Currently on view at the LACMA is Joseph Beuys: The Multiples, the first west coast presentation of The Broad Art Foundation’s nearly 600 Beuys works produced between 1968 and 1986. The works are displayed on the third floor of the BCAM part of the ongoing loan program the foundation established with LACMA in 2008.
Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) is one of the most influential postwar European artists. He used a European form of multiples in which two and three dimensional objects were issued in editions. He intended them to be widely circulated and to have relatively cheap prices. The multiples ranged from small-editioned objects to mass-produced political flyers and postcards.
