Robbie Conal's "The Missing Link" at Country Club LA opens November 18Juxtapoz // Friday, 12 Nov 2010
Robbie Conal's work predates many influential artists that you may already know. In the 1980's, Conal developed an "iconic, satirical portrait painting style combined with succinct, punning text to express his concerns about abuses of power by politicians, bureaucrats, and corporate power brokers." Those public, guerrilla poster campaigns during the period were legendary.
And now Country Club in LA is presenting a major survey of Robbie's work, The Missing Link, highlighting Conal’s twenty-five year arc as painter and political provocateur.
We are going to have more details next week, with our LA corresspondent, Amy Duran, heading to the show.
The Missing Link
