Celestial Ash: Assemblages from Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA 90036
What remains in the wake of a dying star? The legacy of Joseph Cornell, known for his ethereal shadow boxes, is the tie that binds the artists in this extraordinary exhibit. Curated by Kristine McKenna, noted journalist and art historian, Celestial Ash features artwork by Los Angeles-rooted artists Exene Cervenka, Gail Greenfield Randall, Matjames, and Michael C. McMillen, who created assemblage-based works that are lyrical, personal, and deeply emotional. As the celestial ash of a great star, yet individual all their own, these artists prove the enduring inspiration of Cornell's work and the emotive potential of assemblage.
