Releases: Yoshitomo Nara “The Complete Works” Book Set

Last fall saw the release of a wonderful book to coincide with his Nobody’s Fool retrospective. This fall season sees the release of an even more comprehensive book set from Yoshitomo Nara. Published by Chronicles Books, The Complete Works is the definitive guide to the Japanese art legend’s life work. The two 400-page volumes bound in a fabric slipcase designed by Nara himself feature all of the artist’s prolific output over the span of his career to date, including more than 4,500 paintings, drawings, editions, […]

Showing: Wes Lang – “Life and How to Live It” @ V1 Gallery

In a strong followup to their hosting of Shepard Fairey’s wide-arcing Your Ad Here exhibition, V1 Gallery brings a new body of work from Wes Lang to their Copenhagen space. Last seen showing a series of works, entitled Sittin’ on a Rainbow in conjunction with OHWOW, that were completed during a month long stay at the historic Chateau Marmont, the Brooklyn-based artist expands upon his signature stream of consciousness drawings for his newest exhibition. Including large acrylic and graphite works on paper, as well as a […]

Previews: Takashi Murakami – “Homage to Yves Klein” @ Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin

On the heels of his print retrospective, A History of Editions, over the summer at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Takashi Murakami will be returning to the Paris gallery for an exhibition of new original works, potentially more akin to his expansive Self Portraits show there in 2009. In a distinct departure for the superflat pioneer, Homage to Yves Klein, a reference to the post-war European artist who was considered a leading proponent of Nouveau réalisme, will debut a series of abstract color profile works inspired by […]

Openings: Steve McCurry – “Iconic Photographs” @ Peter Fetterman Gallery

On display through November 30th at Peter Fetterman Gallery is an exhibition of works, entitled Iconic Photographs, from Steve McCurry, which chronicle the famous American photojournaist’s most important images. Of course, taking center stage is Afghan Girl, his most powerful and widely recognized photograph which was prominently featured on a 1985 cover of National Geographic depicting a young, then unidentified refugee in Pakistan escaping the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. His covert coverage of that Soviet war in Afghanistan, in which he disguised himself in native […]

Teasers: KAWS – “FOCUS:KAWS” @ Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

In the wake of Hold the Line last month in Los Angeles, KAWS will upgrade his relentless work ethic to the museum level over the ensuing year. We first saw the Brooklyn-based artist make his museum solo debut last summer at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Connecticut. Then, with a host of museum group exhibitions already under his belt, Jeffrey Deitch selected him for their record setting exhibition Art in the Streets this past spring at MOCA. Now, the surging contemporary artist will have […]

Previews: TrustoCorp – “Life Cycle” @ Opera Gallery (New York)

After a productive summer that saw a range of compelling street art interventions, including the Drive Thru Liposuction Station, faux tabloid magazines, mock reality TV ad disruptions, Hollywood Walk of Shame, as well as a series of their signature simulated signage, TrustoCorp will again move their work indoors for a followup New York gallery show to last year’s successful debut exhibition, An Overt Display of Mischief and Mayhem. Opening Thursday, October 20th, the Brooklyn-based collective will this time target the walls of Opera Gallery with their […]

Previews: Os Gemeos – “Fermata” @ Museu Vale (Brazil)

After completing their fanciful floating installation in Brazil over the summer and doing their mural thing at the Kauno Bienalé in Lithuania last month, the ever-elusive Pandolfo twins are back in their home country again preparing for an exhibition at Museu Vale in Argolas. Despite executing some large scale installations at various venues over the past couple years, including Art in the Streets and Kindergarten this year and Pra quem mora lá, o céu é lá last October, Ferata will mark the first large scale […]

Showing: Tim Barber – “Welcome to Earth” @ Yuka Tsuruno (Tokyo)

On September 24th, Tim Barber unveiled a new body of work at Tokyo-based Yuka Tsuruno. Welcome to Earth sees the established New York-based photographer return to the Japanese gallery, where he showed in February 2010. In a departure from the bold color shots shown at his 2001 exhibition earlier this year in New York, the new series opts instead for a subdued black and white format. Long known as a behind the scenes player in the art world, Barber has slowly but surely made his […]

Auctions: Dreweatts “Urban Contemporary Art” Sale (October)

Last night in London, Dreweatts kicked off an important week of auctions at the major houses with decidedly weak results. At a mere shadow of the £300,800 – 429,400 estimate, their October Urban Contemporary Art Sale realized a total of £166,320 ($258,646) non-inclusive of Buyer’s Premiums, barely half the low end estimate. These lackluster results lie in stark contrast to some of the compelling sales booked during various September auctions, where record results were made at Bonhams Urban Art Sale, MTV:REDEFINE, as well as with […]

Frieze ’11 – Mark Ryden @ Paul Kasmin Gallery

After recently bringing you preview coverage of what Team Gallery has in store for next weekend’s Frieze Art Fair, we now have a (USDA) prime sample of what Paul Kasmin Gallery will be serving up at the London event. Much like the single awe-striking painting brought abroad last year, Mark Ryden has yet again proven his idiosyncratic genius with this newest creation. Marrying his affinity for Honest Abe and his love for painting meat comes The Meat Shop. The two recurring protagonists – the complicated […]
