Never Look Away
The recent film "Never Look Away," loosely based on the life of Gerhard Richter, traces an artist's complex journey from repression to freedom. More...


“Contemporary Artists Explore Opera”
“Bel Canto: Contemporary Artists Explore Opera” examines the stories, traditions and themes of this most highly refined musical form, as well as the aesthetics, social influence and cultural impact of performance. It’s an immersive experience of luxury and decadence. More...


Leigh Merrill
Leigh Merrill manufactures a sense of uncertainty from a photo-collage technique that results in completely fabricated realities drawn from monochromatic architectural studies and all-over foliage. More...


“Art in the Age of the Pilchuck Glass School”
“Metaphor into Form: Art in the Age of the Pilchuck Glass School,” could be the first of numerous exhibitions drawn from the Rebecca and Jack Bearoya collection. The selection here provides an able introduction to the Pilchuck phenomenon. More...


Javier Valle Pérez
Javier Valle Pérez' visual narrative blends a childlike style with brilliant color and vigorously interacting forms. More...


Dancing Across Genres, Medium Serving Message
When artists have something intensely personal to express, sometimes they do so in a medium different from the one they're most associated with. Richard Speer cites painter Sherrie Wolf's dance choreography and Marne Lucas' shift from photography to film as exceptional examples of just such a leap. More...


Jeff Krueger and Terri Rolland
Jeff Krueger and Terri Rolland both work with clay, but in very different ways. Krueger's ceramic sculptures recall familiar domestic objects, but are also biomorphic abstractions. Rolland's acrylic and clay abstract paintings build on soft, rounded lines and shapes. More...


Allen Ruppersberg
This retrospective of first generation conceptualist Allen Ruppersberg proves that conceptualism need be neither dull nor repetitive. More...


Hadley Radt
Hadley Radt’s modestly-sized abstractions somehow conjure the mysteries of time and space from economic means — liquid ink and acrylic pen marker on rectangular clayboard or circular wooden panels — and obsessive technique. More...


Lisa Solomon
A blend of personal identities is personal for Lisa Solomon, whose varied array of media investigates the effects of WW II internment camps. More...


Douglas Miles
In "Everyday Sacred" Douglas Miles prompts us to consider troubling issues of historical displacement and contemporary marginalization of indigenous people. Depiction of everyday realities is favored over romantic embellishment. More...


The Pros and Cons of Juried Exhibitions
If juried exhibitions offer emerging artists for exposure oapotuntites, they also can place them at the mercy of unscrupulous operators. More...


David A. Clark and Yuri Fukouka
Clark's arrows are both symbol and directional pattern. Fukouka's porcelain sculptures cluster thin curls into flowers. More...


Charles White
Currently the subject of a LACMA retrospective, Charles White's aesthetic progeny are popping up elsewhere around L.A. to amplify his message. More...


“Solidary and Solitary”
"Solidary and Solitary" offers a fresh look at the development of African-American art through the lens of a private collection. More...


Sterling Ruby
Sterling Ruby builds big things that feel like they sprang right out of the earth, move easily from pop culture references to art historical critique, not to mention from ceramic to urethane to wood. We want to move along with them from room to room. More...


Takashi Murakami
There is plenty for Takashi Murakami fans to cozy up to here, but go upstairs to see where the artist is going now. He gets self-reflexive in works that can include textual narrative that has some edge, even if he still wants us to smile. More...


Floyd Newsum
Floyd Newsum's style and subject matter are deliberately childlike, but graphically complex. Their links to folk art are as clear as to modernist surrealism and expressionism. Personal and family history also run up against the larger canvas of the racial history of this country. More...


“Beyond the Framework”
The five artists in “Beyond the Framework” seek precision of geometric abstraction, but also to reflect on topical issues. More...
