Noah Purifoy and Fierce Landscapes

This summer the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is presenting the exhibition Noah Purifoy: Junk Dada, the first monographic exhibition dedicated to Purifoy since his passing, and eight of the large-scale sculptures that normally reside in the desert have been transported to LACMA for the occasion. Since these pieces have been temporarily removed from the site where Purifoy intended them to live and be viewed, the museum has mounted them on large, sand-covered platforms as a cue to visitors that these works have come from Purifoy’s outdoor museum.
