Rife with coyness and wry sensibility, Buying Friends presents the contemporary art collection of Ryan Kortman. Over eighty works by nationally and internationally renowned artists including Adam Scott, Brian Belott, and Sayre Gomez will be seen together for the first time. Within this 36-artist exhibition, elements of humor, horror, and pop culture intertwine with painting, sculpture, and mixed media. These works have such life that they have become the friends who know his closest secrets and furthest dreams.
