Though emerging creatives view collectors as a golden ticket to success, stardom, or just their next meal, mid-career artists view their relationship more as a shared dialogue constantly shifting the scope and focus of their endeavors. A shroud of mystery often pervades collectors, radiating with the air of inherited privilege and market control. Susan Hancock, the owner of the former Royal/T Gallery in LA’s Culver City... [more]

Mira Schor at Lyles & King March 18th - April 24th
Posted 3/22/16

Paul of Tarsus wrote, “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know...” This passage from Corinthians comes to mind when looking at the recent work of Mira Schor, now at Lyles & King. Schor’s paintings, dark, compactly strong meditations on mortality, power, and language, show an arti... [more]

Schrager first came to prominence under the pseudonym Sarah White, better known as the "Naked Therapist." This bold combination of internet-based performance art and genuine healing therapy achieved notoriety because Schrager (as Sarah White) and the p... [more]

Womanist is to feminist as purple is to lavender. –Alice Walker I am not asking who I am. I’m a Black woman and expansive in my Blackness and my queerness as Blackness and queerness are always already expansive. –E. Jane I first encountered Alice Walker’s womanist theory as a sophomore in college. I was wide eyed and enrolled in a bunch of Africana Studies courses trying to “find” myself as they say. It was a glorious journey which, in hindsight, was capsto... [more]
