Singular Views: Los Angeles

December 4th, 2023 to October 20, 2024

 

Los Angeles artists have always been a cornerstone of the Rubell Museum and in 2006 the group exhibition Red Eye: L.A. Artists from the Rubell Family Collection explored the cross-generational influences of 36 artists working between the 1980s and mid-2000s.

This exhibition, Singular Views: Los Angeles, reflects the Rubells’ continued commitment, 17 years later, to discovering and sharing new art created in this multifaceted city. Singular Views focuses on 16 artists—working across painting, sculpture, and video—who mine the psychological, emotional, and imagined spaces that compose Los Angeles, creating their own contemporary archaeology and cultural anthropology. Many of the artists utilize physical backdrops that reference storefronts, automobiles, graffiti-laden facades, and human flesh. The remnants of a post-industrial age mixed with highly personalized motifs characterize these works. 

The artworks reflect and deflect personal connections, traditions, and concerns of a culture unique to Los Angeles while recognizing origins from afar. These artists open our eyes to a new understanding of life in the diversely complex landscape that is Los Angeles.

Miami, FL—November 28, 2023—The Rubell Museum Miami announced today that it will open a slate of new exhibitions during Miami Art Week 2023, showcasing work by the Museum’s Knight Foundation-supported 2023 artists-in-residence Basil Kincaid and Alejandro Piñeiro Bello, as well as Singular Views: Los Angeles, encompassing solo presentations by LA-based contemporary artists. Also on view will be a reinstallation of the Museum’s beloved Collection Highlights, drawn from the Rubell Family’s expansive collection of contemporary art and spotlighting works by Sonia Boyce, Cecily Brown, Nick Cave, Yayoi Kusama, Kerry James Marshall, Tschabalala Self, and Purvis Young, among others. The Collection Highlights exhibition is accompanied by the publication of Collection Highlights and Artist Writings, the most comprehensive catalogue of the Rubell Family’s collection history and holdings to date. These exhibitions will be on long-term view through November 2024.

 

From December 4, 2023, the Rubell Museum debuts the work of the 2023 participants in its acclaimed artist-in-residence program, Basil Kincaid and Alejandro Piñeiro Bello, through solo exhibitions culminating their time at the Museum, Basil Kincaid: Spirit in the Gift and Alejandro Piñeiro Bello. The post-disciplinary practice of Basil Kincaid, a St. Louis-born artist who splits their time between the U.S. and Africa, examines relationships between ancestry, place, and the contemporary constructed self. Throughout their work, Kincaid incorporates quilting, collaging, photography, installation, performance, and the use of found materials. Havana-born, Miami-based artist Piñeiro Bello focuses his practice on the Caribbean diaspora, Cuba, and the surrounding island nations’ cultural identities, imagery, and history. He paints the sociocultural mystic splendor of the Caribbean’s culture using traditional materials, such as oil on raw linen or burlap, and works with a strong color palette to create images that capture the region’s fecundity.

“The Museum’s new exhibitions advance our mission to share our collection with audiences from our local community and around the world, and to foster public dialogue about the approaches contemporary artists take to investigate the most important issues of our day,” said Mera Rubell. “From the culmination of our annual artist residency to new commissions stemming from recent studio visits to collection highlights, visitors can explore a vast range of contemporary art and consider how these works reflect the conditions, experiences, and perspectives that both shape and define our present culture.”

Tesfaye Urgessa

November 28, 2022 - November 12, 2023

 

Tesfaye Urgessa (b. 1983, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, lives and works in Nürtingen, Germany)

In Tesfaye Urgessa's work, there is a mute reciprocity between the observer and the observed that shifts the power dynamics and the notion of agency and race. Drawing on his childhood memories of Ethiopia, each composition is derived from the depths of Urgessa’s subconscious, where disjointed images of emigration transcend to the outside world and onto the canvas.

Clayton Schiff

November 28, 2022 - November 12, 2023

 

Clayton Schiff (b. 1987, New York, lives and works in New York)

Clayton Schiff gathers impressions of an unconscious that distorts, displaces, enlarges, and compresses experiences accumulated while awake. His haunting iconography simultaneously evokes alienation with fantastical creatures and strange landscapes that have a subtlety and lightness that is playful and even humorous.

Jo Messer

November 28, 2022 - November 12, 2023

 

Jo Messer (b. 1991, Los Angeles, lives and works in New York)

Jo Messer’s paintings push the tradition of classic nude portraiture to explore the many potentials of the genre, from the erotic to the whimsical. Her chromatic, almost abstract figures of women extend beyond the borders of the canvas, offering new perspectives on sexuality and the human body.

Jared McGriff

November 28, 2022 - November 12, 2023

 

Jared McGriff (b. 1977, Los Angeles, lives and works in Miami)

The paintings of Miami-based Jared McGriff blend together the artist’s present with real or imagined glimpses into his family history. Through dream-like depictions, McGriff captures fragmented, distorted memories of previous generation’s migration from the rural south, reflecting on how the past continues to shape contemporary identity and experience.

Doron Langberg

November 28, 2022 - November 12, 2023

 

Doron Langberg (b. 1985, Israel, lives and works in New York)

Representing a new generation of figurative painters, Doron Langberg creates luminous, vibrant, and often large-scale works that hinge on a sense of intimacy. Depicting himself, his family, friends, and lovers, Langberg’s paintings celebrate the physicality of touch—in subject matter and process—a closeness that engages with new dialogues around queer sensuality and sexuality.

Patricia Ayres

November 28, 2022 - November 12, 2023

 

Patricia Ayres (b. 1975, New York, lives and works in New York)

Patricia Ayres’ practice relates to stories of isolation, separation, and confinement. Analyzing the mechanisms of physical and psychological control, Ayres creates anthropomorphic, totemic sculptures that are wrapped with strips of elastic, liquid latex, padding, and other materials, and incorporate techniques that draw on the artist’s background in fashion design.

Alexandre Diop: Jooba Jubba, l’Art du Defi, the Art of Challenge
2022 Artist-in-Residence

November 28, 2022 - November 12, 2023

 

Based in Vienna, Franco-Senegalese artist Alexandre Diop (b. 1995, Paris) uses discarded objects to create work that raises questions pertaining to sociopolitical, cultural and gender issues. Drawing inspiration from his European and African roots, he explores the legacies of colonialism and diaspora while tackling universal themes of ancestry, suffering, and historical violence. For his exhibition at the Rubell Museum, on view November 28, 2022 through November 12, 2023, Diop will present a selection of works created over the course of his 3-month residency. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue featuring an essay by scholar Mara Niang and a conversation between Diop and Hans Ulrich Obrist, alongside a selection of color photographs.

“In recent years, the Museum has continued to expand its programming to share both new acquisitions and highlights from the collection, as well as works developed by its artists-in-residence, a position most recently held by Alexandre Diop. This year’s presentations represent a continuation of our mission to spotlight a diverse mix of contemporary artists while encouraging public dialogue,” said Jason Rubell. “Works on view include both significant pieces by artists our family has engaged with over decades, as well as exciting work by artists we have recently interacted with during studio visits, and from whom we have commissioned bodies of work.”

04 Kennedy Yanko Studio view

Kennedy Yanko is a painter-sculptor and the Rubell Museum’s 2021 Artist-in-Residence. During her residency, Yanko scoured scrapyards in south Florida in search of readymade forms ripe for intervention. Her practice is often a mediation on material, which may be bent, poured, cut, welded or softened. Yanko creates thick velvety skins of paint, which she weaves through looming heaps of metal. The four abstract sculptures created during the residency – I am flowerI am water, and I am that –express elements of her lived experiences.

Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe, a Ghanan painter, is one of the Rubell Museum’s 2021 Artists-in-Residence. Quaicoe creates empowering lush portraits of his family and friends where color and texture functions as a unique language to represent the character of the subject. During his time at the Rubell Museum, Quaicoe explored the phenomenon of twin births through double portraiture, on view in this exhibition. Viewed as an auspicious occurrence, the birth of twins emphasizes the innate link between the corporal and spiritual realm in Ga culture. Other portraits made during the residency present a new perspective of the American cowboy trope. A massive triptych made during the residency present a new perspective of the American cowboy trope.
