Private spaces

Ryan McGinley

A wide intimate variety
of body styles.

  Ryan McGinley has been working on an untitled project involving mirrors for the past three years. Inspired originally by instructional artworks by such divergent practitioners as Miranda July, Sol Lewitt, Rob Pruitt and Yoko Ono, McGinley soon realized that his proposed project would also allow viewers access to the kinds of private spaces that had figured so prominently in his work from the early aughts, namely the living spaces of New York’s stalwart population of bohemians.
For Mirror, Mirror exhibition McGinley chose the subjects: each of them was provided with a camera, a set of instructions, three rolls of film and twenty mirrors. The rolls of film were delivered back to McGinley who sorted through the material selecting a singular image to represent each particular subject.
Mirror, Mirror the exhibition will run from 29 June through 29 September 2018 at Team Gallery, New York.
