In West LA…

JAFri-April17-JausUS for the closing reception of Head Space a two person exhibition featuring new sculptures by Tanya Batura, and new paintings and drawings by Brian Cooper.

Batura and Cooper were paired to exhibit together for multiple reasons. Upon first observation, one immediately notices that both demonstrate a high degree of craft, with a majority of their recent works adhering to a restrained, relatively monochromatic palette. In contrast to the somberness of …their color schemes, the works present a subtle and wry humor of sensual forms that playfully allude to their inner thoughts and ruminations.

Performing live for the evening of the closing reception will be MRK and Brian Cooper’s band Earth Like Planets.

Gagosian Beverly Hills presents fourteen early sculptures by the late Anthony Caro, some of which have never been seen in the United States. The exhibition has been prepared in close collaboration with the Anthony Caro studio.

Anthony Caro, FiFri-April17-Anthony-Caro-FirstNationalrst National, 1964, steel, painted, 55 × 113 × 116 15/16 inches (139.7 × 287 × 297 cm)

Over the course of his sixty-year career, Caro continuously reimagined the relationship between viewer and sculpture. From his beginnings as an assistant to Henry Moore during the early 1950s, he worked to contort the figure to the brink of abstraction. Subsequent decisions to bypass representational imagery altogether, and to use bright colors to synthesize the bolted and welded metal parts that replaced it, marked a breakthrough in Caro’s quest to elicit a charged response that was as optical as it was corporeal. His rejection of the pedestal to place his works directly on the gallery floor, which resulted in a direct, one-to-one relationship between viewer and artwork, was perhaps his most radical and innovative revision of sculptural tradition.

On view: April 17th – May 30th
