It’s sixty-seven degrees and not quite yet winter in Los Angeles. Across the Pacific, MAKI Gallery presents “L.A. : Views,” curated by Chelsea Petronko Rana, which highlights the work of sixteen emerging and mid-career Los Angeles-based artists. On view from December 4 through January 16, “L.A. : Views” features progressive, vibrant work across painting and sculpture./// Los Angeles is a city of multitudes – a thriving art scene at odds and in concert with the entertainment industries; indigenous land and frontier histories colliding with cutting-edge technology and architecture; a web of freeways connecting distinct beach, wetland, and mountain terrains. The artists included in the exhibition reflect this vigor, with works that express manifold interpretations of the region today. Contrary to the metropolitan melting pot, Los Angeles is a meeting point, an intersection of different attitudes, generations and cultural legacies, driven by desire and innovation as much as contrast and change. Making a left turn in this town is difficult, but as these visionaries can attest, if you want to get anywhere, just keep going forward, forward, forward. *The gallery will be closed for the winter holidays from Dec. 27 (Sun.), 2020 to Jan. 5 (Tue.), 2021.
