Abbot Kinney Events

Los Angeles filmmaker Eileen Mabel is hosting An Evening with Mabel, a one-time cultural event and first screening of her documentary film Finding Mabel, Saturday, November 22, 2014 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Beyond Baroque, at 681 Venice Blvd, Venice CA 90291. Finding Mabel traces Eileen’s journey to uncover the full story of her namesake Mabel, who at 19, became one of the 30,000 who disappeared during Argentina’s infamous “Dirty War” (1976- 1983).

Eileen Mabel was born and raised in California after her parents fled Argentina to the US during Argentina’s military dictatorship in the 1970’s.

An Evening with Mabel will feature Argentine music, food, drinks, desserts, and a silent auction & raffle, followed by an indoor/outdoor screening of the film and Q&A with director Eileen Mabel. This event is an opportunity to share in Argentine culture, learn about the country’s recent history, and honor the 30,000 Desaparecidos. Tickets are $20 and proceeds go towards post production & film festival submissions.

LAURA PLAGEMAN: RESPONSE

September 20 - November 9, 2014
Opening Night: Saturday, September 20, 6pm to 8pm

1350 Abbot Kinney Blvd.

Laura Plageman, Response to Print of Cypress Point, California, 2014, archival pigment print, editions variable

De Soto Gallery is pleased to present Response, an exhibition of photographs by Laura Plageman on view from September 20 - November 9, 2014. This is Plageman’s first solo exhibition with De Soto Gallery. The artist will be present for an opening reception on Saturday, September 20 from 6pm to 8pm.

In the second installment of her Response series, Laura Plageman shifts her gaze from land to sea. With continued focus on the materiality of the photographic print, her new works oscillate between image and object, photography and sculpture, landscape and still life. Each piece is a “response” to an original image that is sculpted and collaged into a tabletop assemblage and then re-photographed. The final prints hover between being illusory and tangible, seemingly impossible but showing evidence of their actual construction.

To create the first generation images, Plageman visited popular stops along the California coast, scenic destinations that draw countless visitors all with camera in hand. She regards these places as almost object-like themselves in how they are experienced and collected. Plageman reflects on how the landscape can be mutable psychically and physically, less real through aesthetic distance and literally changing shape through forces of nature and human impact. With every new rendition, the land acquires layers of meaning and opens up an array of interpretations and possibilities.

In the end, Plageman’s works are a cumulative record of her observations and experimentation over time and space. Each account has a bit of truth and fiction. Heeding Susan Sontag who said, “all photographs are momento mori,” Plageman reminds us that things change and boundaries shift, encapsulating the transience and dynamism of our world.

Laura Plageman (b. 1976, Berkeley, CA) received her BA from Wesleyan University and MFA from California College of the Arts where she has held various academic appointments. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and institutions across the US, including recent exhibitions at Photo Center Northwest in Seattle and Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago. She lives and works in Oakland, California.

Gallery hours are from Thursday thru Sunday, noon to 6pm, and by appointment. For visuals and additional information please contact: Shelley De Soto at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 323-253-2255.
