ANDREA ZITTEL — WORKS 2005–2020

I always knew that I wanted my work to function in the everyday world—more so than in the art world. And ultimately New York was not my culture… I loved it there so much, but I would walk around and think, “This place is so different from where I come from, from everything that I know, and I’ll never be able to participate in a way that really matters here.” The Southern California desert is a culture that I’m really comfortable with…

I’ve worked by myself mostly because I’m comfortable putting these demands on myself that I’m not comfortable putting on anyone else, even my son. There’s a very limited scope in terms of who I’m willing to preach to. It makes me happy if my ideas challenge people, but I would imagine people taking those ideas and making their own versions of those things for themselves. It would actually be pretty weird if everyone followed my programs.Andrea Zittel*

WORKS 2005–2020Andrea Zittel’s new exhibition at Regen Projects—”brings together a diverse array of works made over a fifteen-year period that examine conceptual aspects of production, materiality, and use, and reflect Zittel’s ongoing aesthetic inquiry into what it means to exist and participate in culture today.”

The show is on view by appointment only. See link below for further exhibition details.

CHRISTINA QUARLES AT THE GEFFEN CONTEMPORARY

Christina Quarles makes expressive, gestural works that reference the history and techniques of painting, but also smartly test its limits. Her dynamic compositions often feature feminine tropes that reference domestic space—fabrics, patterns—alongside polymorphous and ambiguous figures arranged in contorted positions. Playing with the identity of the figure to expand the potential for representation in her work, Quarles explores the genre of figurative art as it has been captured in THE FOUNDATION OF THE MUSEUM—MOCA’S COLLECTION by Paul Mpagi Sepuya.*

ALEX HUBBARD — THE CORNER OF THE TABLE

The videos involve a long, slow process, hunched in front of the computer… The paintings, when they started, were about changing gears in the studio and working quickly… With most if not all of the materials I use, there is no going back. With the plastics, the urethanes, and the resins, once they are mixed, the clock is ticking. The slower I am to start, the less time I have to work with them.Alex Hubbard*

THE CORNER OF THE TABLE—Hubbard’s solo show at Regen Projects—includes his new multimedia works on linen and cotton as well as two handmade projectors streaming animated videos.
