Openings: Ryan McGinness – “SponsorshipREDUX” @ Subliminal Projects

Last Saturday, Ryan McGinness hit up the final leg of his exhibition schedule in LA with a show at Subliminal Projects. SponsorshipREDUX is a remix of his 2003 show, where corporate logos were sized on the gallery walls according to their level of sponsorship for the exhibition.  This time around, the logos (including ours), were deconstructed and the parts used as compositional ingredients in a series of four paintings and two print editions.

Openings: Ryan McGinness – “Women: The Blacklight Paintings” @ The Standard (Los Angeles)

Ryan McGinness showed a darker side to his work on Saturday night, when the third installment of his Women: The Blacklight Paintings series opened at The Standard Hotel’s Purple Lounge in West Hollywood. As with the events at Art Basel Miami last year (covered) and in New York early this year (covered), his luminescent deconstructions of the female form graced the walls of the establishment while similarly painted dancers cavorted about the room.  Of note, coinciding with the party was also the release of McGinness’ Blacklight Nudie […]

Openings: Ryan McGinness – “Trophies” @ PRISM

Last night, PRISM filled its spacious gallery rooms with Trophies, the fourth in a series of shows from Ryan McGinness. As with the other Los Angeles exhibitions we have already covered (Michael Kohn & Country Club), this showing centered around a theme – gold sculptural pieces based on his Women series or works. Along with some wall murals, these 3-dimensional representations from the NY-based artist are taken from his deconstruction of the female form. More opening pics after the jump from Brandon Shigeta.

Openings: Ryan McGinness – “Works on Paper” @ Country Club (Los Angeles)

Opening his Los Angeles spring marathon of exhibitions on Thursday night with Recent Paintings (covered), Ryan McGinness followed things up with Works on Paper (previewed) at Country Club’s local gallery space last night. The show chronicled new and old works on paper, all told exemplifying the notable New York artist’s diversity in composition, imagery, and palette achieved through his trademarked screenprinting methodology. With a host of exhibitions still to come in the ensuing weeks, these two bodies of work served as a welcome reminder to […]
