Matthew Marks is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Robert Gober, the next exhibition in his galleries at 1062 North Orange Grove and 7818 Santa Monica Boulevard. Robert Gober: Sculpture Drawings Studies will be the artist’s first one-person exhibition of new work in four years, and his first one-person show in Los Angeles in fifteen years.
Gober has produced three large sculptures, several smaller sculptures, and a group of works on paper for this exhibition. All of them will be exhibited here for the first time.
A selection of related earlier works will also be included.
Robert Gober began exhibiting his work publicly in 1979. Since that time he has had numerous exhibitions, both in this country and abroad. His work has been the subject of one-person museum exhibitions at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume, Paris (1991), the Dia Center for the Arts, New York (1992), The Serpentine Gallery, London (1993), the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1997), and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (1999), among others. He represented the United States at the 2001 Venice Biennale. In 2007, the Schaulager in Basel, Switzerland organized a comprehensive overview of his work.
Robert Gober: Sculpture Drawings Studies will be on view from January 19 through April 6, 2013, Tuesday through Saturday, from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. at 1062 North Orange Grove and 7818 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles.
