Flor Garduño

FLOR GARDUñO

Flor Garduño was born in Mexico and studied visual arts at the Academy of San Carlos (UNAM), where she focused on the search for the structural aspects of form and space. She gave up her studies to work as a darkroom assistant for Manuel Álvarez Bravo, one of Mexico's most prestigious photographers, with whom she strengthened her photographic skills. Since then, Garduño has received numerable prizes, and her work has been exposed and published around the world. Garduño's photos depict the landscapes of Central and South America -- and the people whose ancestors were indigenous to the region. Her photos depict subjects that could have existed in a time long before the present moment, and through photographing them, brings the Indian land of America to the present moment. Though many themes traverse Garduño's body of work, all ultimately reach the point of incense where, uncertainly, nature, and art blend so that mankind may have a margin of whimsy, freedom, or significance on the face of the gods.

Outliers and American Vanguard Art

OUTLIERS AND AMERICAN VANGUARD ART

Outliers and American Vanguard Art is curated by Lynne Cooke and organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC. The West Coast presentation at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is coordinated by Rita Gonzalez, curator and acting department head of Contemporary Art. It is the first major exhibition to explore key moments in American art history when avant-garde artists and outliers intersected, and how their exchanges ushered in new paradigms based on inclusion, integration, and assimilation. Featuring over 250 works in a range of media, the show will present works by more than 80 self-taught and trained artists such as Henry Darger, Sam Doyle, William Edmondson, Lonnie Holley, Greer Lankton, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Matt Mullican, Horace Pippin, Martín Ramírez, Betye Saar, Judith Scott, Charles Sheeler, Cindy Sherman, Bill Traylor, and Kara Walker.

The Notion of Family

THE NOTION OF FAMILY

In The Notion of Family, artworks from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries chart a trajectory of African American family and togetherness over generations. Throughout the exhibition the notion of family is expressed in numerous mediums, including photographs by James Van Der Zee, Carrie Mae Weems, and Lyle Ashton Harris; paintings by William E. Pajaud and others; and prints by Romare Bearden and John Biggers. As a whole, these empowering images illustrate that the African American family is a model for thriving, even amid hardship. They suggest a sense of levity while also reflecting agency, love, strength, diversity, and unity from an African American perspective. The Notion of Family will be on view until March 3, 2019 at the California African American Museum.

FEATURED ARTIST

Zoe Leonard

ZOE LEONARD

Zoe Leonard: Survey is the first large-scale overview of the artist’s work in an American museum. The exhibition, now at the The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, looks across Leonard’s career to highlight her engagement with a range of themes, including gender and sexuality, loss and mourning, migration, displacement, and the urban landscape. More than it focuses on any particular subject, however, Leonard’s work slowly and reflectively calibrates vision and form. Using repetition, subtle changes of perspective, and shifts of scale, Leonard draws viewers into an awareness of the meanings behind otherwise familiar images or objects. A counter-example to the speed and disposability of image culture today, Leonard’s photographs, sculptures, and installations ask the viewer to reengage with how we see. Zoe Leonard: Survey will be on view at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA until March 25, 2019.
