AARON GARBER-MAIKOVSKA

COUNTER MOVES

September 8 - October 20, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8, 2012, 6-9pm


Aaron Garber-Maikovska will take over the entire gallery and back room space at Greene Exhibitions to create his immersive experience Counter Moves. Drawing on the vast body of his artistic practice, which began as a youth in his parent’s home in Berkley, CA. Garber-Maikovska will use video, painting, drawing, and installation to promote creative play in the untapped venues of the viewers' daily lives. Artist-led practices and performances of these techniques will occur throughout the run of the exhibition.
 
Born in 1978 in Washington, DC, and moving to Berkeley, CA soon after, Garber-Maikovska became a stand-out soccer player as a teenager. Since his entire name could not be fit on the back of his jersey, he adopted the surname "GM." His secondary education took place under Doug Hall at San Francisco Art Institute and Paul McCarthy at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in fine art. In 2010, Aaron held the exhibition capezio at LTD Los Angeles. Since then his video and performance work has featured in various group exhibitions including The Unfinished at Greene Park Gallery, Bigzone - Everything #1 at JB Jurve and Unblinking Eye at Kavi Gupta, Berlin.
 
Counter Moves will be the artist’s first solo exhibition as Aaron Garber-Maikovska. Aaron currently resides in Los Angeles, the base for most of his production, with his wife of 1 year, Angeline Shiley.
