February 13 – March 12, 2016
Opening Reception: February 13, 10pm – 2am
Screening of It’s Wet: March 5, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Steve Turner is pleased to present Hydration, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based Yung Jake featuring powder-coated steel panels and furniture upon which the artist has both painted and printed symbols of his online and offline worlds. Bottles of Fiji and Volvic water, Xanax pills and emojis exist alongside graffitied texts and images. Yung Jake will also introduce I don’t remember, his newest music video. The opening reception for Hydration is a central part of the exhibition and will take place between 10 pm and 2 am on Saturday, February 13; it will feature DJs Softest Hard, Sonny Digital and Lil Yachty and is organized in collaboration with IllRoots.

Yung Jake was established on the Internet in 2011. He is best known for his rap videos that integrate the worlds of hip-hop, technology, social media and contemporary art. Datamosh (2011) parodied the trend in music video of datamoshing (a digital technique that distorts images) while playing to a contemporary digital art audience. In E.m-bed.de/d (2012), he commented on the pursuit of Internet fame. His work has been screened at Sundance (2013) and he has performed in Los Angeles at the Hammer Museum and Redcat (2013); Museum of Contemporary Art (2014) and J. Paul Getty Museum (2015). He earned a BFA at CalArts in 2012. This is his third solo exhibition at Steve Turner. He will have a solo project at Art Brussels in April.




Steve Turner is pleased announce the premiere of a brand new video by Yung Jake on Saturday, March 5, 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Entitled It’s Wet, the video incorporates footage from the memorable happening that took place only a few weeks ago, on February 13, at the opening of Yung Jake’s exhibition Hydration. It featured performances by Yung Jake as well as DJs Softest Hard, Sonny Digital and Lil Yachty; the event was organized in collaboration with IllRoots.

During the February 13 happening, Yung Jake’s installation—and the gallery itself—were transformed and completed by the mass of over 1,000 people who attended. The main gallery space, now littered with empty bottles, cans and other debris, and bearing the marks from the enormous crowd and the condensation that spontaneously created indoor “rain,” has been left in this transformed state—the detritus is now part of the exhibition.

Hydration features powder-coated steel panels and furniture upon which the artist has both painted and printed symbols of his online and offline worlds. Bottles of Fiji and Volvic water, Xanax pills and emojis exist alongside graffitied texts and images. Also on view is the artist’s recent video, I don’t remember. The closing date is March 12.
