Just returned from a visit to Los Angeles. We were returning some work, picking up some new work, doing studio visits, and looking at a few spaces (thinking of doing a pop-up gallery in LA in the fall!). If you know of a good space shoot us an email!
The highlight of the trip was getting to attend Laddie John Dill’s opening at Nye + Brown. The show included several neon pieces from the 70s and a huge site-specific sand and light piece. It was compelling, seductive and even dreamlike. Since being included in David Zwirner’s 2010 “Primary Atmospheres: Works from California 1960-1970,” a major acquisition by MOMA and all the Pacific Standard Time shows, Laddie’s works from the 60s and 70s have been rediscovered and recognized as an important body of work. We look forward to Laddie’s upcoming show with Ochi in July…more information on that to come.
