Things To Do This Week: 01.26.2015


Jack + Eliza are right out of a movie: after meeting at the tender age of 13 in a friend's garage band, the New York born-and-bred duo quickly became friends and collaborators. With ears tuned to the '50s and '60s, they churn out dreamy, stripped down surf-rock, most recently with help of producer Chris Zane (known for his work with Passion Pit and Mumford & Sons). Their debut EP "No Wonders" came out in October.

Friday, January 30th from 7-9pm
The Standard, East Village

Untilled, Pierre Huyghe, 2014

French Conceptual artist, Pierre Huyghe is known for distorting and shaping reality through his films, public interventions, and explorative work of living systems. This exhibition is the artist's first major retrospective, which has traveled from Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2014) and the Centre Pompidou, Paris (2013). Each exhibition is site-specific, organized thematically, and covers more than two decades of Huyghe's career. Rain, fog, snow, live bees and Huyghe's rescued dog, named Human (both shown above) are to be encountered in the open.

Until February 22, 2015. Closed Wednesdays.
5905 Wilshire Blvd.
