Welcome to the Art Muse LA Journal! Each month we’ll feature a new perspective on art found in “The Greater Museum of Los Angeles.” In late summer, we have two upcoming posts that reflect the diversity of the art we look at, get excited about, and want to share with our readers. This month art critic Jennifer Li contemplates contemporary art on view at LACMA in "The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China." In September, artist Alejandro Figueredo Diaz Perera takes on conceptual art found in MOCA's "The Foundation of the Museum: MOCA's Collection."
As a community of art historians, artists, and art educators we explore the visual arts in greater Los Angeles and through this journal we’ll document some of what we’re looking at and what we think about it. In the spirit of camaraderie we honor the different points of view and enjoy sharing them among ourselves and with our followers.
