Homes on the wing-inspired Bird Streets in the Hollywood Hills were coveted long before George Harrison wrote Blue Jay Way. (The song was a plea to his friends to find his house in the fog before he fell asleep. Sadly, this was pre-GPS.) The Bird Streets enclave is known for its stunning architectural homes.

"I went into this exhibition with one vision of Purifoy," says its co-curator. "I came out with twelve." Noah Purifoy: Junk Dada is the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s long-awaited retrospective of the man LA Times art critic Christopher Knight says may be “the least well-known pivotal American artist of the last 50 years.” Works range from the stunning assemblage sculptures Purifoy made from debris he collected immediately after the 1966 Watts Rebellion to more recent monumental assemblages erected at Joshua Tree. In a time when racial conflicts and unrest once again dominate the headlines, Purifoy’s vision resonates with renewed, moving power. more »
