On 4 April 2009, the Mary Boone Gallery will open at its Chelsea location an exhibition curated by Javier Peres of works by MIKE KELLEY, TERENCE KOH, and JEFF KOONS.
If you are reading this, thank you. My purpose in assembling this exhibition was not to emphasize a curatorial message as such, but rather – quite simply – to put three of my favorite American artists side by side. No tricks, no gimmicks, no bullshit, just sculptures representative of each artist’s practice. I hope you enjoy looking. - Javier Peres, Berlin, February 18, 2009
