Gonzalo Lebirija “Veladuras Nocturnas “ exhibition @kohngallery on view during Frieze Week Lebrija is one of the most celebrated artists working in Mexico today who has exhibited extensively throughout Europe, the United States and Latin America. Lebrija’s multi-media approach toward art making has become highly regarded in his ability to simultaneously employ painting, photography, film and sculpture, combined often into one exhibition or series of work. At Kohn Gallery, the artist will present a group of nine new paintings on linen, entitled Veladruas (Veils), while in Gallery 2, Lebrija will present a single, dramatic sculpture of a Bic lighter with an unceasing, eternal flame. Gallery 3 houses an installation of Lebrija’s film, Via Láctea, exploring the fluid shapes and forms of tobacco smoke while exposing underlying social and political relationships related to smoking.

Sharing the language of Mexico’s contemporary art scene, Lebrija brings a strong conceptual and poetic character to his oeuvre. In his Veladuras (Veils), paintings depict triangular overlays of thinly applied oil paint, becoming darker and more complex as each layer interacts with the other. What appears to be a simple, elegant geometric abstraction is actually a complex composition based upon the folds of a paper airplane, alluding to the lightness, ingenuity and ephemerality of this invention. By extension, the viewer can sense an existential philosophy in Lebrija’s subtle and immensely beautiful abstract paintings. Image Details: Gonzalo Lebirija “Veladura Nocturna (Flame)

Kohn Gallery presents Dennis Hopper: The Lost Album, a re-envisioning of Hopper’s first photography show in 1970. Curators, Claudia Bohn-Spector and Sam Mellon of MICRONAUT, have thematically re-envisioned the exhibition with a fresh take on Hopper’s Fort Worth show, presenting surviving prints in a new, critical context for his work. On view are photographs including some of Hopper’s most iconic work, arranged in evocative narrative groupings that encapsulate his unique and conceptual photographic practice.
The Lost Album is an exciting collection of more than four hundred photographs taken in the 1960’s by Dennis Hopper, the American actor, director, and artist, mounted on board, and in some cases numbered on the reverse with brief notes handwritten by Hopper. Forgotten, stored in some obscure place in five boxes, these pictures were unearthed after Hopper’s death in 2010. Hopper personally selected these images for his first major exhibition from the plethora of photographs he had taken between 1961 and 1967. Snapshots show him installing these works, in 1970, at the Fort Worth Art Center Museum together with the then director, Henry T. Hopkins. The resurfaced body of work is a testament to one of his most formative periods, consisting of small-scale panels. Mounted on cardboard, the photographs were fixed directly to the wall with neither frames nor glass by means of small strips of wood attached to the reverse.
The legendary images – spontaneous, intimate, and poetic, as well as political and sharply observant – documents the protagonists and milieus of a crucial period. They reflect America’s dynamic cultural scene in the sixties and the atmosphere of the time. Exerting an irresistible fascination, they take viewers on a journey into the past, which is, in many cases, their own history. In addition to his iconic portraits of Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Paul Newman, and Jane Fonda, Hopper’s interest was all-encompassing. #dennishopper #hopperkohn #lostalbulm #californiaartist

Sneak peak of Dean Byington exhibition which opens to the public tomorrow night @kohngallery Kohn Gallery is pleased to present Bay Area artist Dean Byington’s first solo show at the gallery, titled Theory of Machines. This exhibition will feature nine complex new oil paintings in the main gallery space.

Byington work references religious conflict and terrorism in the Middle East and Western Europe alongside the damage wrought by human processes such as climate change and urban sprawl into previously uninhabited regions. On view will be the painting, Theory Of Machines (Grand Saturn), the third and most complex version of the Saturn series, which engages with issues of humanity’s impact on the world. This painting references Edwin Church’s The Heart Of The Andes re-configured within screens and panels above a dystopian landscape, inverting Church’s attempt to produce a “pure” landscape–a monumental imagining of the untouched environment. #deanbyinton #byingtonkohn #contemporaryart #californiaartist #nottobemissed

A Closing Performance at 1pm on April 30th and a sculptural installation with audio component compose Albuquerque's artwork for DesertX, hEarth. A play on words- a gathering site for storytelling, the ear, Earth - the artwork's title speaks to art's ability, here, through movement, voice and sculpture, to both listen and become a catalyst from for action. @kohngallery @litaalbuquerque @_desertx #encoreperformance

Kohn Gallery is pleased to announce its representation of Los Angeles–based artist Tony Berlant, a seminal figure who, alongside fellow LA artists Ed Ruscha, Bruce Conner, and Joe Goode, was instrumental in establishing the aesthetic sensibility of the West Coast Pop Art movement. At the ADAA 2017 Art Show, Kohn Gallery will present works by Berlant and the late Bruce Conner as part of its dedication to preserving the legacy of Californian artists and illuminating their continuing importance within the flourishing Los Angeles art scene. Berlant was greatly influenced by his early friendship with Conner, and the gallery’s booth at The Art Show will include mixed-media paintings and sculptures by Berlant alongside rare assemblages, photos, inkblot paintings, and sculptures by Conner.
