Geta Brătescu. The Leaps of Aesop is the first Los Angeles solo show focusing on the work of the 92-year-old pioneer of Romanian Conceptualism. On February 17, check out The Leaps of Aesop during the show’s opening reception at Hauser & Wirth in Downtown Los Angeles on February 17.
Often inspired by the stories of literary figures, the artist’s diverse oeuvre examines such themes as identity, gender, and dematerialization. Encompassing more than 50 works spanning Brătescu’s career, the show is inspired by the ancient Greek teller of fables Aesop.
The reception takes place from 6 to 9 p.m., and the show will be on view during normal gallery hours through May 20.
