Regent’s Park, London
Booth D12

Kohn Gallery is honored to present a thoughtful selection of work by historical California artists at Frieze Masters London. Wallace Berman and Bruce Conner (whose estates are represented by the Kohn Gallery) catapulted as well as captured the emerging California cultural and artistic revolution of the twentieth century with photographs, film, collages, assemblages and other mixed media. Meanwhile, John McLaughlin’s pioneering hard-edge minimalist paintings set the stage for innovators in visual perception alongside Southern California artists Joe Goode and Larry Bell. Also in the booth will be work by Frederick Hammersley, John McCracken and Andy Warhol.

Also showcased in the booth will be Bruce Conner’s powerful film Crossroads. “Conner found a cataclysmic beauty in National Archives footage of the first underwater atomic bomb test, conducted on Bikini Atoll on July 25, 1946. He combined 23 shots of the same explosion—at differing speeds and distances, from air, sea, and land—with a complex, mesmerizing dual score by Patrick Gleeson and Terry Riley to make of the destruction a kind of Cubist cosmic sublime.” 
–Josh Siegel, Associate Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art
