PST:LA/LA AT PALM SPRINGS ART MUSEUM

 
Part of PST: LA/LA, this exhibition is the first in-depth examination of the pioneering role played by South American artists in the international Kinetic Art movement of the 1950s and 1960s. The works of internationally well-known figures, such as Carlos Cruz-Diez, Gyula Kosice, and Julio Le Parc, along with Martha Boto, Horacio García-Rossi, Alejandro Otero, Abraham Palatnik, and Gregorio Vardánega, will be a discovery for most viewers in the United States.

Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, is a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles.  Supported by grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA takes place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California, from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, and from San Diego to Santa Barbara.  Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty.

EXHIBITIONS ON VIEW

Making it Modern
Palm Springs Art Museum, Clayes Wing
Enjoy a reinstallation of the museum’s foundational collection of works by international modern artists in Europe and the Americas. The exhibition is organized around six key principles that demonstrate how modernists pioneered a new aesthetic language that defined shifting perspectives in the twentieth century. By reconfiguring concepts such as line, energy, aggregates, biomorphism, spirituality, and presence, artists imbued their work with ideas that propelled modernism forward.

Artist as Muse
Palm Springs Art Museum, Chase Wing
Through September 3, 2017
Taking their creative counterparts as inspiration, the featured photographers turn artists into subjects. Portraits by Richard Avedon (John Ford), Eve Arnold (Orson Wells), Yousuf Karsh (Jean Sibelius), and Lewis Morley (Sarah Lucas) encapsulate both the photographer’s signature style and the subject’s public persona and underscore the interwoven relationship between muse and maker. Other images include those by Rena Small (Julius Shulman and Alexis Smith), Reed Massengill (David Zurek), Kurt Fishback (Mary Ellen Mark), Ira Nowinski (Man Ray), Lynn Hershman (Roberta), and Dora Maar (Jacqueline Lamba).

 
John McLaughlin: The Tamarind Prints 
Palm Springs Art Museum, The Jorgensen
Through September 25, 2017
John McLaughlin (1898-1976) is acknowledged as one of the most important artists of the post-war period. Working in Southern California, by 1948 he had pioneered a distinctive style of “Western geometric abstraction.”
Inspired by his lifelong study of Asian art, he instilled in his art a sense of stillness and the Japanese notion of the void. Between 1962 and 1963, McLaughlin made prints at Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles, on view now are the entire group of seventeen prints that he produced at Tamarind.
