L8S ANG3LES: Perspectives of Eleven LA Photographers

The Annenberg Space for Photography is set to open its doors shortly.
Located in Century City in the old Shubert Theater location, this looks to be similar to ICP in New York.
That is a good thing.

From their website:
"The inaugural exhibition of the Annenberg Space for Photography celebrates the breadth of contemporary photography through works by eight internationally renowned photographers whose images capture the complexity and vitality of the city of Los Angeles. L8S ANG3LES features different genres of contemporary photographic exploration - architecture, portraiture, photojournalism, and art - with interrelated themes weaving throughout. Moreover, through a relationship with the Los Angeles Times, L8S ANG3LES will also feature the work of celebrated Times staff photographers and a selection of archival photographs of the city going back over 100 years."
The artists contributing to the group show are great; John Baldessari, Catherine Opie, Greg Gorman, Douglas Kirkland, Tim Street-Porter, Julius Shulman, Lauren Greenfield, and Carolyn Cole. The exhibit will also include work from Los Angeles Times staff photographers depicting life in this city; Lawrence Ho, Genaro Molina, and Kirk McKoy.
I, for one, am looking forward to this. Awesome!
