It seems that Agents of Change have gone large again as part of the “Future Everything” Festival. If you didn’t catch the live stream of the AoC’s latest project up in Manchester over the last few days, check out this trailer video produced by the collective documenting some of the installation. A full film is currently under production and should be released in the next few days. Time to get busy Timid! Check out some further pictures from Remi/Rough after the jump.

Sounds like Lisbon has some street artists visiting in the next several months with some pretty exciting things planned. First up are the Brazilian duo Os Gemeos and their show opening up on Monday, May 17th, at the Museu Colecção Berardo. After touring major museums in their home country (here, here, and here), the twins have set their sites on Portugal for their next museum exhibition, this time entitled Pra quem mora lá, o céu é lá’ (To who lives there, heaven is there). Seen above […]
An eclectic art show and event, Aftershock LA, organized by Cafe Mode, is set to open tonight, May 15th at the Royal/T Cafe. The benefit (tickets $25 at the door) is put on to help raise money for Build Change, an international non-profit that designs earthquake-resistant house in developing countries and trains people to build them. A number of artists you will be familiar with if you read AM regularly, like James Jean (interviewed) seen above, will be participating so if you are interested, take […]
After getting off to a great start by holding a grand opening show with French sensation JR (covered), Galerie Springmann.Varol follows it up with another stellar choice – Herakut (interviewed). Although we just got a taste of their recent work, we are looking forward to this solo exhibition by the German street art duo. We’ll have more to follow as we draw closer to the opening on June 11th. Discuss Herakut here.
Haven’t heard from Gaia in while ever since hanging out a little at Art Basel Miami last year, but it looks like he’s participating in two shows in the next couple weeks. First up is a solo at Gallery Heist opening tomorrow night in SF (of which there are some preview pics after the jump). Then, on May 23rd, he’ll be part of the Axis Alley Project in Baltimore for which he put up this sick mural of his “Deny Him Three Times” image – it blends […]
If we were privy to Banksy’s flight itinerary the last several months, this is what we might have seen: UK – Utah – UK -> LA -> SF -> Chicago -> Detroit -> Toronto -> Boston or some combination thereof (strange that he skipped NY). How do we know? Well, he leaves a trail of stencils (of course, we will never know for sure unless they are confirmed). Some of readers may have had Banksy overload ever since his documentary came out at Sundance, but […]
According to his blog, it looks like Conor Harrington (interviewed) is in the Middle East somewhere working on a new project doing what he does best – big complex murals (seen above)! Hopefully we’ll see some of this in Los Angeles as Conor JR, Vhils, and Antony Micallef (interviewed) have next at the Lazarides popup space following the mindblowing David Choe show. We’ll have more to follow on this soon… Discuss Conor Harrington here.
NYC is rocking it yet again this weekend – the big Charming Baker popup show, ROA continues to kill it in Brooklyn, Scott Musgrove returns to LeVine and the Willoughby Windows Project returns to the desolate storefronts of Brooklyn… the Big Apple is just on fire this weekend. Not to be outdone, the UK has the big ‘Art From The New World‘ show from Corey Helford Gallery rocking things up north at the Bristol City Museum and Gallery. Too much good stuff for one person […]
Wow, what a fantastic display at the Barney’s New York windows (Madison Avenue and 61st Street). Expanding on what we mentioned in our overtime article last week, Eames Inspiration is an auction curated by Luna Park and Billi Kid where artists like Aakash Nihilani, Elbow-Toe, Skewville, and Stikman were asked to customize the iconic Eames molded plywood chair to benefit Operation Design.
