Julian Hoeber Artwork Unveiled as Part of Beverly Center Renovations

The Beverly Center in Los Angeles, currently undergoing an extensive $500 million renovation, is now covered in several large-scale artworks from well-known local artists including Catherine Opie and Geoff McFetridge. The installations are part of an art program that launched in July, organized by curator Jenelle Porter in association with the Hammer Museum.

Julian Hoeber’s Artists and Models will be unveiled in September 2016. The work is a kind of seating pavilion composed of a curved billboard with an image of a woman’s face pressed against the glass. The facade wall is interrupted by a doorway that allows visitors to metaphorically enter the face, behind which is a sculptural bench and intricate floor that forms a relaxation space.

Judy Chicago’s “Birth Project: Born Again” at Museum of Fine Arts, Florida State University

Judy Chicago’s Birth Project: Born Again
Museum of Fine Arts, Florida State University
September 23 – November 13, 2016
Reception: October 14, 2016, 6-8pm

Judy Chicago’s Birth Project was completed between 1980 and 1985 and this current exhibition gathers a number of exceptional Birth Project works.

The Birth Project was stitched by 150 women needleworkers who joined artist Judy Chicago over the five year period of its production to complete approximately 85 textiles for a series of “exhibition units.” Chicago worked with needleworkers, providing underpaintings, cartoons, drawings, mock-ups, color specifications, and written directions for the transformation of her images and every needleworker received public credit for her work. Dr. Thompson Wylder summarizes Chicago’s Birth Project, now “born again” in this exhibition, as “a continuing force for cultural change and aesthetic transformation.”
