The dozen ceramic anvils on sawhorse and plywood tables at Acme are signature Matthias Merkel Hess: at once subversive and reverential, sly but earnest, gently comical, surprisingly beautiful and unexpectedly poetic. Merkel Hess has transformed a range of functional objects into clay, in the process generally canceling out their functionality. His buckets and other containers can still serve as vessels, but heavy and fragile ones compared with their lightweight, indestructible plastic models.

To celebrate the opening of the Paris Photo Los Angeles photography fair on the Paramount lot, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is screening "Miradas Multiples, La Maquina Loca" ("Multiple Visions, The Crazy Machine"), a gorgeous documentary directed by Emilio Maille about the great Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa, who will be the subject of a LACMA exhibition later this year. Figueroa shot more than 200 films, and the stunning imagery here shows what a complete master of black and white he was. PHOTOS: Behind-the-scenes Classic Hollywood If you don't believe your eyes, you can listen to Figueroa's peers, great cinematographers, such as Vittorio Storaro, Raoul Coutard, Christopher Doyle and Haskell Wexler, sing his praises.
