A head shot is a mug shot is a portrait . . . until Simone Gad gets her hands on it. The character actress-painter--an odd hyphenate, even by entertainment industry standards--has explored the Hollywood image in her artwork for almost 20 years. In her latest exhibit, "Self-Portraits and Hollywood Imagery" at Orlando Gallery in Sherman Oaks, Gad incorporates her own acting head shots into her assemblages, juxtaposing herself with stars from Keanu Reeves to Rin Tin Tin.

December 2, 1994 | NANCY KAPITANOFF, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES; Nancy Kapitanoff writes regularly about art for The Times
One can identify with and appreciate the essence of an artwork in and of itself without any knowledge of an art ist's life. But often one can also learn a lot about an artist from an artwork, because art is really inseparable from the person who created it. For its annual members' show this year, the Southern California Women's Caucus for Art set out to organize an exhibit of work that would represent a variety of women's voices, cultural identities and experiences.

After being hard hit by several recent recession-forced closures, the art world got a new flash of life this week with the opening Saturday of the Kim Light Gallery, at 126 N. La Brea Ave., in the former Ovsey Gallery space. "I just think it needs to be done--giving a breath of fresh air in L.A. by taking a risk with new artists," said Light, who has brought in Jeffrey Poe (formerly with Robert Berman) to help run the gallery.

It is a few minutes after 7 p.m., which would be curtain time for "All Stars of Performance Art--Episode 8"--if there was a curtain. No place to hang one when your stage is a yellow flatbed truck, borrowed from the City of Los Angeles General Services Motor Pool. The truck is parked across the street from Trinity Episcopal Church on a modest residential street off Melrose, east of Normandie.

If you could hear the thoughts of everyone all at once, what kind of world would it be? In Victor D'Altorio and Henrietta Pearsall's abstract staging of Robert Coover's short story "The Babysitter" at the McCadden Theatre, a frightening though sometimes humorous orchestra of fantasies merges with the seemingly mundane reality of an attractive teenage girl baby-sitting. Although their baby-sitter (Rhonda Patterson) arrives a little late, the Tuckers aren't quite ready to leave for a party.

The lights are down, but the audience at the Knitting Factory is still talking and ordering drinks. Onstage, the Dark Bob is dressed in a skirt, curled toe shoes and a black veil. He is ready to emcee the evening's show. But wait. His prerecorded announcements boom over the sound system while he struggles in vain to lip-sync. The small crowd quiets down, embarrassed that he apparently is messing up. He paces. He gestures. Then his own thoughts come through the speakers.
