Welcome to UnBeige ♥ Ryan McGinness week! Ryan just (finally) launched his official web site (created with the help of web design firm d/construct, the same firm that does the site for my gallery).
The site has lots of Ryan goodness all in one place:research resources has .pdfs of magazine interviews, publications is an index of all the books he’s published (along with several images of the pages from each book), selected works has images of his work dating back to 1994.
Ryan is insanely busy as always. He’s got a show up in Paris and is hard at work on a new book, Installationview for Rizzoli. Installationview currently exists as a wall full of notebook papers tacked up ever so neatly into a perfect grid on his studio wall. Ryan’s pushing towards making more than a catolog of his recent work – it includes sketches, essays and photographs of Ryan at work in his studio. From the Rizzoli promotional piece for the book:
Somewhere between an artist’s book and a catalogue, Installationview provides insight into the works and process of artist Ryan McGinness. The book is a dense collection of new paintings, works on paper, installations, sketches and notes, inspiration snapshots, and pieces made specifically for its pages.
This week we’ll feature a UnBeige ♥ Ryan McGinness item once a day. I’ll have some good pictures, perhaps an inside scoop or two and more in-depth information about Ryan’s current projects. So, stay tuned.
