Many of the most influential post-war American art movements are closely tied to the West Coast, despite being written out of the art historical record until very recently. Pop, Light and Space, action painting, assemblage, Minimalism, Conceptualism, and Hard Edge, to name a few, all had roots in California.
The various practices of Californian artists made their mark in art history and influenced many young artists of today. That is why Kohn gallery in Los Angeles has organized group exhibition of works by some of the best California born or based artist. The West Coast Avant-Garde: 1950 – Present will display works by 12 artists that were carefully selected by Kohn gallery representatives.
