This show, titled Hello Hollywood, focuses on mixed-media collages created by Alexis Smith during the 1970s and 1980s. As the exhibition’s title suggests, the works often deal with the mythology surrounding Los Angeles, which is both the place of the artist’s birth and current residence. In the show’s titular installation, two rows of palm trees are set in the gallery alongside roadside advertisements for the now-defunct company Burma Shave, creating an ad-hoc version of a classically Southern Californian landscape.
