LA ART SHOW 2015 HISTORIC | MODERN | CONTEMPORARY

LA Art Show Cracks the Code of the LA Art Market “After 20 Years, We Know Art in LA...” The LA Art Show is Los Angeles’ Art Show. With FIAC’s recent announcement postponing their first foray into the LA market, it has become increasingly clear the only art fair to crack the code for success in the city is the LA Art Show. Taking place January 14-18, 2015 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, The LA Art Show is a 200,000 square foot platform for fine art that brings in more than 50,000 visitors, eager to see 120 galleries representing 22 countries from North & South America, Europe & Asia. LA is the hottest and quickly becoming the most important art Scene in the US. Many fairs have tried and failed to engage the city’s vibrant market over the years including: Art Platform Los Angeles, The Affordable Art Fair, Pulse, and most recently, the Worldwide Art Fair. Yet none has made a mark like the LA Art Show, which meets the need of this very diverse city with

a comprehensive art experience that has been curated into two distinct sections: Modern & Contemporary and Historic & Traditional Contemporary. Over the years, the show has changed and grown with Los Angeles. With attendance figures climbing annually, the LA Art Show has a proven record for success. Fueled by the show’s production team who, in conjunction with a vetting committee, compile a select group of galleries, the LA Art Show has grown to be the platform for art in the West. The LA Art Show has received media accolades from: the Los Angeles Times, Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, KCET, KPCC, Artnet, Art Daily, NBC Los Angeles, the Orange County Register, The Huffington Post, LA Magazine, The Los Angeles Daily News, The Pasadena Star News, The Daily Breeze, Examiner.com, LAist, Cartwheel Art, Fine Art Connoisseur, Art Nerd and others. In addition, an extensive New York Times article highlighting the Treasures of the Maya Spirit exhibition at our sister event, the Los Angeles, Jewelry, Antique and Design Show. January is your time to be a part of the LA art scene, to participate in the confluence of events that have sprung up to take advantage of the 50,000 art enthusiasts and collectors that visit the LA Art Show.

Whether you are a seasoned collector or merely an admirer of the arts, we are certain that the LA Art Show will provide you with a special experience in the world of Modern, Contemporary, Historic and Traditional Art. We have created the most diverse Art Show in the world. The Modern and Contemporary galleries of the LA ART SHOW represent the present and future of Art and Art Collecting. The “Old Masters” were the upstarts of their time period and a few of today’s artists are sure to be the Old Masters of the future. Art has always been at the forefront of society, bravely going where others feared to tread, whether it was the use of color, texture, composition or materials, artists have always pushed the envelope. It takes a discerning eye and measure of courage to embrace and appreciate the new and the different, and today’s collectors are a brave and appreciative crowd. A show of this magnitude requires coordinated efforts from a myriad of people, and I wish to thank my entire team, whose dedication and hard work made this show possible. I am grateful to all our new participants and to the many great galleries that return each year who travel here so that we may enjoy their spectacular works of art. The LA Art Show is proud to serve as a vehicle for today’s artist to be showcased and displayed. We are pleased to provide our guests with the opportunity to enjoy a unique assortment of creative expression from all corners of the globe. I am proud to welcome you to the 20th edition of the LA Art Show and to celebrate the fertile efforts of the human mind. Enjoy the Show!

LA ART SHOW 2015 HISTORIC | MODERN | CONTEMPORARY

Welcome to the 20th annual LA Art Show, offering you the most diverse experience of stimulating visual art. We are excited to announce that over 120 galleries from across the nation and from 22 different countries will gather to present our 20th anniversary Show, making it truly an exceptional and unique art exhibition. Looking back on my 20 year involvement with the LA Art Show, I am proud and honored to see how the fair has evolved: changed locations, expanded its platform for galleries who represent the vanguard of fine art, and reflected the scope and trajectory of the vibrant Los Angeles art scene. The fair’s reputation—earned over the last two decades—has been manifested by showing work of the highest merit and serving as the only event to strategically incorporate galleries representing diverse art genres to broaden its audience. Enthusiasts with varying tastes from modern and contemporary to historic and traditional, as well as works on paper, sculpture, and installations, are able to see it all under one umbrella. As a perfect complement to our 20th anniversary, this year’s beneficiary is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Our Opening Night Premiere Party, hosted by Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, will honor St. Jude and their lifesaving mission. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Together, we celebrate the ability to help spread the word to our peers and drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90% in the next decade. We continuously develop new projects to strengthen the fair’s commitment to the art world. With the return of Littletopia, stimulating programming and special exhibition content, the LA Art Show offers visitors an opportunity to learn about the political and cultural impact of art, as well as experience unique installations and performances. I would like to thank our incredible host committee, sponsors, media partners, and staff for their dedication and hard work to help the fair continuously grow and thrive. With utmost gratitude, I am thankful to our exhibitors, who continue to discover talent and put their determination behind an ambitious vision. Finally, I thank our attendees, who purchase and appreciate art, and who ultimately determine the success of all our effort. Together, we have made the LA Art Show the longest running and leading art show in the western United States. Sincerely,

Kim Martindale General Manager/Partner LA Art Show

Now and Then: A conversation about the differences in the artistic processes of art from two Cuban artists living in different countries

Speakers: Cuban artists Angel Delgado and Angel Ricardo Ricardo Rios Moderator: Marisa Caichiolo, President of Building Bridges Art Foundation Now and Then explores the artistic processes of two Cuban artists who have produced works of art outside Cuba while still representing their cultural heritage. Angel Delgado’s exile from Cuba compelled him to transform his artistic style while paying homage to Cuban culture. Similarly, Angel Ricardo Ricardo Rios creates large-scale works of art while residing in Mexico. This panel will explore the impact of their conceptual and artistic processes in their works of art, as well as, those who collect their work and who displays them.

Décor à la Mode: Decorators and Clients in Art Deco France

Speaker: Jared Goss Please join author Jared Goss as he examines some of the most colorful figures from the roster of international clients who commissioned high-style French Art Deco interiors during the 1910s, ‘20s, and ‘30s, including silent movie stars, stage actresses, fashion designers, industrialists, explorers, courtesans, and even royalty. Not only will the clients be addressed, but so too will be the specific and spectacular interiors they commissioned as well as the brilliant designers—such as Jean Dunand, Jean-Michel Frank, Henri Rapin, and E-J Ruhlmann—who realized them. This lecture derives from research undertaken for Goss’s book, French Art Deco, a catalogue of nearly one hundred pieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s modern design collection, published in October 2014.

Reinterpretations: A Conversation Between Recent Quilt and Figure Paintings

Panelists: Sedrick Huckaby and Thomas French Sedrick Huckaby’s veneration of the ordinary is exemplified in his 9 x 14 foot painting “Just a Few Patches,” which will be on view at the LA Art Show. This painting monumentalizes a small patch of a quilt made by an African-American woman in the last century, handed down through her family. For Huckaby, these quilts were the African-American women’s form of jazz. Women would sit together making quilts, creating rhythmic patterns and improvising as needed. They created harmony in the quilt. The quilts became more than blankets— they were about community and creativity. Huckaby focuses on the subject of the quilt, expounding on its metaphor for family, faith, and heritage, and its potential to communicate themes of love and reconciliation—to create dialogue bridging generational gaps. In creating “Just a Few Patches,” Huckaby was inspired by the story of George Washington Carver’s conversation with God about the peanut: the revelation of an entire world to discover in the peanut, instead of the futile attempt to comprehend the entire universe. With the quilt as his peanut, Huckaby finds a world to discover in just a few patches. His painted quilts are grandly symbolic, expressionistic and sometimes abstracted —yet poetic and personal—a way to cherish quilts hand-crafted by people and embody their makers. What dialogue is there between the quilt and the portrait? How are these two subjects so closely connected in his work? Join our conversation to learn more!

Panelists: Tamie Okuyama, Toshimitsu Ito, Akira Omori, Kazz Morishita, and Maiko Kitagawa Moderator: Matt Kennedy Five Japanese artists, who are featured among the nine Japanese galleries exhibited at the LA Art Show, will hold an in depth panel discussion focusing on Contemporary Japanese Art: the influence of traditional and contemporary Japanese art on their work in comparison to Western art; their perspectives on current trends in the Japanese contemporary art world; their unique styles of surrealist and pop surrealist painting; photography and sculpture; as well as other forms of contemporary painting.

Mindful Design and the Art of Storytelling

Speaker: Paul Vincent Wiseman PVW and his talented team at TWG have been creating luxurious interior design for over 30 years. How have they created such a rich and diverse portfolio? Why, upon completion of the project, do clients feel so grounded and at peace living in their homes? Why do world-renowned architect Frank Gehry and esteemed architecture critic Paul Goldberger sing the firm’s praises? By sharing the backstory of three exceptional residences, Mr. Wiseman gives you a firsthand look at the answer: “Mindful” design that tells a distinctive story in harmony with the site, the architecture and the needs and dreams of the clients.

Panelists: Li Gang, Contemporary ink artist; Wu Zhan, Curator of Chinese Cultural Media Group Moderator: Weimei Chen, Director of Chinese Art Affairs Presenting a large collection of Li Gang’s ink painting, this conversation between the artist and curator, Wu Zhan, will explore the evolution of Li’s artistic practice in which he takes Western modern and contemporary art styles and transforms them using a traditional medium. Li Gang’s success as a contemporary artist stems from his ability to break through the traditional perceptions of ink and creates a new conceptualization. His contemporary ink art is a classic example of the development of Chinese ink art from the past to present.

line between sponsors and patrons is ever-blurred. In our temporary culture, is the difference even relevant? Where are the Medicis of today, or is it reasonable to expect such ideal patronage? The last year has seen public art developments that were not imaginable even 24 months ago. Some murals have been painted out as unpermitted, some have been given reprieve by City Hall, and some artists couldn’t care less if their murals are legal or not. Money is never far away, as walls have been appropriated, donated, rented, leased, bought and sold. What does history have to teach us about the economics of renaissance and culture? How can the City, artists, commercial enterprise and citizens co-exist in this landscape? Join the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles for a panel discussion, as we explore our contemporary public art scene standing at the crossroads of economics, culture, politics and history.

What is Public Art and Who is it For?

Panelists: Brad Howe, artist; Shana Nys Dambrot, art critic and writer; Rick Robinson, Robbie Conal, Elizabeta Betinski, Margaret Bruning and Frances Anderton. Public Art these days has become increasingly difficult to define, and answers about its arbiters and custodians more difficult to answer. Beyond the conventional purview of the majestic civic plaza sculpture, murals and street art, billboards, private developments, and even more transitory performative works are all dynamic parts of the discourse. Steps from the Downtown business and art districts, the mural culture in the Arts District, and the restored Olympic Freeway Murals, artist Brad Howe (whose work is on view in the Show entrance) and critic Shana Nys Dambrot assemble a panel of artists, curators, and policy-makers to address timely and salient questions like: Who is the public, what constitutes public space, who are the custodians of existing public works, what are the current policies governing the practice in Los Angeles.

The Arts District: The Development of an Art Scene and the Art of Development presented by Cartwheel Art and Arts District Alliance

Panelists: Yuval Bar-Zemer, Mark Borman, Stephen Seemayer, Carlton Davis, Steve Grody, Ashleigh Sumner, Yasmina Cadiz and Weimei Chen. Co-Moderators: Cindy Schwarzstein and Justin Shenkarow Cartwheel Art, along with The Arts District Alliance, a project of Arts District Community Council LA (ADCCLA) presents a panel discussion featuring artists, developers, historians and creative entrepreneurs exploring the history of the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District and how the area's shifting elements contribute to today's changes in one of the city's most unique neighborhoods. The Arts District's past and present mirror the issues facing many cities as they develop older districts into attractive creative hubs for businesses and residents. Developers from around the world are purchasing land, redeveloping historical buildings, and starting to build from the ground up in an unprecedented rush for property, which threatens to displace the artists and earlier adopters who gave the neighborhood its unique character. Some of the questions for the panelists will be: Why do developers follow artists? Why is the Arts District one of the “hottest” areas in the country? What is it about artists that make an area “cool” and create a fervor that more mainstream people then follow? Can the Arts District balance development and maintain its authentic core as a neighborhood rich with artists who might not be rich?

hinese contemporary art has developed over the past thirty years through trials and hardships. From absorbing the ideas and techniques in Western painting to developing a critical adaptation, Chinese contemporary artists have constantly endeavored to refresh and expand their understanding and interpretation of art. The themed exhibition of “ Inspirations-Highlights of 2015 Chinese Contemporary Art” to be presented during the 2015 LA ART SHOW will feature easel painting works by prominent Chinese contemporary artists, including Zhang Hong, Ding She, Xu Junhua, Chen Jian, Zhou Gang, Chen Jiushuang, and Su Xing. Abstract expression is deeply rooted in Chinese culture of a long history, reflected in symbols, design elements, art forms, decorations and people’s aesthetic response. At this exhibition, the artists will display their most dynamic and passionate original works to showcase their view of the swiftly changing world and their life experience as reflected through art, forming the soul image of their generation. There are no heroic epics or revolutionary storms, but the globally common issues. In different styles and patterns, the artworks displayed at this exhibition either focus on contemporary abstract images, or bright colors, or feature exquisite texture and lively charm, but they all tell the stories, metaphorically, of the development and essence of traditional Chinese art, as well as the imaginative symbols they have created.

Justin Y, b.1972 Awaken, 2014 Finger Painting with Acrylic on Canvas 200 X 120 cm

The artist Justin naturally gravitates to all that is beautiful, bright and cheery. He is attracted to bold colors, shimmering material and glittering metals. His humbleness beginning from a historical town in Malaysia sets the backdrop for his quest to see the world. He had set his sights on the world`s biggest and brightest cities because he believes that is where all exciting things happen. He traveled around the world in search of all its glory. From ancient cities, palaces to deep sea nature reserves, deserts, snow top mountain and aboriginal settlements. What fascinates and influences his work is the struggles of these cultures to create and survive its surroundings–leaving behind a worthy heritage.

Zhu Dabai, b.1951 Flowing In Universe, 2014 Watercolor on Paper 56 x 76 cm x 2 Zhu Dabai uses some abstract modeling techniques to the specific image fuzzy object and mottled colors, the work looks like an abstract painting.

ART 1000 ZONE

Lacquer art in China has been used since the Shang dynasty for decorating and preserving wooden objects. It has evolved over time becoming more intricate and refined, serving more as collections of art than simply preservations. Su Xing, born in 1962, is a renowned modern Chinese Lacquer Artist. Su has dedicated his life to the art of lacquer painting, experimenting with different techniques and recreations in Lacquer Painting, adapting of art form, and integrating new ideas into his work. In 2005, Su successfully invented lacquer paints that come in tubes like oil colour, which greatly reduces the time needed to prepare l acquer paints and gives instant lacquer colours that are more vibrant. In Su’s words, it gives more expressive and imaginative results.The invention of tubed lacquer paint has been named a “revolutionary breakthrough in lacquer art history”.

“Chinese Dream” Accompanies with Art In recent years, art communication has Chinese culture is becoming much more influential in the world along with the development of Chinese society. It can be seen that more and more Chinese cultural element has become the inspiration for the whole world, such as fashion and movies, even in foreign people’s daily life. Therefore, the world needs Chinese culture, and Chinese culture go abroad is an irresistable trend. During the recent 5 years, we could find that Chinese art has played an important role and achieved good result as well. This year, the exhibition brought by China Cultural Media Group, a large state-owned enterprise under the Ministry of Culture of the People’s Republic of China, will show different kinds of Chinese art works to the world: we will present “Light of Ink- Chinese Contemporary Art’s Restart” painting exhibition, Traditional Thangka Art Exhibition and Chinese Classical Furniture Exhibition. I believe that these great pieces of art will bring a brand new visual feast to the American audiences and also open a door for the foreign collectors and artists to comprehend Chinese culture. As a national team of cultural enterprises, we will select the most representative art works of China to go abroad, so that they could present the magnificence of Chinese art to the audience from all over the world.

Light of Ink- Chinese Contemporary Art’s Restart In recent years, “contemporary Chinese ink” has become a brand-new direction of Chinese contemporary art. Such phenomenon exists in the large amount of exhibitions held by Chinese art museums, galleries and art fairs, and also manifests in the high price of auctions. During the “Light of Ink- Chinese Contemporary Art’s Restart” of the National Exhibition of China, we would like to introduce a group of excellent contemporary Chinese ink artists to the audiences from all over the world. Among these artists, Li Gang combines the traditional Chinese ink’s concept with Western art’s abstraction to form his unique art style. Through his art works, Li Gang tries to research the changes of traditional Chinese ink within the contemporary cultural context. He underlines that the Chinese ink should say goodbye to ancient taste, and should be reconstructed under contemporary context. Furthermore, artist Zhuang Yujun has reconstructed the traditional Chinese figure painting into huge art works with Pop Art concept. He changes the individual scholar painting into public art. Through the “monument” of well-known celebrities, Zhuang Yujun tries to express the special value of traditional Chinese art concept in the contemporary society. And in other young artists’ paintings, the old Chinese ink has become rich and colorful. Among these works, there are private feelings about daily life, contemporary reconstruction of traditional Chinese ink skills, and mixture of Renaissance style and Chinese culture as well. Through these hundreds of paintings, we try to present the most typical and creative Chinese contemporary ink paintings.

There is a sense of “design” within his works – logical and rational, mathematical and metaphysical. The expression of light is somewhat classical. They are waiting for the holy light in a humble way, as a result, the artworks are filled with imagination and fantasy. However, in order to avoid the influence of collective worship, Li deliberately spreads various lines around the whole screen, breaking the balance of the orderly harmony. This help to attach more vitality to his works, telling a vivid story of an individual on the topic of human and history, human and the society, human and reality and human and object.

However, he keeps going deep into the connection between calligraphy and painting instead of staying on the brushwork. ZhuangYujun tries to integrate the most complicated emotion into little brushwork and “writes”every brushwork. “I wish my painting’s succinctness is like the poems of the Tang Dynasty, and the lifelikeness is like the Beijing Opera.”

Los Angeles, a land of freeways, is filled with cars creating a hypnotic, stress producing, and potentially dangerous experience for drivers. What is the solution? Autonomous driving- driving without human error- is being developed by the automotive industry to provide a safer driving environment for people around the world. A number of car companies are developing autonomous technology for release in the near future. What differentiates Volvo Cars of North America, LLC. and positions them solidly on the cutting edge of their field, is their introduction of safety as a focus of paramount importance within cars (they invented the 3 point safety belt) and the debut of the re-created XC90 and its ground-breaking semi-autonomous luxury experience. The new XC90 moves people one step closer to the day when driving will be a calming experience. Driving in a safe, automated environment will provide a tranquil respite during which one can take back lost time to read, correspond, communicate with others, perform unfinished tasks or simply enjoy music.

At LAAS 2015, Volvo collaborated with Freewaves to highlight the work of Pascual Sisto, an artist living in Los Angeles and representing the digital edge of contemporary art. Freewaves has repeatedly shown his videos, including during How Can You Resist at the Hammer Museum and during Hollywould on the boulevard; as well as a permanent piece in the Bradley Terminal at LAX’s See Change in the International Arrivals area. Shown at the LA ART SHOW are his video installation Push/Pull (my luck is your misfortune) and latest video works on monitors from his Expanded Series. Sisto has created a site specific multimedia installation inside the booth to function as expanded environment in which to experience the connections between the two works.

PASCUAL SISTO Push/Pull (my luck is your misfortune) Two video projections face each other in a darkened room. A never-ending, tunnel-like flow of automobiles passes from one screen to the other, approaching in white and receding in red. These opposing, kaleidoscopic images create a suspended state for the viewer, neither coming nor going, in the space in between. These seductive automobiles that overwhelm L.A. are complemented with digitally enhanced plants, tranquil in the aftermath. The video animations, printed carpet and custom painted set walls match the color and patterns of the plants to allure viewers into an expanded synthetic environment. The photographic and the synthetic co-mingle, asking the viewer to sort the realities from the forgeries so easily combined. 194

Engaging the Art Community “Dark Progressivism: Metropolis Rising”

Ed Gutter, Rep LA

The artists included— many of whom are featured in the film, Dark Progressivism: On Rupture to Rebellion— present works in black, white, and shades of gray, drawing on their roots in gang graffiti, illicit murals, and tattooing. The palate also comments on the shadows out of which the artists, and Southern California as whole, have progressed over the past five decades. Additionally, the monochromatic theme in “Dark Progressivism: Metropolis Rising” connects to the Hollywood genre of film noir and its predecessor, German Expressionism.

Roberto Gutiérrez, Wild Ride on the 6th Street Bridge

Joe Prime Reza, One for All and All for One

the first international presentation of this Southern California nativist genre. The very public darkness of the last fifty years in L.A.—natural disasters, race riots, gang wars, serial killers, police brutality, drugs, crushing poverty contrasted by insane wealth—and our rich cultural mix are the roots of this style that is now being recognized in the art and academic worlds.

Some of the artists are internationally known, others are emerging, and one is a prisoner in Pelican Bay Prison’s Secure Housing Unit. Curated by Cartwheel Art editorial director Lisa Derrick and author/filmmaker Rodrigo Ribera d’Ebre, the exhibition features Abel M. Alejandre, Big Sleeps, Chaz Bojorquez, Cryptik, Daniel Gonzalez, Roberto Gutiérrez, Ed Gutter, Jesse Hazelip, Jason Hernandez, Juan Carlos Muñoz Hernandez, Alex Defer Kizu, Patrick Martinez, Jack Morris, Rafael Reyes, and Joe Prime Reza.

Please join us on Sunday 1pm for a book signing with Rodrigo Ribera d’Ebre, Big Sleeps and Rafael Reyes. Based in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District, Cartwheel Art publishes an online art magazine with engaging content and provides a full range of promotional and editorial media services in addition to producing and offering tours of Downtown Los Angeles Arts District.

THE FROSTIG COLLECTION Once again, we are beyond thrilled to be back at the LA ART SHOW! We know that the booth space for non-profits is very limited and we are honored to have been chosen to spread the word about THE FROSTIG COLLECTION and the important work that we do. THE FROSTIG COLLECTION is an on-going series of small sculptures and additional works of art that have been created by well-known artists to raise money for a social skills program for children with learning disabilities, Asperger’s and high-functioning autism at the renowned Frostig Center in Pasadena, CA. All artworks are sold in limited editions or as a series. The Frostig Collection Artists are: Lita Albuquerque, Charles Arnoldi, Gary Baseman, Larry Bell, Lynda Benglis, David Buckingham, Chris Burdon, Guy Dill, Frank Gehry, Robert Graham, Brad Howe, Eric Johnson, Matt Johnson, Michael Kalish, Michael C. McMillen, Ed Moses, Gwynn Murrill, Kenton Nelson, Sarah Perry, Chris Piazza, Ken Price, Nancy Rubins, Allison Saar, Mike Stilkey, David Trulli and Ray Turner. At this year’s LA Art Show we are featuring one of the Frostig Collection’s artists, RAY TURNER and his ever-growing POPULATION series, which has been traveling to museums across the country over the last several years. Population is a unique and expanding series of portraits, which are executed with oil paint on 12” x 12” glass squares, that celebrates a crosssection of people from across the country. As the exhibition evolves with the addition of new portraits from different communities, the body of work will increasingly reflect the nation’s cultural makeup as well as the complex and changing nature of “place”. Ray Turner was kind enough to paint 9 of the Frostig Collection’s artists as his contribution to our collection and program and those portraits are featured here at The La Art Show as well. To see all of the Frostig Collection artworks please visit: www.thefrostigcollection.org To see more of Ray Turners Population series please visit: http://rayturner.us/works/population With much gratitude, Kate Stern Curator, The Frostig Collection www.thefrostigcollection.org 206

Los Angeles Art Association is proud to present The Paradise Circus by J.T. Burke, a physical and conceptual mash-up of confession booth, cathedral steeple and big top tent. The exterior of the structure will be covered with circus posters announcing religious-themed acts, presenting canonical mythology as entertainment spectacle. It is a lighthearted lampoon of traditional orthodoxies and a comparison of doctrinal storytelling with carnival merriment. The interior of The Circus will be darker, featuring symbols, characters and runes of unknown origin in a foreboding environment. A large, imposing face greets you at the entrance (could that be St. Peter, Ridwan, Uriel or Charon?) and a traditional church kneeler invites you to make obeisance and push open the slider to reveal...a small glimpse of Paradise. It is said that the role of the artist is to reveal unseen truths. Burke is creating this work, and all the work in this ongoing series, because he oftens wonders about what lies beyond this mortal life. He questions the veracity of those who claim to know, and challenge the authority of monolithic institutions that spin stories and perpetuate myths for purposes of social control and political gain.

Inclusion and Engagement at the Museum of Latin

This year, the Museum expanded its definition of Latin American art to include Chicano and Latino art. Prior to this action, MOLAA focused on the work of artists who lived and worked in Latin America. With the opening of Mex/LA, MOLAA’s 2011 Pacific Standard Time exhibition, the Museum began to move in a new direction to embrace the breadth of Latin American art. Join Assistant Curator Edward Hayes, Jr. for a panel discussion on Sunday, January 18th inclusion from the perspective of museum education, curatorial programming, and collecting. 214

JIM McHUGH STUDIO

“SCRATCH” – 195” x 42” triptych – INNOVA archival fibre paper 16 1/2’ photo-collage of the Getty Research Institute and ESMoA’s - 2014 Graffiti Installation SCRATCH

Photographer Jim McHugh has chronicled the Los Angeles art world for over three decades, publishing several books including “California Painters: New Work” with Henry Hopkins and “The Art of Light and Space” for Abbeville Press. His artist portraits were included in the Getty Museum’s “Pacific Standard Time” in conjunction with Timothy Yarger Fine Art. This massive 16 foot panorama photo-collage is of the recent graffiti installation titled Scratch at the El Segundo Museum of Art, ESMoA. Considered one of the most forwardthinking small museums in America, “Scratch,” was curated by David Brafman, curator of rare books at the Getty Research Institute. The photographic mural includes many separate images of both artists and individual graffiti walls. The photograph includes such acknowledged artists as Phantom, Axis, Cre8, Defer, Eyeone, Fishe, Miner, Gajin Fujita, Big Sleeps, Prime, Heaven, Trigz, Patrick Martinez, ENKONE, and Dr. Eye. More importantly, many other dedicated artists freely contributed to this monumental graffiti installation, their extraordinary work is pictured here. About the Exhibit “Scratch” The Getty Research Institute owns a 16th Century manuscript called a liber amicorum (book of friends) illustrated by artists of the time. In 2013, The Getty invited LA’s leading graffiti artists to contribute to a single book, thus creating the Getty Graffiti Black Book. ESMoA and the Getty Research Institute subsequently invited Getty Black Book artists to turn ESMoA into an open black book. With the “Scratch” installation, graffiti and tattoo artists transformed the space into a cathedral of urban art for the first public presentation of the LA Liber Amicorum. http://www.jimmchughphotographs.com/#/esmoa-graffiti/_ESMoA_comp

Juan Carlos Mu単oz Hernandez

combines his signature graffiti style with the classical traditions of oil painting and sculpture. Born in Mexico, Mu単oz Hernandez was exposed to the Los Angeles graffiti arts scene and thus aerosol based mural painting when his family moved to Boyle Heights. He was quickly commissioned by Homeboy Industries to paint a public mural, which led to further commissions throughout L.A. County. In 1992, after a rigorous interview process, world-renowned sculptor Robert Graham selected Juan Carlos to join the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Torso Project. Since then he has worked on internationally acclaimed projects including the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial in Washington D.C., Duke Ellington in New York, Charlie Parker in Kansas City and Our Lady of Angels Cathedral doors in Los Angeles, California. Mu単oz Hernandez's work has been included in numerous museum and gallery shows over the past twenty years. He is currently represented by Timothy Yarger Fine Art, Beverly Hills.

Rolland Berry

is a contemporary artist and muralist whose art bridges the gap between pop art and graffiti. Berry has built himself a brilliant identity using reckless and powerful details such as bold collages, unique color concepts and hand silkscreen methods; all of which are guided by his own rules and sense of style. Drawing inspiration from history, spirituality, modern or street culture, Berry aims to create art that expresses his unique messages. Rolland Berry is represented by Lawrence J. Cantor & Company.

Art Going Public – Happily Ever After? An exhibition by The Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles (MCLA) curated by Isabel Rojas-Williams

Most people agree that quality public art is desirable. But after the unveiling and party, art in public space can take on a life of its own. Economics, appropriation, and changing neighborhoods are among the factors that push public art away from the intent of the artist. This exhibition will showcase the historical and cultural evolution of some of Los Angeles’ most notable pieces of art displayed in public. Embracing LA’s visual art culture, this exhibit will include, among others (in alphabetical order), Carlos Almaraz, Angelina Christina, David Botello, Pablo Cristi, El Mac, Wayne Healy, Victor Henderson, Judithe Hernández, Willie Herrón III, Alex “Defer” Kizu, Francisco Letelier, Los Four, Gilbert “Magú” Luján, Michael Massenburg, Noni Olabisi, Frank Romero, and Kent Twitchell. Live painting by Robert Vargas together with Graffiti installation by Petal and Blosm. In conjunction with the exhibition, MCLA will also present Public Art Land Grab: The Gold Rush Economy of LA’s Mural Renaissance (Saturday January 17th, 2015 at 4 pm) a panel discussion moderated by Isabel Rojas-Williams. We are one year into LA’s new mural ordinance, and the City’s public art community has experienced unprecedented creativity coupled with unexpected conflict. The line between sponsors and patrons is ever-blurred. In our temporary culture, is the difference even relevant? Where are the Medicis of today, or is it reasonable to expect such ideal patronage? The last year has seen public art developments that were not imaginable even 24 months ago. Some murals have been painted out as unpermitted, some have been given reprieve by City Hall, and some artists couldn’t care less if their murals are legal or not. Money is never far away, as walls have been appropriated, donated, rented, leased, bought and sold. What does history have to teach us about the economics of renaissance and culture? How can the City, artists, commercial enterprise and citizens co-exist in this landscape? Join the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles for a panel discussion, as we explore our contemporary public art scene standing at the crossroads of economics, culture, politics and history. MCLA’s panelists include David Brafman (Curator – Rare Books, The Getty Research Institute), Danielle Brazell (General Manager of the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs), Miles MacGregor (“El Mac,” artist), Cheech Marin (actor, director, art collector), Councilmember Mitchell O’Farrell (Chair of the Arts, Parks, Health, Aging and, Los Angeles River Committee), and Ed & Brandy Sweeney (donors of the Getty Black Book).

Tansaekhwa

(Korean Monochrome Painting) Exhibition I Tansaekhwa refers to a style of Korean monochrome painting and is one of the most famous and important artistic movements hailing from twentieth-century Asia. During the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s, Tansaekhwa artists manipulated materials, mainly using hues of white, black and brown to create primarily large abstract paintings. Extensive promotion during the 1970s and 1980s, garnered Tansaekhwa artists international recognition and acclaim. Consisting of sixteen paintings, the LA Art Show’s special exhibit, “Tansaekhwa I” will be the first overview of this important genre, focusing on six artists who practiced Tansaekhwa’s artistic manner during the 1970s and 1980s using their unique artistic method. In this exhibition, artists such as Sang-Hwa Chung, Hyong-Keun Yun, Seung Won Suh, Myoung Young Choi, Hwang Hur and KiLin Kim offer a magnificent interpretation of this movement’s visionary practice. Through abstraction, subdued palettes of various hues and texture, these artists reveal a delicacy and refined sense of freedom in their oeuvres. The 2016 LA Art Show will display “Tansaekhwa II” as a further investigation of the movement by introducing additional artists consisting of artworks from notable collections in Korea. LA Art Show would like to express our great appreciation to Galerie Bhak and The Columns Gallery for helping us curate “Tansaekhwa Exhibition I.” Hoojung Lee, Director of Korean Art Affairs

ZOOM

is an installation by the interdisciplinary collaborative NO RELATION, led by artist Mads Christensen and architect Steven Christensen. ZOOM originates from an interest in the ornamental excess one often observes in objects when viewed in microscopic detail and the perceptual qu exuberance when amplified. Although an object’s surface detail has a certain relationship to the form upon which it lies, it can also convey an additional layer of information about an object's properties, as in an unexcavated mineral whose striated surface may provide evidence of the geometric logic of its atomic structure. Mads Christensen is an artist residing in Los Angeles. He creates light sculptures using LEDs, microprocessors, and algorithms. His work has been featured at Santa Monica Glow, Create:Fixate, Frankfurt Luminale 2014, Burning Man and A+D Museum, Los Angeles. Christensen is represented by Timothy Yarger Fine Art, Beverly Hills. Steven Christensen is an architect residing in Los Angeles. He is a member of the faculty in the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning at UCLA where he teaches graduate and undergraduate design studios. He received his Master in Architecture from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University.
