After After the Contemporary opens Saturday January 20th from 6 – 9 pm at Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles. I’m pleased to debut 120 new watercolor and acrylic paintings of Artforum ads that form a timeline of the Contemporary. The new paintings expand on the fictional retrospective look at the twenty-five-year period I developed for my 2017 solo exhibition at the Aldrich. The works are available in chronological order here or as a PDF catalog you can download here powhida-afterafterthecontemporary.
The exhibition also includes drawings that informed the Aldrich show from 2016 that were shown in Brussels, a print of my text-based timeline “The Contemporary in Context”, and three new sculptural Artforum watercolors on paper mounted on aluminum that were recently shown at Untitled in Miami.
