Assemblage Art Visionary George Herms at Susan Inglett Gallery

George Herms, the legendary figure from California's 1960s-era assemblage movement, is hot again --  for like the umpteenth time in his itinerant career as a visionary innovator. Eschewing the nostalgia of California's expansive, multi-institution survey "Pacific Standard Time," Herms chose to turn his retrospective at MoCA into a paean to the present, getting director Jeffrey Deitch and curator Neville Wakefield to compliment his work with a pantheon of today's most wildly inventive artists. Like a wonderful missing link between Beat poetics, freestyle jazz, Cali Cool School and the current crop of hipsters who hold him in reverence, Herms embodies the spirit of iconoclastic irreverence, anti-authoritarianism and an unbridled creativity that is, well, timeless. In celebration of his return to New York with a new show of modest and quirky assemblage sculptures at Susan Inglett Gallery, Papermag proudly presents some of his most recent collage works.

George Herms' work is on display at Susan Inglett Gallery through January 21.
