    Jo Ann Callis' photographs consistently compel at Rose Gallery

    Rich array of 'Beautiful Ugly Things' at Garboushian Gallery
    A small, misshapen relic of a human, "Pompeii Baby" squeezes the elemental affinity between human and earthly clay for all that it's worth. The sculpture, by Mitsuko Ikeno, reads as a concise tragedy. The truncated form is armless, its legs mere stumps....

    Marina Abramovic Institute responds to critics of unpaid positions

    Stepping delicately through a cryptic union at Samuel Freeman

    Getting physical with clay and fiber at Marc Selwyn

    Datebook: Punk design, Tokyo photos, paintings by Marsden Hartley
    The European years of a key American artist at LACMA, Japanese photography at the Getty, and an assortment of summer group shows that touch on everything from light to L.A. to rock 'n' roll. It’s happening all over our sun-baked metropolis:...
  • REDCAT New Original Works Festival

    There is only one thing I can tell you for sure about this week’s program, the second of three, for the New Original Works Festival at REDCAT. It won’t be like last week’s.  Or next week’s.  The festival is of emerging works by...

    Norton Simon Museum awaits Manet's 'The Railway,' part of loan exchange
    A special guest is pulling into the Norton Simon Museum just in time for Christmas. Edouard Manet's 1873 painting "The Railway" will take up temporary residence in the museum's Impressionist Art Wing on Dec. 5. The painting, which depicts a young...
  • How a SCI-Arc design spoof predicted New York's 'poor doors'

    My mom likes to say that she left South America for the Land of Opportunity, only to have South America follow her here. It's our bit of gallows humor for talking about rising economic inequity here in the United States — an inequity that appears to...
