Inner State Gallery Presents Damaged Goods by Luke Chueh
Interactive + Unique Exhibition By Californian Lowbrow Legend
Inner State Gallery is proud to announce Damaged Goods an expansive exhibition by prolific new contemporary multi-media artist Luke Chueh. This entirely new body of work will feature a gallery wide takeover, opening to the public on Friday, April 22nd in Detroit’s Historic Eastern Market. After working with Inner State Gallery’s fine art publisher 1xRUN since their inception in 2011, Chueh has watched the company become one of the contemporary art world’s most prolific, with nearly 1500 releases and counting. “For many years, I've had the pleasure of working with 1xRUN, and I've seen them grow and diversify. For this show, I want to create an exhibition that I could only pull off with Inner State & 1xRUN. In order to do that I took full advantage of the tools and technology that they have in their on site studio. From silkscreen reproduction, to hand-embellished prints, to laser cut editions, this show will truly push the boundary of the kind of artwork I've created and explore the merging of art and commerce,” Chueh said while working in from his Los Angeles studios. For the last 20 years, Chueh has remained a fixture of the contemporary art movement, straddling the line between fine art, lowbrow, limited edition vinyl toys and fine art prints engaging each segment with an equally devoted fanbase. In addition to creating accessible works for collectors of all price points, Damaged Goods will also feature 15 of Chueh’s signature paintings and characters. “As a working artist, I'm constantly dividing my time between the development of my studio art and the production of various products inspired by that artwork. I'm always searching for ways to re-interpret the stories and characters in my paintings and take advantage of collector trends, whether it be limited edition prints, or art toys,” Chueh said. Damaged Goods promises to be a show for the ages with over a dozen new paintings, hand-painting multiples, prints, toys and more. Please join us from 6-9pm on April 22nd for an artist reception. This event is free and open to the public. For additional information to join the collector preview please email firstname.lastname@example.org
1xRUN Presents Trust The Shooter™ - Detroit
A Group Photography Exhibition Curated by Jeremy Deputat & Rick Williams
1xRUN is proud to present Trust The Shooter™ opening March 4th at Inner State Gallery in Detroit’s historic Eastern Market. Curated by Detroit photographers Jeremy Deputat and Rick Williams, this exhibition examines a global pedigree of contemporary urban photography. As the visual world has expanded, these skilled shooters continue to separate themselves, spearheading a global movement with a unique point of view and imagery captured through the lens of a seasoned photographer.
“This unique and raw exhibition explores modern photography through the lens of the world's most active and creative shooters. Trust The Shooter™ photographers are not only shooting every day, but they have refined their craft through instantaneous feedback from a global network of the world’s most discerning photographers and fans,” Deputat said.
The visual artists include Brian Willette, Camera Jesus, Cole Younger, Insighting, Jason Peterson, Jayscale, Jeremy Deputat, Pete Williams, Misshattan, Rick Williams, Ta-ku, Steve Sweatpants & Van Styles. Each photographer will show a single 20x30 inch print, and a signed & numbered edition of 10 will be available at the exhibition, as well as online at www.1xrun.com
Curated from the tight-knit Trust The Shooter™ movement, these 13 photographers will transport viewers around the globe with beautiful imagery that captures the ever-changing world around us. While others may pass by without noticing their surroundings, the Trust The Shooter™ photographer captures these unseen moments with an unwavering eye for detail.
“These photographers have developed massive followings through years of some of the most creative and groundbreaking street photography. The collective reach of these shooters stretches to millions of fans worldwide,” Williams said. Taking risks and pushing beyond the norm is a core motivation for this crew and this exhibition will transport the viewer across the globe with these breathtaking photographs.
In addition to the exhibition, Inner State gallery will host a Q&A, moderated by Rick Williams, with Havas Worldwide Chief Creative Officer Jason Peterson and commercial photographer Jeremy Deputat from 5pm-7pm preceding the exhibition on March 4th.
