Photographer Ryan McGinley, who has been flexing his film-making muscles as of late, recently hooked up with EDUN (fashion label of Ali Hewson and her husband, U2 singer Bono) to produce a video for their Fall/Winter 2012 collection. The aesthetic used should be familiar to fans of McGinley’s photo series featuring his models posing with wild animals, first introduced with his Team Gallery solo, Everybody Knows This is Nowhere (covered), and further developed with the inclusion of wild animals during his Life Adjustment Center (covered) […]

After bringing you photos of Ryan McGinley’s Animals showing at the Grand Street Team Gallery location in New York, we now continue our coverage with a look at the concurrently showing Grids at the Wooster space. This new body of work consists of three huge grids of individual portraits of fans at concerts (similar subject matter with Moby), derived from the photographer’s own love affair with rock music and live performance. Each snap is a captured moment in time with each awash with colored light […]
Last week, photographer Ryan McGinley opened shows simultaneously at Team Gallery’s two New York locations entitled Animals & Grids. We will focus first on the showing on Grand Street where McGinley continued his portraiture featuring nude models interacting with live animals. The artist visited various sanctuaries, zoos, and rescue establishments across the United States, erecting a mobile studio where he collaborated with animal trainers to pose subjects (animal and humans) in bizarrely seductive and symbiotic compositions. Discuss Ryan McGinley here.
Opening simultaneously on Wednesday (May 2nd) at both of Team Gallery’s two New York locations will be Ryan McGinley’s Animals & Grids. The space on Grand Street will host the NY-based photographer’s growing body of work, Animals, which features his studio portraits of nude models with live animals, leading to a sometimes unpredictable result in an otherwise controlled setting. For Team’s other space on Wooster, Grids consists of three huge grids of individual portraits of fans at concerts building upon McGinley’s repertoire of concert photography.
With his aesthetic continuing to gain traction in the world of fashion, this newest project from Ryan McGinley was commissioned by Vogue UK. Shooting model Sienna Miller for the magazine’s April issue, the New York-based photographer utilized some of his signature looks such as the play of motion & focus, nude portraiture with birds, and explosive techniques. The resulting work shows the effervescent beauty captured perfectly with his lens for a fresh and vivid set of pics. Pick up the issue to take a look for […]
As members of a special group of artists from NY, Ryan McGinley, Dash Snow, and Dan Colen will be forever linked – all have achieved their success in their own right, some more infamously than others. The Triology Exhibition brings three of them together for a show at The Ring Art Center during Art Basel Miami Week and was certainly one of the highlights for AM. More photos after the jump…
For his first London exhibition at Alison Jacques Gallery since the celebrated Moonmilk series over two years ago, Ryan McGinley has assembled seven new photographs, all in the largest format the American artist has yet worked in. Wandering Comma features photographs harmoniously balancing the orchestrated and the unpredictable, the staged and the spontaneous. Although the images begin with choreographed scenarios, the images that result are never wholly pre-meditated leaving their own freedom and initiative to the models or situation. Running through Thursday, December 22nd, Wandering Comma is a must-see show for anyone in and around the London area. […]
A couple weeks back at Frieze, Alison Jacques Gallery gave collectors a sample size serving of the goodness in store for Ryan McGinley’s upcoming exhibition. In his first London solo since the pivotal Moonmilk show over two years ago, Wandering Comma will see the New York photographer continue delving deeper into his now signature dueling bodies of work – the vivid staged “happenings” and the penetrating monochromatic portraits – first seen juxtaposed together at last year’s Life Adjustment Center and then again during Somewhere Place […]
London’s Frieze week kicked off properly on Wednesday 12 October with the preview for Frieze Art Fair in Regent’s Park. AM has long been a Frieze enthusiast. The calibre of its exhibitors and their booths makes most other contemporary art fairs look provincial in comparison. Conscious of the international spotlight, the big fish bring out the big guns and do whatever else they can to retain their dominance, while the ambitious smaller galleries pull out the stops to try raising the bar even higher for […]
Alison Jacques Gallery returns to the Frieze Art Fair this year and its booth features some amazing works by the gallery’s impressive roster of artists. Highlights include new large photographic pieces by Ryan McGinley (also see Team Gallery booth), which will be shown alongside works by the London gallery’s roster of artists, such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Lygia Clark, and Thomas Zipp. Make this booth a destination if you are visiting the fair.
