Barbara Kruger | L&M ARTS
May 14 – July 9, 2011
“L&M Arts, Los Angeles is honored to present recent work by Barbara Kruger. This is the artist’s first exhibition in her hometown since her solo presentation at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 1999.

The East Gallery will feature the multi-channel video installation The Globe Shrinks, 2010. This work continues Kruger’s engagement with the kindness and brutality of the everyday, the collision of declaration and doubt, the duet of pictures and words, the resonance of direct address, and the unspoken in every conversation.

In the West Gallery, the artist will create a room “wrap” that visualizes and spacializes her ideas around money, power and desire. 

On the exterior of the gallery, Kruger will also create a projection using two recent works, You Want it and In Violence, combining images and text that address wanting and needing, winning and losing.”
