February 5 – April 10, 2011
Sirje and Michael Gold have been collecting contemporary art for more than thirty years. UAM Director Christopher Scoates is curating an exciting new exhibition focused around these two prominent and innovative Los Angeles collectors. Unlike many other LA collections, the Golds' collection is a remarkable cross section of established, emerging, mid-career and undiscovered artists who have been working in the region. Their thoughtful selection of paintings, works on paper, photographs and sculpture represent an unprecedented look at the diversity of aesthetic threads and array of issues that characterize work being made in and around Los Angeles today.
The exhibition will showcase over 80 works from their collection including those by artists Amy Adler, Kevin Appel, John Baldessari, Tanya Batura, Kim Dingle, Jim Drain, Sean Duffy, Brad Eberhard, Bart Exposito, Iva Gueorguieva, Salomon Huerta, Kurt Kauper, Martin Kersels, Charles Long, Anna Mendieta, Joel Morrison, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, Bruce Nauman, Monique Prieto, Tony de los Reyes, Ross Rudel, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Linda Stark, Don Suggs, and others.
