Yung Jake

Featured Work on Exhibition A

“Yung Jake was born on the Internet in 2011.” Since earning his BFA from CalArts in 2012, Yung Jake has had two solo exhibitions at Steve Turner Contemporary, where his work will be included in the Space Program group exhibition opening January 10th. His upcoming solo exhibition at the gallery will be announced later in 2015. His music videos synthesize the qualities of hip-hop, technology, fine art, and social media worlds through a digital proficiency that exhibits our web-savvy culture and comments on our era of Internet virality and fame. Yung Jake’s work has been shown at Sundance and Art Berlin Contemporary, and he has performed in Los Angeles at the Hammer Museum, REDCAT Theater, and at MOCA.
