The Energy That is All Around @SFAI
    Friday, 27 September 2013 /// Written by Trippe

The Energy That is All Around (thru Dec 14th) at the San Fracisco Art Institute's Walter and McBean Galleries is hands-down the best gallery show I've seen in a while. Showing the work of Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, and Ruby Neri, the show commemorates these Mission School artsits after gaining two decades of recognition not only in the Bay Area, but worldwide. The works alone are obviously phenomenal, but the way in which the gallery intertwined them with each other brought a sense of balance and community that speaks to more than the geographical proximity which links these artists.

The night started with a small and mature crowd but quickly snowballed when students and the public were allowed in. Several rock bands played on the patio as the beer and wine flowed, and it was so clear that we could see the new Bay Bridge sparkling in the distance. It was exciting. Students could not only gather with each other, but look at work of SFAI alumni who have clearly made an impact on both the local and international artworlds. Hopefully, one or two of them will return in twenty years with their impactful work, continuing this energetic evolution.

"ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND" - Great Show Not to be Missed at SFAI Opening Sept 12th
    Friday, 30 August 2013 /// Written by Trippe

SAN FRANCISCO --- Mark your calendars, people, as the show ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND featuring works by Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, and Ruby Neri is one not to be missed which opens Wednesday, Sept 12th at SFAI.

ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND features early and formative work by five artists—Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, and Ruby Neri—who began their careers in the early 1990s in San Francisco's Mission District and, by the early aughts, had been identified and celebrated as key members of the so-called Mission School.

REVIEW: BARRY MCGEE @ ICA BOSTON
    Tuesday, 16 April 2013 /// Written by Van Edwards

Barry McGee reigns as one of the most legitimate artists of his genre and his time. While some of his "graffiti" peers have spent 20 years cashing in at every corner possible, he has quietly created an amazing body of work. He's an absurdly talented artist that assembles work and exhibitions that don’t just appeal to the eye; they’re a sensory overload. Entering a show by Barry is an immersive event that leaves you with a feeling of excitement and wonder. ~continue reading

 

Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, & Laurie Reid @CCSF
    Tuesday, 26 February 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, and Laurie Reid returned to their alma mater, City College of San Francisco, to open an unassuming art show and interact with students and the community.

After seeing McGee's Berkeley Art Museum exhibition last fall, this show was not what I was expecting, but it was perfect. Instead of a large-scale museum installation, the works were hung haphazardly on pins, just like any other student show which would take place in this gallery. A small crowd flowed into the gallery and then out into the hallway where they served cookies and popcorn, and where legends like McGee could look at student work hung in display cases. The artists were present, adding to the inclusive environment, and many students passed by on their way to class without realizing that there were stars in their halls. It was a great little show, and was probably highly encouraging to students who are just starting their art careers. It was as if the artists took a step back to show just how far they have come and, maybe, just how far they can go next.

Is Barry McGee A Graffiti Art Sellout?
    Friday, 21 September 2012 /// Written by Trippe


Barry McGee at Prism LA May 2012

Invited to exhibit in one of New York's premier galleries a dozen years ago, Barry McGee responded by upending several trucks. He then bombed the wreckage with spraypaint and made it the centerpiece of an installation that confronted art collectors with an ersatz urban ghetto mimicking those he ordinarily vandalized on the downlow. One of the most memorable exhibitions in the 14-year history of Deitch Projects, the spectacle became the basis of McGee's nearly unparalleled popularity, culminating in his current midcareer retrospective at the Berkeley Art Museum. Through it all, he's struggled to reconcile mainstream appeal with his stated aim "to carry on pissing people off". It's been a losing battle. His furiously overturned trucks are now crowd-pleasers. ~read on @Forbes

Barry McGee special exhibit in San Francisco, Saturday
    Friday, 13 April 2012 /// Written by Trippe

This just in from Mickey Reyes' Instagram via Paule Anglim.

A special exhibition at our off-site space 1717 17th Street, San Francisco hours: Thursday - Saturday 11am -5pm April 14th - May 19th , 2012
Reception: April 14th from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m

San Francisco CA Gallery Paule Anglim is pleased to announce a special exhibition by Barry McGee at the gallery's off-site space at 1717 17th Street in San Francisco's Potrero Hill district. Contemporary Arts Centre describes the community acknowledging its present and past: an installation featuring work by McGee and fellow invited artists.


Moving easily across the boundaries of street art, historical High Art, private/anonymous art practices and museum-sanctioned collections, Barry McGee has created and collaborated on artworks appreciated by a broad audience. Acclaimed for his work as a graffiti artist and for his installations in galleries, museums and art festivals around the world, the artist crafts a language that resonates as a shared public experience as well as on a private intimate scale. Addressing social concerns of urban life, yet elaborating a unique personal style, McGee's works focus on a shared humanity, one painstakingly hand-detailed, finely-painted image at a time. McGee's work has been shown widely in the San Francisco community and internationally, including The Venice Biennale (2001) and the Biennale de Lyon (2009-2010,) the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA Los Angeles, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the BALTIC Centre in England and the Watari-um Museum in Tokyo. A retrospective exhibition of his work will be presented at the Berkeley Art Museum opening August 2012.

A reception for McGee & the artists will be held Saturday, April 14th from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. Please visit the gallery's website at www.gallerypauleanglim.com
