FEATURED ARTIST

PLATO IN LA

Plato in LA

Plato is one of the founding figures of Western civilization. His legacy encompasses ethics, politics, theology, and poetics. In this exhibition at the Getty Villa, a museum exploring classical art and culture, some of today’s most celebrated artists consider Plato’s impact on the contemporary world. In the form of sculptures, paintings, drawings, and large-scale installations, they respond to his contribution to philosophy — from defining the ideal to understanding the human condition — while fostering the ultimate Platonic experience: contemplation. Plato in L.A.: Contemporary Artists’ Visions is an exhibition at the Getty Villa from April 18-September 3, 2018.
