Meet Ian White
Meet Ian White, son of Now Dig This! artist Charles White, a featured guest at the exhibition celebration on Thursday, September 19. White will take part in a conversation with curator Kellie Jones and artists Alonzo Davis and Maren Hassinger.
Ian White is a Los Angeles-based artist (1987 (BFA) from the San Francisco Art Institute 1995 (MFA) at the Otis School of Design, Los Angeles), art professor and curator who has exhibited his work throughout the United States. Besides his mixed media, video, and sculptural work, White is also a well-recognized muralist in Los Angeles, having designed and executed several mural commissions throughout the city. Although White’s work is conceptually based, it is also deeply concerned with social and political issues.
White is currently producing a video on legendary Los Angeles artist Noah Purifoy’s 10 acre Joshua Tree environment for an up-coming retrospective at the L.A. County Museum of Art in March 2014. White is the son of Charles White, an artist recognized as an American master of figurative painting, printmaking, and drawing. White is curator of the Charles White Gallery at the CEJJES Institute in Pomona, New York, and is director of the Charles White Estate and Archive.
