Dan Levenson: Artworks and Objects from the SKZ
September 15–October 15, 2022

Dan Levenson deals in red herrings. Each A3 format oil painting presents a new action within a game both circular and rectangular. An exercise divided into quarters, their creation is guided by a score that is carried out by the roll of a dice. Living in Los Angeles, Levenson grew up in Boston and graduated from the Royal College of Art in London in 1997. Yet each painting bears the full name of a different author. If you were to ask: these makers emerge from a larger group of artists, all of whom graduated from the same fictionalized Swiss art school in 1997 (the SKZ). To devise these aliases Levenson recorded names found in a Swiss phone book. Then, alongside the construction of each painting, its author would be computer generated.

Dan Levenson has presented solo exhibitions at Praz-Delavallade in Los Angeles, Paris, and Brussels; Susanne Vielmetter, Los Angeles; and Vox Populi, Philadelphia. His work has been included in group exhibitions at LAXART, Honor Fraser, Charlie James Gallery, Steve Turner, and Wilding Cran Gallery in Los Angeles and Participant Inc in New York. He has presented live performances at The Hammer Museum, LAXART, and 356 S. Mission Rd in Los Angeles; the Museum of Modern Art, White Columns, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP), and Triangle Project Space in New York; Saas-Fee Institute of Art, Berlin; and Peloton, Sydney. He graduated an MFA from the Royal College of Art, London and BA from Oberlin College, Ohio. Levenson has received MacDowell Fellowships (2019, 2011), Yaddo Fellowships (2014, 2004, 2001, 2000), Skowhegan Residency, and Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
