Taylor Anton White’s first solo show is opening at Monica King Contemporary, and he’s starting out hot. The Richmond-based artist seems to revel in the arcane as much as the cutting edge—his work straddles the disparate modes of communication that we rely on, with a healthy dose of humor that is just as cerebral as it is visually enticing. Though his works live on the wall, many are composites that have as much in common with the work of Claes Oldenberg as they do with Chris Ware.

 

Location: Monica King Contemporary, 39 Lispenard Street
Price: Free
Time: Opening reception, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.; Tuesday–Saturday, 11 a.m.–6 p.m.
