Los Angeles-based artist Alex Israel is staging an "intervention" at the Huntington Library. Sixteeen of his paintings and sculptures plus two site-specific murals will be integrated into the museum's Gilded Age mansion. Driven by the cult of celebrity, Israel's bright, pop culture-inspired pieces provide a sharp contemporary contrast to the gallery's ornate decor and classic European artwork.
