The Annenberg Foundation is sponsoring a three-month-long exhibit of photography whose inauguration will bring together renowned artists from the Los Angeles area.
The Annenberg Space for Photography''s premiere show called L8S ANG3LES will feature the work of Los Angeles-based photographers, including John Baldessari, Catherine Opie, Julius Shulman, and Lauren Greenfield. The photographs will represent the genre of fine art, architecture, documentary, fashion, photojournalism and celebrity portraits.
The exhibit will also include work from Los Angeles Times staff photographers capturing city life in all its bustling variety.
"The vision of these photographers reflects the vast talent and energy that have made Los Angeles into a world class city in less than a century," says Anne Wilkes Tucker, a curator of photography from the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston who served as special advisor for the opening installation.
The exhibition space will feature a traditional print gallery and a state-of-the-art digital presentation system capable of sharing a large number of photographs with the public in large and high-resolution format.
The Photography Space will also offer public programs which will include lectures and workshops related to L8S ANG3LES. The exhibit will open on March 27 and close on June 20, 2009.
