The Los Angeles Museum of Art will be traveling for the next six months. While the LAMOA collection and a curated exhibition are on view at the UCLA Hammer Museum as part of the "Made in LA" show, the original LAMOA building will be on display at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena as a part of "The Fifth Wall".

Get BackMusical performance by Kelly Coats and Kathleen Kim of SheKhan

Saturday, July 12, 2014 7:30 pm
Get Back is a 30-minute experiment in the oscillation of structure and improvisation, harmony and dissonance. Electronic bass lines and beats, interlocked with tactile loops of violin riffs and vocal noise, set the stage for improvisation. Language, introduced as a recognizable form, later dissolves into an eerie cacophony, and ultimately serves as the glue that holds everything together. Get Back is about shifting from center, getting disoriented, and creating a new path.

Violet Hopkins - Pattern Compulsion / Esther de Graaf - Antenna


"Groupings curated from the postcard archive of Violet Hopkins"



With the aid of iron wire, plastic foil and aluminum foil I build structures where everything is visible yet simultaneously strives to be translucent. My recent sculptures are constructed from cardboard, tape, aluminum

foil and iron wire. They often take on a monumental sculptural form. For the exhibition at LAMOA I will use the project space to show two small sculptures, which are based on organic and architectural structures, and I will exhibit one outdoor sculpture.

For this exhibition I'm working directly with the architecture of the Los Angeles Museum of Art. I modify the space by furnishing one side of the facade with breakaway glass. Breakaway glass is a highly produced material which is used to simulate glass in movies. The filmic context of this material turns both the architecture and the museum itself into a prop.  Because of its brittle condition the glass is not an appropriate material to compose the facade of a building for a longer period. Eventually it will break without anyone knowing when this might happen. In this sense the glass becomes part of the narrative of the exhibition, and represents an action that will follow in time.
Inside the museum I placed an object that is both table and display vitrine at once. Reminiscent of an oversized four-part Josef Albers side table, this object contains collages that are made in close collaboration with Alice Könitz. The collages are a collection of dialogues between objects from diverse cultural areas spanning a total of 2400 years.

An artist book featuring a conversation between both artists will function as an integral part of the exhibition. It will be published after the show.
