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.
