“Call and Response” at Gavin Brown’s enterprise
Opens Saturday 24th January 2015, 6-8pm
Featuring more than sixty artists, a number rumoured to be increasing by the day, Gavin Brown has amassed this collection for an exhibition that presents considerable bang for buck. Uri Aran is one of our highlights, his contemporary and minimalist sketches juxtaposed with photography making for fascinating viewing.

“Ho” Ryder Ripps at Postmasters Gallery
Opens Saturday 24th January 2015, 5.30-8pm
Ryder Ripps’ first solo exhibition features large scale oil paintings, portraits far removed but derived from the Instagram of model Adrianne Ho. Ripps transforms posed fashion photographs into expressive and distorted portraits. Ripps parodies techniques used in the fashion industry, stretching and altering to expose these methods for what they really are, and what they really create. We highly recommend Ripps innovative show and flawless painting.

“Joker’s Solitaire” Z Behl at Kai Matsumiya

We wish we had friends like this… Z Behl has created a giant pack of playing cards featuring nude portraits of male friends, and even two particularly revealing self-portraits on the Joker cards. These cards will be displayed on the customary green felt in “pairs”, “three of a kind”, and “full house” sets. An interactive experience, visitors will be encouraged to play with versions of her cards, and watch her film “Joker’s Solitaire” which depicts her dressed as the joker playing solitaire. Five hundred limited edition decks of cards will be available on request.
