February 14, 2019 / March 31, 2019 – LOS ANGELES
This exhibition takes as its point of departure a condition so ubiquitous as to usually pass without comment. The messy, overwhelming, terrifying, frustrating, exhausting and joyful experience of being a father is evoked by artworks in diverse media by a group of male artists most of whom – though not all – are parents.
This is not an exhibition about patriarchy, but perhaps its opposite: an exploration of the sensations of failure, fear, inadequacy, care, and devotion that commonly accompany fatherhood.
The artist featured in “Fatherhood” are Dan Basen, Peter Linde Busk, Scott Campbell, Philip Diggle, Günther Förg, Rashid Johnson, Michael Kagan, Mike Lee, Herman Menzel, Joel Mesler, Ryan Mosley, Reko Rennie, Kenny Scharf, Aaron Spangler, Alfie Sue, and Michael Williams.
