Joseph Beuys’s “Friday Object ‘1st-Class Fried Fish Bones (Herring)’” was created in 1970 following a performance at Daniel Spoerri’s Eat Art Gallerie in Düsseldorf. Andrea Gyorody, the curator of our exhibition I LIKE LA AND LA LIKES ME: JOSEPH BEUYS AT 100, wrote about the work’s entertaining and fascinating history in her art food newsletter @weekly_special. Visit the Weekly Special IG profile for the link to the newsletter on Substack. Come visit and see the exhibition. We’re open Wed-Sat 12-6pm (no appointment necessary). DM or call for inquiries. #beuys2021 #beuys100 #josephbeuys @gyorodyody #track16gallery #foodandart #friedfishfriday #artlosangeles #bendixbuilding #fridayobject

Joseph Beuys was born 100 years ago in 1922. We are celebrating his centennial with the exhibition “I Like LA and LA Like Me: Joseph Beuys at 100” that places his work alongside Los Angeles artists who are kindred spirits to his legacy. We are open 12-6pm Friday and Saturday this holiday weekend (regular hours). Pictured is Kandis Williams’s “Erotic Aerial of the Psyche of two Neo-liberal white artbros discussing their right leaning tendencies. EthnoRoadMap of Psychopathy I” from 2018 (Sharpie and tape on paper, framed). The exhibition was curated by Andrea Gyorody and continues through September 12 at our space in the @bendixbuilding . @kandis_williams’s work at Track 16 courtesy of @nightgallery. #beuys2021 #beuys100 @gyorodyody #track16gallery #bendixbuilding #artlosangeles #kandiswilliams #artbros

Friday night is our first public reception since early 2020. Please join us between 5 and 9pm at our space on the 10th floor of the Bendix Building. Masks are optional in the gallery, so come as you feel comfortable. On the occasion of German artist Joseph Beuys’s 100th birthday, I Like LA and LA Likes Me: Joseph Beuys at 100 explores the artist’s legacy through his multiples—editioned objects and works on paper that Beuys conceived as vehicles for spreading his ideas as widely as possible —and in relation to kindred work being made today in Los Angeles. Curated by art historian Andrea Gyorody, this exhibition takes as its point of departure Track 16’s substantial collection of Beuys multiples, which includes iconic sculptural objects such as Sled (1970) and Telephone T-R (1974), alongside performance relics, readymades, fabricated objects, lithographs, and posters. Arguing for Beuys’s continued relevance, I Like LA and LA Likes Me places his multiples in dialogue with works by Beatriz Cortez and rafa esparza, veronique d’entremont, Candice Lin, and Kandis Williams. Though departing from Beuys’s legacy in many ways, these artists share some of his key sensibilities —shamanism, environmentalism, interspecies collaboration, self-
mythology, drawing as discourse, alchemy and homeopathy as artistic strategies—and extend them in new and critically important directions.

Last week to see John Collins’s Moonlight Graham exhibition. Viewable in person at Track 16 or on our website. Each drawing is a devotional to baseball in the 2020 pandemic year where America’s favorite pastime was halted. As a game that many children fantasize about, the dream continues in this series. Pretending his identity was 'Moonlight Graham,' a newspaper comic illustrator, Collins would highlight a play or story of interest every day from within the baseball world. He created these works on a fictional deadline because within this fantasy, his drawing would appear in the next morning’s sports section next to the baseball scores and standings. The name Moonlight Graham reverberates with multiple meanings. It was descriptive of his own creative act of moonlighting--these were created at night after working on his studio paintings or handyman jobs. It is also a pun on social media: Moonlight (nightly) and Graham (Instagram). Lastly, as a nod to baseball fans, the name is recognizable as the name of a baseball player in the early 20th century who became a household name thanks to W. P. Kinsella’s novel, Shoeless Joe, which was later adapted into the film, Field of Dreams. The baseball player received his nickname because he moonlit as a doctor during his playing days, which Collins found a nice parallel to his own project. #baseballart #baseballdrawing @john.collins.9 #track16gallery

Last week to see John Collins’s amazing installation of 6x8” ink on paper baseball drawings. The show’s title “Moonlight Graham” was taken from the name of the baseball player made famous from the book Shoeless Joe. Other meanings resonated for Collins who thought of this devotional nightly project as a moonlighting job and to keep himself going he imagined himself on deadline for the morning newspaper. Make reservations to visit through May 29th.

109 years ago today the entire Detroit Tigers team went on strike to protest their star player, Ty Cobb’s recent suspension. The Tigers owner was forced to enlist a local priest to find a last minute replacement team. The priest, Allan Travers, who pitched the entire game, giving up all 24 runs in a 24-2 drubbing said, “About noon when Nolan told me about the strike of the Detroit players he told me the club would be fined and might lose its franchise if twelve players didn’t show up. He told me to round up as many fellows as I could find, so I went down to 23rd and Columbia where a bunch of fellows were standing around the corner. We thought we’d just go out and appear. We never thought we’d play a game.” Drawing by John Collins is part of his Moonlight Graham exhibition of 132 drawings at Track 16. Visit website to makes reservations to view in person. You can also view the exhibition online.

When painter John Collins planned to make a drawing every night of the 2020 baseball season as if on deadline, COVID-19 was not yet on the horizon. The suspension of the season did not thwart his plan. Beginning opening day he drew scenes from baseball history. And when Korean baseball started up in May he began painting their games as it was one of the only team sports being played last May. Preston Tucker left the U.S. in 2019 to play for the Kia Tigers. John Collins’s Moonlight Graham exhibition can be seen in person and online. https://www.track16.com/john-collins-moonlight-graham

Pictured: Joseph Beuys, “Object to Smear and Turn.” 1972. Tin with gear grease, screwdriver. Edition of 100.

“An image in full color, no matter when it was made, always seems to depict the present. Conversely, an image in black and white instantly cements itself as a documentation of something that has happened in the past. This is perhaps why black and white photography continues to persevere: because it is a more truthful representation of a documented moment, a memory. While I loved finding an excuse to drop in one or two pops of color, my nightly ink-wash paintings relied heavily on the nostalgic emotion provided by the monochrome renderings.” — John Collins on his Moonlight Graham series at Track 16.

Pedro Alvarez (1967-2004). A Trip to Heaven. 2003. Oil on paper. 29.5 x 45 inches. In his paintings, Alvarez was often connecting class, race, and the caste systems of Cuba. Here he dipicts Velazquez and his enslaved assistant Juan de Pareja who went on to paint on his own after being freed. #juandepareja #diegovelazquez #velazquez #cubanart #artecubano #latinamericanart
