Please join UBS and curator Mary Aboujaoude of Curio Projects for an exhibition of new work by James Perkins, on view at Ace Gallery in Beverly Hills.


James Perkins lives and works in New York City. He received a B.A. from Yale University and a master's degree from SVA School of Visual Arts. Through his paintings, sculptures, performances, films and photographs, Perkins explores the perceptions and emotions of money and value via society's gestures of success and failure.

 

The works in his collection, titled Speculation, reflect both the artist's commitment to the inquiry of perception while admitting to his own participation and lack of immunity. Refusing to serve as detached commentator, the artist shines a spotlight on his own biases, excesses, triumphs and failures by including his own garments from his time spent on Wall Street in the works.

On view through April
Ace Gallery
9430 Wilshire Boulevard
Beverly Hills, CA

 

*VIP by invitation only.

Please join curator Mary Aboujaoude of Curio Projects for an exhibition of new public work by French artist David Mesguich. Mesguich will be showcasing site specific public art installations in Dallas, Texas in the Spring. 

 

In a obsessional way David travels cities and develops an atypical mapping by focusing his interest for all which,in those spaces of passage separates and divides up. For more than 10 years it's by the addicting exercise of graffiti that he investigated the subject. Today, it's by drawing and by monumental installations in-situ that he re-appropriates some parcels of those aseptic territories.

Jeunesse

Né à Bordeaux, Hugo Cesto arrive sur Orléans en CE1 après un bref passage à Poitiers. C'est donc dans la cité johannique qu'Hugo effectue ses premières armes les bombes de peinture à la main. Il a alors 13 ans, et il va progressivement commencer le dessin, et le pochoir.

Sa scolarité est un peu chaotique. Il fréquente en effet plusieurs établissements avant de partir de pension chez les jésuites et d’obtenir son bac L. Il arrive ensuite à Paris à la Chambre syndicale de la couture parisienne (école créée par Yves Saint-Laurent). « Une très bonne école mais je n'aimais pas du tout ce milieu. », explique Hugo qui ne restera donc pas bien longtemps sur les bancs de l'école.

 

Du graffiti vandale aux galeries d'art

A 19 ans, il commence donc à graffer, « à très haute dose ». Sa spécialité ? Réaliser un tag à partir d'un seul trait de peinture. « J'ai été le premier à vraiment faire ça. Deux ou trois mecs l'ont fait avant moi, mais j'ai vraiment développé cette technique appelée graffiti vandale ». Le centre de Paris devient son terrain de jeu préféré. « Ma stratégie était de taguer à proximité des galeries d'art. », raconte le jeune artiste. Hugo Cesto réalise alors une soixantaine de dessins par soirées parfois plus. Toujours le même dessin, une tête de mort devenue « sa signature ». Rapidement, les frères Moretti, sont séduits. Moretti & Moretti, galerie de street-art de grande renommée, accueille donc deux de ses toiles. Deux, puis bientôt quatre, puis dix, puis vingt-cinq.
