LACMA will be hosting a press viewing for its presentation of “Ed Moses: Drawings from the 1960s and 70s” on Wednesday, May 13 at 6 p.m.
“Ed Moses: Drawings from the 1960s and 70s” will be the first museum presentation of the artist’s drawings in nearly 40 years. Moses’s use of unconventional materials and techniques led him to a unique mode of expression grounded in graphic experimentation, which included large floral graphite drawings from the 1960s to his signature diagonal grids of the 1970s.
“Ed Moses has been central to the history of art made in Los Angeles for more than half a century,” said LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director Michael Govan. “To fully appreciate his large and diverse body of work, one must look at the pivotal period of the 1960s and 1970s, when Moses was intensely focused on drawing.”
Moses comprises nearly 90 works, more than 40 of which have been promised as gifts to LACMA by the artist.
Moses was born in Long Beach in 1926. He enlisted in the Navy at 17 and served as a surgical technician during World War II. After the war, Moses studied at Long Beach City College before transferring to the University of California, Los Angeles to train under the expressionist painter Rico Lebrun. The exhibition will be running though August 2 at LACMA, located at 5905 Wilshire Blvd.
