DESCRIPTION

Elements of Nature: Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation
June 5-August 29, 2010
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 5, 6-9 pm

Centered around the classical conception that the universe consisted of four basic elements—fire, water, earth, and air—this exhibition explores how contemporary artists have drawn inspiration from these essential, natural states to interpret, replicate, and re-imagine the natural world. This exhibition of international contemporary artists from the collection of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation in Los Angeles, explores diverse aspects of the natural environment inspired by personal experiences, as well as universal concepts. Viewing the world through the unique perspective of the artist, the power and beauty of the environment and the complex human relationship with it, begin to emerge.

The artists featured in the exhibition include: Lita Albuquerque, Peter Alexander, Charles Arnoldi, Lesley Dill, Joe Goode, and Edward Ruscha. Many of these artists are represented in major museum collections, such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MOMA), and The Art Institute of Chicago, among others.

Funding for this exhibition has been provided by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Los Angeles.
