Ryan Taber will be the first artist featured in the Torrance Art Museum’s “Sunrise Series,” an annual solo exhibition featuring a unique emerging artist from the SoCal area (though international artists may be included on occasion).
Taking over the main gallery of the museum, Ryan has created a new body of work specifically for the museum, which will serve as his second museum solo exhibition.
Surely not to be missed, the opening reception will take place Saturday, March 6, from 6-9pm. The exhibition will be on view from March 6 – April 17, 2010.
MMG previously reported that Ryan Taber and his fellow LMCC project participants were the subject of many a writer’s pontifications, but it would seem they are also the target of many a vandal’s tags.
ArtInfo and Flavorpill are the first to report on the details from the LentSpace site. Luckily, Taber has kept his trademark cool during the incident, saying “I’m not worried at all about the sentiment.”
Let’s try to keep our criticisms to the blogosphere, shall we?
Earlier, we reported that Ryan Taber was to participate in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s (LMCC) public arts project, and now we’re thrilled to share its success!
Ryan earned mentions in both the New York Times and The L Magazine for his “Pompey’s Folly,” which you can read about by clicking on the links above.
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) will be transforming an entire city block into a public art space for contemporary works starting September 18, 2009. Dubbed LentSpace, the project will be located in a downtown New York City block between Canal, Varick, Grand and Sullivan Streets.
The inaugural visual arts exhibition, entitled Points & Lines, is on view through the end of 2009, and features MMG’s Ryan Taber alongside Oliver Babin, Olga Chernysheva, Eli Hansen and Oscar Tuazon, Graham Hudson, Tobias Putrih and Corban Walker. For more information, visit the LMCC’s website.
