John McCracken, Works from 1963-2011 @ David Zwirner

In Los Angeles, does Zwirner have a show of Garry Winogrand, Basquiat and early Judd? McCracken is a great California counterpoint to the anger and desperation of diCorcia and Pettibon. McCracken’s large, primary-colored sculptures feel more like giant children’s blocks than cold minimalist tombs, but I guess that’s what you get from a California surfer who starts with surf boards and then goes on to making minimalist sculptures. I still think you would have had an even more amazing show if work by diCorcia, Pettibon and McCracken were combined as one large group show.

Through Oct. 19th
