MGM Resorts Announces Japanese-American Artist Parker Ito as Bellagio’s Next Resident

MGM Resorts Announces Japanese-American Artist Parker Ito

as Bellagio’s Next Resident

Parker Ito, 6/6 (Detail), 2018, Oil on linen, 80 x 60 inches.

 

Ito to Create Series of Still Lifes Inspired by Experiences in Las Vegas and Personal Background

Emerging Japanese-American artist Parker Ito is the new resident of the Artist Studio at Bellagio, where guests have the opportunity to observe first-hand as the artist’s works come to life. Now through June 23, Ito will produce five major paintings inspired by his experiences in Las Vegas and subtly influenced by his Japanese heritage. These innovative works, paired with Ito’s unconventional studio practice utilizing photography, painting and printmaking techniques, will encourage viewers to reconsider familiar images of the Las Vegas cityscape.

As a consummate user and producer of media, Ito creates paintings, sculptures and video works by drawing upon his extensive experience online as both artist and audience. Known for generating networked bodies of work, Ito spreads ideas and imagery in a way that reflects the relentless impressions that might be generated in one’s experience. As art critic and curator Nicolas Bourriard writes of his work, “The works of … Parker Ito have no origin, no source code. They are made in the form of circuits – they proliferate and surge.”

During his residency at Bellagio, Ito will reimagine traditional still lifes placed in conversation with the cityscape of Las Vegas as seen from multiple MGM Resorts properties, including Bellagio, Mandalay Bay, The Signature at MGM Grand and Circus Circus. Exhibiting the qualities of objects found in Dutch vanitas still life painting, Ito’s selection of foregrounded objects will function as metaphorical imagery both for the human experience and his own. The items presented flourish and fade, much like the decomposing flowers and other organic objects regularly featured in historical still lives. The surrounding panorama of Las Vegas will serve as a backdrop for his compositions, creating personal moments contrasted against the vast, twinkling expanse of the city.

 

Having grown up as a fourth-generation Japanese American, or Yonsei, in northern Orange County, Calif., Ito’s works will also subtly nod to Japanese culture and Ito’s diverse personal experiences. The paintings will address issues surrounding assimilation and cultural rediscovery by juxtaposing traditional Japanese motifs with Western American landscapes.

 

Ito will photograph arrangements of objects in a living room-like setting with the use of an outdated digital camera. From these images, he will use a transfer method he established to transform these image-based works into large-scale paintings within the studio, resembling an updated version of the solvent transfers pioneered by Robert Rauschenberg in the 1950s and 1960s.

 

Tarissa Tiberti, Executive Director of Art & Culture for MGM Resorts, said, “Parker Ito is an incredible artist and we are thrilled to watch as he brings an entirely new perspective to the beauty of Las Vegas’ landscape through his artistic practice. While the vantage point from each property may be familiar, the view from Ito’s eyes will entice guests to enjoy a longer gaze from their window during their stay with us.”

 

Guests are invited to view Ito’s work at the Artist Studio at Bellagio from 2 – 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday with an opportunity to interact with the artist from 2 – 4 p.m. The Artist Studio is located adjacent to Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (BGFA).

Additionally, during Art Basel in Switzerland, from June 13 – 16, the MGM Resorts Lounge will feature three works completed by Ito during his residency at Bellagio.

About Parker Ito

PARKER ITO is a fourth generation Japanese American, or Yonsei ( 四世 ), living and working in Los Angeles. Ito’s work takes the form of installation, painting, sculpture, video, drawing, websites and printmaking. Materially inventive and heavy with processes that might corrupt or enhance, he produces impressions of the things around him. Ito assembles cultural markers, ornaments, vistas and consumables. He pushes these arrangements through technologies – including screens, cameras, printers, hand-painting – and the atmospheric effects of these processes behave like the binding substance of the artist’s consciousness. Bracing all of the artist’s output is the structure of the network. Ito gives focus to the specific conditions of making and exhibiting art, as well as the extended network that his practice traces. www.parkerito.com

 

Forthcoming solo exhibitions by the artist include at Sifang Art Museum, Nanjing (2019); and Château Shatto, Los Angeles (2020). Recent solo exhibitions by the artist include CONDO, hosted by Sadie Coles HQ, London; P, Primary, Nottingham; P, Team Gallery, New York; #17, Beijing Art Now Gallery, Beijing; A Lil Taste of Cheeto in the Night, Château Shatto, Los Angeles; Maid in Heaven / En Plein Air in Hell, White Cube, London. Previous group exhibitions include Welcome Too Late, Kunsthal Charlottenburg, Copenhagen; LA Dreams, CFHILL, Stockholm; Bodacious, Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver; Times Museum, Guangzhou; Co-Workers, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; TERRAFORMERS, Bonington Gallery, Nottingham; The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Yarat Contemporary Art Space, Baku; Wet Paint, Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; and Everythings, Andrea Rosen, New York. In 2012, Ito’s work was exhibited at the NTT InterCommunication Center (ICC) in Tokyo.

 

Ito’s work is in major public and private collections around the world, including the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris; Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; Getty Research Institute; Sifang Art Museum, Nanjing; Yuz Museum, Shanghai; Sandretto Foundation, Turin; Aishti Foundation, Beirut; and PCP Collection, Taipei.

Sip or Steep? Hazel Coffee | Cocktail
Pours into Mandalay Bay Early 2019

Resort’s transformed lounge to offer indulgent sips from dawn until dusk

From coffee brewing to cocktail toasting, Hazel Coffee | Cocktail at Mandalay Bay will offer a new experience for night owls and early birds alike. Arriving in early 2019, the social hub will welcome guests with live entertainment, craft cocktails and daily selections of specialty coffee and tea.

“Hazel will be a central gathering place at the resort,” said Mandalay Bay Vice President of Food and Beverage Emmanuel Cornet. “Whether looking for a cup of coffee in the morning or an evening venue for great music and cocktails with friends or colleagues, all guests will find what they seek at Hazel.”

COCKTAILS
Created by MGM Resorts International Executive Director of Beverage Craig Schoettler, Hazel’s cocktail menu will offer a juxtaposition of classic cocktails and modern variations. For traditionalists, the time-honored Manhattans, Old Fashioned, Martinis and beyond will be available, while more adventurous cocktail connoisseurs can choose a unique twist on a beloved favorite. In the evening, a selection of complementary bar snacks also will be available.

COFFEE
As part of the lounge’s morning coffee program, caffeine-lovers can fuel up with specialty espresso beverages made with LAMILL COFFEE, an award-winning, premium specialty coffee roaster headquartered out of Los Angeles. Using top-of-the-line espresso machines, espresso beverages will be as visually appealing as they are delicious with decorative latte art atop each for a personal touch. Guests interested in hearty options to complement their beverage may order from a curated menu of in-house breakfast and lunch offerings such as parfaits, sandwiches, salads and more.

DESIGN
Designed by Bishop Pass, Hazel will serve as the resort’s “living room” where guests can relax on gold lounge sofas, green velvet chairs or cobalt-blue Chesterfield banquettes. Bold jewel tones of deep blues, vibrant greens and chartreuse will brighten the space, while touches of brass, dark wood and antique mirrors provide an old-world European feel. Reminiscent of charming boutique hotel lobbies, a large marble-top bar with chestnut leather armrests will look onto a brass-shelved liquor display illuminated by matching brass fixtures.

Hazel Coffee | Cocktail will open in the resort’s former Orchid Lounge space, located near the hotel lobby, just off the casino floor.

Additional details on the concept will be made available in the coming months.

Shark Reef Aquarium’s Giant Pacific Octopus Predicts Croatia to Win Soccer’s International Championship Final Sunday, July 15

Shark Reef Aquarium’s Giant Pacific Octopus Predicts
Croatia to Win Soccer’s International Championship Final
Sunday, July 15

 It’s official. The Giant Pacific Octopus at Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay reentered the world of sports predictions earlier this morning when he picked Croatia to defeat France in Sunday morning’s international soccer final.

The unnamed, one-year-old male octopus weighs an estimated 20 pounds and has tentacles roughly three feet long. The octopus selected between two 8” x 8” acrylic boxes, both containing his daily breakfast meal, placed inside his tank. Each box was labeled with one of the competing country’s flags. After 42 minutes of intense deliberation, the octopus’ prediction disagrees with the MGM Resorts Sports Books as they have France as the slight favorite as of Friday morning.

ABC has enjoyed an impressive career to date. Their debut album The Lexicon of Love was released in 1982 and went straight to No. 1 in the UK album charts. Showcasing the soulful voice of lead singer Martin Fry with such hits songs “Poison Arrow” and “The Look Of Love” and produced by the legendary Trevor Horn, the album was voted by many as the best British album of the decade.

Modern English band members Robbie Grey (vocals), Mick Conroy (bass), Gary McDowell (guitar) and Steven Walker (keyboards) first reunited during a 2010 tour before accepting an invitation to re-record “I Melt With You” for Mark Pellington’s film of the same name. The band’s most recent album is Take Me to the Trees.”

Tony Lewis is the lead vocalist and bassist of The Outfield, the British pop group responsible for massive hits such as “Your Love” and “All The Love.” Their debut album Play Deep, released in 1985, achieved triple platinum status and reached the Top Ten on U.S. album charts

Limahl won the hearts of millions of teenage girls in the ‘80s as the lead singer of Kajagoogoo who stormed to the top of the charts with “Too Shy” and “Kaja Mania.” After two more top 20 hits with Kajagoogoo, Limahl and the band parted ways which lead to another global hit “The NeverEnding Story” from the film of the same name.

Annabella Lwin, at the age of 13, was one of the most popular vocalists in the early ‘80s as the original member and lead singer of Bow Wow Wow. Lwin was featured on such hits as “I Want Candy,” “Do U Wanna Hold Me?,” “Go Wild In The Country” and “C30, C60, C90, Go!”
