Glenn Kaino, a Los Angeles–based conceptual artist who vastly expands traditional notions of artistic practice, is featured in the Modern’s FOCUS: Glenn Kaino, on view January 30 through April 17. Trained as a sculptor, Kaino is described as a “new breed of artist/entrepreneurs - an intellectual free spirit bound to no artistic genre” in an Artillery article by Seth Hawkins. Believing that “the circumstances created with art-making allow for true generative exchange to happen,” Kaino takes on a broad array of subject matter, including “space making,” magic, and software development. In 2014, he challenged the Norwegian chess prodigy Magnus Carlsen to a public chess match as a performance of Burning Boards, which was inspired by Heidegger’s statement, “The possible ranks higher than the actual.” For his FOCUS exhibition, Kaino has created new work, including a language project that supposes new space-based languages as they might result through the conditions of technology, as well as his now-signature “kitbashing” works that, according to the artist, “May offer a glimpse of a new way of knowing.”

For Tuesday Evenings at the Modern, Kaino shares the breadth, intricacies, and philosophy of his diverse practice.
