Conversing in Clay: Ceramics from the LACMA Collection explores the medium through 14 case studies, placing historical works in visual dialogue with contemporary examples to illuminate symbolic meanings, technical achievements, and resonances throughout time. The exhibition examines how artists working today relate to international artistic traditions of the medium, both through deliberate references to the past and by engaging with aspects of clay’s materiality that have inspired makers over the centuries. https://www.lacma.org/art/exhibition/conversing-in-clay
  • Yassi Mazandi: Language of the Birds. August 14, 2022 – June 19, 2023. A kinetic sculptural work by Yassi Mazandi, Language of the Birds takes its name and theme from an epic 12th-century Persian poem by Farid al-Din ‘Attar. The stark, abstract bronze sculptures are suspended from the north side of the Resnick Pavilion. Stripped of feathers, Mazandi’s dramatic birds evoke ‘Attar’s powerful mystical poem universalizing the quest for meaning. They also call to mind today’s key issue—climate change—and the ways in which it imperils many avian species and contributes to human migration. https://www.lacma.org/art/exhibition/yassi-mazandi
  • Objects of Desire: Photography and the Language of Advertising. September 4 – December 18, 2022. Objects of Desire: Photography and the Language of Advertising traces the artistic manipulation of advertising, the most powerful, mainstream visual language. Since the 1970s, creative innovations led to dramatic shifts in the possibilities for photography as artistic expression, as photo-based artists reworked advertising strategies to challenge the increased commodification of daily life, and later to appropriate the command these images have over the viewer/consumer. https://www.lacma.org/art/exhibition/objects-of-desire
  • The Space Between: The Modern in Korean Art. September 11, 2022 – February 19, 2023.

The second of three major Korean art exhibitions of Hyundai Motor’s Korean Art Scholarship initiative, The Space Between spans the arc of European-influenced art via Japan in the Korean Empire (1897–1910) and colonial period (1910–45), explores American influences absorbed throughout the Korean War (1950–53), and provides a glimpse into the beginning of the contemporary. https://www.lacma.org/art/exhibition/space-between-modern-korean-art

New Exhibits at MOCA (Downtown L.A.)

  • Tala Madani: Biscuits. September 10, 2022 - February 19, 2023. MOCA is organizing the first North American survey of Iranian-born artist Tala Madani’s paintings and animations.

  • Garrett Bradley: American Rhapsody. September 10, 2022 - February 19, 2023. Garrett Bradley: American Rhapsody is the first solo museum presentation of the work of Los Angeles and New Orleans-based artist and filmmaker Garrett Bradley.  The exhibition features a selection of recent single and multi-channel films and videos, including America (2019), in which Bradley constructs a visual archive of early African American cinema and poignantly asks what it might mean to model a history of black visuality and representation that privileges depictions of pleasure over spectacles of pain. https://www.moca.org/exhibition/garrett-bradley-american-rhapsod
  • Judith F. Baca: World Wall. September 10, 2022 - February 19, 2023. Celebrated Chicana artist Judith F. Baca began her collaborative, portable mural World Wall: A Vision of the Future Without Fear in 1987. Baca painted the first four ten-by-thirty-foot canvas panels; as the work traveled abroad, artists and community groups from Finland, Russia, Israel and Palestine, Mexico and Canada contributed five additional panels, employing figurative and symbolic visual vocabularies to depict a vision of the future without fear. All nine panels will be shown at MOCA in an enveloping installation. Significantly, this exhibition in the artist’s hometown of Los Angeles is the first-ever complete presentation of this monumental project. https://www.moca.org/exhibition/judith-f-baca-world-wall

  • Dutch Drawings from a Collector’s Cabinet.

The legacy of representing Mary is also shown through the venerated image of the Virgin of Guadalupe in the Americas, revealing how Mary provides different meanings for viewers across time. https://www.getty.edu/visit/cal/events/ev_3424.html
  • Códice Maya de México. October 18, 2022–January 15, 2023. Around 900 years ago, a Maya scribe made Códice Maya de México, a sacred book that tracked and predicted the movements of the planet Venus.

November 15, 2022–February 19, 2023. Los Angeles–based photographer Uta Barth has spent her career exploring subtle changes of light as it illuminates various surfaces, documenting the passage of time and investigating the differences between how the human eye and the camera perceive the world.

For this presentation, Bass has conceived a newly commissioned public sculpture in South Los Angeles that features sixteen blue glass panels adapted from the original #sky #nofilter photographs. Together they form a participatory analemmatic sundial, where the viewer’s body functions as the shadow-casting element that determines the time of day. Each sundial panel is engraved with text drawn from Bass’s original #sky #nofilter writings that will cast its own shadow and offer a linguistic point of reflection. https://caamuseum.org/exhibitions/2022/chloe-bass-sky-nofilter-hindsight-for-a-future-america
  • Justen LeRoy: Lay Me Down in Praise. September 17, 2022 – January 21, 2023.

LeRoy layers clips of Black performers with images of geological activity. Through this juxtaposition, the artist considers how resistance and regeneration inhabit the wordless screeches of the Earth and the history of Black sound. https://caamuseum.org/exhibitions/2022/justen-leroy-lay-me-down-in-praise

Eleven years later, while engrossed in a series of works that depict his young lover, Marie-Thérèse Walter, Picasso painted Woman with a Book, one of the most direct homages to Ingres that he had made to date. For the first time, these two extraordinary, interrelated paintings will be displayed together in a special exhibition entitled Picasso Ingres: Face to Face. A partnership between the National Gallery, London, and the Norton Simon Museum, this exhibition explores Picasso’s long-standing fascination with Ingres and the generative process that resulted from his confrontation with a celebrated work of art. https://www.nortonsimon.org/exhibitions/2020-2029/picasso-ingres-face-to-face/
