Welcome to the jam. L.A.-based artist Devin Troy Strother is presenting a solo exhibit at the Marlborough Chelsea in New York City inspired by the 1996 classic basketball film, Space Jam, later this spring. The artist’s paintings, mixed-media pieces and sculptures use everything from basketball trading cards to stickers to depict NBA players (you can bet Michael Jordan makes more than one appearance) and other basketball references. Part of the gallery has also been transformed into a basketball court. The exhibit’s name is a play on words, referencing the challenge faced by the artist to fill the venue with content. ”Space” refers to the Marlborough Chelsea’s size, and “jam” is used as a verb meaning to create something hastily—art, in this case.
The exhibit will be open to the public until Feb. 14, 2015. Its grand opening was Saturday. For more details, head over to the exhibition’s web page.
