Datebook: Building upon the Woman’s Building, U.S. embassies on canvas, a non-stop performance
By Carolina A. Miranda
Enoc Perez, “Embassies,” at UTA Artist Space. There is perhaps is no better time to think about the position of the U.S. in the world, and the New York-based artist has done that by examining our country’s most symbolic international architecture: U.S. embassies. The show features a series of new paintings that record the design of these important symbols of American might, including older installations that hark back to more hopeful times, and others that take on a more paranoid, bunker-like aspect. Opens Saturday at 3 p.m. and runs through June 17. 670 S. Anderson St., Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, utaartistspace.com.
