LOST (in LA) is a collaboration between French and LA artists curated by Marc-Olivier Wahler, the former director of Palais de Tokyo. It connects a narrative between the popular television series LOST and the geographic sprawl of Los Angeles.
The exhibition consists of 60 works from artists including Stephan Balkenhol, Michel Blazy, André Breton, Valentin Carron, Guy de Cointet, Philippe Decrauzat, Bertrand Dezoteux, Daniel Dewar & Gregory Gicquel, Vincent Ganivet, Camille Henrot, Thomas Hirschhorn, Fabrice Hyber, Nathan Hylden, Mike Kelley, Robert Kinmont, Vincent Lamouroux, Laurent Le Deunff, René Magritte, Man Ray, Tony Matelli, Philippe Mayaux, Mathieu Mercier, Laurent Montaron, Robert Overby, Julien Prévieux, Jim Shaw, Alexandre Singh, Tatiana Trouvé, Oscar Tuazon, Jean-Luc Verna, Robert Watts, and Marnie Weber.
From a room filled with Jim Shaw’s personal collection of Jesus ephemera to a gallery of contemporary French drawings intermixed with older work such as a photograph of Dorothea Tanning by Man Ray, each section builds upon the next, creating a very edgy, impressive dialogue with varying degrees of being “lost.”
The collaboration also marks the premiere of many Franco-Angeleno exhibitions presented by FLAX (France Los Angeles Exchange) in partnership with the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, and the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA).
LOST (in LA) is located at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG) at Barnsdall Art Park, a 36-acre hilltop former private estate and artists’ colony, through January 27, 2013.
