Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present Drawings, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Yung Jake, featuring a new series of computer-generated drawings.
Yung Jake was born on the Internet in 2011. He is best known for his rap videos that integrate the worlds of hip-hop, technology, social media and contemporary art. Datamosh (2011) parodied the trend in music video of datamoshing (a digital technique that distorts images) while playing to a contemporary digital art audience. In E.m-bed.de/d (2012), he commented on the pursuit of Internet fame. His work has been screened at Sundance (2013) and he has performed in Los Angeles at the Hammer Museum and Redcat (2013) and at MOCA (2014). He earned a BFA at CalArts in 2012.
