Michael Kohn Gallery (Los Angeles) presents a selection of iconic Verifax collages and black and white photos by one of the most innovative artists of the 20th century, Wallace Berman. Berman was a prominent Beat artist of 1950’s and 60’s California counter-culture, whose assemblage and collage work can be found in most major museum collections including SFMOMA, MOCA, LACMA, the Whitney Museum of American Art, MOMA and more.
