Here are five shows to see in Los Angeles this week:“Ed Moses: Drawings From the 1960s and 70s,” at the L. These historically have served as the backbone to his work: intensely detailed graphite floral patterns as well as his later diagonal grids, which come together to evoke both natural and machine-like landscapes. In his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, the artist who once created a picture for every page of Thomas Pynchon’s “Gravity’s Rainbow” (an epic undertaking he collected in a book) has a gathering of works that range from wild sci-fi worlds to erotic daily scenes from his life.
“After Victor Papanek: The Future Is Not What It Used to Be,” at the Armory Center for the Arts.
Among the many treasures: Thomas Hill's 1865 canvas "View of the Yosemite Valley, in California." (New York Historical Society / LACMA)“The Contenders,” a film series, at the Hammer Museum.
