Gifts of the Spirit: Prophecy, Automatism and Discernment

On Thursday, January 25th, Vibiana and The Broad will host two showings of the art performance, Gifts of the Spirit: Prophecy, Automatism and Discernment, continuing The Broad’s exploration of Yayoi Kusama’s work. This immersive, site-specific performance by Los Angeles-based artist Ron Athey reflects on Athey’s Pentecostal upbringing and Kusama’s idea of “self-obliteration.” Athey’s vision for an “automatic writing machine” will be brought to life in collaboration with the composer Sean Griffin as a performance made up of 16 writers, six typists, a hypnotist, vocalists, and musicians. In this work, the artist “completes” his memoir (“Gifts of the Spirit”) together in ecstatic communion with his collaborators. This living machine makes a tightly choreographed and scored visual spectacle bringing together writing, reading, and listening into a layered performative action resulting in a collectively authored text and sound score.

Gifts of the Spirit is co-produced by VOLUME, and has been made possible in part by a grant from the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts. Guest-curated for VOLUME by Jennifer Doyle.

Luxe Launch 2017 Tabletop “Luscious Romance” Featured on Strictly Weddings

This 2017 Luxe Launch tabletop is featured on Strictly Weddings:

“For this rich and opulent tablescape, the use of a deep, rich eggplant hue was utilized to create an extra wow-factor with a bold color punch. You can see how this shade was incorporated into the scene from the floral to the choice of accessories, like the napkin, plate, candles, glassware, and even the low votive candles. These strong accents were added to the table and heighten the mauve undertones of the linen allowing for a romantic touch to shine through. This allowed for the overall look of the tablescape design to have a more rich and sumptuous feel.”

EAST ROOM
The East Room is a versatile event space with a modern layout. The rectangular main hall runs parallel to an open JennAir kitchen, with sleek design and top of the line appliances, a 65” TV and SONOS sound system. The room leads to a patio with up-close views of Vibiana. The East Room is a perfect place to host a spirited cocktail party, a daytime corporate meeting and post-meeting fete, or an immersive Chef’s Table dining experience. The East Room can accommodate 30 guests for a seated dinner and 70 guests for a standing cocktail reception.

CARDINAL’S QUARTERS
The Cardinal’s Quarters is our most historic room, as it is the renovated salon that once belonged to the Rectory’s former Cardinals. These private quarters breathe romance into the space, with a working fireplace, hand-carved detailing, and deep teal-hued walls. The Cardinal’s Quarters also features an en-suite restroom, a wide balcony, perched atop the Redbird Courtyard, with vistas of Vibiana and Downtown’s architectural backdrop enhancing the majestic quality of the space.

The Bishop’s Perch features modern décor in the square dining room, flanked by its own en-suite restroom and a cozy garden patio, where Vibiana’s belfry and the Financial District skyscrapers illuminate the evening sky. The Bishop’s Perch can accommodate 20 seated and 30 for a standing cocktail reception.

THE NEST
The Nest evokes the feeling of hosting guests in your own home. Upon entering, guests are greeted into an open JennAir kitchen, leading out onto our portico lounge and patio dining spaces.
