THE TOWNHOUSE of NEW YORK: new works by Alejandro Diaz

opening: Saturday March 19 2011 4pm-8pm
artist will be in attendance

“Royale Projects in Indian Wells presents THE TOWNHOUSE of NEW YORK, a series of new works by Alejandro Diaz. Inspired by his experiences at The Townhouse, a mid-town Manhattan watering-hole for the aesthete elite of a golden era, Alejandro Diaz brings his own high-art / low-art take on the glamorous, domestic interiors of this upscale crowd which de rigueur includes a nod to Donald Judd, Dubuffet, Warhol, and others. Part gallery exhibition, part townhouse, part cash-and-carry art sale, Diaz offers a swanky affair of artistic and domestic bliss and is putting you on the exclusive guest list.

Earning an International reputation for his cardboard signs – which the artist began making and selling to passers-by in a performance art piece staged in front of Tiffany’s in New York City – Diaz’ new works include a return to painting, sculpture, collage, and works in neon. Like his politically charged and wryly humorous signs, these new works are emblematic of his ongoing involvement with art as a form of entertainment, as artworld critique, and as social intervention.

In 2004 Diaz was the recipient of the prestigious Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award and in 2007 he participated in a major group exhibition at LACMA, Phantom Sightings: Art After the Chicano Movement which traveled to Mexico City, Houston, and New York. In 2009 Diaz presented a solo project at the critically acclaimed Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, CT. In 2010 Diaz had his first West Coast solo exhibition at Happy Lion in Los Angeles. He has lectured on his work at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Drawing Center, NY and has been reviewed in publications such as the New Yorker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, WWD, Architectural Digest (Mexico), Dwell, Flash Art, and Frieze. His work is included in the collections of the Fundacion Jumex, El Museo del Barrio and was recently added to the permanent collection at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. This is Alejandro Diaz’ first solo exhibition at Royale Projects.”
