Wes Lang at Chateau Marmont
Brooklyn-based artist Wes Lang has hid himself away in Room 34 of LA’s Chateau Marmont to create “Sittin’ On a Rainbow”, a collection of carefully had rendered drawings. The series references everything from Native American iconography to the late great Dash Snow to Jim Morrison. “The base of it all is American history, but it’s also self-reflective: sometimes, the skeletons and the reapers are me. The women are just plain beautiful to draw.” The project was inspired by Martin Kippenberger’s early 90s Hotel Drawings and the exhibition will be on view for a one-night-only, in the room once occupied by Howard Hughes at the Chateau Marmont on June 23th.
