The title of Jancar Gallery's current exhibition, “Vintage Work,” is both absolutely accurate and a bit of a jab. It features work by three Los Angeles women, Ilene Segalove, Susan Mogul and Hildegarde Duane, whose work in the 1970s tried to suss out how, if the personal was political, things like mother complexes and wardrobe choices could become as assertive as a stump speech. The work received minimal attention when it debuted, but now, in the art world, “'70s vintage” is in. So what does it mean when work gets recognized a few decades late? 961 Chung King Road, through Jan. 14. (213) 625-2522, jancargallery.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Dec. 17. Continues through Jan. 15, 2011
