Los Angeles: Your Concise LA Art Guide for April

Los Angeles
Apr 7, 2021 • View in browser
April is beginning to look a little brighter in Los Angeles with cherry trees, increased vaccinations, and museums opening their doors across the city. After a year of closures, institutions can finally share exhibitions that have been sitting in their galleries, including the Made in LA biennial and the exhaustive retrospective of Yoshitomo Nara at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Check out our guide.
Don’t miss rafa esparza’s show closing at Commonwealth and Council this weekend, and I highly recommend Caroline Ellen Liou’s reflection on Ben Sakoguchi’s exhibition Chinatown
As an Asian American myself, it was nothing short of painful for me to look at “Chinatown” — the mockery, the things that mark me as Other, the anti-Asian brutality that has always existed throughout American history. 
It’s been almost a year since Hyperallergic started its membership program, which has truly been a savior. If you’ve already joined us, thank you so much. If you haven’t, we hope you’ll consider joining us — every penny counts! 
And don’t forget you can boogie with Patrisse Cullors in a virtual electric slide this weekend.
