Revisit Luis Barragán’s Work Through the Lens of Photographer Tim Street-Porter at Art Division
Twentieth-Century Mexican architect Luis Barragán wasn’t widely known when Tim Street-Porter started shooting his work. The acclaimed California-based photographer documented nearly every Barragán house south-of-the-border for his 1989 photo book Casa Mexicana, which “sold about 130,000 copies altogether and was given as an official Christmas present by the President of Mexico,” he notes. For those yet to come under the late architect’s spell, Street-Porter says that his pictures showcase a “mysterious monastic quality.” Dan McCleary selected 11 of the most colorful and abstract to exhibit this month in the public gallery at Art Division, his non-profit visual arts academy, in the Rampart district of Los Angeles. Pinned simply on the wall, the oversized photo prints will absolutely energize at-risk youth studying there. On view October 15-29 at 2432 W. 6th Street.
