Could Los Angeles art be ready for its Cinderella moment? After spending decades as a poor relation, is L.A. art finally being invited to the big art-world party in New York and Europe? It certainly seems so. In Paris last year, L.A. art triumphed in "Los Angeles: 1955-1985, Naissance d’une Capitale Artistique" at the Centre Pompidou, featuring works by 60 artists ranging from John Baldessari and Billy Al Bengston to Alexis Smith and Christopher Williams. Angelinos had always known that their art was extraordinary and highly experimental, and now Europeans could see the evidence as well.
