'#metadata' features new paintings, sculptures, and installations by Ryan McGinness.
The paintings depict various scenes from the studio, including tools, sketches, paint containers, materials typical of the studio, and finished paintings. The sculptures take the tools of production as well as studio detritus out of the paintings and into the viewer’s personal space. The installations bring the paintings and the objectified references to the production of those paintings together into site-specific environments.
Included are installation views from McGinness’s exhibitions at Deitch Projects in New York, Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles, Quint Gallery in San Diego, La Casa Encendida in Madrid, Ron Mandos Gallery in Amsterdam, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and the Cranbrook Art Museum in Michigan.
