On June 7th, 2005, Self-Help Graphics and Art, a Chicano art center with community, Chicano activist roots, was closed.  Emergency meetings, and political jockeying ensued to reopen the center, but controversy still reigns in this institution that's become "institutionalized".  Still a contested space.  Here are the stories LA-IMC has collected from the archives:

Farzad Kohan: featured exhibition in Los Angeles this June. Kohan's latest works may be viewed at Seyhoun Gallery from June 3 through June 9, 2006. Beginning with an artist reception on Saturday, June 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. Kohan cleverly mixes paint and found objects, forming a three-dimensional format that brings to life a series of lithe, gracefully bending figures that seem to move through space on a fluid emotionally packed journey.

"As an artist , Kohan gently speaks,"I have lived and worked on several continents, and rely on my world view to inform my inner mind. Living in Los Angeles, one of the most iconoclastic cities of all, inspires me to draw upon my self-training and motivation to constantly produce unique and personal artworks. My conceptual pieces directly communicate my thoughts and represent my lifes' perceptions"
From the newswire: FARZAD KOHAN "PENDING PERCEPTION" by Sheryl Mandel

Arts and Entertainment: Carlos Guitarlos show at Liquid Kitty
Carlos Guitarlos is local legend. And last night's show at Liquid Kitty is proof that at age 55 he can still hold forth. Carlos Guitarlos born, Carlos Daniel Ayala in 1950, Carlos grew up in the northeast Los Angeles community of Cypress Park. In 1980 at age 30 co-founded the infamous LA band, Top Jimmy and the Rhythm Pigs. The Band became known for their raucous shows and heavy drinking and developed a devoted following on the 1980s Los Angeles club scene. In the 90s with the band dissolved, Carlos relocated to San Francisco where he played on the streets. After the death of his band mate Top Jimmy in 2001 and his own near death from years of hard living, Carlos is now clean and sober and his playing is better than ever. Full story
