Opening January 20

Synchronicity Space is pleased to announced the exhibition, “Man, Such As We Know Him, Is A Computer,” which will be on display in Mastodon Mesa at the Pacific Design Center from January 20 - February 27. This exhibition showcases artists whose work explores the relationships between technology, the culture of the internet’s past, present and future, and the questionable need for viewing art in the context of a gallery.

The exhibition features an installation by artist, Spencer Longo, transforming the interior of the gallery space to communicate the internet’s ability to transform itself into a physical space. Incorporating sound, projected images as well as pieces on paper to fill the space, the artist seeks for the audience to be viscerally taken over.

The main exhibition showcases a group of artists that make work in different media and multi-media addressing technology in their work. We will be exhibiting an array of work that includes sound, video, websites, drawings, and paintings. With the increasing proliferation of the internet worldwide, we have experienced a global connection and rapid cultural malleability unlike any other time period. These artists have found a way to adapt to the ever-changing current of our technological culture, either by commenting on it or exemplifying its benefits towards the creative process. The exhibition will be on display from January 20 to February 25, 2011.
The artists include:

The opening reception will take place at Mastodon Mesa in the Pacific Design Center January 20, from 5 to 8:30pm.

The Pacific Design Center is located at 8687 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, CA 90069.

GENERAL DELIGHT - New Video Works, Comedy and Otherwise - June 26



WHAT: Come and celebrate General Delight’s first birthday with the screening of 10 short films featuring interactive elements (Hint-Phantom of the Opera sing-a-long).
Some of the short films include:
  • A lascivious magician that makes husbands disappear and then beds their wives
  • The awkward moments after an inter-racial swingers party
  • Paula Deen facing off against the Busch Bean’s Golden Retriever
  • A tribute to porn’s greatest boom operator
  • A tickle fight that goes on for too, too long.

WHO: Michael Cera (Juno, Superbad, Youth in Revolt) and Elaine Carroll (Very Mary-Kate). More names to be announced shortly!

WHEN: Saturday, June 26th, 8:00-11:00 p.m.
Screening 8:30 p.m.
Reception (Open Bar) 9:30 p.m.

WHERE: Synchronicity Space
4306 Melrose Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90029

WHY: This event is a culmination of General Delight’s creative output to date. A few films have been circling various sites on the web to much acclaim, but with this event they are releasing work that is even more ambitious and exciting.

General Delight encompasses four film makers based in Los Angeles and New York who make comedy shorts. The films are provocative, absurd and euphoric. They describe their work as, “An aurora borealis Disneyland fireworks display with a swim up bar, free refills”. Their videos are a balance between high and low, as they explore issues of technology, sexuality, pop culture and how we try to transcend our own confines through fantasy, imagination and techno music.

Humans and their pets are welcome to view these works Saturday May 8th from 12pm to 11pm.

The Fake is also considered to be one of Hollywood’s most preeminent comedy venues. Los Angeles magazine described it to be one of the best places to see comedy in the country.

From 7 to 11pm, Synchronicity Space will host a reception for the artists and their guests. There will be complimentary wine and pet snacks.

At 9:00pm The Fake Gallery will present a free special edition of their hit otherworldly sideshow, “The Showatorium”.

April 3 - May 1

Opening Reception April 3

7 - 11pm

From the mushheads who have broughten you such tele/videvisual creambominations as Xavier: Renegade Angel ([adult swim]), Wonder Showzen (MTV), Final Flesh (Drag City) unt Hands of God (God); the soundmares of United We Doth (Birdman Records); the spastic dancing failures of various art attempts and one-offs bedazzling the nations glorious hole, comes the ultimate attempt at re-creating the maullification of our “society”. PFFR presents Legacy IIX.

Godard got through the Louvre in less than 60 seconds. We took it upon, nay, up on ourselves to run through every mall in 'merica in under a minute. The intake was a full frontal assault on our collective mind’s eye, that visually ralphed on the forgotten pages where it hath been discovered by our scientist, nay, our fact fuckers that the dinosaurs do in fact exist. So do we as well and here is the astroidal proof (pre-collision and post-dustings) for your consideration. We’ve swallowed ourselves whole and hope to pass any savings unto your naked chests for this one. This, Legacy VIII.

So, please let us take over, nay, take under the world’s highest hopes/arts to bemuse and extricate the yuckity yucks that are most needed in a time like this. If we can make you laugh, then shame on us. But if we can make you cry, in fear, then let’s hang out more often….



An opening reception for "Legacy IIX" will take place at Synchronicity Space on April 3rd from 7pm to 11pm. Synchronicity is located at 4306 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA, 90029. Any questions please call 323-264-8960 or email info@syncspacela.com.

One of the sweetest dogs ever, Barnaby Vonderheide (humans are Helen and Katie Vonderheide) has fallen victim to canine oral melanoma. On Friday, March 11th, he had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his mouth. As a result, Barnaby has lost his lower mandible.

Leading up to this surgery, Barnaby was given several tests including blood work, urine analysis, and a therasic study. Thankfully, the cancer had not spread and the surgeon is hopeful that he can remove the cancer through surgery.

The culmination of all these tests and Barnaby's surgery have left Helen and Katie with a huge amount of vet bills. This FUNdraiser is to help offset these costs, because we all know that if this was our beloved dog (or cat, or child!) we'd all do the same thing. We're just happy that Barnaby is going to be ok and will give his humans many more years of love.

We'll provide food, open bar and a fabulous line up of entertainment!

Hot DJ, Tita Poe & Stand-Up Comedy, featuring two of the most hilarious comics in town - Tess Barker www.tessbarker.com and Lizzy Cooperman!
