Perry Rubenstein Gallery announces Mike Kelley: Deodorized Central Mass with Satellites, the second autumn exhibition in the new Los Angeles gallery. One of Kelley’s most significant works, this room-sized installation has never before been exhibited in Los Angeles.Early in his career, Kelley began incorporating found thrift-store stuffed animals and household cleaning products into large installations which challenged viewers with contrasting feelings of delight and repulsion, empathy and confusion. Consisting of a thirteen-part hanging plush sculpture surrounded by slick, geometric wall reliefs which fill the room with a subtle chemical pine-scent, Deodorized Central Mass with Satellitesembodies. the fullest and most dynamic iteration of this significant component of the artist’s practice. Mike Kelley (1954 – 2012), who committed suicide this year, was a central figure and beloved colleague and mentor in Los Angeles’ vibrant visual art community for decades. Mike Kelley: Deodorized Central Mass with Satellites will be on view from November 2 to December 15, 2012 at Perry Rubenstein Gallery, 1215 N. Highland Avenue, Los Angeles.
Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan (b.1960) is known as the art world’s agent provocateur, using what seem to be stunts to address universal themes around the nature of dogma, power and death. A new solo display, currently on view at Whitechapel Gallery in London, includes one of his earliest works – a miniature family kitchen featuring a squirrel that has committed suicide. Bidibidobidiboo (1996), after the fairy godmother’s song in Disney’s Cinderella, encapsulates Cattelan’s acerbic wit and his melancholic worldview. This exhibition is a part of a series of exhibitions presenting the Collection Sandretto Re Rebaudengo from Turin. The exhibition opened yesterday and is on view until December 2, 2012, at Whitechapel Gallery, 77-82 Whitechapel High Street, London.
