Where to buy...Robert Heinecken

A select exhibition in a private gallery

Robert Heinecken lanced the mass-media bubble. Beginning in the 1960s, the Los Angeles artist (1931–2006) appropriated text and images from magazines and television to explore how the media shape our inner lives and identities. A retrospective of Heinecken’s work will be shown at New York’s MoMA in the spring. This fall, L.A. gets a look at his 1986 installation Waking Up in News America, a room in which every surface, including a seated figure, is covered with images of smiling newswomen. Heinecken created the images by holding unexposed photo paper up to his TV screen and then turning the set on and off. Each face became an ominously characterless blur. At Cherry and Martin, 2712 S. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles, (310) 559-0100. Prices start at $7,000.
