Brief survey of the new exhibitions on la Cienega,
Starting from Venice Boulevard – Left side:
at ANAT EGBI: “BYE JAY STUCKAY, BY JAY STUCKAY’
March 11 – April 15, 2017
Funny walls with hilarious diary-like canvases on which all sorts of thoughts are thrown in drawing or words.
at Cherry and Martin: Holly Coulis with “Days and Nights, Lemons’
March 11 – April 22, 2017
Fifth solo show at the gallery for painter from Georgia, Holly Coulis. This time she has extracted the portraits from her subjects. All the signs of a human presence are there but no face. This absence/presence brings even more timelessness and mystery.
at Edward Cella: “Kendell Carter, Marvel”
March 11 – May 6th, 2017
an exhibition of cast paintings, sculpture, installation, and guided meditation by Kendell Carter. Carter’s sustained commitment to observing and exploring race, gender, history, and consumer culture manifests in a studio practice that pushes beyond that of a black artist making art about politics, and towards one that acknowledges the rapidly integrating nature of today’s visual culture.
RIGHT SIDE OF LA CIENEGA
at Blum & Poe: Kishio Suga
February 25 — April 22, 2017
a wonderful lesson of minimalism for the small pieces and plus large scale installations that show the idea of continuity
at Luis de Jesus Los Angeles: Masood Kamandy with ‘The Effect of Lightning on a Rainbow’
Feb 18 – Mar 25, 2017
The common denominator of the two artists, although very different, is undoubtedly the mastery of a technique they manipulate, triturate to create new effects, different from the usual effects with their medium.
at Paul Loya gallery: “Under AK” with the artists of the gallery
a benefit exhibition supporting the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) with the artists of the gallery. The artworks are on display on the floor on moving blankets and they are all under $1000
at Samuel Freeman: York Chang & Justin Cole I Constituent Parts
March 11 – April 29, 2017
Constituent Parts is a collaborative exhibition between York Chang and Justin Cole. Over the course of seven weeks the exhibition will shift and change, with the removal and addition of works, collaborations with invited artists, staged performances, and live broadcasts. With Constituent Parts, Chang and Cole propose a new citizenship wherein dialogue and camaraderie are the building blocks in the struggle for a new democratic reality.
