleeding and car windows were smashed after the water receded. Sailboats were piled on top of vehicles on the drive-on beach. Tow trucks pulled out cars shoved under the boardwalk.
