Few objects in Everything Loose Will Land are as they seem. The Graham Foundation in Chicago is the third stop for this show of 1970s art and architecture that characterized the cultural ecology of Los Angeles at the time. The works on display explore space and structure in ways directly influenced by artists’ place and time, their work, in many cases, transforming the conceptual boundaries of design. Curator Sylvia Lavin, Professor of Architectural Theory and History at UCLA, organized the sh... [more]

I've always wanted to make a light that looks like the light you see in your dream. —James Turrell, excerpted from James Turrell: A Retrospective   Art is always stumbling into someone else's dream. At LACMA, be warned of lines and guards; turns out someone else's dream forces you to book a place months in advance, pay $45, sign a waiver to lab-coated girls in exchange for ten or so minutes with flickering lights. Just one of a dozen logistical hiccups. The precision of other people's dream... [more]

“The par is three for every hole,” we were told matter-of-factly, “except number two, which is par seventeen, and number seven, which is par infinity.” I didn’t like the sound of that, but the potential embarrassment of swinging into the night was outweighed by the shame of giving up. We’ll deal with it when we deal with it. Land art is not an exclusively American phenomenon, and neither is miniature golf, but we have muscled ourselves into being primarily associated with them. Land art (or Robert Sm... [more]

Amazing exhibition, so sorry it's closing - ever.  Many works which are 40+ years old are still fresh and mind-boggling: Bruce Nauman's green-lit compressed corridor, from which you emerge seeing everything as pink; Robert Irwin's room with a view of the beach, with cut-outs in the actual glass of the windows; Eric Orr's capsule-shaped room devoid of any light.  Each of these changes the way you see.  You look out Irwin's windows, then out through the glass, feel the ocean breeze, see how you norm...

I used to find the sunroof of my Dad's car fascinating because there was something alluring to a rectangle of natural blue light. I find a similar fascination with James Turrell's ‘sky spaces’, enclosed rooms large enough for 10-15 people where visitors sit on benches and simply look up. These over-sized skylights have always struck me as walking a fine line between intervention and leaving things be, and I could spend hours looking up through them. Ultimately this is Turrell's goal... [more]

      Manmade: Notions of Landscape from the Lannan Collection features the work of nine artists whose work is an exploration of man and the landscape—not landscape in its most literal sense, but landscape as a construction of meanings and relationships that are always morphing, growing, decaying, and exploding. These various facets of landscape include the natural, the cultural, the social, and the political. The Lannan Foundation works related to landscape are never of the sort that is... [more]
