Small Museum for the American Metaphor


631 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012


Small Museum for an American Metaphor is an exhibition which brings together European perspectives on the American West, and more specifically, the particularities embedded in the idealized fictions surrounding it. The visual argument here is that there is a certain architectonic “idea” that dwells on the celebration of Endlessness as mythicized in the American West. The metaphor is the base for an architecture that blurs the distinction between building and object, collapsing the different scales. It is an architecture that celebrates the fiction of the “wide open” and seeks to re-evaluate/reinterpret the world as a gigantic interior. In that context, a successful intervention is able to define hierarchies, carve out places, and make shared points of reference. The exhibition, much in the tradition of showcasing objects in a defined space, such as a cabinet, “collects”artworks, architectural models, drawings and other elements that consciously fade the distinction between object and representation.

Ultimately it is a show on urban strategies, but starting from the conviction that these very strategies can only be conveyed if presented in an oblique way. The show proposes a method that understands beauty and hedonism not so much as the enemy of hierarchy and organization, but despite all senses of responsibility, its driving force.

Paul Durand-Ruel: Friend and Art Dealer of the Impressionists


5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036


Flavie Durand-Ruel, the great-great-granddaughter of the famous French art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, discusses his innovative principles as an art dealer, his discovery of the Barbizon and Impressionism, and his financial and moral support of the Impressionists for more than 20 years, despite two financial crises. Durand-Ruel developed art trading on a global scale and, as a result of his tireless devotion, purchased more than 10,000 pictures over a 30-year period, approximately one-third of the total number of works produced by the Impressionists.
