A brilliant showcase of Australian designer Marc Newson’s reinterpreted designs for different modes of transportation. Newson’s fluid aesthetics of design and the buoyant functionality of the machines stirs a desire for a James Bond-esque Mediterranean vacation. Advertisements
Dan Colen is quoted as saying that this current show at Gagosian is about “failure and potential, accident and intention, most minute and most infinite.” Colen creates a transitionary space using an inverted skateboard half-pipe, and installation of knocked over customized Harley Davidson motorcycles, and massive canvases with abstract patterns painted with chewing gum. A self-reflective self-indulgent show.
