Academy Museum of Motion Pictures’ exhibition Regeneration: Black Cinema 1898-1971

Through April 9, 2023 - Academy Museum of Motion Pictures 

The Academy Museum’s landmark exhibition Regeneration: Black Cinema 1898–1971 explores the visual culture of Black cinema in its manifold expressions, from cinema’s dawn in the late 19th century through the civil rights movements of the 1960s and their aftermath into the early ‘70s. The exhibition is an in-depth look at Black participation in American filmmaking. Regeneration highlights the work of African American filmmakers and creates dialogues with visual artists while simultaneously expanding discussions surrounding US film history. “Regeneration: Black Cinema, 1898–1971” is on view at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures through April 9, 2023.

Gagosian: a true original

Gagosian Beverly Hills is devoted to modern masters. Located on North Camden Drive, this striking space is home to pieces by Jenny Saville and Nancy Rubins. Talk-of-the-town exhibitions have celebrated diverse artists including Roy Lichtenstein and Man Ray, while Louise Bourgeois – whose sculptures are also in the hotel art collection – has featured too.

The big Frieze

February sees Los Angeles Frieze, as the annual art fair rolls into town. Dynamic and vibrant, it brings together more than 100 global galleries and shines a spotlight on the city’s contemporary art scene.

Since its Los Angeles debut in 2019, Frieze has grown year on year, expanding to new locations. 2022 saw The Maybourne Beverly Hills join the roster of hosts, as WhIsBe unveiled a seven-foot high, powder-blue giant gummy, dubbed ‘Vandal Gummy’, at the hotel.

Nestled alongside the fashion houses of Rodeo Drive, close to The Maybourne Beverly Hills, stands Winn Slavin Fine Art. For collectors, it showcases an inspiring gallery by international artists from Ukraine to Colombia. Amongst the modern masters in the frame here are Degas, Renoir and Lautrec.
