> DESCRIPTION

Culling from LACMA’s permanent collection, the exhibition takes as its starting point Gabriel Orozco’s sculpture Lost Line (1993-1996). Orozco describes the piece as “the opposite of a static monument,” in effect a “sculpture as a body in motion.”

Lost Line uses Orozco’s fragile and mutable form as premise to bring together works from the collection, including large-scale sculpture and painting installations, film, photography, and works on paper. The works in gathered in the exhibition share a desire to complicate typical representations of landscape, the built environment, and the monumental. 

Artists include Uta Barth Ingrid Calame, Lecia Dole-Recio, Shannon Ebner, Harold Edgerton, Llyn Foulkes, Mark Flores, Buckminster Fuller, Mark Hagen, Alfred Jensen, Barbara Kasten, Jim Lambie, David Lamelas, Steve McQueen, Yunhee Min, Ruben Ochoa, Claes Oldenburg, Dennis Oppenheim, Gabriel Orozco, Sheila Pinkel, Ed Ruscha, Analia Saban, Erin Shirreff, Robert Smithson, Frances Stark, Koen van den Broek, and James Welling.
