Cool School

Documentary. Anyone who even glances at the history of modern art on the West Coast will find some mention of the Ferus Gallery, which operated in Los Angeles from 1957 to 1966. A pivot point in that city's half-century transition between cultural backwater and international art center, Ferus has waited too long for the snappy documentary treatment it receives from Morgan Neville and co-writer Kristine McKenna. The brainchild of revered curator Walter Hopps (1932-2005), Ferus began life as a showcase - which almost nobody noticed at the time - and a gathering spot for ambitious artists in the buttoned-up '50s.
