California’s Route 66: Hiding in Plain Sight
Santa Monica History Museum
1350 7th Street
Santa Monica
santamonicahistory.org/route-66-summer-exhibition
Route 66, a 2,448-mile long road connecting Chicago to Los Angeles, became a symbol of the mystique of the open road and an icon of Americana. It figured largely in the history of western expansion in the 20th century, from the desperate 1930s Dust Bowl migration to rambling road trips in the 1950s and 1960s. To illustrate the Route’s history, the exhibition will feature artifacts such as early driving guides, iconic signage and ephemera, and historic photographs from the Santa Monica History Museum Collection. A rare manuscript map for “Proposed Highways,” from the height of the 1920s Good Roads Movement, will also be on display.
“This exhibition aims to go beyond what people know about the Route – or think they know,” says John Klopping, museum manager at the Santa Monica History Museum. “We wanted to highlight some of Route 66’s hidden history, including the stories of the road’s California stopping points and what it was like for minority groups to travel the road.” The exhibition will contain reproductions of the Green Book, a series of guides that enabled safer travel for African Americans from the 1930s-1950s and recently featured in the Oscar-winning film Green Book. Examples of
Route 66’s significance in popular culture through film, literature, and art are on view.

Closes September 1st
Fearless Fashion: Rudi Gernreich
Skirball Cultural Center
2701 North Sepulveda Boulevard
Los Angeles
310 440 4500
Skirball.org
Influential fashion designer Rudi Gernreich created eye-popping designs with bold color and patterns that challenged mid-20th century gender stereotypes–pantsuits and flat shoes for women, caftans for everyone, thongs and “monokinis.”
Gernreich himself fled the Nazis in 1938 to relocate to Los Angeles; once here he became one of the founding members of the trailblazing gay rights advocacy group the Mattachine Society.
The exhibition features more than eighty Gernreich ensembles, along with accessories, original sketches, photographs, ephemera, and newly filmed interviews of friends and colleagues.
All mannequins for this exhibition were custom produced with flat feet—a deviation from industry standard. Flat feet were a design feature Gernreich emphasized, dressing his models barefoot or in sensible short-heeled or flat shoes. Illustrating how Gernreich challenged conventional notions of beauty, identity, and gender, Fearless Fashion: Rudi Gernreich reveals how the designer redefined style in ways that continue to influence fashion today.

Disruptors
Petersen Automotive Museum
6060 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles
http://www.petersen.org
This is a focus on vehicles with a stripped down, minimalist aesthetic from Cool Material favorites like Rem D Koolhaas and Joey Ruiter. It’s an entire collection of vehicles that eschews traditional manufacturing methods, resource allocation and gratuitous complexity in favor of clean yet sophisticated designs that are unlike anything else on the market. If you’re interested in meeting the artists and catching the opening, it’s on June 28th at the Petersen Automotive Museum in LA. The ‘Distruptors’ exhibit will run until March of 2020 if you can’t make it to the opening.
Having adopted the fundamental principles of reductionism, designer Rem D Koolhaas and industrial designer Joey Ruiter apply a minimalist approach to the look of conventional objects in independently conceived, yet complementary ways. Both Koolhaas and Ruiter share a self-imposed mandate to strip all expectation of conformity from products ranging in scope from footwear and furniture to automobiles and motorcycles. Yet while their goals are shared, they pursue them through their own respective companies, United Nude and JRuiter + Studio.
Seizing an opportunity to create (and then cater to) a growing demand among enlightened, progressive consumers for the sophistication of simplicity, Koolhaas and Ruiter have eschewed a traditional design approach and in doing so left themselves free to mold familiar objects in unexpected ways. A happy byproduct of such a practice, their simple designs also obviate many of the production problems that one would expect to encounter had the objects been more traditionally complex.
Together, Koolhaas and Ruiter jointly expose the barriers posed by currently accepted manufacturing methods, which have resulted from binary conceptualizations of production (form versus function), costs (time versus money), and resources (labor versus materials). By eliminating gratuitous complexity, they have imbued their creations with a technical sophistication that could not have been achieved otherwise. Deliberately titled Disruptors, the Petersen Automotive Museum exhibition presents the works of two designers whose markedly different approaches upend the norm by superimposing technology and art on one another.

Winning Numbers: The First, The Fastest, The Famous
Petersen Automotive Museum
6060 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles
http://www.petersen.org
One of the world’s foremost ambassadors of automotive enthusiasm, California-based car aficionado Bruce Meyer has spent decades carefully building a collection of truly superlative vehicles. Preferring the title of “enthusiast” over “collector,” Bruce only acquires cars of substantial importance and emotional impact, often without regard for investment potential. As a result, his stable of classics, hot rods and race cars - while not immense in scale - is among the most significant anywhere. Winning Numbers presents a selection of Bruce’s finest competition vehicles, each with a story as captivating as its beauty. These machines are regularly driven and appear in this exhibition as a testament to Bruce’s passion and ongoing desire to share with others.
