Theories on Forgetting at Gagosian, LA, maps evolutions of cultural symbolism through the work of 18 contemporary artists. Questioning how popular images originate, gain importance, obsolesce, and renew, the exhibition surveys a broad range of artworks with source amnesia: strange relics and personal figments reveal the emergence of new languages fertilised by previous ones.
