Cameron - Songs For The Witch Woman
Now on view at The Pacific Design Center, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles presents a very dark and intriguing exhibition focusing on one of L.A.’s underground occult artists. Cameron arrived in Hollywood after WWII and began working in Pasadena, where she met Jack Parsons, founder of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, noted occultist and follower of Aleister Crowley. The two would eventually marry and Cameron’s art would be forever influenced.
This is her first solo exhibition since her passing in 1995 and the surrealist, mythical and esoteric works show how vital her role was in L.A.’s counterculture.
On view until January 11, 2015. More information at MOCA.
