John Divola- from the series- Dogs Chasing My Car in the Desert

At the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, another part of the John Divola show, As Far As I Could Get, currently also at LACMA, is open until 1/12.

The Dogs series was shot from Divola’s car as the dogs in the desert chased him while he was photographing abandoned buildings (these images make up another section of the show). According to Divola (when he spoke at LACMA), despite their menacing appearance in the photos, many of the dogs were friendly and mostly just excited to see someone new.

A separate show of Divola’s work called Echo Chamber is at Gallery Luisotti in Bergamot Station until 1/18.

John Divola- Seven Songbirds and a Rabbit

John Divola is speaking at LACMA tonight @7pm. Tickets are free, but required-  http://www.lacma.org/event/john-divola

His current exhibition at LACMA, John Divola: As Far As I Could Get, references a series of photos Divola made by attaching his camera to a tripod, setting a timer and running straight into the frame.

The photo above is also from the show. It is part of a series taken from stereographic negatives that he accessed from the California Museum of Photography. From these negatives, he isolates certain wildlife details.

Santa Barbara Museum of Art and Pomona College Museum of Art are also participating in this exhibition.
