CB1 Gallery's exhibition "The art that dares not speak its name" is a response to New York Times art critic Roberta Smith's Feb 10 piece about the death of painting: “What’s missing is art that seems made by one person out of intense personal necessity, often by hand. A lot but not all of this kind of work is painting, which seems to be becoming the art medium that dare not speak its name..."
The four-person show includes work by Alex Kroll and Edith Beaucage, recent graduates of the MFA program. In her review of the exhibition, L.A. Times writer Sharon MIzota describes Beaucage's "confidently spontaneous figures (that) are breezy, casual and exuberantly expressive."
Through August 1 at CB1 Gallery, 207 W 5th St, L.A. 90013, (213) 806-7889, Wed-Sun noon-6
