Gagosian will host a book signing with Dan Colen to celebrate the publication of High Noon, an exhibition catalogue of his Desert Paintings (2015–19), exhibited at Gagosian, Beverly Hills, in 2018. These large-scale paintings are lush yet schematic interpretations of the arid landscapes from Chuck Jones’s animated shorts featuring Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. The volume also documents two new performances, At Least They Died Together and Carry On Cowboy (both 2018). To attend the free event, RSVP to colenrsvp@gagosian.com.

Exhibition

Abstract/Not Abstract

December 6–10, 2017
Moore Building, Miami

On the occasion of Art Basel Miami Beach 2017, Gagosian and Jeffrey Deitch are pleased to present Abstract/Not Abstract, their third collaboration at the Moore Building in the Miami Design District. One of the great innovations of modernism, abstract painting continues to inspire and challenge artists. To make a fresh abstraction today following all the remarkable achievements of the School of Paris and the New York School is a daunting proposition. Yet through the use of innovative approaches, techniques, and technologies, this generation of artists is creating complex and astonishing new work that revitalizes the abstract tradition. Abstract/Not Abstract will include work by contemporary artists who redefine abstraction for our time.

Performance

Dan Colen
Livin’ and Dyin’

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 11:30am
Newport Street Gallery, London
www.newportstreetgallery.com

In this ninety-minute walking performance piece, Dan Colen is accompanied by Wile E. Coyote, Roger Rabbit, and the Kool-Aid Man. The script Colen reads is built from every pat cliché and aphorism one could think of, as well as several soaring, inspirational movie speeches. As a whole the piece overlays the human condition with human fantasy and folly (and vice versa) until it becomes confusing–what is true and what is phony.
