Initiated by the Municipal Art Gallery and including seven additional venues, "LAX" is expected to become a biannual showcase for Los Angeles' contemporary art.

"About Place," a group exhibition at the Municipal Art Gallery and the Junior Arts Center is among the first of the interim year projects sponsored by the biennale "LAX: The Los Angeles Exhibition." As far as large-scale "theme" shows go, this one is about as wide open as it gets. The art assembled here deals with an expanded--indeed, elastic--notion of place: in terms of memory, fantasy, history, light, space and time. (This is only a partial list.
