Morandi + Ryman - Los Angeles Times

Inspired curatorial efforts are rare these days, so even the idea of pairing still lifes by Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964) with nearly monochrome abstractions by Robert Ryman (b. 1930) excites the imagination.

Los Angeles’ Kohn Gallery has picked up Israeli-born, London-based artist Ori Gersht.

Mr. Gersht has become well-known over the past decade for his historically influenced photography and video works that reference the style of Old Master paintings while exploring contemporary issues of violence and trauma. Often his works reflect world events such as World War II or the conflicts in the Middle East.
