The Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles will open two new exhibitions on Sunday, Feb. 16.
“The Plant That Heals May Also Poison” is artist Ree Morton’s first major retrospective in the U.S. in 40 years. The exhibition features several rarely seen works, including a selection of sculptures, drawings, paintings and archival materials that span the decade of artistic production before Morton’s untimely death in 1977.
Her use of bold color, feminine imagery and embrace of the decorative infused her objects with sly humor and asserted sentiment. The exhibit includes works that highlight Morton’s time in Southern California as a visiting faculty at the University of California, San Diego, and as an artist-in-residence at the Women’s Building in Los Angeles’ Chinatown.
“Project Room” displays Ann Greene Kelly’s readymade, or common objects displayed as works of art. Kelly’s unique artwork combines everyday items such as mattresses and tires with plaster, stone and other sculptural materials.
Featuring new sculptures and drawings, the exhibition explores the relationship between domestic, interior space; the urban, industrial landscape; and personal experience. The presentation marks Kelly’s first solo museum exhibition.
The Institute of Contemporary Art is located at 1717 E. Seventh St. For information, call (213)928-0833, or visit theicala.org.
