10.8.11 @ Armory Center for the Arts -Speaking in Tongues: The Art of Wallace Berman and Robert Heinecken.
Speaking in Tongues advances our understanding of two seminal Los Angeles artists by bringing them into close conversation for the first time, examining how they both bridged modernist and emerging post-modernist trends by ushering in the use of photography as a key element of contemporary art. Placing Berman and Heinecken in the cultural context of 1960s and 1970s Southern California, which fueled and amplified their creative approaches, the exhibition and its accompanying catalogue trace the evolution of a new visual language, which placed photography and its representational contingencies at the heart of contemporary art.
