Ken Price Sculpture: A Retrospective at the Los
Angeles County Museum of Art, Resnick Pavilion
2012 - January 6, 2013
preparing to open a retrospective this fall on Ken Price (1935-2012), one of
the most important sculptors to have emerged in Los Angeles in the last 50
years. Over his long career, Price became known for his meticulous and
innovative works that helped redefine what it means to be a ceramic artist. The
exhibition is designed by Frank Gehry, a friend of Price, and will “chart the
lyrical progression of the artist’s work and illuminate the work of other
artists who have been influenced by his ground-breaking and influential
oeuvre.” A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition, and
includes essays by Stephanie Barron, Phyllis Tuchman and Dave Hickey, as well
as an interview with the artist by MaLin Wilson Powell.
