Now and Then
L.A. Louver is pleased to present Juarez: Now and Then, an intimate presentation of select drawings and prints by Terry Allen. Begun in the 1960s and continuing to this day, Juarez is described by Allen as a “haunting” and by others as the axis mundi of his practice. In its entirety, this expansive project consists of drawings, texts, constructions, poems, sketches, prints, watercolors, songs, a screenplay, multi-room installations, musical theater performances (one co-written by David Byrne), and an album accompanied by a suite of lithographs and texts, among other manifestations. In the artist’s words, Juarez “has probably instigated and/or informed everything I’ve ever made.”
This presentation highlights the Nazraeli Press recent publication of Juarez, a book which reproduces, for the first time, Allen's lyrics alongside twelve new etchings in a continued expansion of the Juarez universe.
