Mariana Yampolsky: Photographs from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art

Mexican photographer Mariana Yampolsky (1925–2002) captured the beauty and desolation of Mexico and its history. American born, she moved to Mexico at the age of 19 and built an artistic practice honoring the cultural, natural, and architectural elements that fed her spiritually and inspired her to become a Mexican citizen. Combining a straightforward photo-documentary style with a poetic approach, Yampolsky has described her gaze as matching her imagery—precise and delicate, never overtly strident and always respectful. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and…

Here

This is a group exhibition that examines shifting physical/geographical and conceptual/imagined boundaries (and boundlessness) in-and-around the metropolis of Los Angeles. In addition to the natural and traditional human geography (such as neighborhoods), the artists assembled in Here investigate Los Angeles’ internal physical and conceptual boundaries, the bridges in-between, and permeability of these boundaries. Here explores these localized frictions, the hybridity, and fluidity of Los Angeles, to uncover these bounded and unbounded landscapes within Los Angeles.   Opening reception: October 21,…

Boundaries both foster and inhibit…
