LA Times: 11 Los Angeles Artists

November 10 through December 1, 1991

The exhibition combines a survey of the art made by a group of emerging artists together with the artists' stories about living and working in Los Angeles. All of the artists, whether formally or informally, received their art education in L.A. The exhibition tries to investigate the relationship between the art of a generation of artists living in Los Angeles and the urban landscape of power, cultural diversity, and technological phenomenon. As diverse as L.A.'s sources of energy and power are the artists whose work has been selected for this exhibition. The art can perhaps tell us something about the fear and joy of living in one of the largest cities in the world, but more importantly they ultimately ask question of universal significance about a world where cultures and technology collide with continuous and amazing force. Their work is not limited or restricted by a city's boundaries.
