The arrival of fall means welcoming a new season of cultural activities to Southern California! We definitely recommend planning a fabulous artsy night out, as there are plenty of art exhibitions to choose from here in Los Angeles. Art has always had the power to send strong messages and take our breath away with its beauty and innovation. Admire new creations of local artists or revisit the classics – either way, here are some of L.A.’s greatest art exhibitions to visit this fall:
‘MARTÍN RAMÍREZ: HIS LIFE IN PICTURES, ANOTHER INTERPRETATION’
Hosted by The Institute of Contemporary Art — formerly the Santa Monica Museum of Art — this exhibition brings you the extraordinary drawings of self-taught artist Martín Ramírez, a Mexican immigrant diagnosed with schizophrenia at DeWitt State Hospital in Northern California. Ramirez’s powerful linear drawings will leave you breathless!
‘GIOVANNI BELLINI: LANDSCAPES OF FAITH IN RENAISSANCE VENICE’
Brought to you by the Getty Center, a small but rare exhibition of 13 paintings and one drawing by Giovanni Bellini is consiedered to be one of the best this season. The Bellini family — father Jacopo, brother Gentile, brother-in-law Andrea Mantegna — was the base of the Venetian Renaissance. This art exhibition is intriguing – something you don’t want to miss!
‘ALBERT FREY AND LINA BO BARDI: A SEARCH FOR LIVING ARCHITECTURE’
This Palm Springs Art Museum exhibition brings you two Modernists: Albert Frey – well known for his desert architecture – and Lina Bo Bardi, an Italian-born architect creating buildings that connect people to their surrounding natural world. This exhibition is presented as part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: L.A./L.A. at the Palm Springs Art Museum’s Architecture and Design Center. PST: LA/LA presents exhibitions that explore the intersection between Los Angeles and Latin American and Latino art all over the 70 SoCal’s cultural institutions.
