Some of the Whitney Biennials, which "Made in LA' is a bit patterned after, have so overly focused on cultural-political messaging instead of skill, talent and aesthetics, that I'm never quite sure if such exhibits are going to be about as welcome as a high-school pop quiz or as satisfying as a McDonald's hamburger.

^^^ Hey, aren't you the anti-Save-the-LACMA-mob/anti-MAGA person?

If so, how 'ya doing?

Incidentally, LACMA should do the compassionate thing and once their concrete overpass is completed, create a homeless shelter under it. That may help the folks a few miles west of the museum's reasonably budgeted rebuilding project.

MADE IN LA, again, VERY predictable, lame, safe, and serving ONLY the interest of the curators and the few sexy and privileged (some of that so called “underrepresented”) artists and their commercial galleries. Mostly mediocre, still commercial art, for the LA "art world" bubble and their interests. Waste of big budgets on privileged few to pretend different and to build on the power
