Art News: FACEMAKER Exhibition at Royal/T

18 Mar

On Thursday, April 14 2011, Royal/T a visually stunning 10,000-square-foot space in Culver City, known for its changing program of rotating curatorial art exhibits from top artists and gallerists around the world—debuts “FACEMAKER”, a new exhibition curated by Kathy Grayson of New York City’s The Hole that will be displayed through June 2011.

Featuring works from contemporary young artists including the title piece by Ben Jones, in addition to Dearraindrop, assume vivid astro focus, Tomoo Gokita, Barry McGee, Kenny Scharf, Eric Yahnker, Jane Moseley, Olaf Breuning, Carroll Dunham, KAWS, Ted Mineo, David Shrigley, Shepard Fairey, Eddie Martinez, Taylor McKimens and many many more, and the show will explore interpretations of the most universal element of human perception: the face.

“FACEMAKER” is a collaborative event featuring top young artists from across the United States, Japan, Greece, and Belgium who are creatively driven to find new ways to imagine a face, whether in painting, drawing, sculpture, or video. The exhibit explores the inherent tendency to see faces in all objects, which drives each artist to re-imagine the basic figure—whether idiosyncratic, fragmented, collaged, psychological, or geometric.
