Friends and family of the late artist Mike Kelley have organized a 24-hour screening of his videos this weekend at Los Angeles’s Farley Building. Set to run from 9 p.m. Saturday to 9 p.m. Sunday, the exhibition is titled “For the Love of Mike.”
Not going to be in L.A. this weekend? Chelsea’s Nyehaus gallery has extended its “Hoodwinked” show through the end of the month, which features great early work by Richard Prince and Kelley. Beginning next month, the latter’s work will be on view in the Whitney Biennial.
The L.A. screenings are being organized with assistance from the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, the Hammer Museum, Gagosian (the artist’s gallery) and West of Rome (the nonprofit outfit run by his old friend, the art dealer Emi Fontana).
For those seeking instant gratification, Ubuweb also has a few of his works available for your viewing pleasure.
