    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.

Creativity Indexes

The Creative Vitality™ Index (CVI™) is an index and research tool that measures annual changes in the economic health of an area by integrating economic data streams from both the for-profit and non-profit sectors. The Creative Vitality™ Index is a resource for informing public policy and supporting the work of advocates for creative economies.
