David Kordansky Gallery presents three new exhibitions on view thru March 6, 2021. Richard Tuttle’s “Nine Stepping Stones,” “Surrender,” a group show, and “Surrender,” by Joel Mesler,
“Nine Stepping Stones,” is Richard Tuttle’s first exhibition at the gallery, and the first major presentation of the artist’s work in Los Angeles in nearly fifteen years. Featuring a new group of wall-based works, this exhibition highlights the recent production of one of the most representative American artists of the postwar period.
A group exhibition is also opening titled “These lacustrine Homes,” curated by Mai-Thu Perret. It features works by Valentin Carron, Isabelle Cornaro, Karin Gulbran, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, and Perret herself. The title of the exhibition is taken from “These Lacustrine Cities,” a poem by John Ashbery inspired by the geography of Switzerland and the social implications of living in proximity to large bodies of water.
The third exhibition, “Surrender,” features new paintings and works on paper by Joel Mesler. This is the artist’s first show at the gallery. In Mesler’s work, childhood memories and traumas fuel meditations on class, design, and popular iconography, as well as explorations of the liquid, fluid, and mutable nature of the painting process.
