Art Review: Vonder Gray at WAV

Art Review
Vonder Gray at WAV
 
Vonder Gray's exhibition of new work at the WAV is an important show for this artist, the WAV and the greater Ventura art community.  Continuing her recent forays into improvisational abstraction, featuring large, sometimes unstretched, paintings on canvas, the new work is more open, expansive, confident, and larger in conception.

Art Review: Chagall at LACMA

Chagall LACMA1
BEYOND THE 805
 
Art, Theatre, and Costume Design
Chagall at LACMA
 
The exhibition Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art [LACMA] on view until 7 January 2018 is a special kind of exhibition. It deals with Chagall’s involvement with specific dance performances during his mature years when he was at the height of his powers drawing from long-held connections to music, stage, and dance. Due to the difficulty of exhibiting this type of material, it is probably, unfortunately, a once-in-a-lifetime experience and may never be repeated.

Delightful Bob Privitt Show at the Ventura County Museum

Delightful Bob Privitt Show at the Ventura County Museum
Bob Privitt's solo show, Manipulations, brings another round of Privitt's well-known and delightful assemblages to the Ventura County Museum. Privitt has also had a solo show of his work at the Tool Room gallery at the Bell Arts Center when it was run by the museum. The current show presents a tighter, more closely related group of small sculpture/assemblages. Though color is not usually a key element in assemblage art, this show uses color very effectively to up the intensity of the visual impact to good effect.

Assembling Assemblage
Buenaventura Arts Association 3D Open Competition
The Buena Ventura Art Association [BAA] is exhibiting its annual 3D Open Competition show through 20 May 2017. This annual exhibition and competition, while it does not draw many of the top sculptors and 3Dartists living and working in the 805, it does draw enough talent to remain one of the more interesting, if not the best, 3D group show in the 805.

Jean Dubuffet Drawings at the Hammer

Art Review
BEYOND THE 805
Jean Dubuffet Drawings at the Hammer
The current exhibition of Jean Dubuffet’s drawings at UCLA’s Hammer Museum is the first exhibition of Dubuffet’s drawings of this depth and scope. Consisting of almost 100 works created between 1935 and 1962 it spans Dubuffet’s most creative years, curated by Isabelle Dervaux, Acquavella Curator of Modern and Contemporary Drawings at the Morgan Library and Museum. The Hammer presentation is curated by Connie Butler, chief curator, with Emily Gonzalez-Jarrett, curatorial assistant. Dubuffet is in some ways the most influential and perhaps best French artists since WW II , so this show represents an important addition to the understanding of his work and post-war art history scholarship.

Moholy-Nagy at LACMA

Art Review
BEYOND THE 805
Moholy-Nagy at LACMA
Every so often a person is able to see the consequences of their current time so clearly, to see the lines of development play out ahead of them, it is as if they can see the future. In such a case it doesn’t seem so much as if they influence those who come after, so much as that they seem to almost live and work in the future. Laszlo Moholy-Nagy was such an artist. Working well over a half-century ago, there are few areas of our visual culture today that have not been touched or anticipated in some way by Moholy-Nagy. God knows what might have happened had he lived long enough to use a computer.
