Galerie Perrotin is pleased to present The Other Side, Barry McGee’s first exhibition with the gallery.
Featuring a selection of new works, ephemera, and archival materials from the San Francisco-based artist, The Other Side showcases McGee’s ever-evolving, often humorous, imagery through his characteristic depictions of varied environments and social vernaculars. The show will also mark the artist’s first solo exhibition in the region, where part of his heritage lies. McGee, who is American-born, is of partial Chinese descent.
Known for creating immersive environments, McGee adopts a fluid and improvisational approach to his installations; each is unique to the architecture of its exhibition space. By incorporating an eclectic selection of media—painted surfboards, hand-thrown ceramics, obsolete television sets—and found objects sourced during his stay in Hong Kong, McGee demonstrates his organic and often unpredictable process of art making. The spontaneity of The Other Side is evocative of the artist’s ongoing dialogue with the neighborhoods in which he resides and his sustained interest in the distinctions between public and private spaces. The result is an inclusive experience that gives insight into McGee’s worldview and his artistic trajectory.
