MIKE KELLEY SCREENINGS

“Toward the end of his career, Mike Kelley produced works that increasingly invoked elaborate webs of references and associations. His last two videos, VICE ANGLAIS and MADE IN ENGLAND, are no exception. Join us this week for a screening of these two works at Hauser & Wirth, when John Miller —the artist, musician, and author of Mike Kelley: Educational Complex—will lead a introduction and discussion and explore some of the allusions Kelley packed into these videos. He will situate them in the decadent/romantic literary tradition, examine their basis in the narrative of Dante Gabriel Rosetti, and consider the impact of the director Ken Russell on the stylization of Kelley’s late work.”*

MIKE KELLEY—KANDORS, through January 21.

MIKE KELLEY — DAY IS DONE

Mike Kelley’s last two major projects were his Kandors sculpture series, and the related Extracurricular Activity Projective Reconstruction video series, parts of which revealed glimpses inside Krypton’s miniaturized capital city.

The remarkable new show at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, MIKE KELLEY—KANDORS 1999–2011, is, to date, the most complete view of Kandors exhibited in the United States. And this weekend, the gallery will screen Kelley’s DAY IS DONE—EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITY PROJECTIVE RECONSTRUCTIONS #2–#32 (2005/2006), featuring original music by Kelley and Scott Benzel, and choreography by Kate Foley.

CONTEMPORARY ART AND WALTER BENJAMIN’S ARCADES

Benjamin’s Arcades Project—the notes for which he left with Georges Bataille before killing himself on the Pyrenees in 1940 after leaving Nazi-occupied France—was made up of thirty-six folders on such subjects as “Fashion,” “Mirrors,” “Panorama,” “Dream City and Dream House,” and “Flâneur,” (a term Benjamin popularized). For THE ARCADES exhibition, curator Jens Hoffman (assisted by Shira Backer) has brought together works by Walead Beshty, Andrea Bowers, Chris Burden, Walker Evans, Lee Friedlander, Andreas Gursky, Pierre Huyghe, Mike Kelley, Collier Schorr, Cindy Sherman, Taryn Simon, and James Welling.

THE ARCADES: CONTEMPORARY ART AND WALTER BENJAMIN, through August 6.
