Billy Al Bengston, John Altoon, Ed Moses, Craig Kauffman & Giorgio Morandi - Ferus: A Visual Conversation

Mon-Fri: 10-6pm; Sat: 12-6pm

JD Malat Gallery is thrilled to announce the historic group show Ferus: A Visual Conversation which will showcase never before seen artworks by Billy Al Bengston (b.1934) , John Altoon (1925 – 1969), Ed Moses (1926 – 2018), Craig Kauffman (1932 – 2010) and Giorgio Morandi (1890 – 1964).

Opening the new season with an exhibition dedicated to the artistic relationships that flourished within the Ferus Gallery, JD Malat Gallery seeks to examine the centrality of visual exchange amongst these established figures during the 1950s and 1960s.

For just nine years, from 1957 – 1966, the Ferus Gallery was one of the most important galleries in Los Angeles, helping to launch a generation of artists who would go on to have international careers, as well as bringing a number of East Coasts artists, including Andy Warhol, Josef Albers, Giorgio Morandi, Frank Stella and Roy Lichtenstein to the West Coast. The Ferus Gallery has since been celebrated for its role in the development of the nascent art scene in Los Angeles and the emergence of the Cool School.
