Oh, to be a young artist in L.A. in the 1960s. It was the epicenter of cool, as Hunter Drohojowska Philip says in the introduction to her new book. Rebels in Paradise tells the story of how Ed Ruscha, David Hockney, Ed Keinholtz and others created a new contemporary art movement based here in L.A. Hunter Drohojowska Philip joins Madeleine to tell the story of a scene that coalesced around one particular gallery in L.A., a scene made up of individuals rebelling against New York’s art scene.
