Campbell Eight years ago Rebecca Campbell had the distinction of being signed on by Peter Goulds, director of L.A. Louver, shortly after she got her MFA from UCLA –- thus joining one of the city’s most prestigious art galleries.

“I responded to her work enthusiastically,” Goulds recalls.  “She displayed immense technical prowess far beyond her years. I was also attracted by her interdisciplinary work, the interest she had in sculpture and performance.”

Now the gallery is mounting a solo show of hers called "Poltergeist": paintings, sculpture, installation and film around the subject of childhood and family. Scarlet Cheng visited her in her L.A. gallery; their conversation is featured in Sunday's Arts & Books section.
