With a Little Help from My Friends
A solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist and curator Carl Berg in his first museum show. Berg has asked over one hundred artists, curators, critics, collectors, family and friends, whom he calls his “collaborators”, to name their favorite music album. From this list Berg has created over one hundred works using various imaging software programs visually abstracting lyrics and/or music that are then printed as archival inkjet prints. He describes this process as
“painting with symbols”.
