Please join ArtTable’s SoCal Chapter for artist and director-led walkthroughs of current exhibitions Kayne Griffin Corcoran and David Kordansky galleries featuring an intergenerational array of leading artists representative of the current American artistic landscape.
Beginning at Kayne Griffin Corcoran, artist Raul Guerrero will guide us through Sonoran Desert: Flora, Fauna, Artifacts, his inaugural show with the gallery featuring recent paintings informed by his personal relationship to the Sonoran Desert. Interweaving autobiography and ethnography, Guerrero revisits issues of identity and culture, which have been central to his practice for upward of four decades.
KGC director Jamie Manné will present the work of Hank Willis Thomas on display in An All Colored Cast, the artist’s first solo show with the gallery. Drawing on sources as diverse as popular culture, postwar aesthetics, and the film industry, Thomas examines the loaded language associated with color theory and calibration charts to shed light on questions of gender, race and identity.

The program will continue across South La Brea at David Kordansky, with solo exhibitions of recent work by Angeleno artist Lauren Halsey and New York-based Pakistani sculptor Huma Bhabha.
Revisiting the visual urban fabric of South Central L.A. of her youth, Halsey packs her first show at the gallery with a colorful cacophonous maze of sculptural painting installations that engage with her ongoing concerns related to monuments, memorials, and public space in the face of gentrification and the displacement of local communities.
Characteristic of Bhabha’s range of visual and material vocabularies, her recent sculptures and drawings on view incorporate multiple processes and traditions, blending archaic and contemporary sources to create humanoid figures that address universal existential themes.
