Kayne Griffin Corcoran boasts a space that allows visitors to completely leave the bustling Hollywood landscape behind as they enter through the gallery gates into a kind of serene outdoor sanctuary; an effect made more palpable by details inside, such as a James Turrell ceiling in the conference room. On July 12, despite the heat and the traffic, there was an impressive turnout at the unique space for the opening of Contort Yourself, a self-described “series of solo exhibitions disguised as a group show.” The exhibition, curated by The Modern Institute, includes works by Luke Fowler, Jim Lambie, Jonnie Wilkes and Sue Tompkins, and demonstrates just how good a summer group show can be. Tompkins even gave a special performance for the Saturday night opening. If you haven’t seen it yet Contort Yourself is a great show to check out as we head into the so-called dead of summer. It will be up through August 30.
