CULTUREEDIT Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of works by American multi-media artist Tyler Matthew Oyer.
Titled CONSTELLATIONS, the exhibition features twenty analog portraits of friends, lovers, mentors, and inspirations - a method of photographing that focuses on the tender connections and bonds we form as we orbit each other and move throughout this world. Oyer’s subjects include artists across disciplines; Ashley Huizenga, Barbara T. Smith, Casey Spooner, Christeene, Frederick Weston, Hayden Dunham, K8 Hardy, Kembra Pfahler, Robert Alfons, and Sebastian Hernandez to name a few, representing a community changing the art world’s status quo. Also on view are two ceramic wall-pieces of faces, serving as an extension of his drawings and made to represent portraiture through a different media.
Tyler’s work has been presented at MoMA PS1, REDCAT, The Getty Museum, dOCUMENTA (13), Hammer Museum, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Kunstnernes Hus Oslo, Munch Museum, Art Basel Miami Beach, Bergen Kunstall, Rogaland Kunstsenter, Shedhalle Zürich, The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, High Desert Test Sites, Highways Performance Space, Human Resources Los Angeles, Silencio Paris, MIX NYC, Ekebergparken Oslo, Surge Festival Madrid, Lukiškiu Kalėjimas Vilnius, and the Orange County Museum of Art. In addition to their work as a visual and performing artist, Tyler has released three original music albums: RELEASE DELUXE (2017), NO TEMPLE (2020), and TENDERNESS (2022).
The exhibition coincides with the launch of Tyler’s first book titled PORTRAITS
