Celebrity gawkers have got their knickers in a supreme twist over the arrival of Posh
, who touched down at LAX earlier this month just ahead of David Beckham’s first day of practice for the L.A. Galaxy soccer team. Maybe it’s a coincidence, or perhaps a reaction to the recent spate of feminist shows, but of late I have seen no shortage of art that emphasizes sport, soccer and boy’s gone scouting. Add to that the runaway bestseller success of The Dangerous Book for Boys
, and I feel like I am ready to climb a tree. To that end, a show titled "Milieu" at Lizabeth Oliveria Gallery
, June 30-Aug. 11, 2007, includes some nifty sculptures by Los Angeles-based artist Chris Beas
that pay homage to the sport we Europeans like to call football.
