Stories of Almost Everyone
Opens Jan. 27
Stories of Almost Everyone is an exhibition about the willingness to believe the stories that are conveyed by works of contemporary art. In recent years, a continued emphasis on an art of ideas—inherited from the legacies of conceptual and post-conceptual artistic practice—has sought to further develop strategies in the service of communicating social, political, and economic histories. To varying degrees, there has been a renewed faith in the abilities of artworks to convey meaning and facilitate supposedly authentic experiences, while artists have simultaneously retained tendencies rooted in mysticism, fiction, and the arts of deception. Through the work of 30 artists, this very meta exhibition examines the relationship between a piece of art’s inherent narrative and the meaning suggested by its display within an institution.

 

Candide
Opens Jan. 27
In celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s centenary, La Opera present the exuberant Candide, the round-the-world thrill ride and musical theatre great that follows the ups and downs and further downs of the eternally optimistic titular character. Frasier and Broadway star Kelsey Grammer stars as Voltaire/Dr. Pangloss.

Wishing you all an incredible year! Cheers
