LACMA Adds a Gabriella Sanchez

LACMA has acquired Gabriella Sanchez's Down Is Up (2020). Pasadena-born Sanchez draws on a background in commercial art to create political, wordplay-inflected work (she cites Sister Corita Kent and John Baldessari among her influences). Down Is Up is planned to debut at LACMA in a post-lockdown show of new acquisitions.
