Opening Tonight: Barry McGee @ Prism, LA

May 11, 2012

Barry McGee will make a return visit to show at Prism Gallery in Los Angeles tonight, May 11, 2012, with a large portion of work created at the gallery itself. In 2009, McGee held an exhibition for the gallery's inaugural exhibition, titled MindTheGap. Since then, the gallery has gone on to show many renowned international artists including David LaChapelle, Os Gemeos, Ryan McGinness, Andy Warhol, Araki, and a bunch more. This one should garner a ton of attention. We are headed over to check out the works tonight...

As Prism notes, "In his second exhibition at the gallery, McGee integrates his visual language, with its striking geometric compositions, color fields and recurring characters into a site-responsive installation that converts the gallery into a dynamic and vibrant space. Viewers are immersed in purposeful chaos reflected in McGee’s drawings, paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs."

It’s a big year for McGee, following the Prism show the artist will holding a retrospective at the UC-Berkeley Art Museum.
