Yung Jake is presenting his solo exhibition, Hydration, at LA’s Steve Turner, opening February 13 and running to March 12.
The LA-based artist will be showing “powder-coated steel panels and furniture” marked with the graffiti tags and online and offline symbols of his contemporary reality, including “bottles of Fiji and Volvic water, Xanax pills”, along with text and image.
The opening will also mark the launch of a new music video by the artist-rapper called ‘I don’t remember’, as well performances by DJs Softest Hard, Sonny Digital and Lil Yachty, organized in collaboration with IllRoots. The event is listed as central to the exhibition, starting at 10 pm and running into the early hours.
Yung Jake recently took part in Steve Turner’s The Real Worldgroup exhibition and played the LA Art Book Fair opening closing party on February 11 (the fair runs to February 14).
