LEGACY OF ABSTRACT ART IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

SUNDAY, JUNE 10, 2018 (2:30 PM - 4:00 PM)

Join us in a special salon and Q&A with foremost art critic and curator, Peter Frank, who will share insights into the history of the abstract movement in Southern California, particularly how it developed from the roots of abstract expressionism and geometric art, and its metamorphosis in the last 50 years. He will discuss the methods in which abstract art has been explored by Los Angeles area artists such as DeLap and McLaughlin, as well as other painters, sculptors and photographers, and offer predictions of where the movement is headed in the next 5 to 10 years. Peter Frank is a Los Angeles-based Associate Editor for Fabrik magazine. He is former critic for LA Weekly and Angeleno magazine, served as Editor for THE magazine and Visions Art Quarterly, and contributes to publications worldwide. Previously, he was an art critic in New York for The Village Voice and SoHo Weekly News. He served as Senior Curator at the Riverside Art Museum and has organized numerous theme and survey shows for the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Venice Biennale, and other venues. He holds a B.A. and M.A. in art history from Columbia University.
