Join us for a walkthrough of ‘Jason Rhoades. Installations, 1994 – 2006’ led by curator Ralph Rugoff. Conceived to share and celebrate Rhoades’ unwavering vision of the world as an infinite, corpulent, and lustful universe of expressive opportunity, this exhibition is the first major survey devoted to the artist’s immersive installations in Los Angeles.
No reservation required, however space is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Check-in begins at 6.30 pm at the Information Desk in the Courtyard.
