New issue of Art Los Angeles Reader

January 20, 2016

Contributions from Sasha Archibald, Math Bass and Lauren Davis Fisher, Smart Objects, Karon Davis and Helen Molesworth

We are pleased to announce the release of the second issue of the Art Los Angeles Reader. The free newspaper, published on the occasion of Art Los Angeles Contemporary, critically engages with art on-site and beyond, placing rigor and criticism alongside humor and celebration.

Published in January 2016, the second issue is themed around the architectures of Los Angeles. Within its pages are contributions from the city’s leading artists, thinkers, and writers, such as: a new work designed for newsprint by Math Bass and Lauren Davis Fisher; reflections on the late Noah Davis’s Imitation of Wealth by Karon Davis, co-founder of The Underground Museum, and Helen Molesworth, chief curator at MOCA; and Christie’s Captures, an augmented reality project presented by Los Angeles gallery Smart Objects.

Additionally, Kate Wolf (Los Angeles Review of Books) examines the L.A. River, a site revitalized by performance art; Sasha Archibald (Cabinet) discusses the hidden history of oil in Los Angeles; and Catherine Wagley (L.A. Weekly) writes about a new mural by Katherine Bernhardt. Evan Moffitt (Frieze) interviews artist Amy Yao; Jonathan Griffin (Frieze) contributes a history of spray painting; Travis Diehl (Prism of Reality) writes on Jaya Howey and Rebecca Morris; and Forrest Nash of Contemporary Art Daily presents the archives of artist Gaylen Gerber.

Art Los Angeles Reader is edited by Tracy Jeanne Rosenthal. The newspaper is published by Fair Grounds Associates and is available on site at Art Los Angeles Contemporary and at leading bookstores, galleries, and museums.
