L.A. Artist Gronk on Painting for Opera and ASCO

Posted: Updated:

Los Angeles Artist Gronk appeared on the Coagula Webisode released Tuesday. He discussed painting the sets for the Peter Sellers opera Griselda with Coagula's Mat Gleason.

Fresh off the Pacific Standard Time survey of ASCO (the Chicano artist collective he co-founded in the early 1970s) at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Gronk talks about letting go of the past and reveals where his archives have landed.

No episode of the Coagula Webisode is complete without the fruitless pursuits of art history major Brandon attempting to bring contemporary art to "regular people", but the highlight of this new web series is the one-on-one forum for Los Angeles artists to speak for themselves and discuss their recent art on their own terms.
