Domestic Disturbances: Ramiro Gomez in conversation with Lawrence Weschler

April 30, 2016
3:00pm  -  3:50pm
Gallery of California History — Level 2

Artist Ramiro Gomez has recently been evoking the divide between affluent Angelenos and their usually invisible domestic help—the nannies, gardeners, house cleaners, and others who make their lifestyles possible—by variously inserting ima­ges of such workers into sly pastiches of iconic David Hockney paintings, subtly doctoring glossy magazine ads, and subversively slotting life-sized painted cardboard cut-outs into real-life situations (for example, the hedges of Beverly Hills).  He will be conversing with writer Lawrence Weschler, author of Domestic Scenes: The Art of Ramiro Gomez (Abrams: April 2016).

 Conversation series events are limited to 30 participants on a first-come, first serve basis.
