Darren Bader: Group Show | The Little House, Los Angeles, CA

September 23 – October 30, 2021

Darren Bader
Group Show
The Little House
451 N. La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA

Dries Van Noten is pleased to present Group Show, an exhibition of artist Darren Bader at The Little House in Los Angeles.

In Group Show, the artist will install works from a diverse range of disciplines and mediums. Works include new sculptures from the CS series, where Bader creates assemblages from objects previously owned by famous people; stanza sculpture, an ambitious, and humorous, multi-part work combining 3D animation, fake Ikea instructions, NFTs, and junk mail; and 6 Sides of Scott Mendes, a QR-driven “portal” to surreal and hilarious AR sculptures. Group Show will also be the Stateside premiere of Bader's latest comic book. The show explores the artist's perennial interests in found objects, paradox, Pop, digital media, and exhibition making itself.

Bader’s work falls into a number of broad groupings, including pairings, impossible sculpture, misattribution, aura hunting, augmented reality, and trash sculpture. His exhibitions are frequently collaborative in nature, exploring and questioning the interconnectedness of seemingly disparate objects through complex (re)arrangements, chance juxtapositions, and absurd associations. 

Darren Bader lives and works in New York, NY. His work has been the subject of exhibitions at Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; Museo MADRE, Naples, Italy; Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne, Germany; and MoMA PS1, Queens, NY. From 2001 to 2004, he worked at the MoCA store downtown. This will be his first exhibition on N. La Cienega Blvd. Further information @ aaronbader.com.
