LACMA Acquires Allison Schulnik Video

Mark Moore Gallery is thrilled to announce that the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) recently confirmed its acquisition of gallery artist Allison Schulnik’s award-winning work titled Mound, (2011). Featuring an array of hand-sculpted and sewn puppets, the labor-intensive piece took over eight months, at times requiring 2 hours to create a single frame. The musical accompaniment to the film is “It’s Raining Today,” graciously lent by legendary singer-songwriter Scott Walker. Originally released in 1969, the moody melodramatic song perfectly reflects the simultaneous solidarity and isolation in her world of “rejects, misfits and their landscapes.”

Congratulations, Allison!
