Barry McGee special exhibit in San Francisco Barry McGee A special exhibition at our off-site space 1717 17th Street, San Francisco hours: Thursday - Saturday 11am -5pm April 14th - May 19th , 2012 Reception: April 14th from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m Barry McGee and Friends at 1717 17th Street, San Francisco CA Gallery Paule Anglim is pleased to announce a special exhibition by Barry McGee at the gallery’s off-site space at 1717 17th Street in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill district. Contemporary Arts Centre describes the community acknowledging its present and past: an installation featuring work by McGee and fellow invited artists. Moving easily across the boundaries of street art, historical High Art, private/anonymous art practices and museum-sanctioned collections, Barry McGee has created and collaborated on artworks appreciated by a broad audience. Acclaimed for his work as a graffiti artist and for his installations in galleries, museums and art festivals around the world, the artist crafts a language that resonates as a shared public experience as well as on a private intimate scale. Addressing social concerns of urban life, yet elaborating a unique personal style, McGee’s works focus on a shared humanity, one painstakingly hand-detailed, finely-painted image at a time. McGee’s work has been shown widely in the San Francisco community and internationally, including The Venice Biennale (2001) and the Biennale de Lyon (2009-2010,) the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA Los Angeles, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the BALTIC Centre in England and the Watari-um Museum in Tokyo. A retrospective exhibition of his work will be presented at the Berkeley Art Museum opening August 2012. A reception for McGee & the artists will be held Saturday, April 14th from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. Please visit the gallery’s website at www.gallerypauleanglim.com
