Fred Eversley: Black, White, Gray

For more than four decades, Fred Eversley has produced a singular body of work that considers materials, light, and the optical qualities of shapes and colors as part of a broad investigation of individual perceptual experience. This exhibition, which opened at Art + Practice in Los Angeles, examines a series of black, white, and gray sculptures that Eversley began in the early 1970s.

Tommy Hartung: King Solomon's Mines

Through an installation of new sculptures, video, and photographs, Tommy Hartung extends his investigation of mythmaking and storytelling tied to powers of surveillance, wealth, and politics. Transposing the legend of King Solomon to create a fable that rings true for a modern era, Hartung's King Solomon’s Mines represents his most comprehensive solo museum exhibition to date.

Sarah Sze: Blue Wall Moulting

Blue Wall Moulting traces the structural elements behind the wall of the Foster Stairwell. Created with a basic chalk snap-line technique, which mimics the process used in building construction, the drawing follows the hidden architecture of the space, drawing attention both to the surface and to what lies behind.

Collection at Work

Granting visitors behind-the-scenes access, Collection at Work transforms the Lois Foster Gallery into a work space for collection stewardship activities. While the staff perform these critical daily activities, visitors are invited into the space to witness them first-hand, see a changing selection of artworks, and to learn about the museum's many roles in the lives of objects in its care.
