Noah Purifoy: From Watts with 66 Signs of Neon to the Gallows

Sunday, June 7, 2015 @ 1 pm

 LACMA joins the Watts Towers Art Center to commemorate the Watts rebellion through presentations of artist’s reactions. In 1965, alongside eight artists, including Judson Powell, Noah Purifoy gathered three tons of debris from the rubble and began his largest body of work—what was once a collection of 66 pieces that embodied the artist’s spirit of collaboration—66 Signs of Neon. Gallows (2003) is considered Purifoy’s last work. Anchored by these signposts on opposite ends of a long career, the panel discusses these works and more. Panelists include Powell; Sue Welsh, longtime friend and collaborator of Noah Purifoy; Studio Museum curator Naima Keith; artist and curator Michael Massenburg; and artist and teacher Sam Durant.

The panel is moderated by exhibition curators Franklin Sirmans, Terri and Michael Smooke Curator at LACMA, and Yael Lipschutz, independent curator and archivist of the Noah Purifoy Foundation.

THE 45 SHOW

What: The 45 Show – Opening Reception
When: Saturday, April 9, 2011
Time: 5 PM – 11 PM
Where: Twenty Miles East Art Gallery
558-A West Second Street, Pomona CA 91767 

Painted, melted sculpted and photographed. Just some of the adjectives used by curator/artist Michael Massenburg to describe the many ways a collective of Southern California artists will use 45’s (vinyl records) as a medium in an upcoming art exhibition. Art meets vinyl in this showcase of 45 of some of Southern California’s finest artists, creating one-of-a-kind designs using the 45 as a starting point. “My instructions to the artists were simple,” Massenburg said. “Use the 45 as a starting point. Other than that there were no limits.” The opening reception on April 9 at Twenty Miles East Gallery (20 miles east of LA) coincides with the 2nd Saturday Pomona Art Walk.
