SOLD OUT! Awash in the Airlight: The light of LA and the art movement it helped to spawn with Lawrence Weschler
What was it about Southern California in the sixties and seventies that helped to spawn the distinctive Light and Space movement in which Helen Pashgian was to play such an important part? Some have suggested the surfing culture, or the car culture, or the proximity to Hollywood and the aerospace industry (with the optical and materials innovations they were relentlessly pouring forth), or the distance (precisely) from all the pressures and orthodoxies of the art scenes in Europe and New York, and conversely the exposure to wafting Pacific and Asian influences. All of which clearly apply. But in addition, Weschler will be considering certain seminal qualities in the Light of LA itself.
