Theaster Gates : Line Drawing For Shirt And Cloak @ Regen Projects In Los Angeles

Line Drawing for Shirt and Cloak presents a complex reflection on desire, consumption and surrender using contemporary activations of the storefront as a vehicle for expressing both emotional and aesthetic intent. With a highly honed metal strategy and the artist’s entire wardrobe, this multi-faceted installation represents a conscious movement toward the freedom found when one’s appetite and the world’s insistence asks for everything, and a moment of clearing when emotive freedom is found. Line Drawing for Shirt and Cloak is on view through November 2 at Regen Projects 6750 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles. photographs courtesy of Regen Projects
