On May 25 the Los Angeles gallery Kayne Griffin Corcoran is set to unveil a large new space in Wilshire. Renovated by Los Angeles-based architecture firm Standard, it features key elements designed by James Turrell such as the permanent Skyspace, the courtyard, and the lighting scheme throughout the space. The exhibition will also showcase works related to Turrell’s decades-long Roden Crater project sited in a 400,000-year-old extinct cinder cone volcano in the San Francisco Volcanic Field near the Grand Canyon. Yasmine Mohseni spoke with Maggie Kayne and Bill Griffin about their new space, their ongoing collaboration with Turrell, and creating a new kunsthalle in L.A.
On February 9, LACMA will unveil its fifth collaboration with Charles White Elementary School with the exhibition “Shinique Smith: Firsthand.” As part of the museum’s ongoing engagement with its surrounding community, the show combines Smith’s new work based on her experience within the school and community, art produced by Charles White Elementary School students, and objects the artist selected from LACMA’s Costume and Textile collection.
