Openings: Laurie Lipton – “L.A. Sous-Real” @ ACE Gallery

Last weekend, the Ace Gallery in Los Angeles played host to L.A. Sous-Real, the latest solo showing from artist Laurie Lipton (interviewed).

She states:  “I am in the peculiar position of being a foreigner in my own country. I just moved back to the USA after living in Europe for over 36 years (more than half my life). This show is […]
