Approximately 60 paintings from pioneering LA artist Laura Owens are on view in a sweeping mid-career survey at The Geffen Contemporary, marking the most comprehensive showing of the artist’s many varied styles to date. Sharing the behemoth space is Zoe Leonard: Survey, the first large-scale showing of the acclaimed New York–based artist’s career in an American museum. Two wildly divergent visual styles from two masterful artists make for a fascinating pairing. This is a must-see. Weekend admission to the exhibition is free.
