Clint Eastwood spoke out recently about the proliferation of Botox in Hollywood. His role model, the woman he cites as a delectable throwback to the time when Hollywood embraced individual beauty: the impossibly radiant, effortlessly delicious Angelina Jolie. What, pray we, does he suggest today’s leading ladies do to upkeep Jolie’s Botox-less miracle? Perhaps something like this: a woman, wrapped in plastic, self-preserving, stewing in her own ruddy fumes like a lemon in a Moroccan kitchen. Lynn Hershman Leeson presents this sealed woman in many more elegant to indelicate positions at bitforms gallery through June 5. —Emma Pearse Artist Lynn Hershman Leeson Discovers Secret of Eternal Youth: Reynolds Wrap
