We’re pleased to announce two new fundraising editions with artist Anthony Iacono, debuting at the Printed Matter booth at Art Los Angeles Contemporary.
Iacono’s work plays with themes of fetish and queer culture in relationship to mundane nuances of the everyday. The relationships of the figures and seemingly ordinary objects elicit an unexpected and humorous eroticism. In these works, the original function of a telephone and a clothespin is called into question and their meaning is replaced with a fantasy of physical pleasure.
The prints were produced with the publisher and risograph studio TXT Books.
Both editions will be available for purchase at the Printed Matter booth in the Movable Types section at ALAC (Art Los Angeles Contemporary), taking place at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica.
Brussels-based curator Frances Horn organizes Movable Types, a robust selection of independent art publishers at ALAC.
The tenth edition of the fair will feature top established and emerging galleries from around the world, with a strong focus on Los Angeles galleries. Participants will present some of the most dynamic recent works from their roster of represented artists, offering an informed view on contemporary art making.
