The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles is showing a stunning collection of works by artists Barbara Bloom, Andrea Fraser, and Louise Lawler in its ongoing exhibit. The exhibition, concluding on July 15, 2018, is titled “Decor: Barbara Bloom, Andrea Fraser, Louise Lawler.”

“‘Decor,’” at its core is dedicated to exploring the many ways art is displayed and presented. “The exhibition is centered around Bloom’s rarely seen “The Reign of Narcissism” (1988-89), a full-scale faux-neoclassical period room dedicated to a fictionalized version of the artist. Replete with crown moldings, gilded chairs, vanity mirrors, and plaster busts of the artist, the installation revels in the slippage between interior decorating and museum display,” writes MOCA.

Photographs and videos by artists Andrea Fraser and Louise Lawler, which are on view at the exhibit, are focused on “images of art in museums and the typically overlooked architectural details of institutions.” The duo, in their works, explores the decor of museum interiors, the way in which objects are arranged, and the meanings it carries.

The exhibition will be on view until July 15, 2018, at the Museum of Contemporary Art,  250 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90012, USA.
