Wes Lang’s one night only show at the Chateau Marmont this thursday, hollywood

OHWOW will present a one night exhibition entitled Sittin’ on a Rainbow at the Chateau Marmont of artist Wes Lang’s recently completed series on the infamous hotel’s stationary. With the sprit of Martin Kippenberger
as his starting point, Lang renders a world of innocence, sex, and
loss. Continuing on from previous bodies of works, Lang confronts
viewers with relatable imagery and symbols such as skulls and nude
women expressing his sense of nostalgia. Text Juliana Balestin and Whiter Shade of Pale (2011), acrylic on paper by Wes Lang

Sittin’ on a Rainbow by Wes Lang on Thursday 23 at 8pm at The Chateau Marmont, Penthouse 6, 8221 Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood.
