Barry McGee’s latest show, simply titled New Work, opened this week at Stuart Shave/Modern Art in London. While not the craziest show Barry McGee has ever done, pretty much everyone I spoke with came away thinking this show is one of the best things they’ve seen recently (except for maybe the Miro show at Tate Modern, apparently that’s going to be a difficult one to top). As usual, McGee straddled the worlds of graffiti and fine art, high-brow and low-brow, concept and aesthetics.
Barry McGee’s first exhibition in London in 6 years opens this Thursday evening at Stuart Shave/Modern Art. Do. Not. Miss. This. Show. The private view is Thursday from 6-8pm, and the show will be open through August 13th. We’ve got no idea what to expect, but it’s McGee, so it’s fair to expect something pretty damn interesting. His Street installation with Steve Powers and Todd James is a definite highlight of Art in the Streets right now at MOCA in LA. See you there. And if you’re not in London, I plan to take plenty of photos so check back later this week for those.
