GROUP SHOW

Date? Friday, June 18th-30th
Time? 6-10 PM
Where? Jackpot Gallery
How Much? …is there a charge? or is it free?
The details… In Riepenhoff’s first ever solo show and first exhibition at Jackpot Gallery a cache of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and a performance will pay homage to work of others that have influenced this artist’s understanding of the art world through their activity in the Milwaukee art scene. Riepenhoff embodies the ethos of other artist’s practices in an attempt to acknowledge their influence on him and to find his own meaning through a more close understanding of others’ work. Resembling a group show yet made by one person, this exhibition is an investigation into originality in the creation process and the influences of a community on art-making.

Riepenhoff is a 2009 winner of the Mary Nohl Fellowship for Individual Artists and is in the 2010 Wisconsin Triennial. His work has been written about in the New York Times and Art Forum and he has exhibited internationally including projects in the Tate Modern and Frieze Art Fair(London); Gavin Brown’s Enterprise and the Swiss Institute (New York); Angstrom Gallery and Ooga Booga (Los Angeles); Tokyo 101 Art Fair (Tokyo); Kölnischer Kunstverein (Cologne), Karma International (Zurich), Fredric Snitzer Gallery (Miami); The Suburban (Oak Park); Milwaukee Art Museum, Dean Jensen Gallery, and Small Space (Milwaukee) among others. In July of 2010 he will be attending Summer Studio Residency at the Sullivan Galleries in Chicago.
