On show now: Barry McGee at Modern Art in London
New Work, by Barry McGee.
1 July – 13 August
Modern Art is delighted to announce an exhibition of new work by Barry McGee. This is McGee’s third solo show with Modern Art, and his first exhibition in London for six years.
Barry McGee’s style and visual language has an instantly recognisable character and unique voice. His work draws its structures and graphic impact from the influences of tagging, ‘Mission School’ abstraction, and vandalism, meeting a formal and installational logic that draws on the conventions of contemporary painting and sculpture. The core of McGee’s practice is the expressive immediacy and spirit of independence that is rooted in the culture and histories of socially motivated intervention in the public realm.
