The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist, who was an assistant to Jason Rhoades, creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. Work by Alex Israel is included in the collections of the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Holland, MOCA, Los Angeles, CA, LACMA, Los Angeles, CA, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, MoMA, New York, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo.
