Los Angeles in Paris
Yesterday (Sunday) the Los Angeles Times had quite a spread about the “Los Angeles” exhibition opening on March 8th at the Centre Pompidou, Paris. The show will include works from 1955 to 1985, by about 85 artists. According to the curator, Catherine Grenier, the show is designed to provide the backstory for the current wave of European interest in Los Angeles artists. She says that for young artists in Europe, “Los Angeles looks more important than New York.” The coverage is well worth reading, including the article on Lyn Kienholz's influence.
