This fall the Brant Foundation Art Study Center in Greenwich, Connecticut, will play host to an exhibition of work by the late Los Angeles–based artist Jason Rhoades, who is perhaps best known for large installations featuring neon texts, bounties of electrical cords, furniture, all manner of other objects, and often rather explicit references to sex.

The show at the art center, which was founded by Peter Brant, who owns the parent company of ARTnews, will run from November of this year until March 2018 and feature works from the Brant Collection as well as loans.

Rhoades died in 2006, at the age of 41, of heart failure. Well-respected during his lifetime, his star has continued to shine in the years since his death. In 2014, the Institute of Contemporary art in Philadelphia presented a Rhoades retrospective that traveled to the Kunsthalle Bremen in Germany and the Baltic Centre in Gateshead, England.

The Brant Foundation Art Study Center is currently home to a survey of work by the Canadian Steven Shearer, which is on view through April 14. Another exhibition is planned to run between May and September, but its subject has not yet been finalized.
