A Roundtable Discussion of Postwar Art in Los Angeles (2011)

“To better survey the manifold sites of postwar art in Los Angeles, Artforum invited art historians Thomas Crow and Andrew Purchuck, curators Maurice Tuchman and Ali Subotnick, and gallerist Helene Winer to join in conversation with artists John Baldessari, Harry Gamboa Jr., and Liz Larner—a group whose experiences span five decades and some of the most vibrant, vital scenes in the city. Critic and scholar Richard Meyer and Artforum editor Michelle Kuo moderate.”

From John Baldessari, Thomas Crow, Harry Gamboa Jr., Liz Larner, Andrew Perchuk, Ali Subotnick, Maurice Tuchman, and Helene Winer; moderated by Richard Meyer and Michelle Kuo, “L.A. Stories: A Round Table,” Artforum (October, 2011).
