Opening this month, the 29th ARCOmadrid contemporary art fair will, for the first time in three-decades, dedicate a major exhibition to an international city.
An accolade typically reserved for a country with outstanding art world influence, the fair will this year pay tribute to LA, with ‘Panorama: Los Angeles’, an exhibition which – alongside contributions from a range of Los Angeles-based artists - will showcase the work of late architectural photographer Julius Shulman.
The subject of last year’s award-winning documentary, ‘Visual Acoustics’- directed by Eric Bricker - Shulman’s photographic work will once again undergo the deifying treatment, this time in Madrid.
The Getty Research Institute-curated showcase, one in a series of displays from 17 Los Angeles galleries, will feature more than 100 rarely seen photographs from the Getty’s recently acquired Julius Shulman photography archive.
Featuring seven specific photographic episodes - including a catalogue of the competition between the urban developments of Bunker Hill and Century City; the exotic architecture of Watts Towers and the Chinese theatre; and the growth of industrial centres, the Port of Los Angeles and LAX - the show will expose Shulman’s lifelong love affair with the city, and will remain on show at Madrid's Canal de Isabel II until May 2.
