WHEN: Now through October 31, 2010

WHERE: Pasadena Museum of California Art
490 East Union Street
Pasadena, CA. 91101

WHY:

Desire: Six Los Angeles Artists focuses on six Los Angeles-based artists whose works exemplify the contemporary landscape of desire in the city which is known for commodifying sex through its various entertainment industries. Although desire is typically viewed only in terms of pleasure, these artists have also interpreted desire as a feature of alienation, spiritualism, consumerism, and cultural and gender identification.
