Regen Projects is pleased to present Tomorrow’s Man 4, a group exhibition curated by Jack Pierson, featuring ten emerging and established artists based in Los Angeles and its environs.
The concept for the exhibition comes out of Pierson’s ongoing celebrated artist book, Tomorrow’s Man, inspired by the famous bodybuilding magazine from the 1950s and ‘60s. The collaboration began when Bywater Bros Editions approached Pierson about publishing a monograph on his work. In response, Pierson suggested a new form of publication that combined his work with that of his contemporaries, many of whom had never before been exhibited in galleries. Adopting the layered, collage-like aesthetic of the mid-century magazine, the book presents stunning combinations of color, form, and texture.
Presented in conjunction with the release of the fourth volume in the series, the exhibition brings together a selection of paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures by artists featured in the publication; Brian Calvin, Cali DeWitt, Shari Elf, Trevor Hernandez, Liz Larner, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Lily Stockman, Richard Tinkler, John Tottenham, and Evan Whale.
“This exhibition is devoted to West Coast artists. I hope it tells a West Coast kind of story,” said Pierson.
An opening reception will be held on Saturday, November 11, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
