Streets: Pejac (London)

Precisely one month ahead of his upcoming London solo debut, Pejac has revealed his latest series of public interventions around the city. Titled Downside Up, these simple and striking installations are once again proving his ability to create an unexpected twist on common things and reality in general. The new sculptural series consists of old shoes “hanging” from light poles, signs, or other structures in an urban environment. However, Pejac’s shoes defy gravity and hang as if down is up and up is down. Like […]

Featuring 88 projects from around the globe, this sector included large works by such names as Anish Kapoor, Ai Weiwei, Tracey Emin, Frank Stella, Paul Mccarthy, James Turrell, […]

Coinciding with the start of Basel Week Switzerland, an exclusive opening night on June 12th was held for KAWS’ latest solo showing.

Showing: Geoff McFetridge – “The Quiet Of Not Listening” @ V1 Gallery

V1 Gallery is currently showing Geoff McFetridge’s The Quiet Of Not Listening. As his third solo with the gallery in Copenhagen, this exhibition features nine paintings on canvas and five large drawings. Following his signature style of portraying mundane imagery through a flat, minimalist approach, a few of the new works include images of folding chairs. Drawn from his memory, it wasn’t until recently that Mcfetridge realized his images were actually incorrect. Ubiquitous and specific to western culture, the chairs on his paintings are both pure and wrong, but they represent […]
