Ryan McGinley’s exhibition of new nudes, “Everyone Knows This is Nowhere,” opened last night at Team Gallery (83 Grand St, New York). T Magazine caught up with the young artist several days before the opening. The interview reveals quite a bit about McGinley’s working habits, and discusses his use of digital for this project. It marks the first time he’s played with the medium – chosen because of his desire to capture candid portraits in a studio setting.
Personally, I find the new work disturbing, if mostly for the youthful nature of the sitters. This, however, also makes it very successful.
Team Gallery will show the work through April 17, 2010.
