Must See Los Angeles

Wednesday, May 27

  • Ends May 30th 2015

  • “From My Bumbling Attempt to Write a Disastrous Musical, These Illustrations Muyst Suffice,” brings together a provocative, sprawling suite of new drawings and collages by Raymond Pettibon. Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan, the Beatles, Jesus Christ, Michael Jackson and Bubbles, Herbert Hoover, and John Dillinger make appearances, accompanied by text both convincing and utterly ridiculous. This is a exhibition that relishes in ambivalence and makes it extraordinary.

  • Deploying his signature process, Mark Grotjahn has used a palette knife to scrape over and dig acrylic into canvas, creating densely woven layers of paint—each grounded by a central white axis—that evoke Picasso-like eyes, flared nostrils, and Cheshire Cat grins. Grotjahn refers to the works in this series, developed over the past two years, as “Indians” and “Non-Indians,” noting that it extends the motifs developed in his earliest series, “Face paintings.”

  • In 2008, William Pope.L conceived of a fifty-four-by-sixteen-foot American flag that would be blasted by four industrial-grade special-effects fans. Over time, the relentless whipping would beat the flag to a fray. This work, Trinket, is currently on view alongside an exhibition of new and recent work by the Chicago-based artist, who said: “The project is a chance for people to feel the flag, to feel democracy. The American flag is not a toy. It’s not tame. It’s bright, loud, bristling, and alive.”

  • On view in this exquisite exhibition are three sculptures and two paintings finished in a palette of careful white and delicate black, dating from 1962 and 1963—the latter being the year Anne Truitt opened her first solo exhibition in New York. The works anticipate the profound change of form, color, and scale of the ensuing decade, demonstrating the vision and influence of this exceptional artist.
