Releases: Aryz – “Death of Beauty” Screenprint

Swamped with Basel Week Miami coverage, we’ve almost missed the release of a new print by the Spanish artist Aryz. His latest self produced and self released print is titled Death of Beauty and we were told only few copies are still left unsold. Though known primarily for his unique large murals, Aryz chose a color pencil study as an image for his latest release. Always up for trying new things, and true to the concept of studies and drawings being the most honest form of […]

Showing: Gee Vaucher – “Introspective” @ Firstsite

Gee Vaucher has recently opened an exhibition entitled Introspective at Firstsite in Colchester. This is the first major show of her art in the UK and it spans the last 50 years of the multi-disciplinary artist’s practice.

Showing: Mode 2 – “Preludes” @ Openspace

Mode 2 opened a new exhibition, Preludes, at Galerie Openspace in Paris last Saturday. The title refers to those moments of heightened anticipation when waiting for something exceptional, like when a beat is about to drop or a B-boy is swaggering onto the stage. The show is divided between four distinct rooms with the work concerned with the ‘universality of music through motion, dancing, writing and visual composition.’ The Mauritian-born artist’s work has its roots in graffiti and strongly references three other elements of hip-hop. However, his […]

Basel Week Miami ’16: NADA Art Fair

If the Art Basel Miami Beach (covered) is considered the main event every year during Basel Week Miami, then NADA Miami Beach is certainly the much-awaited encore (Art Basel typically opens on Weds to VIPs and NADA opens the next morning on Thurs.). It is where new discoveries are more often made, as NADA typically includes younger galleries, with newer programs and fresher artists. It does not focus nearly as much historic or secondary works. In its 14th edition, the fair relocates back to Deuville Beach Resort, from the Fontainebleau Miami Beach […]

Showing: Dustin Yellin – “10Parts” @ Grimm Gallery

Coinciding with the Amsterdam Art Weekend, Grimm Gallery opened Dustin Yellin’s show 10Parts on November 25th. With a twenty-foot long modular glass landscape across ten panels as the showpiece, this is the American artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and will stay on view through the 7th of January. Yellin has been known for creating effective “three dimensional collages or two dimensional sculptures.” By cutting out images from magazines and placing them between glass plates, he achieves a striking effect of depth, but also creates sort […]
