Today marked the official opening of the Art Basel main fair at the Miami Beach Convention Center, but yesterday was the exclusive First Choice & Vernissage where a majority of the high profile buying action took place.

AM recently paid a visit to Faile’s Brooklyn hideout to take a closer look at their collaborative project with Bast - a nostalgic arcade-based exhibition entitled Deluxx Fluxx. Set to open tonight in South Beach (1604 Washington Blvd.), with sponsorship by Perrier, this marks version 3.0 for this mind blowing showcase of old school arcade games, foosball, and now they’ve added specially crafted pinball machines to bring back the sensory addictions of the 70s & 80s. (Check out version 1.0 in London & version 2.0 in NYC) […]
Just this passed September 11th, New York-based artist Daniel Arsham and music producer Pharrell Williams unveiled their first collaborative endeavor at The Standard East Village Hotel in New York City. The result of their joint venture materialized as four re-creations of a Casino MT-500 keyboard, which is the first instrument on which Pharrell ever created music on. Like previous work that Arsham has done, the sculptures (made from different materials which included crystal, volcanic ash, and steel) are created to look like found artifacts that […]
Hailing from New York, Julia Chiang immerses the Midwest this fall with her work via Kansas City’s Bill Brady Gallery. Upon entry to the showspace, you are welcomed by several large “burst” paintings (seen in our studio visit) drawing you directly into the voided spaces within them. Chiang also shows off some new pieces consisting of large scale “fence” paintings alongside her more familiar glazed ceramic “drops” surrounding the space like altars. Julia keeps your attention and eyes confused with “A Word, Your Word #1,2” where she […]

Last weekend, Aurel Schmidt opened a new showing in New York at 200 Stanton Street that will run through the rest of the month. Entitled Fruits, the body of work on display revisits some of the provocative imagery she is known for with a series of hybrids made from plant and human body parts. With Jeffrey Deitch on hand, attendees took time to wrap their minds around Schmidt’s mutant creations. Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Aurel Schmidt here.
In anticipation for the second exhibition at Galerie Perrotin’s New York outpost, we bring you an inside look at the art party of the year (thus far).

Emmanuel Perrotin, known for throwing some of the most creative and festive events, transformed the famed venue into an incredible state fair […]

It’s been a while since we caught up (her pop-up project at the New Museum) with New York artist Julia Chiang.

With his exhibition Palimpsest at Harvard’s Reischauer Institute (covered) still on view, the always ambitious Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed) opens The Standard Rendez-Vous at Zidoun & Bossuyt in Luxembourg.

As a centerpiece, a giant triptych fills an entire wall of the gallery, with each of the three panels filled from edge to edge with explosive color and patterning. The show also contains several shaped paintings, which take […]
