Los Angeles is often referred to through clichés related to its climate, to Hollywood and to lifestyle in general, but there is another side to Los Angeles, a darker side, which has to do with the complexity of society in terms of race and class.

Astrup Fearnley Museet brings L.A. to Oslo with the exhibition Los Angeles - A Fiction. The exhibition presents 34 artists and 84 writers from the past 50 years, and together they create a fictional and subjective view of Los Angeles. The artists range from young and aspiring artists to their well-established predecessors in Californian art history. The literature consists of a selection of texts written in and about Los Angeles during the same period, presented in the form of a book.

Curators: Gunnar B. Kvaran (AFM), Thierry Raspail (MAC Lyon) and Nicolas Garait-Leavenworth, assisted by an advisory board including Hans Ulrich Obrist (Serpentine Galleries, London), Ali Subotnik (Hammer Museum, Los Angeles) and artist Alex Israel.

The exhibition is a collaboration between the Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo, Norway and Museum of Contemporary Art, Lyon, France. For more information about the exhibition and participating artists, visit Astrum Fearnley Museet's website.
