Barbara Kruger    May 14 - Jul 9, 2011


Opening Reception: Saturday, May 14, 2011 6-8 pm L&M Arts, Los Angeles is honored to present recent work by Barbara Kruger. This is the artist’s first exhibition in her hometown since her solo presentation at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 1999.

The East Gallery will feature the multi-channel video installation The Globe Shrinks, 2010. This work continues Kruger’s engagement with the kindness and brutality of the everyday, the collision of declaration and doubt, the duet of pictures and words, the resonance of direct address, and the unspoken in every conversation.

In the West Gallery, the artist will create a room “wrap” that visualizes and spacializes her ideas around money, power and desire.

On the exterior of the gallery, Kruger will also create a projection using two recent works, You Want it and In Violence, combining images and text that address wanting and needing, winning and losing.

Barbara Kruger lives and works in Los Angeles and New York, and teaches at the University of California, Los Angeles. Solo shows include the Institute of Contemporary Art, London, Kunsthalle Basel, Musee d’art contemporain de Montreal, the Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, the Serpentine Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt. She was awarded The Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005.

GALLERY INFORMATION: L&M Arts, Los Angeles, 660 Venice Boulevard, Venice, CA, 90291.
