Ross Hansen
Tino’s White Horses
Opening Saturday, June 25 2022
from 5 – 8PM at Marta

Join Marta and Ross Hansen for the opening of the L.A. artist’s inaugural Los Angeles solo exhibition. Tino’s White Horses opens to the public on Saturday, June 25 with an evening vernissage celebrating this new body of lighting, seating, surface, and basket works that commune with the sculptor’s newly-adopted part-time homestead in the desert outside of Ojo Caliente, New Mexico. New works across several typologies materially engage with Hansen's signature epoxy resin alongside novel forms in vinyl upholstery and knotted fiberglass. Cocktails by Ben Sanders make use of Hansen’s favorite spirits.

STOOLS
Catalog Launch

Marta and JF Chen are delighted to announce the launch of the exhibition catalog for ‘STOOLS from the JF Chen Collection’. Co-published by Marta and JF Chen, ‘STOOLS’ is a 136-page, hardcover, cloth-bound, offset-printed book that contains each of the approximately 150 stool works from the eponymous exhibition alongside an essay by Dung Ngo, a photo essay by Brian Guido, and photographs by Erik Benjamins. ‘STOOLS’ has been expertly printed in Belgium by Die Keure in an edition of 500. The publication can be purchased via the Editions page of the Marta website.

Lindsey Muscato & Joshua Friedman
at Themes & Projects
May 07 – June 30 2022

Lindsey Muscato & Joshua Friedman of Los Angeles-based studio practice Base 10 present several works from their ongoing Kodama series at Themes + Projects in San Francisco’s Dogpatch. Initial Kodama works premiered alongside an exhibition of the same name at Marta in the Spring of 2019, each drawing upon the tools, joinery, methods, and precedents of traditional Japanese timber-framing. The pieces in Kodama—loosely translated as ‘spirits of the trees’—are made with large-scale timbers culled from salvaged Coastal Redwood and Douglas Fir in order to construct sculptural interpretations of seating, shelving, consoles, and tables. On view through June 30, 2022 at the wonderful Minnesota Street Project.

Minjae Kim & Myoung-Ae Lee
at Matter Projects
May 19 – July 29 2022

Minjae Kim, whose inaugural solo show ‘I Was Evening All Afternoon’ debuted at Marta in the Summer of 2021, premieres a new body of work at long-standing New York design destination Matter / Matter Projects. Here, Brooklyn-based Kim places his work in direct dialogue with the mixed-media paintings of his mother, Seoul-based Myoung-Ae Lee, crafting several functional works that function almost as dual-artist diptychs when placed alongside Lee’s output. On view through July 29, 2022.

Marta

Marta is a gallery that hosts works at the meeting points of art and design. Founded in Los Angeles in 2019, the gallery makes space for artists to experiment with the utility of design, and for designers to explore the occasional abandonment of function. Marta’s curatorial and publication programs take interest in both the process of an object’s creation as well the narrative of its creator(s). Marta embraces the intersection of disciplines, advocates for diversity in design, and promotes access to the arts.
