20140505213706-mike_kelley_aah_youth Some Closing Thoughts on the Mike Kelley Retrospective (MOCA Geffen, Los Angeles)  
by
Mike Kelley at MOCA Geffen Contemporary March 31st - July 28th
Posted 9/1/14

To borrow a thought from Deleuze and Guattari, art is not chaos, but a composition of chaos that makes possible a wide range of unpredictable new emotions and ideas. It pushes at the borders of the imagination, inviting new ways of seeing, and sharping our capacities for critical reflection. Truly powerful art may even change how we perceive our world, and re-situate our agency within it. The Mike Kelley retrospective (currently on view at LA MoCA), reminds me of a quote by filmmaker David Lyn... [more]

A Boy Scout Jamboree At Subliminal Projects http://www.laimyours.com/46608/a-boy-scout-jamboree-at-subliminal-projects/ " Duane Paul’s huge sculpture of various colored, fragmented scouts have similar effects. Paul’s piece hints at a less overt theme in the show, one that gets outside of the organization’s anti-gay agenda: minorities in American boy scouts have only existed on the margins. His colorful and quietly confrontational figures hit every element of the show–rainbows, black bodies, whit... [more]

     As many already know, I am curating the all photography group show, "F8 and be there," at Cannery Row Studios in Redondo Beach.      We had an interesting experience while putting the placards by the art tonight (Fri, Aug 2).

It is one of the 16 photographs from the India Series by Hill Street Studios photographers Lawrence Manning.      If you have time tomorrow, Saturday, Aug 4, come by... [more]

There are some great paintings by lessor known artists on display at the gallery right now. Walk around one of the modular walls and there are prints by Jasper Johns and a pristine example of Oldenburg's Profile Airflow. It is worth stopping by while the show is up. Many artists are in the show but surprisingly they all work very well together. There are some great Rupert Garcia's that I have never seen before.  A wide mix of work. [more]

Posted 8/14/10

This review is by Kathy M.Y. Pyon of The Los Angeles Times photo blog - Framework. In “Le Tour,”  Brent Humphreys’ first Los Angeles exhibition, the Austin, Texas-based photographer looks at the Tour de France. The collection of 15 fantastical works on display at the Clark | Oshin Gallery at the Icon offers a perspective lacking in regular coverage of the massive event. From 2004 to 2009, Humphreys captured photographs of this event that go  beyond the cycling.  The quality of the photography is artistic. The colors ... [more]
