Ash Ferlito @ White Cubicle Toilet Gallery, Oct 6 – Oct 31

5 October 2016

Ash Ferlito is presenting solo exhibition Coming in Hot at London’s White Cubicle Toilet Gallery, opening October 6 running through October 31.

The exhibition — which also comes recommended as part of this week’s Frieze 2016 offsite + fringe events — presents new paintings, sculptural and video works by the New York-based artist that “transmit humour and pathos in equal parts”. The materials shift and respond to ideas and their environment, with “the novelty of new materials” providing greater freedom for Ferlito.

The thematic undertones of the artist’s work — who also took part in Guccivuitton (since renamed Versace Versace Versace)’s The Christmas Show in Miami last year — are diaristic in form but not insular enough to close the work off from the viewer. There is always plenty of space for the onlooker to have freedom to interpret the work as they please.

The opening includes DJ sets from Bézier, Honey Soundsystem, and SF.

The Christmas Show @ Guccivuitton, Dec 1 – Jan 9

14 December 2015

The Christmas Show group exhibition is on at Miami’s Guccivuitton, opening December 1 and running to January 9, 2016.

Featuring the likes of Cristine Brache, Autumn Casey, Phillip Estlund and Hugo Montoya among others, the press release consists solely of lyrics from WHAM!’s famous hit ‘Last Christmas’. The work is installed to make one feel as if they were walking through a Christmas display at a shopping mall, only the usual items one would expect to see have been disrupted in some form, such as with Paul McCarthy’s infamous ‘Santa with Butt Plug.

Other artists in the exhibition include Henning Fehr und Philipp Rühr, Elizabeth Ferry, Ash Ferlito, Kathryn Marks, Jonathan Peck, Teresa Sanchez, Richard Spit, Michael Swaney and Matt Taber, which will also be marked by a Holiday Party on December 25, with performances by Waterfront (Patricia Margarita Hernandez & Craig Poor Monteith),  Jan & Dave,  and Kayla de la Cerda.
