James Turrell, Breathing Light Ongoing Exhibit in 2015

Feb 28, 2015 - Dec 31, 2015 Los Angeles County Museum Of Art, Los Angeles

James Turrell, considered one of the most important artists of the Southern California Light and Space movement, was born in Los Angeles in 1943 and attended Pomona College, where he studied art, art history, mathematics, perceptual psychology and astronomy. He took graduate courses at the University of California, Irvine, and received a master's degree in fine art from Claremont Graduate School. Breathing Light is one of the artist's Ganzfeld pieces: an installation designed to entirely eliminate the viewer's depth perception. James Turrell’s art is a nexus for the worlds of art, science, architecture, astronomy,
mathematics, archaeology, and spirituality.

Metropolis II

Feb 28, 2015 - Dec 31, 2015 Los Angeles County Museum Of Art, Los Angeles

Chris Burden's Metropolis II is an intense kinetic sculpture, modeled after a fast paced, frenetic modern city. Steel beams form an eclectic grid interwoven with an elaborate system of 18 roadways, including one six lane freeway, and HO scale train tracks. Miniature cars speed through the city at 240 scale miles per hour; every hour, the equivalent of approximately 100,000 cars circulate through the dense network of buildings. According to Burden, «The noise, the continuous flow of the trains, and the speeding toy cars produce in the viewer the stress of living in a dynamic, active and bustling 21st century city.

Landscapes of Devotion: Visualizing Sacred Sites in India

Oct 25, 2014 - Dec 31, 2015 Los Angeles County Museum Of Art, Los Angeles

Long before the boundaries of India were delineated on a map, they were understood to encompass a vast sacred geography. The features of this landscape marked the abodes and activities of gods, the paths of spiritual teachers, and places associated with epic and religious texts. Over the course of several millennia, circuits of pilgrimage linked these various sites, reinforcing for India’s inhabitants the concept of a unified land. Landscapes of Devotion: Visualizing Sacred Sites in India explores the various ways in which this sacred geography was imagined and documented in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The exhibition consists of Indian courtly and temple paintings and colonial-era photographs drawn from LACMA’s collection.
