Will Barras for POW WOW

Following a very robust early February due in part to some very high profile shows opening, things slow a lil’ bit the world over this weekend. Leading the charge will be the big POW WOW event over in Hawaii and DABS MYLA’s debut out in the desert at M Modern in Palm Springs alongside a small showing of new works on paper from the legendary SHAG.

Looking ahead to March, we’ll have major solo shows to look forward to from the likes of Jose Parla, Ian Francis, James Jean, Camille Rose Garcia, Mark Jenkins, Andy Kehoe, Jim Houser, Reuben Rude, Slinkachu, Gary Baseman, and many more. The New Contemporary art machine keeps storming along blazing new trails in the process.
