East Coast museums will open three retrospectives of L.A. artists in the coming weeks, each of them taking over nearly the entire institution.
“Jason Rhoades, Four Roads” will run Sept. 18-Dec. 29 at Philadelphia’s Institute of Contemporary Art. “Chris Burden: Extreme Measures” is to occupy all five floors of New York’s New Museum, Oct. 2-Jan. 12, 2014. The Ann Goldstein-organized “Mike Kelley” will take up two floors of P.S.1, Oct. 13-Feb. 2, 2014.
Meanwhile, James Turrell’s rotunda-filling Guggenheim show runs through Sept. 25, and the LACMA-organized “Ken Price Sculpture” is at the Metropolitan through Sept. 22. I’m not aware of a similar confluence of L.A. artist shows in the East, ever.
The Kelley exhibition is coming to MOCA (Mar. 23 to July 28, 2014), and “Jason Rhoades, Four Roads” will travel to the Orange County Museum of Art, Apr. 13 to July 20, 2014.
