New Yorkers are in for a treat next month (September 12th) as José Parlá will be returning for another showing (see 2011 & 2013) at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery. IN MEDIA RES will the second solo with the showspace from the Brooklyn-based artist after a joint exhibition with JR last year. The new body of work will reflect on Parla’s life, beginning from his childhood on through the present day which includes his extensive travels around the world. Featuring paintings, sculptures and a large-scale mural installation, the pieces will all reflect his study of urban landscapes and surfaces along with his storytelling through the form of calligraphy.
“In conjunction with the exhibition, Damiani will publish a new monograph, IN MEDIAS RES, with essays by Dieter Buchart, Lara Pan, and Bryce Wolkowitz. The volume is the artist’s most comprehensive survey to date, spanning the artist’s earliest sketchbooks to his current international projects and exhibitions.”
