Throughout his career, American artist Glenn Ligon (b. 1960) has pursued an incisive exploration of American history, literature, and society across a body of work that builds critically on the legacies of modern painting and conceptual art. Curated by the artist, this exhibition will include a selection of works from the permanent collection.


A selection of over 40 works by 30 artists, the latest presentation of the Marciano Collection in the Ballroom Gallery showcases artists who live and work in California.


Shown here for the first time in Los Angeles, the oversized flower-potted tulips made from fiberglass- reinforced plastic are painted with the same red polka dots as the floor, ceiling, and walls, creating an immersive viewing experience while at the same time diminishing the appearance of depth.


Based in Los Angeles, photographer Catherine Opie (b. 1961) presents two different aspects of Southern California living in the bodies of work currently on view and curated by the artist: 700 Nimes Road (2010-11) and the Freeway series (1994-95).


In his work, Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone (b. 1964) addresses the human condition and the natural world. The selection of artworks curated by the artist include materially diverse sculptures, installations, and paintings.


Handsome sets of documents, photographs, and Masonic paraphernalia left at the Temple are presented in the renovated Masonic library.

OBSIDIAN LADDER, the first large-scale solo exhibition in the United States by Bolivian American artist Donna Huanca, opens at MAF on June 28. Huanca’s site-specific installation for MAF’s 13,000-square-foot Theater Gallery will reveal a new topography of triggered senses, combining sound, scent, and live performance. These elements will be experienced together against a constellation of carved steel sculptures and skin paintings.
