This Week's Must See Art Events in LA

March 10 - March 13

Giorgio Andreotta Caló 5122.65 MILES at Depart Foundation Calò’s first exhibition in the US links Venice, Italy to Venice, California. The show will feature photographs, sculptures, and film drawn from the artist's ephemeral and performative practice including images of LA that Calò has captured with an improvised pinhole camera created in the trunk of a car. 
(West Hollywood, Thursday 6-10pm)
Don’t Look Back: The 1990s at MOCA  The exhibition includes works by Catherine Opie, Cady Noland, Sarah Sze, and Paul McCarthy, among others, and explores the complexities of the 1990s by dividing the presentation into six thematically grouped sections, titled: Installation; The Outmoded; Noir America; Place and Identity; Touch, Intimacy, and Queerness; and Space, Place, and Scale.
(Downtown, Saturday 11am-6pm)
Henry Taylor Camarillo State Hospital
From 1984–1994, Los Angeles-based painter Henry Taylor worked as a psychiatric technician at Camarillo State Mental Hospital.
 Never before exhibited, the works in this show are a record of Taylor’s early career and of the haunted hospital, which closed in 1997. 
(Downtown,  Saturday 4-7pm, Sunday 12-8pm)
Rita Ackermann Jezebels at FARAGO An exhibition of three new works by Rita Ackermann which involves the manipulation of photography on multiple levels.  Ackermann's use of overprinting extends the ritualistic function of the hijab as a means of occlusion by obstructing one's formal line of sight. Here, the hijab at once sexualizes and desexualizes the subjects.
(Downtown Saturday 4pm-7pm)
Zoë Buckman Every Curve at Papillion
Zoë Buckman's exhibition – three years in the making – explores the contradictory and complimentary influences of feminism and hip-hop in her upbringing. Buckman incorporates sculpture, photography, embroidery and installation in her work and she often examines themes of feminism, mortality and equality.

(Leimert Park, Saturday 12-3pm)
Eric Yahnker Noah's Yacht at Zevitas Marcus  Deftly mixing pop culture and political satire, Yahnker serves as a virtual seismometer of the current cultural zeitgeist. A deep knowledge of art history and semiotics underpins the coarse, acerbic content of his drawings and sculpture. His work functions as both social critique and a rorschach test for the viewer.  
(Culver City, Saturday 5-8pm)
Alice Könitz at Commonwealth and Council
Könitz takes the gallery's namesake as a title for a group of sculptures that are loosely organized around the idea of public organization or state. Her ongoing experiment with social architecture playfully imagines a rudimentary society that includes basic elements: a directorial office in the form of an information kiosk, a food dispensary, a lounge, and an outlook post.

(Koreatown, Saturday 7-10pm)
West Hollywood at AA|LA The artists presented in West Hollywood reconsider the relationship between perceived fantasy and personal experience. Candid images of the city’s landscape are paired with objects of intimate encounters. The works challenge the understanding of the city as a producer of spectacles, subverting the dominant legacy of its urban mythology.
 (West Hollywood, Saturday 6-9pm)
Revolution in The Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women, 1947 - 2016 at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel This massive group show traces ways in which women have changed the course of art by deftly transforming the language of sculpture since the postwar period. Works on view reveal their makers inventing radically new forms and processes that privilege solo studio practice, tactility, and the idiosyncrasies of the artist’s own hand.  (Downtown, Sunday 2-6pm)
WOAH Last-Look:
Break Bread at Think Tank Gallery
Over the past 30-days a bouquet of ticketed special events, from immersive theater, to supper clubs and comedy shows, have activated the 7,500 sq ft installation Cake Bread.
