Mind/Map/Los Angeles: The Laurence Rickels Collection

Event Date: 

Saturday, February 16, 2013 to Sunday, March 10, 2013

Mind/Map/Los Angeles is a visual accounting of the history of the Los Angeles art scene in the 1990s and 2000s as assembled by UCSB Professor, Laurence Rickels. This installation takes as its focus artists whose works dovetailed with Rickels’ own scholarship and interest in Freudianism, especially as it relates to memory, mourning and melancholia. The collection was given by Rickels in 2011/2012 and the exhibition is organized by Katrine Bruun Jørgensen, graduate art history exchange student from University of Copenhagen.
