About the Gallery:
Meltdown Gallery on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. Meltdown Gallery is located within Meltdown Comics, one of the most respected comic book stores in the world. Meltdown Comics/Meltdown Gallery is a key component in the cultural sphere of Los Angeles. Meltdown Gallery exhibits local and international established and emerging artists working in the mediums of graphic novel/comic art, designer toys, graffiti/aerosol painting, photography, illustration, and digital artwork.

About Meltdown Comics:
In 1993 with little more than some Vertigo comics, a run of “The Crow”, and some Spider-Man t-shirts Meltdown Comics and Collectibles opened its doors. The neighbors were afraid to let their children come in and play the Jokers Wild pinball game and the pimps would run their girls in to hide from the cops. Constantly gazing across the street at the not-so-aptly named “Syds” children’s store Gaston Dominguez-Letelier and Ilia Carson-Letelier knew their dream of one day being the largest comic book store on the west coast would one day come day come true.

After 2 moves on the same block (and with the help of Francisco Dominguez and Hisami Dominguez-Letelier) in 2002, that dream materialized. Now the mecca for all things comic book, comedy, podcasting and pop-culture related bits, Meltdown celebrates its 20th anniversary this fall with a blockbuster line-up of events and programs that in the past have garnered such accolades as “Best of LA” LA Weekly, “Best of LA” LA Magazine, “Best Comedy” LA Weekly, “Top 50 things why LA kicks ass?” LA Weekly, “Best Store” Playboy Magazine “top 10 store you must visit before you die” etc…

About NerdMelt:
You won’t find a marquee for the NerdMelt Showroom on Sunset Boulevard, or any signage, for that matter. When you walk in to the verifiable comic book Mecca that is Meltdown Comics and head to the back, a Nerdist logo greets your entrance to one of the most unique performance  paces in Los Angeles. It isn’t your typical showroom with plush chairs, dark walls and a far off green room marking the divide between performer and audience. This is NerdMelt Showroom. If NerdMelt’s vitality is partially drawn from its unique aesthetics and surroundings, perhaps the rest is thanks to the community that has found itself drawn to the vision of Chris Hardwick of bringing the best, most unique, nerd-centric entertainment to you. It’s a place for Dan Harmon to hold court among a hundred or so adoring fans. It’s a place to see your favorite podcasts recorded live, in the flesh. It’s a place to spend your Sunday afternoons listening to Ben Blacker host the best television writers in the industry discussing their craft. It’s a place where every Wednesday night any standup comedian you’ve ever wished to see could be at The Meltdown with Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, from Louis C.K. to Jim Gaffigan to Robin Williams. It’s The Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics and it’s the D.I.Y. beating heart of Los Angeles’s comedy

BY INVITE ONLY, THIS IS A PRIVATE EVENT
MORENO BHLV CHAMPAGNE RECEPTION: 7-9pm
PELIGROSO TEQUILA TASTING: 7-9pm

EXHIBITION INSTALLATION : (OPEN TO THE PUBLIC) APRIL 27 – May 10

Beverly Hills, April 2013

Keiko Noah Maestro at Mouche Gallery along with Michael Florian, creative director of Mouche Gallery, invite you to get sucked into the vortex of the award winning viral video sensationI Fink U Freekyworld of Roger Ballen and Die Antwoord at Mouche Gallery. Installation opens on April 26, 2013 during theParis Photo LA 2013. The primitive, provocative paintings and drawings at the core of the composition of these exquisite photographs pose center stage and take on a life of their own at this installation at Mouche Gallery.

MASTERS OF REALITY - “If someone punches you in the face fokken hard, it makes you stop thinking about everything except, ‘What the fok just happened?’” ¥o-landi (Die Antwoord) “Suddenly we stopped liking all the music and art we had made up till this point and decided to throw it all away. This new dark comic book world was the fokken answer! We wanted to move into this world and leave our old reality behind. This new world was so alien but also so strangely familiar. So mysterious comforting and exciting.A letter from Die Antwoord, to Roger Ballen.

Ballen is one of the most important photographers of his generation. Over the past thirty years hisdistinctive style of photography has evolved using a simple square format in stark and beautiful black and white. Ballen has long approached unexpected realities with an unflinching and empathetic style, using dark imagery and taking a psychological approach to his craft. Ballen considers black and white photography as a minimalist art form, which provides an abstract way to interpret and transform what one may refer to as reality or disturbing psychodramas.

Roger BALLEN’s photographs have been shown in, and collected by some of the most prestigious institutions including the Tate, Smithsonian, Centre Georges Pompidou, Victoria & Albert Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Creative Director at Mouche, Michael Florian will be helping Keiko transform the gallery to create a very special welcome for Roger Ballen, and Ballen/Die Antwoord Collectors. Florian brings years of experience, having worked with some of the world’s most prominent photographers including, Pierre and Gilles, Mario Testino, Ellen Von Unverth, David LaChappelle, to name a few.

About Mouche Gallery

The Aritist is the Muse at Mouche! The artist is our inspiration, says Maestro (Owner) Keiko Noah. Keiko conducts the gallery as a space for creativity & collaboration for inspiring minds to launch, celebrate and embrace art in its ever expanding form. It always starts with the vision, the artist, the eye behind the lens and brush. Discovering the eyes, voids, voice of the artist, has taken the gallery on a magical adventure with every exhibition. This is at the core of Mouche Culture. Vive la Mouche!

About Die Antwoord

This high energy, rave rap outfit from South Africa caused the Internet to explode when, “I Fink You Freeky” and “Zef Side” hit YouTube and spread like tuberculosis, with over 26 Million Views each. Thevirus analogies can’t stop there, as everything about Die Antwoord is totally infectious, be it the music, the tattoos, the hair, the Zef style, or the Afrikaans slang. Given that Die Antwoord translates from Afrikaans to the Answer, it begs one to ask: What’s the question? Probably something along the lines of, “Are these two for fokken real?

The announcement back in October that Disney was acquiring LucasFilm for a paltry sum of $4 billion dollars was completely drowned out by a collective ‘geek-gasim’ heard around the world following their second surprise of the day. A new hope had sprung to life within us all when the studio dropped the bomb that they plan to continue on with the original “Star Wars” trilogy, starting with Episode VII in 2015. When I first heard that someone other than Lucas would have control of the reins over the project, I have to admit I thought it was some sort of sick twisted early Halloween ‘trick.’ Possibly perpetrated by a group like “Anonymous,” or those Chinese cyber hackers who keep messing with the D.O.J. When reality finally did set in, I (like many of you I’m sure) began to feel equal amounts of excitement and apprehension. I think we’re all still a little scarred and gun shy from the prequel atrocities, am I right? Does meeeza have to explainzza? (Yeah, that’s right. I went there.)

sw1

As an avid reader of comics, and Darkhorse’s “Star Wars” titles in particular, my biggest issue with the acquisition and the subsequent revamping of the extended universe is encapsulated in the dilemma of the following question: Does this mean that all the hard work of many gifted graphic artists and writers, who contributed to what was once considered cannon, now null and void? I’m going to have to table that discussion for the time being, definitely a soapbox for another day.

sw4Since the announcement, the internet rumor mill has been working harder than a ‘man-scaping’ wookie, and conjecture is the current name of the game. And speaking of names, the exclusivity for a director shuffled through anyone who has ever had any interest in sci-fi what-so-ever, or has looked through the correct end of a camera. Every movie site was batting around names like; Jon Favreau, to Guillermo del Toro, Christopher Nolan, David Yates, to Zack Snyder, Brad Bird, Mathew Vaughn, Joss Whedon, to the obvious candidate of Lucas’ bestest frenemy Steven Spielberg… you get the idea. Of course we now know that the resuscitator of the “Star Trek” franchise himself, J.J. Abrams (Hey J.J., why no call back for the sequel? I’m so not feeling the love.), is set to direct a script written by Oscar winner Michael Arndt (“Toy Story 3″/”Little Miss Sunshine”). That’s just the beginning though, with casting and major plot points still up in the air –  crazy kooks like Super Shadow are going to continue to litter the web with inaccurate or out-and-out false information leading up to the very first trailer of the film and beyond. So let’s see if we can sift through the endless barrage of “bantha poo-doo” speculation, and separate the Sith Myths from the Force Facts.

How does the fundraising part of the evening work?

What exactly is Reach Out and Read?

http://RORLosAngeles.org Reach Out and Read is an evidence-based nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.

Reach Out and Read builds on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers to develop critical early reading skills in children, beginning at 6 months of age. The 3.8 million families served annually by “Reach Out and Read” read together more often, their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies, with stronger language skills, and better prepared to succeed.

Pediatric healthcare providers (including pediatricians, family physicians, and pediatric nurse practitioners) are trained in the three-part Reach Out and Read model to promote early literacy and school readiness:

  • In the exam room, doctors and nurses speak with parents about the importance of reading aloud to their young children every day, and offer age-appropriate tips and encouragement.
  • The pediatric primary care provider gives every child 6 months through 5 years old a new, developmentally-appropriate children’s book to take home and keep.
  • In the waiting room, displays, information, and gently-used books create a literacy-rich environment. Where possible, volunteer readers entertain the children, modeling for parents the pleasures – and techniques – of reading aloud

Thank you very much for your time.
