M+B is pleased to present "Soundtrack," Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will run from May 19 through June 23, 2018, with an opening reception on Saturday, May 19 from 6 to 8 pm. You may remember, we interviewed Nathaniel a few months back in a print feature, where he gave us a wonderful sentiment: "Now I have the opportunity to be remembered and never forgotten." Another major show in Los Angeles, and NMQ is definitely on a fantastic career trajectory.
Soundtrack presents a group of eleven new works in which music is a key connector. In its ability to act as a powerful agent of emotion and memory, each song works in tandem with an image to capture the joys, agonies, highs and lows of life. From Al Green’s soulful and intimate “Simply Beautiful” to Kendrick Lamar’s compelling storytelling in “Duckworth” and the profoundly heartfelt “A Song For You” by Donny Hathaway, each song pairs with moments in the artist’s life and amplifies the rich emotional landscapes found in his works.
