    More
    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

Learner joined Gluckman's firm after graduating from Harvard, and worked there from 1992-95. His own office, Steven Learner Studio, in Manhattan, works with art collectors and galleries such as Sean Kelly Gallery and Haunch of Venison. In 2013, he launched the Collective Design Fair, N.Y.

While Steven was at Otis, he worked in the Ben Maltz Gallery on the design for Robert Wilson's "Civil Wars" installation. Wilson's creative sensibility inspired him to focus on spatial clarity, proportions and light in thje interiors and architecture he has designed since his firm started in 1995.
