Openings: Adam Wallacavage – “Dreamhome Heartaches” @ Corey Helford

It looks like last month’s opening of Adam Wallacavage’s (interviewed) show at Corey Helford Gallery attracted many of the city’s artistic community. Obviously enamored by his chandeliers, lamps, and other adventurous lighting options, the audience packed into the Culver City show space to take in his and Henry Lewis‘ new body of work. Take a look at some of the pics after the jump. Today is also the last day of the show so stop by if you haven’t had the chance to yet.

Streets: D*Face (Los Angeles) – Part I

We stopped by Culver City today to check out the near complete mural D*Face (featured) is painting on the side of the Corey Helford Gallery, site of his new show, Going Nowhere Fast, opening this Saturday night.  As you can see, D is exploring melding his imagery with elements of Lichtenstein’s work, which we also saw in our earlier studio visit. We will certainly be looking forward to seeing more of this fresh new direction at the opening and you can also expect more coverage […]

Preview: “Quentin vs. Coen” @ Bold Hype Gallery

Following up on the fun and success of last year’s Bad Dads: A Tribute to Wes Anderson (covered), our friends at Spoke Art will continue to marry their love of iconic filmmakers with clever group shows, this time pitting cult heroes Quentin Tarantino and the Coen Brothers against one another in a battle-royale style art throwdown.

Video: Tim Barber Interview with Camerabag.tv

Focal point of OHWOW’s hugely successful, and immensely compelling, exhibition last fall, Untitled Photographs (covered), Tim Barber recently sat down with Camerabag.tv for a insightful interview. Shedding some light on his background and inspiration, the New York-based photographer spoke about how his parents served as the impetus for his interest in photography, his fond memories traveling the world with good friend Ryan McGinley, the historical origins of the tinyvices online gallery he founded, and his affinity for rudimentary point and shoot cameras over expensive DSLRs […]

Ed Ruscha – “Psycho Spaghetti Westerns” @ Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills

We previously posted a video of the Ed Ruscha exhibition currently on view at Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, but we felt this landmark show deserved much better than that on AM.  Here are actual still images of the paintings by the legendary Los Angeles artist.  Psycho Spaghetti Westerns contains Ruscha’s examination of the “effects of time on landscape” and is his first solo show in his hometown in twelve years.  It is up until April 9, so if you have a chance to see […]

Ai Weiwei MIA in Wake of Plans to Establish Satellite Studio in Berlin

Less than a week after his announcement to set up a studio in Berlin, China’s most well known artist and activist Ai WeiWei has effectively gone missing, with the clock now well past 36 hours without communication and French and German leaders calling for his release. Long an outspoken thorn in the side of the Chinese Government, with the plug being pulled on his massive retrospective by the Chinese gallery for being “too politically sensitive” as the most recent attempt to quell his voice, Mr. […]

Openings: Lucas Price – ‘The Friends of Tony Romanoff’ @ Pure Evil Gallery

It was said that The Friends of Tony Romanoff was to be curated by Lucas Price, but the intriguing press release we read for this show was so ambiguous that AM didn’t quite know what to expect. The exhibition, which opened last Thursday, as we kind of expected, turned out to be a collection of new work authored solely by Lucas. Pure Evil Gallery played host to the exhibition, which was a refreshing change to see Lucas’ more contemporary side emerging, based around mixed media […]

Preview: KMNDZ – “The Heaviest” @ Fifty24SF

Last week AM attended dual receptions to celebrate the launch of Agnès B’s Howard St. flagship store  in New York’s SoHo district. The dazzling concept space will be known as  “Galerie Boutique” which also serves as a gallery to exhibit some of legendary designer’s favorite artists.
