‘MEMORIES OF UNDERDEVELOPMENT’ @ Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego

Posted on November 15th, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

(MEMORIES OF UNDERDEVELOPMENT: ART AND THE DECOLONIAL TURN IN LATIN AMERICA, 1960-1985 runs through February 4th)   The San Diego Contemporary Museum of Art currently has an exhibition which is an assembly of meditations on the emergence of Latin America from a third-world backwater of the globe, to something on par with a middle-class society. But […]

LA Artcore / Lamperouge Fine Art @ The Brewery

Posted on November 9th, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

There were two openings side by side at the Los Angeles Brewery artist colony last Sunday. I was invited by Carla Viparelli to the first one, where she was debuting new artwork which stressed an unlikely historical harmony. She did so by creating a representation of Western antiquity through the visualization of broken archaeological ceramic […]

Kim Dingle at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects Art Review

Posted on November 3rd, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

The artist Kim Dingle housed 4 exhibition series at Susan Vielmetter, with the best works radically experimenting with the audience’s foreground space and investigating the nature of aesthetic reproduction. When speaking of “reproduction”, it is meant that the nature of originality with art, or with anything for that manner, is examined. We take a picture, […]

The Good Luck Gallery | Tieken Gallery LA Review

Posted on October 25th, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

The Good Luck Gallery had an eerie exhibition from the artist Art Moura. The art tilted towards being slightly disheartening but still welcoming to interrogation with the eyes. The Good Luck Gallery normally does an exquisite job with its space, taking advantage of its high ceilings to cover every possible scope of eyesight with an […]

Latin American Masters | Square Rhino Projects (2/2)

Posted on October 19th, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

(Part 2/2) The Latin American Masters Art Gallery, also found at the Bergamot Station, opened the world wondrously to the late Peruvian Fernando de Szyszlo, whom the gallery labeled the “last Modernist”. And it is easy to understand why. Mr. Szyszlo exhibited interest in working with abstraction, but not to a pedantic degree. These are […]

‘Beyond the Lines’ | ‘BG Gallery’ Art Review (1/2)

Posted on October 18th, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

Last Saturday held a slew of art openings on the Westside. The Bergamot Station, as usual, had a prominent exhibition of a multitude of artists in a trio of their galleries. The first on the itinerary was the several artists exhibiting at Beyond the Lines.   The first which caught my eye intently was the […]

Culver City ArtWalk 2017

Posted on October 11th, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

It was a beautiful Saturday on Washington Blvd in Culver City, which opened the world to the terrific galleries tucked away on this sleepy street flanked by some of the busiest byways in the city. The art was overwhelmingly positive, and I was fortunate to stumble upon museum-worthy art pieces from Monique Van Genderen at […]

Brayden Bugazzi Review @ The Mid City Arts Center

Posted on October 3rd, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mr. Bugazzi displayed a collection of a dozen or so artworks which were by no means gentle and demur. Each possessed a dynamic force which mostly could not be contained within the composition. They commonly reached and projected outwards, provocatively imposing upon the viewers. While there was a sample of Hollywood kitsch dressed up in […]

‘A Stranger In Your Home’ | ‘A Cut Above’ @ Shulamit Nazarian | The Loft at Liz’s

Posted on September 27th, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

There were multiple openings on La Brea Ave Saturday night, and the two I attended provided meaningful works displayed to the audience. The first show, a solo exhibition titles A Stranger in Your Home by the artist Amir. H. Fallah at Shulamit Nazarian, was a peaceful, placating, collection whose sole subject was the Arab refugee crisis. […]

Moiré Fringe @ Santa Monica Arts Studios/Arena 1 Gallery

Posted on September 20th, 2017 by Joseph A. Hazani

  What was most attractive with the Moiré Fringe opening, and of the Santa Monica Art Studios in general, was the intrepidness in exhibiting sculptural artworks. Contemporary sculptural art is in indeterminate ground, an unfortunate victim of the transience of post-modernism’s general blemish upon High Art and the objective of discerning a fundamentally aesthetic piece; […]
