FEATURED ARTIST: Anna Sew Hoy Through experimentation in the studio, Anna Sew Hoy invents eccentric processes for working clay, jeans, and items from the everything-drawer.  She is inspired by clay’s history as a material for making ritual and functional objects.

A few months ago I drove around the neighbor and passed by the house I grew up in, something I hadn’t done in decades. I became really curious and wondered what it would be like to be inside that house again, a house I haven’t been in since I was 8 years old. I vividly remember the layout of the house and what it felt like in every room. I also remember sunlight coming in through the windows specially in the summer. A carpet from Carmen Argote’s childhood home —titled “7...

A year ago, the chances of Justin Bieber having any sort of comeback — commercial, tabloidal, let alone aesthetic — were pretty close to zero. Sure, he’s only been around seven years, but that’s an eternity in show business. It had been over a year since he last put out new music, even longer since his last official album. The consensus was that this former child star’s career was over; no longer in his target demographic’s age range, he found himself unable to push the same buttons as before, a...

The Search for an Authentic Zoot Suit For more than a decade, curators in the department of Costume and Textiles had been in search of an authentic 1930s–‘40s-era zoot suit. Flamboyant in style and exaggerated in proportion, the zoot suit is linked to a relatively small subculture, yet it represents a significant moment in the history of menswear. Find out more on how we acquired this rare piece of fashion, on Unframed: http://bit.ly/1orbJZm [Zoot Suit, 1940–1942, Los Angeles County Museum of...
