Los Angeles
This week, uplift your spirits and take a look at some of the fantastic art currently on display in Los Angeles (many shows are available online). Also, Eva Recinos reviews Esther Pearl Watson’s 100 paintings capturing LA life during the pandemic, and critics, curators, and friends remember Susan Landauer, a brilliant curator who invested in California artists when the art world wasn’t paying attention to them. 
Don’t forget that next Monday is MLK Day. As always, the California African American Museum has an all-day celebration in store, including a panel on Black workers and social justice. 
– Elisa Wouk Almino, Senior Editor

We’re back with our first monthly roundup of art exhibitions in 2021! There’s a mix of Los Angeles minimalism, an overlooked surrealist, exciting work from recent MFA grads, and poignant art made during the pandemic.
With such a high rate of coronavirus infections in Los Angeles, most galleries are open by appointment only or are presenting their exhibitions online.
