Ratio 3 is pleased to present Everything Butt, an exhibition of new work by Petra Mrzyk and Jean-François Moriceau. Taking its title from a simple, irreverent play on words, Everything Butt is an immersive exhibition of Mrzyk & Moriceau's unique aesthetic of wit and absurdity.As you have probably seen on our Instagram, we love the work of Mrzyk & Moriceau, who make some of the most clever and funny drawings that fit that medium perfectly.

Well, you got 3 days to check this one out if you are in Northern California. Ryan McGinley has returned to Ratio 3 in San Francisco for one of our favorite installations of the year, Yearbook, featuring an entire site-specific, immersive installation of McGinley's color portraits of... well, a ton of naked men and women who would have done well at the Arcade Fire show in Brooklyn this past weekend. To be honest, all together, in all this color, the installation is quite stunning, and you have until October 26th to see it.

As we like to treat most major art fairs, we love just taking a quiet walkthrough all the different booths, halls, and exhibition spaces and just soak it all in. Of course, The Armory Show was the main event in NYC this past weekend, and with strong showings from Kaikai Kiki, V1, and then the entire Nordic Countries fair, here is our walkthrough recap of the entire fair.

We kept the buzzing pace yesterday as we headed up north to check out the NADA Art Fair, which was a fair we really looked forward to checking out. Ratio 3, The Hole, Ambach + Rice, and Creative Growth were just some of the booths we wanted to make sure we caught.

We caught the new Mrzyk & Moriceau solo show, The Man With the Golden Gun, at Ratio 3 in San Francisco right before it came down last week, but the show has some many great pen and ink drawings that we compiled our favorites here. Wit to perfection. More after the jump . . .
