There is a rich contemporary art scene in and around Los Angeles, due in part to the plethora of universities and museums in the area with strong photomedia programs and collections.

This exhibition presents 13 photographs from the Gallery’s collection by artists based in Southern California, whose work deals with relations between landscape and architecture, high and low culture, representations of the body, politics and irony, word and image. Often confrontational, the photographs reveal enlightening perspectives about American culture today and the world at large. In their attempts to make sense of reality, history, place and identity, these Southern California-based photographers reflect interests and approaches that are truly international in scope.

The artists include Allan Sekula, Uta Barth, Miles Coolidge, Shannon Ebner, Christina Fernandez, Ken Gonzales-Day, Anthony Hernandez, Sharon Lockhart, Catherine Opie and Mark Wyse.
