L.A. Times Reviews Museum's "It Happened at Pomona"; Notes Pomona Could Do What the Whitney Could Not
The Pomona College Museum of Art show "It Happened at Pomona: Art at the Edge of Los Angeles, 1969-1973: Part 1: Hal Glicksman" is featured in both the print and internet editions of today's Los Angeles Times. The review notes that Michael Asher's "new Pomona piece expands a 2010 project for the Whitney Museum in which he proposed to have its signature biennial exhibition open all day, every day, for a week. The Whitney couldn't cope, though, instead agreeing to a three-day open house. A note on the museum's website explained that the shortened duration was 'due to budgetary and human resources limitations.'" The Pomona College show is open 24/7 through November 6. Reviewer Christopher Knight also calls Tom Eatherton's piece "marvelous," notes that Robert Irwin's clear-acrylic disk is "exquisitely mounted," and declares the Chris Burden painted cube "a perfect introduction to Pacific Standard Time."
