It’s been slow lately—not many openings and not much to see in Culver City, Chinatown, or any other gallery-heavy LA neighborhood. But late summer art scene lethargy is rapidly ending and I’m unusually excited about September. What I’m most looking forward to: Cycling Apparati, the joint venture by Solway Jones Gallery and High Energy Constructs, partially inspired by a Duchamp piece that it includes, promises to introduce a heady, surreal, idiosyncratic span of artwork from an unconventional span of artists; the coexisting exhibitions of Lisa Lapinski and Eduardo Consuegra, two almost always ineffable object makers, at Richard Telles could end up being an delightfully esoteric brain tease; Julian Hoeber’s solo show at Blum and Poe is alluring because he slips so unexpectedly in and out of brutality, wit, and poetics that its always a surprise to see what he does next. There are also a slew of gauge-the-moment style group shows opening, including one Carl Berg and one at Mark Moore. September should be a good month to be an art-viewing itinerate.
