An implication of age compels us to craft histories for the artworks in A Handful of Dust. Their materials suggest a simpler time—products of earth, of metal, of wood—and their shapes imply function. Natural hues of a limited and subdued palette pervade, as if these artworks are remains all found in one place, all from one civilization.

To be honest, I'm not very good at preparing for things.  I do manage to pack socks and a toothbrush, though the only items I figure to be truly indispensable are a passport and maybe some pants.  Everything else can be reckoned with.  I aspire to detail-oriented readiness, long for the interest and ability to compose excel sheets that excel and enumerate neat lists with reassuring checkmarks next to each accomplished task, but this is sadly not the case. I can be distracted by a particularl... [more]

Los Angeles, a city of developers and opportunists, store-front mystics and varyingly legal working-class migrants, is also by some lights a city of artists. The Hammer Museum recently unveiled its first Los Angeles biennial, an inward-looking affair solely showcasing the work of locals. Can an exhibition thus conceived add up to anything more than narcissism? Sure, but whether this is possible in LA, a city with a profoundly neurotic self-regard, is a question left open by the biennial dubbed M... [more]

It has been a rough start to the new millennium, and sadly art survey shows have failed to reflect the context in which art makers and viewers live. Thankfully Lauri Firstenberg of LAXART has remedied the disconnect with the 2008 California Biennial. Before you walk in the door, Sam Durant's banners (in English and Spanish) hijack the OC's civic-boosterism-via-banner-blight, by reminding residents that their comfortable homes were built by the sweat of an undocumented workforce, on a piece of...

Desertshore. Everything turns to sand - dry and parched. Writer/curator Jan Tumlir curated “Desertshore” at Cal State Los Angeles’ Luckman Gallery with Nico’s 1970 album in mind. All 15 of the artists featured in the show are Los Angele-based artists and it shows. It really makes sense; we live in a city built on top of a desert, kept alive by constant rebirth. The works deal with urban and desert landscapes, destruction, decay and rebuilding. Parts of the exhibition summon thoughts of Mad Max,... [more]
