‘L.A. Women’ gathers work and studio portraits of an extensive selection of artists and architects who live and work in L.A. It is the fruit of a six-month period spent in the city by Viennese artist and photographer Eva Schlegel. She did research, dialoguing and photographing on-site in the studios and offices. The artists are all international, from a grande dame like conceptual artist Mary Kelly to Laura Owens and Liz Larner. The architects are of similar importance in their field. Generously illustrated with color photographs, L.A. Women provides a personal view of a milieu not commonly seen but crucially important to understanding the context of American cultural production today. A large appendix on each artist and architect contains biographical material and an exhaustive list of exhibitions and projects.
