California’s Most Important Painter Gets a Major Texas Moment

BY // 08.31.16

The accolades are many. W magazine called her work “riotously inventive.” In Vogue, curator Paul Schimmel called her “the most important painter to come out of Southern California in the ’90s.”

Next month, TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art lauds contemporary artist Laura Owens with the amfAR Award of Excellence for Artistic Contributions to the Fight Against AIDS. Owens’ transformative work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Kunsthalle Zürich; and the Whitney Biennial.

As a TWO x TWO honoree, she is in good company: Since its inception 18 years ago, the multi-million-dollar fund-raiser has honored Ellsworth Kelly, Richard Phillips, Julian Schnabel, and Ed Ruscha.

Owens will come to Dallas for the weeklong flurry of TWO x TWO events, and one of her works will be auctioned during the Gala on Saturday, October 22, benefitting amfAR and Dallas Museum of Art. Paddles will be flying.
