Openings: “Momentum” @ Lebasse Projects (Chinatown)

Last weekend, AM stopped by to take an advanced look at the new LeBasse Projects location in historic Chinatown. Featuring the curatorial touch of Christine Le, one half of the husband and wife team behind the LA-based gallery, the show includes some female talent that has caught her eye like Seonna Hong, Yumika Kayukawa, Hera, Laura Ball, Melissa Haslam, and more. Make sure you attend the official opening on April 9th to see for yourself. More photos courtesy of Brandon Shigeta after the jump…

Streets: Conor Harrington x Vhils (Lisbon)

Reminiscent of the fantastic JR x Vhils collaboration we witnessed in LA during the Eurotrash invasion last year, it looks like Vhils has busted out his tools again and has hooked up with another street artist for a project. As you know from our feature his recent piece in Lisbon, Conor Harrington’s (interviewed) was in town and apparently also put up this piece with some of Vhils’ special techniques although the effects weren’t as evident as the JR collab, perhaps since it was not as […]

Showing: Delta – “Subduction Zones” @ Muziekgebouw Concert Hall (Amsterdam)

It looks like Boris Tellegen aka Delta has decided to go big since we last saw his work at the Elms Lester show in 2009. These new large-scale floating sculptural works from the Dutch artist are currently on display at Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw Concert Hall and are collectively entitled Subduction Zones, placed to welcome the World Minimal Music Festival. More photos after the jump…

Teaser: “I Love Japan More Than Ever” Silent Auction / Film (New York)

As the tragedy in Japan continues to unfold, there continues to be an outpouring of support from around the world with the artists being no exception. AM continues our look at some select projects (more here) that have caught our eye and hope that you take some time to show your love as well. I Love Japan More Than Ever is one of these charity events, a silent auction and film set to open on March 31st in Brooklyn. It is certainly worth a look […]

Videos: Mars-1 & Doze Green Collaboration

These sorts of artistic collaborations always interest us here at AM, especially where we can see it happen in person like the Art Jams at Baby Tattooville (2008, 2009, 2010). Mars-1 (featured) is certainly not new working synergistically with other artists (Mars-1 x Oliver Vernon x Damon Soule), and the results of painting with Doze Green is no less spectacular. Take a look at the footage above as each express their thoughts behind the project. Hearing Doze talk about his inspirations – “renaissance paintings and […]

Preview: Jonathan Viner – “COMPUTER SCIENCE” @ Sloan Fine Art

Next Wednesday evening, March 30th, Sloan Fine Art will play host to Jonathan Viner’s new body of work. The show entitled “COMPUTER SCIENCE” harkens back to Viner’s childhood when he spent countless hours with their father at the robotics lab at the New York Institute of Technology and the “mental portraits” of the people he interacted with in his memory. More preview images after the jump.  Also take a look at a special installation from Elizabeth McGrath in the project room.

Streets: Conor Harrington (Lisbon)

Lisbon continues to be a hotbed for street activity recently (Brad Downey, Vhils), and it appears according to Stick2Target, a new piece from Conor Harrington’s (interviewed) has popped up. Haven’t seen any indoor work from the Cork born painter since the brilliant Hell’s Half Acre show (covered), so we are certainly curious as to what’s he been working on (mentioned here). More detailed pics of this piece after the jump…

Videos: Tim Biskup Installation @ The Standard (Hollywood)

Tim Biskup recently painted over the constantly changing art installation, The Box, in the lobby of The Standard, Hollywood. The glass encased chamber behind the front desk has hosted the work of many artists over the years and usually includes an attractive female inside as part of the installation which certainly fits in a city obsessed with voyeurism and exhibitionism. Take a look at the footage above as Tim turns the box into a giant monster mouth as he explains his views on the attractiveness of […]

Showing: Robert Longo – “God Machines” @ Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac

Robert Longo is currently showing at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris, and we are completely in awe of his the size, detail, and complexity of these new drawings. The centerpiece of this exhibition, entitled God Machines, is the installation of three large pieces featuring some of holiest places for the world’s largest monotheistic religions – Mecca in Saudi Arabia, St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Also on display will be other studies and works of some of his favorite subjects […]
