Luchita Hurtado (b. 1920 Caracas, Venezuela) lives and works in Santa Monica, California. In 1928 Hurtado immigrated to New York City, where she began her career in the early 1940s as a fashion illustrator for Condé Nast and a muralist for Lord & Taylor. In the mid-1940s Hurtado frequently travelled between New York and Mexico City, where she worked within a scene of international artists and writers who comprised a North American WWII diaspora. Then, in the late 40s Hurtado relocated to Mill Valley, California, where she associated with the Dynaton Group. In 1951 Hurtado moved to Los Angeles, where she has resided ever since. Hurtado has shown internationally for seven decades and will be featured in this summer’s Made in L.A. 2018 at the Hammer Museum.

Gary Simmons: Fade to Black

Much of Simmons’s work in this exhibit centers on his signature erasure techniques. Early in his career, he drew in white chalk on readymade chalkboards or directly onto slate-painted walls, then smudged the images with his hands. In recent years, he has adapted the process to canvas and large-scale wall works, such as “Blue Field Explosions” (2009), a monumental drawing in the stadium that is home to the Dallas Cowboys. Tuesdays – Saturdays 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Sundays 11:00…

Adler Guerrier: Conditions and Forms for blck Longevity

Adler Guerrier (b. 1975, Port-au- Prince) is best known for his work in photography and printmaking that explores the poetics and politics of place. He examines the public space of the street as a site for civil discourse and disobedience and the more private realm of the home and yard as places for meditative observation and reverie—addressing both as political spheres. Guerrier’s new project for CAAM continues his investigation of history’s relationship to landscape, picturing what the artist has described…

Meleko Mokgosi: Bread, Butter, and Power

Meleko Mokgosi’s large-scale episodic painting cycle Bread, Butter, and Power forms the newest chapter in his ongoing series Democratic Intuition, which seeks to explore ideas about the many ways that democratic concepts influence our lives, loves, and relationships on macro- and micro-levels. This twenty-panel installation interrogates the theme of feminism in the context of southern Africa, and considers the consequences of dividing labor practices by gender. Sponsored by Fowler Museum
