MILK GALLERY UNDERGROUND LA AT KANA MANGLAPUS PROJECTS
Milk Gallery has teamed up with Kana Manglapus Projects to bring MGU to the west coast and introduce the next generation of photographic talent to their burgeoning art scene. This was a natural collaboration as Manglapus has been a leader in developing new talent and several of her photographers were exhibited at MGU Spring 2011 in New York City earlier this year.
The show features pieces from 60 artists who exhibited at Milk Gallery in New York City, including John Currin muse and Marc Jacobs model Coco Young, whose documentary style is rooted in observing the nuances of fellow models “off duty” and Ryan McGinley protégé Sandy Kim, a “confessional photographer” whose risqué photos of the youth scene are both hardcore and hauntingly beautiful.
In addition to these 60 artists, the current exhibition will feature 7 new Los Angeles based photographers who were hand selected by Manglapus to join the MGU movement and Milk's commitment to nurture the next generation of talent: David Bortulucci, Ethan Lovell, Jun Won Yoh, Kristen Shaw, Mike Rosenthal, Rocco Mediate, and Xela Mandel.
