With the looming loss of Deitch Projects, now that Jeffrey Deitch is headed to the MOCA in L.A., Manhattan's art scene is losing a huge edge. L.A. is pumping, folks. Check out this awesome five week film festival our old friend Aaron Rose organized called Projections that's taking place Roberts & Tilton in Culver City.
 
Billed as a festival of "rare and hard to see films," Projections will feature the work of lots of our favorite artists and friends: Cheryl Dunn, Mike Mills, Chris Johanson, Jo Jackson and Thomas Campbell to Sarah Sophie Flicker, Alia Raza, Maximilla Lucacs and Autumn De Wilde. And on opening night (January 16th) don't miss a screening of Jonas Mekas (he was my teacher in college!!!)'s legendary 1968 film called Walden: Diaries, Notes and Sketches featuring appearances by the likes of Alan Ginsberg, Warhol, John and Yko, Edie Sedgewick, Jack Smith and more. Check the Projections site for more information.
