This new group show includes some really great work by a wide range of artists.  One of the more interesting shows that I have seen in this gallery, and really show the versitility of the work that gets displayed in this gallery.  The three pieces at the front of the gallery, by Carlos Donjuan and Rupert Garcia, particulary the piece entitled, Mao, 1977, by Garcia. These works really pull you into the gallery, and as you move toward the back the works continues to catch the eye.  The most interst... [more]

John Divola: On Our Los Angeles Watchlist

(Image: John Divola, DSB, 2008; © Gallery Luisotti) John Divola (b. 1949, Los Angeles) John Divola has made inevitable decay a central theme of his photography for more than 30 years. In Divola’s photographs of Suprematist-style black circles in abandoned white buildings, creation and destruction are held in delicate equilibrium. The all-white rooms, redolent of the iconic galleries in which Modern art is conventionally displayed, are tattered and derelict, as if the inhabitants have long since... [more]

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/culturemonster/2011/08/art-review-chain-letter-at-shoshana-wayne-gallery.html A chain letter is a message sent in an effort to induce friend and stranger alike to pass it on, often under pain of punishment or promise of benefit. Today it's a handy, analog metaphor for digital social networks. In June, artists Doug Harvey and Christian Cummings sent a chain letter (actually, a chain email) to 10 artists each one admired, inviting them to show up and participate... [more]

Posted 2/9/11

Buffing censorship at Crewest Sadly Los Angeles is not unfamiliar with censorship. Mexican muralist David A. Siqueiros’ América Tropical was whitewashed in 1932 because the mural was “unpleasant” and it did not fit the civic leaders’ idea of the romantic and idealized past they wanted to convey to the tourists arriving at El Pueblo de Los Angeles. It is unfortunate that seventy-eight years later artists are still facing censorship. Writers, photographers, artists, academics, and art historians j... [more]
