Max Rain 2013

Max Rain is fascinated by Los Angeles in its ability to seamlessly blend contrasting aspects of its cultural environment. Rain reaches outwards into the daily life of the city in order to capture fragments of the cosmopolitan story. With broken shards of sidewalk from Hollywood Blvd lining the sides of his thick ceramic works, Rain uses the material presence of the city to platform its ephemeral tableaus.

Falling behind in a fast paced environment can become a whirlwind of increasing isolation. For Jung Hwa Lee, the overwhelming social bearings of Los Angeles incite hermetic versions of the city. Lee blends idealizations with insecurities to build Los Angeles as it exists in her own personal space. Thus the city is experienced through a dream of its escape. Lee positions porcelain sculptures before flat images as conflicting, intertwined realities.

Feeling as though they are both a part of and apart from the city of Los Angeles, Jung Hwa Lee and Max Rain explore splitting the difference in Apart of the City.

Max Rain received his BFA from San Jose State University in 2007 and his MFA from UCLA in 2011. Rain has exhibited in the US and Ireland. Jung Hwa Lee received her BFA/MFA from Hongik University in Korea and in 2011 received an additional MFA from UCLA. Lee has exhibited widely in the US, Korea and Japan.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
