Mar. 15: David Buckingham reception

DAVID BUCKINGHAM:
HOW TO TALK DIRTY AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE

March 15 – May 3, 2008

Reception: Saturday, March 15, 2008, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm

Buckingham’s inspiration — graffiti, snippets of dialogue overheard in office hallways, advertising, guns and their effect on the American psyche, the culture of celebrity (and celebrity guns), cartoons, movies — have all sunk into his consciousness over the years and they are starting to make their way back out. In his first solo show at MMGalleries, David Buckingham reiterates all of it, together with his inclination for anything with a history.

A New Orleans native currently working in Los Angeles, Buckingham is associated with the Rivington School in New York City, and is shown in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago. His work has been included in an exhibition at the Riverside Art Museum, and in several private collections throughout the United States.

The artist will be present at a reception held at MMGalleries on Saturday, March 15, 2008, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
