The artist and Editor-in-Chief of bi-annual magazine FOUNDATIONS will present “an introspective look at male adolescence” in relation to the insidious and idealised machinations of normative archetypes of masculinity that promise a superior ideal but only offer failure.
This will be the inaugural exhibition for Club Pro Los Angeles, where Gladstone will explore “a psyche riddled with impossible expectations” via a video installation in the ‘dark’ room, and paintings and sculpture in the ‘light’ one. Here, the “fantasy and pleasure, shame and unease” of idealised desires and their negative effects come expressed through ‘shooter manifestos’ and chat forums like puahate and 4chan.
