2018 will be a “monumental” year in Plus Gallery’s 17 year history, with a pair of prominent community exhibitions featuring two of the gallery’s most collected artists slated to commence in the spring. In the first, Xi Zhang presents a selection of his most recent large-scale paintings in the solo exhibition IMAGINE, a collaboration with ATC DEN, Denver’s newest and most elegant exhibition space run by Plus Gallery artist Laura Krudener. The exhibition is Zhang’s second solo in the United States in 2018, coming on the heels of his New York City debut with the venerable Marc Straus Gallery, where Zhang served as a resident artist in 2016. IMAGINE will be on view at ATC DEN from April 6th through June 2nd, 2018, with regular gallery hours Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 5pm during the course of the exhibition. A free public reception for the opening of the exhibition is scheduled for Friday, April 6th from 6-9pm. ATC DEN is located at 3420 Larimer Street, Denver, CO 80205.
In the second, Mike Whiting takes on the entirety of Denver Botanic Gardens with the solo exhibition PIXELATED, a massive undertaking that’s been in development over the course of the past year and set to captivate audiences attending the gardens all summer long from April 28 through September 23rd. Whiting has had a number of awe-inspiring solo exhibitions with Plus Gallery since the early start of his career back in 2004, and has gone on to become one of the more significant, focused and successful artists functioning both in the public and collector realms of contemporary art. He has been a core part of the Plus Gallery family of artists, one whose unique brand of minimalism is timeless, striking and genuinely part of contemporary culture. Though simple in essence, the works are phenomenally elaborate, with immense attention paid towards perfection in construction and highly nuanced finish detailing. PIXELATED will consist of approximately 14 outdoor works, both new fabrications currently underway and existing works on loan to the Botanic Gardens, many of which have never been seen before in Denver. The exhibition is a significant opportunity for collector acquisitions in support of an artist approaching mid-career as his reputation surges onto a deeper national level.
