DECEPCION + ALL OYSTERS, NO PEARLS
21 SEPTEMBER - 20 OCTOBER 2012
Presentation of the latest two projects: “Decepción” and “All Oysters, No Pearls”
Luis Gispert was one of the artists who told us to open up a gallery space here in Palma de Mallorca. June 2011 we started up our gallery Mallorca Landings with a big Gispert solo where he showed large scale photos, sculptures and his latest film “Turbo Burbo”. To have a top 100 ranked artist in our roster, and whose career we’ve been following since beginning of 2000, is nothing but a true honor. As it’s likewise a pleasure it’s also a responsibility to present you all Gispert fans and collectors his latest ideas and works. We therefor have built up quite an extensive show for you based on recent works together with works from his last two U.S shows; Decepción(Mary Boone Gallery, NY) and All Oysters, No Pearls(OHWOW, LA).
Gispert’s work is inspired by a cultural amalgamation of music, cinema, urban/pop culture, car culture, and the lyrical theatrics of hip hop.
