The gallery will be closed Saturday, April 20th for the holidays.
Boyland’s most outstanding pieces focus on intimate portraits of queer, black men in the comfort of domestic settings, free from the prejudices which follow them throughout their life. Although relaxed, by deconstructing their anxieties, the men are inherently defiant in their abode. On Saturday, April 6th, Kohn Gallery opened On Hold:, an exhibition, which, in conjunction with NY-based artist Heidi Hahn's stellar show, Burn Out in Shredded Heaven, continues on until May 23rd. Flaunt had the lovely opportunity to chat with Boyland on his experiences growing up in the South, the inspiration behind his work, and the power behind portraiture.
Los Angeles–based artist Enrique Martínez Celaya has joined Kohn Gallery’s roster, which includes Ori Gersht, Rosa Loy, Mark Ryden, and others. Martínez Celaya will have his first solo exhibition at the Los Angeles enterprise in September, and a selection of his works will be on view at the gallery this week, in conjunction with Frieze Los Angeles.
