Deitch Projects is pleased to present installationview, an immersive installation of new works by Ryan McGinness. The exhibition is an environment of wall paintings punctuated by numerous two-sided circular discs of various sizes. McGinness has titled these new pieces “universals” in reference to the contained universes they represent and the iconic universal language for which McGinness is best known. The flat graphic worlds within each universal take the viewer into various scale-shifting landscapes and transform the gallery into a playful candy-like cosmos with these slick, brightly colored works.

The opening will also be a celebration of the new Ryan McGinness book by the same title, installationview published by Rizzoli. Part artist’s book and part catalogue, installationview is a 288 page collection of new paintings, works on paper, installations, sketches, notes, inspiration snapshots, and pieces made specifically for its pages with essays by Jeffrey Deitch, AA Bronson, Carlo McCormick, and Randy Gladman.
