Broad City may boast a unique New York style of humor, but artist Mike Perry, whose work has become closely associated with the show’s Brooklyn hipster aesthetic, will soon inaugurate a new gallery space in Los Angeles.
Garis & Hahn, formerly located at 263 Bowery in New York, is preparing to kick off their new West Coast space in Los Angeles’ downtown arts district with a solo show of Perry’s work. A series of new sculptures titled Inner Thoughts will be showcased alongside a selection of the artist’s vibrant paintings.
“Something about [Perry’s] work seems imbued with an inherently ‘California’ quality to it,” co-director Mary Garis told artnet News. The gallery stated that Perry’s work is dynamic, and his upcoming exhibition will showcase all of his best-known qualities: “un-naturalistic colors, intricately distorted compositions and a hand-drawn aesthetic,” according to a statement.
In an interview with Flaunt, Garis communicated her excitement to be a part of the art scene in Los Angeles, which “is increasingly getting its due credit as a true center to rival other major art cities like New York.”
The unveiling of Perry’s exhibition is part of an art initiative called Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, and will coincide with the premiere of Broad City’s fourth season on September 13.
Intoxicating Pollen Wiggling in a Moist Journey of Constantly Blooming Tides will be on view at Garis & Hahn’s new location at 1820 Industrial Street, Los Angeles CA 90021, from September 9 through October 21, 2017.
