To coincide with Frieze London, Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel, of Mansur Gavriel, collaborated closely with the Calder estate and Alexander Calder’s grandson, Sandy Rower, to create a limited edition capsule collection consisting of four of the brand’s classic bag silhouettes, each featuring one of four iconic Calder artworks painted onto the exterior. The full collection drops on October 2, 2019.
Nonspace marks Hauser & Wirth’s first exhibition in LA for world-renowned artist, Alexander Calder. Following the landmark Somerset exhibition From the Stony River to the Sky, the presentation in LA focuses on a radically different facet of the artist’s work with a two-part exhibition of primarily monochromatic, abstract sculptures that simultaneously fill space and coexist with it. Nonspace is on view through January 6, 2019 @ Hauser & Wirth 901 East 3rd Street, Los Angeles. photographs courtesy of Calder Foundation New York / Art Resource New York
Venus Los Angeles presents Cutaways, an exhibition of new work by Holton Rower. The show, comprised of sculptures and wall-based works, will be on view from January 14th through February 24th, 2017. Cutaways marks Rower’s debut exhibition in Los Angeles. Rower’s work has long been concerned with notions of accumulation and sequencing. With this most recent body of work, he begins his process by designing a rigorous order and color scheme for the paint, which he applies layer upon layer onto a base. After the paint has built up considerable mass, Rower carves networks of intuitively placed marks into the material. These violent cuts reveal the nearly geological strata of his layered paint, which create intricate optical patterns that impart perceptibly changing frequencies to the viewer. photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper
