Currently at The Huntington in Los Angeles, a selection of works from Alex Israel has been inserted throughout the the historic institution’s European art collection. The intriguing mix of new and old brings to mind exhibitions in the past like KAWS at the PAFA or like the turns Koons, Murakami, and Kapoor took at Versailles. For the exhibition, the locally-based artist has carefully and seamlessly placed 16 paintings and sculptures as well as two site-specific murals throughout the gallery’s two stories, contrasting his references to the cult of celebrity and pop culture with selections from a different time period. Check it out yourself (through July 11th) but look carefully as many of the pieces are almost hidden in plain sight and head over here to learn more about the exhibition.
