The RIDDLE Effect highlights artist John T. Riddle Jr.’s (1933–2002) sculptural work from Los Angeles collections and examines his influence as a foundational member of the Black Arts Movement in Los Angeles. The exhibition highlights Riddle’s innovative art practice with several works exhibited for the first time in Los Angeles. Works by his students and colleagues – including Dan Concholar, Dale Brockman Davis, Charles Dickson, Mark Steven Greenfield, John Outterbridge, Bret Price, Noah Purifoy, Joe Sims, and Timothy Washington – will also be presented alongside Riddle’s to honor his expressive practice and impact on the L.A. arts community.
