Yung Jake, New, Steve Turner Contemporary, 2014

Los Angeles-based artist Yung Jake has returned to Steve Turner Contemporary for another solo exhibition that you should consider checking out, especially if you appreciated the “Yung Jake: Drawings” this past May.

Titled “New,” this exhibition features “reclaimed scrap metal upon which Internet content has been attached or printed.” According to the artist, the works in the show deal with “the nexus between the overlooked and the ever-present, both in real life and online.” From dented boxes printed with video thumbnails, to stock images of skeletons on pieces of sheet metal, Yung Jake’s works are interesting, sometimes funny, and definitely worth checking out.

The exhibition runs through August 23.
