How Many Billboards? is a public exhibition mounted on Los Angeles billboards that highlights the legacies of
Californias conceptually oriented art. The show explores the living history of the trajectory of Californias conceptual
art practices, and the remarkable range and diversity of artists it continues to influence. Twenty-one billboards will be
commissioned to artists who are critically engaged in their practice and able to contribute a new work that responds to the
specificity of the billboard as media.
