Opening as part of the Armory Center For Arts Installations Inside/Out 20th Anniversary Exhibition, Barry McGee has created an off-site installation in the city of Pasadena.
Barry McGee, untitled
2 E. Holly Street, Pasadena
Installation: September 19 – December 31, 2009
Space is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays noon – 5 p.m.
Given his sources in street art, Barry McGee’s temporary work for the exhibition is unusual compared to the normal site of an outdoor painting. The artist chose an unused storefront near the Armory. McGee’s work, covering almost all the walls of the store, is made up of a large number of his complex geometric paintings on thin pieces of wood on which he has done additional painting.
