OCMA opens two exhibits today that couldn’t be more distinct nor enticing: “Pop Art Design” brings all the hoopla with its Mad Men allure, but “Forms of Identity” assembles art created in the 1990s by 16 prolific female artists. Chosen by curator Alyssa Cordova because their practice shifted from the political to the personal as the 20th century waned, rather than narrowing down, they tackled identity in explosive ways. Featuring Alexis Smith, Helen Pashgian, Diane Gamboa, China Adams and more, 8 of the 18 works are new acquisitions to OCMA’S permanent collection.
