December 1–4, 2011


The Michael Kohn Gallery is pleased to present historical paintings, collage, and sculpture from the 1960’s, 1970’s, and 1980’s by artists from California. Historical paintings by Joe Goode, Wallace Berman, and Bruce Conner will be shown in the booth to underscore California’s unique take on Light and Space, sculpture, painting, and Pop art.  A second, but equally compelling focus for the booth showcases new work by California Pop Surrealists, Camille Rose Garcia and Mark Ryden.  A beautiful, large-scale painting by Kohn’s newest edition to the roster, Rosa Loy, will also be unveiled at the fair.  Rosa’s first solo exhibition with the gallery will be in January 2012. Finally, new work by Simmons & Burke and Ryan McGinness will be present, demonstrating exciting contemporary collage practices.

November 30–December 4, 2011

With his silent-loop installation LOOKING FOR MUSHROOMS seminal artist and filmmaker Bruce Conner diverged from his signature palette of film assemblage and apocalyptic imagery to create a colorful, explosive expedition through San Francisco and rural Mexico in search of magic mushrooms and transcendent illumination. Conner collected and composed thousands of saturated single-frame images, elegantly layered with in-camera multiple exposures. LOOKING FOR MUSHROOMS premiered at Conner’s first solo exhibition at the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University in 1965, then later became part of his moving image light shows with the North American Alchemical Light Company for Family Dog at the Avalon Ballroom, providing visual accompaniment for music legends such as The Doors, Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and Jefferson Airplane.
