Another exhibition I highly recommend you see is also a short drive south of Los Angeles, at the Manhattan Beach Art Center (through December 30). It’s a solo exhibition by an Italian artist from Naples, Carla Viparelli, curated by Homeira Goldstein. Upon entering the darkened galleries, one is surrounded by a series of paintings and animated videos with mysterious geometric forms slowly converging and interweaving.

Each video plays on a loop for over two minutes, each with its own soundtrack. Viparelli has a degree in Philosophy from the University of Naples, and it has obviously had an impact on her visual imagery. In the galleries, looking at her work, we see and feel that the world is moving, changing, and evolving – and so should we. According to Viparelli, she believes “art is the best way to be a philosopher.” Amen.
