  3. devNgosha- Soze Gallery

    (review by Sammy Winston - Click image for full photo set)

    Los Angeles is awash in summertime psych vibes and wheelbarrows of shrooms, so the timing is ideal for the arrival of devNgosha, or Devin Liston and Gosha Levochkin. The pair of collaborators present the ebb and flow of existence as an outpouring of neon madness, twisting daydream surrealism into a reflection on the process of maturation.

    Liston presents the confusion of modern man with a semblance of rigidity, creating grotesque portraits that could serve as the propaganda posters of low-budget dystopian films. The mugshots of Saturday morning cartoons. Maturation presented in a most immature manner.

    Gosha, against a stark white background, offers creatures culled from murky Rorshach tests, cut open and bled of their hidden inner vibrancy. Color explodes from the folds of these playful monsters, lending the pieces an invigorating tension. One is left with the sense that there is a fantastic tale each of these creatures has comes forth to tell, if only one could bear to decipher it.

    Boethius once posited that life was a wheel, and glorified, if not rationalized, all of its wonderful rising and treacherous falling and the schizophrenic beauty of the two. devNgosha offer that same wheel as a carnival ride. And as such, one finds themselves both charmed and unsettled in a candy-coated landscape.

    Soze Gallery in Los Angeles  will be presenting these dual collections from September 12th until October  1st.

  14. Superchief Gallery was featured in Interview Magazine:

    "Included in Superchief’s impressive rolodex is Swoon, who deserves considerable praise for staying faithful to the young curators after her highly celebrated crashing of the Venice Biennial as well as her massively successful installation at the Brooklyn Museum.

    Like Swoon herself, Zipco and Dunleavy are extremely careful not to lose sight of their roots on the street. In fact, their move to L.A. seems to be less a detour or a simple change of scenery, and more of a conscious shedding of their recently garnered credibility as “serious curators” in New York City.

    Their shunning of this title is not to diminish their professionalism—the boys have proven themselves to be highly responsible editors and gallery directors, often times despite their best efforts (a section of their magazine is titled “Smoke Weed to This”)—but rather to celebrate why people make art to begin with; to have fun, to express the frustrations of everyday life, to process inner struggles with sexuality or addiction, and let us not forget, to fight the power.”

    And now, we take a moment to blush.

    Our full appreciation and respect to everyone who’s with us- its been love at first sight and our family is getting bigger on the daily.

  15. Lil Kool in Hong Kong last month! Superchief Gallery LA will be hosting Lil Kool in residency for October 2014 and presenting his first LA solo show!

    "Joyce invited Brooklyn-based artist Josh Maupin aka LilKool to launch its first project “Downtown America” with a series of hand-painted murals. Visitors to the space will get the chance to see him at work transforming the space with his signature cartoon style influenced by graffiti, music, fashion and the Internet.

    The artist will also be offering a selection of customized one-of-a-kind vintage clothing pieces, many of which have been sourced from Joyce’s various collections. For those in the area, the exhibition is open until May 30.”
