The NYC-based artist Ryan McGinness, known for his graphic-inspired art, is a super busy guy. He has every day scheduled until mid-2010 — just thinking about his numerous upcoming shows and books, all due out by year's end, leaves us exhausted. (Click images for detail; see gallery details after the jump.)
Last week, McGinness opened a solo show in Milan, "A Shadow Feeling of Loss," at Paolo Curti & Annamaria Gambuzzi & Co. and his first show in Toronto, "Aesthetic Comfort" at Artcore/Fabrice Marcolini, which includes his new work that will be shown in black light. Then parts of that show including the fluorescent seen in black light move to the Cincinnati Art Museum 25 October 2008 for an expanded-upon version of "Aesthetic Comfort."
Then toward the end of November, McGinness will have a show simultaneously shown in Hong Kong and Seoul, âNo Sin/No Futureâ at CAIS Gallery.
You may not be able to get to any of these great shows, but you can get a piece of the action, as two Ryan McGinness books are being produced in conjunction with the shows. One is a limited edition soft cover artist book that goes with his Aesthetic Comfort exhibitions printed in fluorescent orange, yellow, pink, and green. The other is a collection of snapshots, sketches, notes, and scans that is a compendium to the No Sin/No Future at CAIS Galleries in Seoul and Hong Kong.
