JAUS is very pleased to present a two-person exhibition featuring new works which will include an outdoor installation, sculpture, drawing, painting and one big mural by artists Mark Dean Veca and Kiel Johnson.
See image: See image: Mark Dean Veca. Hatter 2. 2016. Acrylic on canvas. 72 x 72 inches.
The idea for this exhibition arrived last year through casual conversation, as both artists expressed interest in creating outdoor projects on the JAUS premises. Veca wanted to make a large scale mural, as he has done countless times elsewhere, on one of the walls that surrounds the gallery that is visible from the street. Johnson was interested in creating a temporary installation on the exterior of the gallery itself which would give a cartoonish illusion that the building was catching fire.

Hauser Wirth & Schimmel is pleased to present ‘Maria Lassnig. A Painting Survey, 1950 – 2007,’ the first Los Angeles solo exhibition for the acclaimed late Austrian artist.
Spanning work made from the 1950s to the end of the artist’s life, this survey traces Lassnig’s evolution from early experiments with abstraction to a richly inventive figuration and the refinement of her ‘body awareness’ paintings, in which she captured physical sensation as felt from within. Lassnig devoted much of her career to recording her physiological states through a direct and unflinching style, believing that ‘truth resides in the emotions produced within the physical shell.’ Pursuing her extraordinary science of the self, Lassnig rendered an oeuvre that has influenced such important younger artists as Martin Kippenberger and Paul McCarthy.
‘Maria Lassnig. A Painting Survey, 1950 – 2007’ will be on view through 31 December 2016. The exhibition has been organized by Peter Pakesch, Chairman of the Maria Lassnig Foundation, Vienna, and Paul Schimmel, Vice-President and Partner, Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. A major international retrospective of works by Lassnig is currently touring Tate Liverpool, Liverpool, England; Kunsten Museum of Modern Art Aalborg, Aalborg, Denmark; Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany; and the National Gallery, Prague, Czech Republic, through 2018. A 2017 retrospective of Lassnig’s works on paper will travel from the Albertina, Vienna, Austria to Kunstmuseum Basel, Basel, Switzerland.

Future Tongue is beyond excited to announce Extraction, a group exhibition featuring the work of Kay Cheng, Deedee Cheriel, Bri Cirel, The Ladies Dewald, Shepard Fairey, Harry Gamboa Jr, Britt Harrison, B. Justine Jaime, Rebecca Marino, and Johnie Thornton. The show will also include a public discussion with artists Maja Runzic and Suné Woods.
Extraction is curated around the concept of memory. A memory that is so impactful that it seems to of been excavated from your body. Stolen, preserved yet removed. Despite the vivid likeness that some memories hold, they are often distorted and reconstructed with visual fillers or completely lacking of embodiment. Each artist has interpreted this extremely subjective concept through the lens of their own individual styles.
This is an ongoing event and will continue Sept 23, and Sept 30.
Be aware there is a donation requested…Refreshments will be served.
