Last Friday evening, Ratio 3 hosted the opening of the French art duo, Mrzyk & Moriceau’s show: The Man With the Golden Gun (previewed). On display were clusters of their ink drawings, masks, animated video (featuring a woman’s swaying bottom, which eventually becomes exposed and releases diamonds) and wall paintings. This was a really fun exhibition to take your time and inspect each piece to look for commentary, humor and recurring themes. More photos of the opening after the jump…
In what is shaping up to be a true multi-media experience, collaborative art duo Mrzyk & Moriceau will be unveiling a new body of work, entitled The Man With The Golden Gun, this coming weekend in San Francisco. Opening January 7th at Ratio 3, the European artistic pairing known for their playful, optical illusory black-and-white ink drawings will be taking full advantage of gallery real estate with an installation including wall paintings, masks, and video animation. Their unique visual narrative, however, should shine brightest through […]
Much like with the KAWS signing (covered), we informed you earlier in the week that Barry McGee would host a signing for his new book at the Ratio 3 booth during Art Basel Miami Beach. His impressive clusters constructed at the Bay Area booth (covered), much like those at the Roberts & Tilton’s space (covered), served as the perfect backdrop for Barry to spend some time with fans and beautify some copies of his brilliantly assembled book produced by Alleged Press and Damiani Editore. The […]
Now that the initial excitement of preview day (covered) at Art Basel Miami Beach is over with, we can continue bringing you a more thorough look-see at some of the significant booths at the main fair. Exhibiting with San Francisco based Ratio 3 (teased) is influential street artist Barry McGee. Filling the bulk of the booth’s real estate in dramatic fashion were a series of large-scale clusters from the Bay Area icon, deftly composing the mixed-media wall installations synonymous with his gallery work. Rounding out […]
Already a key player in exhibitions with OHWOW (teased) and Roberts & Tilton (teased) this coming Art Basel Week in Florida, Barry McGee will continue the all out assault on South Beach with a selection of new works for Ratio 3. One of the founding fathers of the Mission School art movement, the Bay Area street artist is known for his mix-matched “clusters”, incorporating figurative panels of his iconic characters with complimentary panels of geometric patterns and text-based pieces of his many pseudonyms used while […]
With Ratio 3 playing host, Bay Area residents came out en masse to catch a glimpse of phenom photographer Ryan McGinley’s newest body of work last night. Famously known as the youngest artist ever to have a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Life Adjustment Center (previewed) showcases in perfect detail the reasons for such an honor. Technical prowess, imaginative shot composing and a flair for the dramatic all work in concert to engage and entice the viewer, both in subdued monochromatics […]

That’s right, Ryan McGinley’s next solo exhibition will take place at Ratio 3, opening on Oct. 29. As with all McGinley shows, it will be highly anticipated and it will be huge. Stay tuned for more information.
Undoubtedly, you all have been waiting for more Armory Week ’10 coverage, and we apologize for the delay, but after nearly a week of visually-overloaded days and late nights, we had to take a break before getting to it. But now, without any further ado… In the end, we hit six fairs, including Pulse, Scope and Volta. The main attraction, of course, was The Armory Show, which was housed on two piers on Manhattan’s West side. Pier 92 focused on modern art (generally, the super […]
