CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

Making Time

Making Time celebrates a selection of L.A.-based artists who have shared their artwork in solo exhibitions at Craft Contemporary over the last ten years. Their iconic works mark time in a variety of ways and showcase the diversity of materials and processes that have made contemporary craft vibrant and relevant. This exhibition is an opportunity to reflect upon the dynamic work of these artists and highlight the impact they have had on the museum’s development over the years.

Exhibition artists: Tanya Aguiñiga, Uzumaki Cepeda, Beatriz Cortez, Keiko Fukazawa, Katherine Gray, Gronk, Sherin Guirguis, Betye Saar, Timothy Washington, and Ann Weber.

Tomoshibi: Glass Works by Kazuki Takizawa

Los Angeles-based artist Kazuki Takizawa uses glass’s dual ability to be transparent and opaque, durable and fragile, as a metaphor for living with bipolar disorder and to destigmatize mental illness. In his first solo museum exhibition ‘Tomoshibi’, meaning lamp or small light in Japanese, Takizawa stages his elaborately crafted glass vessels and installations in a darkened gallery, where lighting and shadows become integral aspects of the works.

This exhibition is supported in part by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture and a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. Additional support provided by the Glass Alliance of Los Angeles.

Cathy Cooper: Dramatis Personae

Los Angeles-based artist, performer, and costume designer Cathy Cooper presents a new series of works that oscillate between sculpture and costume. Cooper seeks to expose the inherent energy found in the textures and colors of inanimate fabrics and materials. Through layering, pairing, recombining, and repurposing her materials, Cooper creates dynamic forms that exude a range of movement and emotions.

Additional support provided by the Glass Alliance of Los Angeles.
