LOST (in LA)

Organized by FLAX (France Los Angeles Exchange) in partnership with the Palais de Tokyo, Paris; the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles; LOST (in LA) is the most significant exhibition of works by contemporary and modern artists from France and Los Angeles yet to be presented in the United States.

LOST (in LA) is an exhibition and an innovative dialogue between LA artists and French artists. It reproduces the quintessential Los Angeles experience of being lost in the heart of this metropolis. Layers of time and space appear to be interlaced together atop a hill hidden in the middle of the city.

LOST – one of the influential TV series of this decade – is considered by many artists as a source of inspiration as well as disappointment, as it struggles to deliver a true formal link that would connect the different layers of time and space. The exhibition comes from the desire expressed by artists to create this formal link.

LOST (in LA) brings together approximately 60 exceptional works by established and emerging artists from France and Los Angeles in a groundbreaking new exhibition project curated by Marc-Olivier Wahler. The project will be presented free to the public from December 1, 2012 through January 27, 2013, at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park.
