For his latest exhibition at Lisson Gallery, artist Richard Long presents a series of text works and photographs spanning his entire practice, from the 1970s to the present day.

As textual and visual documentations of walks embarked upon worldwide, through mountains and deserts, shorelines and grasslands, rivers and snowscapes, Long’s works give poetic form to the ineffability and ephemerality of human perceptual experience.

Los Angeles – Maggie Lee: “Unique Boutique” at Gaga & Reena Spaulings Los Angeles Through February 4th, 2023January 12th, 2023
Artist Maggie Lee’s work functions on complex twists of both memories and their embellishment. Frequently approaching her works as both the material of her past and their continued presence and importance in the present, Lee’s pieces dwell on constructions of culture through materials and experiences simultaneously. For her latest show, open this month at Reena Spaulings and Gaga’s shared Los Angeles space, the artist continues this mode of practice, her delving deep into clothing as both container and surface for a range of associations and meanings.
