Pulse of LA is an intriguing exhibition that presents LA as a rapidly changing, interconnected arena will open March 22, 2015 at LA Artcore in Little Tokyo. Organized by the Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art. Curator Leslie Cozzi of the Hammer Museum said of her selection process for the 29 works in the show:
“I chose the pieces that most piqued my curiosity. The resulting selections are riotous, challenging, and in a few instances, gleefully perverse. The works range from the representational to the abstract and everything in between. They encompass a variety of media including assemblage, and even iPhone photography. Some explicitly raise questions about identity, celebrity, and community; others embed their political concerns within their embrace of kitsch. Many of the works directly recall past feminist art practices, and in doing so yield new insights about the role of decoration, adornment, and self-display within the arts and society at large. When taken as a group, the diversity of these works may be a more compelling to the question originally posed than any single artwork could ever suggest.”
