The exhibition ‘Joan Quinn Captured’ showcases what is perhaps the largest portrait collection by contemporary artists in the world, including such luminaries as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Shepard Fairey, Frank Gehry, Robert Graham, David Hockney, Ed Ruscha, Beatrice Wood and photographers Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton, Matthew Rolston and Arthur Tress. For the first time, this portrait collection exhibits in collaboration with renowned works of the artists encouraging a dialogue between the portraits and specific artist movements. The exhibition also portrays the world Joan Agajanian Quinn as experienced by her work as editor for her close friend Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, along with contributions to some of the most important fanzines of the 1980’s that are proof of her role as a critical taste maker of her time. A special highlight is the historical recording in snapshots of the emerging Los Angeles art scene and the influence of the artistic interchange Quinn fostered between London, Tokyo and New York.
Curated by Laura Whitcomb in collaboration with curatorial advisors Amanda Quinn Olivar and Cheryl Bookout.
