LA Artland is a survey of one of the most vibrant and influential art scenes of recent decades. Having produced world renowned artists such as Mike Kelly, Paul McCarthy, Cathy Opie, Chris Burden, Jim Shaw and Charles Ray, Los Angeles since the 90s has rivalled New York as the US contemporary art capital. With the continuing success of programs at Art Center, Cal Arts and UCLA, as well as a growing gallery scene stretching from blue-chip to artist-run spaces, Los Angeles as an art centre continues to thrive, producing increasingly successful generations of artists. This lavishly illustrated anthology contains over 200 images by 100 artists based in the LA area, working in various media from traditional painting and photography to cutting-edge multi-media installation, video and performance. Essays by Chris Kraus, Jan Tumlir and Jane McFadden explore the LA art scene in depth.
