Barbara Kasten: Experimental Photography from the 1970s at Gallery Luissoti

November 19, 2011 – January 7, 2012

Gallery Luisotti is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, Barbara Kasten: Experimental Photography from the 1970s, opening November 19th. Kasten’s early concern with the interplay between sculpture, light, and installation in her art mirrored the greater interest of the then burgeoning California light and space movement arising in the 1960s. Formally trained as a painter, and rooted in the visual dialogue of Constructivist art, Kasten’s work has been a continual practice of mediating and reconciling opposing ideas, from sculpture to photography, light and shadow, and objects to immateriality. The exhibition marks Gallery Luisotti’s contribution to Pacific Standard Time: Art In L.A. 1945-1980.

Pacific Standard Time is an unprecedented collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California, coming together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene. Initiated through grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time will take place for six months beginning October 2011. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.

Please join us for the artist’s reception on Saturday, November 19th from 6:00 to 8:00pm. For further information please visit Gallery Luisotti’s website or call the gallery at (310)453-0043.
