Margaret Kilgallen’s letter to Aaron Rose about showing with Jeffrey Deitch

margaret kilgallen letterhead Margaret Kilgallens letter to Aaron Rose about showing with Jeffrey Deitch margaret kilgallen Jeffrey Deitch alleged gallery

Saw this on TWBE. As much as its interesting to read the late-great SF artist, Margaret Kilgallen, writing to Alleged Gallery owner Aaron Rose that she was going to show with Jeffrey Deitch as opposed to Rose is interesting, it is far better to see her letterhead…

Barry Mcgee & Margaret Kilgallen Documentary

Must watch. Probably the best duo in our version of contemporary art, Barry McGee and his late wife, Margaret Kilgallen, made some of the most important, heartfelt folk graffiti and fine art of the past 25 years. They were the Diego and Frida for the 1990s. A must-watch, inspirational piece of two young artists beginning to become major figures.

If you grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, or still live here, and are followers of contemporary art, then Margaret Kilgallen is royalty. When she passed away in 2001, after giving birth and then passing away from cancer, her and husband, Barry McGee, carried the torch for a new form of bohemian art, a unique brand of graffiti, street art, fine art, surf art, and folk art that seemed could only exist and be nurtured in Northern California during this time. Through the gritty SOMA streets, to dot com booms, to what was called, for better or worse, “The Mission School,” and then on to international recognition, Kilgallen represented the true essence of San Francisco art and new wave of contemporary art that was less informed by museum culture and more bred in a more organic fashion. To this day, she is considered one of the greats. —The CItrus Report

Margaret Kilgallen: Summer / Selections at Ratio 3

R3MK035 LORES 605x413 Margaret Kilgallen: Summer / Selections at Ratio 3 ratio 3 margaret kilgallen

Opening June 23rd at Ratio 3 in San Francisco. From the press release:

Ratio 3 is pleased to present Margaret Kilgallen: Summer / Selections, on view from June 23 to August 5, 2011.

Margaret Kilgallen (1967–2001) is considered by many to be one of the most influential, yet under-recognized, Bay Area artist of her generation. Kilgallen, along with a handful of other artists such as Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, and Alicia McCarthy, came to emergence in the late 1990s, as part of an art movement that is now commonly referred to as the Mission School.

On view in the gallery will be a selection of works-on-paper and paintings on canvas, some never before seen. Many of the works are painted on discarded pages from books, emphasizing Kilgallen’s resourcefulness and economy of materials. This is also reflected in the canvas works, most of which were cut and sewn together by hand, giving the paintings a quilt-like quality. The imagery depicted includes her iconic motifs such as leaves, trees, topography, and female figures, all of which exemplify Kilgallen’s delicate and adept hand. Her humble, almost folkloric, style pushes some of the imagery into simple abstractions of color, lines, and repeating shapes. This exhibition offers an intimate look into Kilgallen’s very personal and singular vision.

The work of Margaret Kilgallen has been exhibited internationally at venues such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, REDCAT, Los Angeles, UCLA Hammer Museum, The Drawing Center, New York, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, and the DESTE Foundation Centre for Contemporary Art, Athens, Greece.

Art in the Streets

Yes, we were lucky enough to attend the opening party for the what appears to become seminal “Art In the Streets” show at Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in downtown Los Angeles last night. There was A LOT to see, overwhelming at times, but when we started to think it was all a bit too much, we went back into REAS/ESPO/TWIST’s Street Market, or Swoon’s room, or Banksy’s space, or the Drugs Crew wall, or LEE’s pieces, or Chaz Bojorquez’s mural, or Mister Cartoon’s wall, or Margaret Kilgallen’s installation, or Rammellzee’s room, or the timeline, or Os Gemeos room, or Martha Cooper’s photos, and you realized it was all perfectly fitting and epic. —The Citrus Report staff
