Ruth Pastine: Present Tense

Carnegie Art Museum

March 15 through May 24, 2015

The Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard is showing pastel abstractions by Ruth Pastine that it describes on its website in one dense sentence: "perceptual interactions of saturated and nuanced color relationships that investigate light and spatial interplay."

Charles Gaines: Librettos - Manuel de Falla / Stokely Carmichael

Art + Practice

Last Chance - February 28 through May 31, 2015

The inaugural exhibition at Art + Practice, the new space artist Mark Bradford opened with activist Allan DiCastro and philanthropist Eileen Norton in Leimert Park, is of work by Charles Gaines. A libretto about a gypsy who loses her love because of class divisions appears printed on plexiglas boxes while a speech by Stokely Carmichael appears beneath the music on faded paper.

Mexico: Fantastic Identity

Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA)

March 14 through July 5, 2015

Frida Kahlo's surreal painting My Dress Hangs Here is in this show. So is work by intrepid Leonora Carrington, cubist drawing by Diega Rivera and collages by muralists José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros. It's pretty much a who's who of 20th century Mexican art.

Transgender Hirstory in 99 Objects: Legends & Mythologies

ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives

March 21 through July 11, 2015

The title for this show takes inspiration from the Smithsonian’s book American History in 101 Objects, and the subsequent A History of the World in 100 Objects by the BBC and British Museum. Historical items from the One Archive's collection will show alongside work by nine contemporary artists, among them Wu Tsang and Sam Lopes, who will be showing papier-mâché sculptures of hybrid creatures "and the bears they love."
