Happily Until Their Deaths: Ryan Travis Christian, David Jien, Adrienne Kammerer, Toshio Saeki @ Narwhal Projects, TorontoJuxtapoz // Thursday, October 22, 2015
We are really excited about this one: Ryan Travis Christian, David Jien, Toshio Saeki, and Adrienne Kammerer are all in a fantastic looking show, "Happily Until Their Deaths," opening at Narwhal Projects in Toronto on October 20. The show is based around what curator Kristin Weckworth notes as “Happily Until Their Deaths” being once a popular concluding pronouncement to fairy tales in the 1600s. This eventually softened into the more familiar “happily ever after”.

As we prepare a larger look at Ryan Travis Christian's work in the print magazine, the Chicago-based artist just opened a new solo exhibition, The Second Banana, at Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco. We think of Christian's work as a psychedelic trip animated by an artist in the 1930s. It just has that vintage feel to it. Maybe that is why we like it so much.
