California Sun

a different kinda group show

If you're lucky enough to be in beautiful Milano later this month, you shouldn't miss out on visiting a rad new group show titled “California Sun“, which presents over thirty works by Mike Giant, Josh Jefferson and Russ Pope created specifically for Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea. The exhibition runs from September 22 - November 4, 2016.

“The fall season 2016 of the Milanese gallery inaugurates its spaces bringing California sun to Milan. California Sun, the title of the show curated by Luca Beatrice, presents the new works of the American Josh Jefferson, Russ Pope and Mike Giant. Hailing from different parts of the stars and stripes continent and characterized by very heterogeneous languages, the three are connected –who for training (Pope's past as a professional skateboarder ties him to the west coast, Josh Jefferson grew-up in Santa Cruz), who for a life choice (Giant has lived for years between San Francisco and Los Angeles) – by a common denominator: the cultural roots of the west coast.“
