Ecstasy: In and About Altered States|
Erik Davis reviews LA MOCA's psychedelic art show for ArtForum.
"At its best, 'Ecstasy: In and About Altered States' (curated by Paul Schimmel) foregrounds this tension between experience and mediation, a tension carried in the very resonance of the word ecstasy. "
"The wall text that introduces the MoCA show nowhere mentions drugs, although terms such as altered, intoxicating, hallucinatory, and the more classical bacchanalia let us know where we stand."
