The Beatitudes of Malibu includes works by more than 40 artists and poets that respond to, depict, question, or are inspired by landscapes of all kinds. The exhibition borrows its title from a poem of the same name by Rowan Ricardo Phillips; in the poem’s eight parts, the poet engages in a series of encounters with natural, social, and aesthetic landscapes associated with Los Angeles, but also with the full spectrum of myths, narratives, and allusions these landscapes elicit. The Beatitudes of Malibu employs a similarly broad range of approaches to the landscape genre by bringing together artists whose paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, and poems are born of divergent—and often conflicting—legacies.
