DAVID HAMMONS IS ON OUR MIND—the WattisInstitute catalogue that includes a 1994 artist’s talk as well as texts by Tongo Eisen-Martin and Fred Moten—is out of print, but Artbook at Hauser & Wirth has a few copies left.
Oscar Tuazon‘s sculptural works made in collaboration with artists and writers Ariana Reines, Matias Faldbakken, Elias Hansen, and Vito Acconci are now on view at the Bellevue ArtsMuseum—Tuazon’s first solo museum show in his native Washington State.
The exhibition—COLLABORATOR—also includes work in honor of Leonard Peltier, and “new sculptures and site-responsive interventions that respond, in part, to the porous, light-filled nature of architect Steven Holl‘s design” for the museum’s third floor galleries.*
The Dumas and Flaubert-derived title of the Air de Paris exhibition HOUSE OF GAGA—20 YEARS LATER (A SENTIMENTAL EDUCATION) refers to the year in the late 1990s when Fernando Mesta joined Air de Paris to do an internship.
Ten years later, Mesta and José Rojas founded House of Gaga in Mexico City. This Air deParis show celebrates the gallery and two decades of art by Julien Ceccaldi, Nicolas Ceccaldi, Trisha Donnelly, Bruno Pelassy, Vivian Suter, and Danny McDonald (Mended Veil).
The magnificent Charles White retrospective is up for one more month at LACMA, the last stop of its national tour.
In addition to the beautifully designed exhibition in the museum’s Resnick Pavilion, this weekend LACMA is presenting a pristine 35mm screening of ANNA LUCASTA—the 1958 film starring Eartha Kitt and Sammy DavisJr., featuring paintings by White.
And in June there will be a final Artist Walkthrough, with muralist and Charles White student Kent Twitchell.
