Purple Art

[July 9 2024]

“Bruts” Exhibition curated by Rashid Johnson at David Kordansky Gallery Los Angeles, on view until August 24th

This exhibition features paintings and sculptures by fifteen artists whose work emerges through feats of physical, psychological, spiritual, and emotional strength. Many of the works on view were created in ways that highlight the roughness of the artist’s interaction with their materials, resulting in aggressively textured surfaces and a lack of smoothness. Johnson aims to generate unexpected correspondences that cannot be reduced to mere visual or biographical affinities, showcasing both abstract and figurative works.
