Arcana Books Welcomes Billy Al Bengston and Joan Agajanian Quinn on September 7th

September 7, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
On Saturday, September 7th from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, stop by Arcana: Books on the Arts for a book signing and Q & A with Billy Al Bengston, moderated by Joan Agajanian Quinn.

For more than sixty years Billy Al Bengston has been an innovative and integral part of the Southern California cultural scene. A member of the original group of Los Angeles artists to exhibit at Ferus Gallery, Mr. Bengston has made a name for himself over the decades in the varied worlds of contemporary art, surfing, and dirt-track motorcycle racing. From his early Dentos and Finish / Fetish pieces to delicate watercolors of Dracula bearded irises and beyond, his work remains remarkably vibrant and ever-inventive. He has been the subject of several major museum retrospectives, but until now there has never been a single comprehensive book to fully do justice to his prolific body of work.

At long last, from Galerie Neuendorf comes that tome – Billy Al Bengston: Paintings & Watercolors! This lavishly illustrated hardbound volume features hundreds of works spanning 1957 through 2016, and contains a detailed chronology, exhibition history, bibliography, collections listing, and more.
