"Surface Tension," Skirball Cultural Center, and Getty PST: LA/LA, 2017

LA Times Datebook: Capturing art on L.A. streets..


Carolina A. Miranda


A record of Los Angeles murals. An ode to a Mexican revolutionary. And a pioneering Chicano painter gets his due. Los Angeles is still brimming with all things art and all things Pacific Standard Time. Here are more than a dozen exhibitions and events to check out in the coming week:

Ken Gonzales-Day, “Surface Tension: Murals, Signs, and Mark-Making in L.A.,” at the Skirball Cultural Center. This is a new series from the artist known for conceptual photo projects that have chronicled old hanging trees and reimagined scenes of protest. For this PST: LA/LA exhibition he turns his attention to murals and the ways in which they inhabit L.A.’s urban landscape. Opens Friday and runs through Feb. 25. 2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd., Brentwood, skirball.org.
