Television and Disaster: Vija Celmins

Recently, artist Vija Celmins visited LACMA. She was here for the installation of Vija Celmins: Television and Disaster 1964-1966. Celmins made all of the paintings in the show during a period when she was living in Los Angeles–more specifically, in a beloved studio in Venice. She talked about that time in her life, what propelled her work then, and how she looks at it now:

Vija Celmins: Television and Disaster 1964-1966 is on view in the Ahmanson building, plaza level, through June 5th. (After you see the paintings, don’t miss Celmins’ markedly different Untitled (Comb) just down the hall in a nearby gallery.)
