The KrossD List: 5 Best Art Exhibits of 2012

'Tis the time of year when I usually cull together unsolicited lists of my favorite things of said year, music, movies, books and the like. 2012 however, provided such an unexpected bombardment of personal upheaval (the best sort of upheaval, mind you), that I have only been able to focus on the "art" type of art. It's been a great year for that. Therefore I present to you my list of the five best Los Angeles exhibits of the year (and links to my reasons why). Cheers to you all!

5) "Image Not Available" - Rero at Fabien Castanier Gallery

4) "Narcolandia" - Group show at Coagula Curatorial

3) "Zero Gravity" - Nicola Verlato at Merry Karnowsky Gallery

2) "Method Attic" - Matjames Metson at Coagula Curatorial

(drum roll please)

1) "Make It Dark" - Mecedes Helnwein at Merry Karnowsky Gallery

Honorable mentions:
"Art is a MiXTAPE" at Lebasse Projects
