Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects announces Forest, a first solo exhibition with William Pope.L opening on October 23, 2015. This exhibition will feature paintings and sculptures in an architectural installation surveying the artists object-based practice from the mid-1990s through the present. A simultaneous solo exhibition, Desert, at Steve Turner Contemporary will present a new film, Obi Sunt, about the ghost of Joe Gans, the first African American World Boxing Champion, and the mythology that surrounds the resurrection of a past through biography. The exhibitions will be accompanied by a GPS tour of the space in between the forest and the desert, Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects and Steve Turner Gallery. An artist-led walking tour exploring these themes will leave from each gallery on November 7, 2015.
