Jason Rhoades: Installations, 1994-2006
Photograph: Michael Juliano

Jason Rhoades grew up in a small town in the foothills outside of Sacramento—an equivalent of L.A.'s heartland. But Rhoades would go on to study in Oakland, San Francisco and L.A. That ideological division would inform his envelope-pushing installations, which often exuberantly approached politics, race, nationality, commerce, sex and gender through the use of neon signs, mechanical parts and readymade objects. Hauser Wirth & Schimmel has collected six such installations from the late artist in his first comprehensive L.A. retrospective. Rhoades would collect readymade objects and mechanical parts, and often work with neon.

 

 

Just a quick note: Some subject matter in the exhibition may not be appropriate for children, though not any more so than your typical contemporary art museum.

This gallery provides a wonderful setting to enjoy artwork in a spread out way. The Jason Rhoades retrospective consistes of at least 4-5 galleries with his neon and/or mechanical large scale sculptures and installations. Despite being crowded, the scale of each room allows for leisurely browsing though the eyebrow raising installatin.
