Los Angeles County Museum of Art presents Kaz Oshiro: Chasing Ghosts

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents Kaz Oshiro: Chasing Ghosts at Charles White Elementary School an exhibition on view through June 7, 2014, as part of its ongoing engagement with the museum’s surrounding community. Los Angeles–based artist Kaz Oshiro is recognized for his re-creations of full-size replicas of everyday objects, including microwaves, dumpsters, and file cabinets. Many of his works appear as ready-made objects, however, they are constructed mostly from canvas. By using painting materials to fabricate sculpture, Oshiro’s work blurs the distinction between two media. Kaz Oshiro: Chasing Ghosts will feature new works by the artist, a collaborative project created by the artist and Charles White Elementary School students, and objects from LACMA’s permanent collection selected by Oshiro, including works by artists Lee Krasner, John Altoon, and Mark Grotjahn. Also, Kaz Oshiro’s Dumpster (Yellow and Blue Swoosh) (2010), a recent gift to LACMA’s collection, will be on view in the Charles White Elementary School Gallery for the first time since being acquired in 2012.
