link: ‘Another Cats Show’ at 356 Mission is all about fun with felines

"Another Cats Show," more than 300 works by 300 artists, mostly from L.A., on view at the Boyle Heights contemporary art space 356 Mission, on the edge of downtown L.A. The exhibition includes drawings, paintings, videos, sculptures and even sound pieces by the likes of John Baldessari, William Leavitt, Meg Cranston, Benjamin Weissman and painter Laura Owens, who founded 356 Mission. With works filling the wallspace of the 12,000-square-foot former garment manufacturing warehouse, the show is whimsical, frenetic and more than a little cheeky.

Tehran vs. Tehrangeles: A Special Screening of Maxx
August 27, 2014 at 8 PM
Ooga Twooga / 356 S. Mission Road

The cultural wars between Iran and its left coast diaspora have long been played out in the realms of cinema, television, and music—from pre-revolutionary films such as Mamal Amrikai to the lyrics of pop songs such as Sandy’s Talagh. State television vs. satellite; aging divas vs. youthful rappers; parkour vs. the Shahs of Sunset: the Tehranis have historically portrayed the diasporic Iranian as effeminate, gaudy and morally loose, while the Tehrangelenos see the the Iranians as illiterate, perverted, obscurist bumpkins—that is, if they even acknowledge them at all! Maxx (Saman Moghadam, 2005) is an artifact from the Khatami-era of cross-cultural dialogue, where old stereotypes get some new clothes. The film was a domestic success in Iran, and one of the earlier instances of a non art-house film finding an audience within the diaspora. Can Tehran and Tehrangeles learn to love each other? Post-screening discussion will be led by a team of reluctant and dyed-in-the-wool Tehrangelenos.
