This is the first solo museum exhibition of artist Timothy Washington, a notable contemporary of Los Angeles’ canon of African-American artists from the 1960s and 1970s, including David Hammons, Betye Saar, and John Outterbridge. A Chouinard Art School graduate, Washington’s body of work includes a powerful series of mixed media drypoints, monumental sculptures, and folk art assemblages. With a firm foundation in figurative art, Washington’s work covers a trajectory of calculated realism to assembled abstraction, which parallels the social history of L.A. from Washington’s own perspective.
See press release. Exhibit runs through 4/27/14.
