Rental Gallery is pleased to present Summer Rental, a group exhibition organized by writer, curator and artist Kenny Schachter. The show is a love letter to summers, and a celebration of life, family, art, and vacations.
As art-lifers, art is our sandpit, playpen and fun in the sun. There is no escape; in fact, we’d rather it that way. This exhibit is comprised of an affordable hodgepodge of stuff we love, all things art: paintings, sculptures, videos and more, newly made coupled with historically significant works.
Artists include: Mark Grotjahn, Henry Moore, Rita Ackermann, Roy Lichtenstein, Jacqueline Humphries, Joel Mesler, Vito Acconci, Dan Asher, Ricci Albenda, Katherine Bernhardt, Lucky De Bellevue, Forcefield, Devon Dikeou, Kim Gordon, William Kentridge, Misaki Kawai, Craig Kalpakjian, Ryan McGinley, AR Penck, Rene Ricard, Mika Rottenberg, Christian Schumann, Jessica Stockholder, Spencer Sweeney, Nicola Tyson, Marie Hazard, Robert Gunderman, Mitchell Algus, Loie Hollowell, Sarah Aibel, Illona Rich, Adrian, Kai, Gabriel, Sage and Kenny Schachter.
Better than the beach, and cheaper—with one hour free parking.
ABOUT RENTAL GALLERY
Rental Gallery began in 2004 in Los Angeles as a way to bridge the New York and West Coast art communities, as well as to provide a venue for flexible and experimental programming, both by local curators and gallerists, and those from out of town.
