Kohn Gallery Opening Night of Gonzalo Lebrija Exhibition
The Art House owner Guy Hector, along with artist Jeremy Kidd and Larry Gilbert, owner of ArtnowLA attended the Kohn Gallery's Exhibition for artist Gonzalo Lebrija.
The exhibition spans all three exhibition spaces in the gallery and comprises nine new paintings, a new sculptural work and a film installation being shown in the United States for the first time, concurrently on view at Museo Tamayo in Mexico City.
From the Kohn Gallery Website:
" Gonzalo Lebrija is one of the most celebrated artists working in Mexico today who has exhibited extensively throughout Europe, the United States and Latin America. Lebrija’s multi-media approach toward art making has become highly regarded in his ability to simultaneously employ painting, photography, film and sculpture, combined often into one exhibition or series of work. At Kohn Gallery, the artist will present a group of nine new paintings on linen, entitled Veladruas (Veils), while in Gallery 2, Lebrija will present a single, dramatic sculpture of a Bic lighter with an unceasing, eternal flame. Gallery 3 houses an installation of Lebrija’s film, Via Láctea, exploring the fluid shapes and forms of tobacco smoke while exposing underlying social and political relationships related to smoking. "
We are happy to share a few photos we took of the event.
