BERLIN.- Galerie Michael Janssen presents a

selection of Mario Ybarra Jr.’s recent works. In his first solo
exhibition at
the gallery, the American artist will be presenting two installations.
Born in
Los Angeles in 1973 and a graduate of the University of California,
Ybarra’s biography is key to understanding his work, which draws
attention to
forms of culture on the fringe of the mainstream revealing hidden
within their contexts. His Mexican roots permeate his engagement with
phenomena of contemporary art, street culture and social reality. On
view April
30 through June 19, 2010.
