For Those About To Rock. Jennifer Coates: UPDATED LIKE A MUTHAFUCKA.
For those about to rock. Fire! We. Salute. You!
Jennifer Coates at Kinz, Tillou and Feigen, y'all. Opening tonight, like a big beautiful hole in the wall of your world into another. You know how I feel. And it looks like she's gone even further out with this one. Oh, hell yeah.
UPDATE: OK. So. Like I said, I'm a big fan of Jennifer Coates work. I had a feeling from the first exhibition .jpeg that she had roughed up her template for this show. And damn, I was sooooooo right. This show isn't just a knockout, it's a serious leap forward for Coates. She goes deeper into space with a bigger bag of tricks, and she'll be taking you along for the ride, thank you very much.
PLUS, in addition to the paintings there are six drawings included that are all killer. When I did a studio visit with the Coates a couple years ago the first thing I saw when I walked into the studio were a group of drawings. Here you can almost feel the curator thinking, "Man. We gotta put these in the show. We just have to." And there they are. Six of 'em on the wall ready to drop your jaw just like they did mine. Get lost, and get lost now.
