Los Angeles: seven must-see shows on view now
By Jennifer Piejko
Los Angeles’s rich gallery network spreads across the city’s endless urban landscape. Particular highlights this month include six shows by women artists and a group exhibition of work by Native American artists, all of which present work from multiple generations and historical perspectives. The exhibition spaces and formats are equally as varied, and include architectural white cubes, industrial complexes, historical buildings, and even a stately private home.
Rochelle Feinstein, ‘You Again’
Hannah Hoffman, in collaboration with Campoli Presti, Bridget Donahue, Nina Johnson, Candice Madey, and Galerie Francesca Pia
Through March 26, 2022
This collaborative exhibition, which has been unfolding across six venues in the U.S. and Europe, sets Rochelle Feinstein’s four-decade-long career in sharp focus as her styles and approaches to making – and displaying – paintings, photographs, drawings, sculptures, and videos only continue to broaden. Feinstein shows older work next to newer work that responds to it; at Hannah Hoffman, the exhibition’s final venue, her deeply personal material history commands the space. With Travel Abroad (1999), a canvas of rough, cheerfully bright squares hangs next to a small cardboard box that has been through a ringer of a postal system; next to them is another canvas, color-blocked to menacingly summon the German flag and repeating the question, ‘Feinstein, is that a German name or a Jewish name?’
