“As might be expected of an exhibition seeking to highlight “typical” art of the region, this presentation of nearly 60 works, selected by Foundation Director Billie Milam Weisman, displays the earmarks of the twinned Los Angeles Finish/Fetish and Light & Space movements as well as that of their successor tendency, Material Abstraction, and the recondite, conceptual form of Pop art peculiar to L.A. – Peter Frank
