‘LA Invitational’ at Gagosian West 24th Street New York
Gagosian presents “LA Invitational,” a wide-ranging exhibition of works by Los Angeles-based artists Chris Burden, Frank Gehry, Piero Golia, Mark Grotjahn, Thomas Houseago, Alex Israel, Mike Kelley, Nancy Rubins, Sterling Ruby, Ed Ruscha, Robert Therrien, Jeff Wall, Mary Weatherford, and Jonas Wood. Many works have been made specifically for this exhibition, while others are being shown in New York for the first time. Mark Grotjahn’s Untitled (Turkish Forest V Face 43.94)(2012) is the largest example of his iconic “face paintings” to date. Chris Burden’s Three Ghost Ships (1991)—never before exhibited in New York—is a set of full-size sailboats, fitted with solar panels and global satellite software for unmanned navigation.
The exhibition is on view through December 16, 2017 at Gagosian, 555 West 24th Street, New York.
