Paradise Row presents Kiss Me Deadly, a group show of new art from Los Angeles framed by the sensibilities and concerns of film noir culture that flourished in L.A. in the 1940’s and 50’s.
Paintings, sculptures and film are presented in an immersive exhibition design piecing together representations of Los Angeles and its cinematic history. The selected artworks become protagonists symbolically occupying archetypal narrative roles: a femme fatale, a fall guy, a hardboiled detective, a hapless grifter, the lone wolf or simply a victim of circumstance. A group show curated by Price Latimer Agah.
