Fútbol: The Beautiful Game
February 2 through July 20, 2014
5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90036
A show organized by curator Fanklin Sirmans, “Futbol” anticipates the 2014 World Cup — it closes a week after the cup tournament ends — and mostly includes work that depicts the game and its players, the majority of them male in this case. Artists include Brazilian pop icon Nelson Leirner and Mexico City based conceptualist Gustavo Artigas, who enlisted a high school basketball team and soccer team to play simultaneously on the same court.
