Entries in LACMA (5)
Showing at LACMA from January 22 through April 22, Ellsworth Kelly: Prints and Paintings is the first retrospective examination of Kelly’s exceedingly prolific print practice since 1988. The exhibition includes over 100 prints, the majority from the collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, and five paintings. The exhibition is organized thematically to explore Kelly’s mastery of key formal motifs: grids, contrast and curves.
The new Matthew Marks Gallery in West Hollywood also recently opened Ellsworth Kelly: Los Angeles, which includes six new two-panel paintings, all of which are being exhibited for the first time. Also on view are a group of 1952-54 collages, including Study for Black and White Panels, and the 1966 painting Black Over White. The facade of the newly constructed building also features an installation of a large Kelly sculpture, creating a striking example of minimalism in a city known more for colored glass. The new Matthew Marks Gallery was designed by Culver City-based architecture firm ZELLNERPLUS.
FORM attended the annual AIA|LA Design Awards and Party last night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The Design Awards party offered time for sharing architectural musings, as well as time to view the new Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion. Honoring excellence in work by Los Angeles Architects, this years award recipients were not revealed until the ceremony, which allowed for candid reactions from award winners.
In the NEXT LA category, which featured yet unbuilt designs, 20 jury awards were given in three classifications: Citation, Merit, and Honor. The Honor Awards were given to Michael W Folonis Architects for their UCLA 16th Street Outpatient Surgery and Oncology Center, as well as Your Building Here, for their Embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington DC. The same design from Your Building Here also received the Best in Show for the NEXT LA category.
