As a huge fan of conceptual artist Joseph Beuys' work, I am ecstatic to report that Coagula Curatorial Gallery (977 Chung King Road) in Chinatown will host the exhibit 'Beuys in the Basement,' launching on April 21st.
If features 30 rare, never before seen photographs of the German-born artist also known as the 'father of performance art.' The images were taken in the '60s by photographer Michael Montfort who apparently also collaborated with Charles Bukowski.
In addition, the gallery will also launch 'Island of the Mind' (a solo show of over 100 works by artist Tim Youd) on the very same evening (opening from 7-10 p.m.).
Both exhibits will run through June 3rd.
