    Who wasn't a little a lot pissy when the producers of Lost decided to have complete disdain for their audience, and left all of those quixotic plotlines unbuttoned? It's not like from the get-go the show was transparent with Lynchian expectations of ambiguity, either — this was ABC, after all! With millions of analyses now flowing in the mainstream, theories abound, and there's simply no denying the series' robust stamp on culture far and wide.

    Well, the artistes of France were no exception to the frenzy, and in a rad collab fostered by the France Los Angeles Exchange (FLAX), the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), and Paris' Palais de Tokyo, 60 artworks inspired by this abyss of incomprehension are on display, starting today at Barnsdall Art Park. Curated by Marc-Olivier Wahler, "LOST (in LA)" intertwines creators from both countries in one of the most innovative exhibits we've seen hit Tinseltown.

    Concrete circular sculptures act as windows of what's to come, geometric cardboard ceiling installations cast angular shadows throughout the space, foam oozes from garbage-can fountains, and an "Abandon Weed" (courtesy of Tony Matelli) even grows in a lonely corner. And, if you've ever lounged at Barnsdall after an art class or tour of the Hollyhock House, you know it's a pretty magical place, almost akin to its own mysterious island above the streets of Lala's mayhem.

    With the aesthetes of France paired up with the graphic storytellers of L.A. and a surreal treat of a small-screen theme, this is a vortex of visuals for any walk of life! Click through for a sneak peek at this scene-stealer, but if you're looking for resolutions to your inner-TV turmoil, you'll only find more fodder to urge a Hurley/Jack/Sawyer/Kate DVD marathon.

    LOST (in LA) at Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park, 4800 Hollywood Boulevard (near North Vermont Avenue); December 1 through January 27, 2013, Thursday through Sunday, 12 to 5 p.m.
