Wade Guyton (b. 1972) is one of the participating artist at the show Abstract Possible: The Tamayo Takes in Mexico City with an installation that covers all of the exhibition’s floor.
He has had solo exhibitions at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, the Museum Dhondt- Dhaenens in Deurle, at Portikus in Frankfurt and at the Kunstverein in Hamburg. His work has been shown in the Whitney Biennial of 2004, Lyon Biennial of 2007 and the Torino Triennale of 2009. Upcoming solo exhibitions include the Vienna Secession and the Kunsthalle Zurich. Guyton works in many media including drawing, photography, sculpture, painting and installation. His works on linen made with an inkjet printer are notable for straddling the categories of digital media, photography and painting. In his recent exhibitions Guyton presents these works as paintings, but he also engages with the architecture of the galleries in which they are hung, for example either by laying a painted false floor over the existing floor or by altering the scale of the paintings to adapt to the pre-existing architectural constraints. Guyton also collaborates with Kelley Walker as Guyton/Walker, whose work has been shown at the Venice Biennale 0f 2009, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Serpentine Gallery, Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna-Mambo and is a member of the publishing and performance collective Continuous Project who have presented work at Modern Art Oxford and MUMOK, Vienna. Wade Guyton lives and works in New York.
