HENRY TAYLOR IN TOKYO AND LOS ANGELES

An exhibition of new paintings by Henry Taylor will be up in Tokyo through mid-May. In Los Angeles, Taylor will be honored at the ICA LA benefit brunch, with a tribute by Mark Bradford.

“For Taylor, portraiture is much more than an artistic convention of a realistic painter; the variety that he produces within the genre reshapes what might be considered a conventional language into a flexible vehicle for a much larger goal, which is to produce a multivalent but also highly specific view of contemporary life as seen through the eyes of an African American artist at the beginning of the twenty-first century.” – Laura Hoptman*

 

HENRY TAYLOR, through May 19.

David Horvitz has a lovely solo exhibition currently on view at Blum & Poe until August 23rd. The exhibition features two installations. The first, a row of clear glass vessels placed on the floor of the gallery  in a line dividing the space in two, contain clear liquid. The second installation is a series of color photographs from Horvitz’s ongoing Public Access project. In 2011, Horvitz travelled up the coast of California from Mexico to Oregon, photographing himself at public beaches. He then placed these photographs on the Wikipedia entries for each beach, often replacing the picture that was already there. The act prompted a negative response from Wiki editors, who were at first confused by the images, and then angered. In his work, Horvitz examines human response to nature, and systems of communication.
