Virginia Katz hosts Howard Fox, Curator

I am pleased to announce the next Art Discussion Wednesday, February 21 at 7:00 pm with guest and curator HOWARD FOX, on "The Complex Relationship between Practicing Artists and Museums." He will reflect on this relationship within the vast scope of contemporary art on the local and international level.

Howard states: "It is a relationship destined to embody brilliant achievement among individual artists and museums who exhibit them and yet bedevil artists and curators alike who must acknowledge the institutional limitations that they operate in."

Howard Fox is a curator who held the title Curator of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art from 1985 through 2008 where he organized numerous major exhibitions and authored their catalogues, including "Avant-Garde in the Eighties" (1987), "A Primal Spirit: Ten Contemporary Japanese Sculptors" (1990), "Lari Pittman" (1996) and" Eleanor Antin" (1999). Often focusing on issues of content and meaning in contemporary art, Fox has published widely and authored a principal essay for the catalogue accompanying the 2006 exhibition "Los Angeles 1955-1985: Birth of an Art Capital," organized by the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. From 2000 to 2004 Fox was on the faculty of Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) where he taught courses in modern and contemporary art history. He recently returned to LACMA to serve as guest curator for the critically and popularly acclaimed survey exhibition "Playing with Fire: Paintings by Carlos Almaraz." His upcoming project is a 10-year "core sample" of paintings by LA-based Merion Estes for the Craft and Folk Art Museum set for September.

Please join me for this wonderful evening with Howard. The format for the program is a unique one. The guest is invited to initate a topic of discussion briefly then the floor opens to the audience for discussion. Seating is limited so please bring a chair in case you're left standing. See you there!
