SHE: Images of Women by Wallace Berman & Richard Prince,
LOS ANGELES  •  Michael Kohn Gallery  •  Ongoing

SHE features previously unseen works by Berman as well as representative pieces from Prince's signature series, Nurses and Girlfriends, and the debut of his Car-a 1986 El Camino automobile with images from his Girlfriends series superimposed on the car's body. In the 1960s, Wallace Berman (1949-1976) became a prominent figure in the counterculture movements of Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Highlights of SHE include Richard Prince's Nurse collages, a selection of Girlfriend photographs, a collaged mailbox sculpture, and finally Car. Car is the third in a series of cult cars that are wrapped in vinyl and printed with images of Prince's infamous Girlfriends (rephotographs of biker girls found in motorcycle magazines), one of which was shown this past June at the Serpentine Gallery in London in Prince's show, Continuation. Wallace Berman is represented by a series of previously unseen single-image Verifax collages, a body of rarely exhibited mailers from the collection of Teri Garr, inserts from his limited edition, hand-made artists magazine, Semina, selections from his recently discovered body of photographic portraiture, and several works incorporating images which were considered "pornography" at the time.
