    Shefali Mistry leads Michelada Think Tank event on artists of color

  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

SEEING DOUBLE

By Thea Traff

In 2006, the Los Angeles-based photographer Siri Kaur encountered a Superman impersonator while walking down Hollywood Boulevard. She spoke with him at length and became fascinated by his line of work. In the years that followed, Kaur donned a Wonder Woman costume and immersed herself in the community, scouring Los Angeles and travelling to impersonator conventions in Las Vegas to photograph characters. She completed her resulting series, titled “This Kind of Face,” earlier this year.
