Kenneth Anger at Sprüth Magers London February 19th, 2010 - March 27th, 2010
Posted 3/14/10
Sprüth Magers London presents an exhibition of the iconic pioneer of postmodern film Kenneth Anger; best known for his scathing chronicle of the plunge to destruction of glittering stars and also-rans in his notorious book Hollywood Babylon. Painted a calming mid-gray, the front gallery makes a projection room for Invocation of My Demon Brother 1969, with a great stop-start abstract soundtrack by Mick Jagger. A knife passes over the bare chest of a peroxide-blond boy, Bobby Beausoleil... [more]

With Moby-Dick, the Wattis presents the second of three shows rousting the spirits of great American literature. Although painted like a Nautica bedroom set with navy walls and white text, each room conjures the salty atmosphere of a heaving ship with alternately droning and ranting snippets from Orson Welles's recitation of Moby Dick. These elements (whale, walls, and Welles) attempt to interlace work from thirty-three international artists—no small feat. Of course, I don't envy the cu... [more]
