Upcoming: Mark Jenkins – “BRD SHT” @ Lazinc

After a provocative installation on the rooftops of London back in March bringing attention to mental health issues and suicide, Mark Jenkins (interviewed) will be returning for an encore at Lazinc. From the looks of things, the American artist has been preparing inside as well as outside for his solo on May 25th (public opening), including placing one of this signature hooded figures fishing for art collectors with a framed picture of a worm in front of the Mayfair gallery. Entitled BRD SHT, the exhibition will include nine sculptural pieces, […]

Showing: KAWS – “SEEING/WATCHING” Sculptures (China)

With the releases of associated products in recent days, fans of KAWS had been eagerly awaiting the unveiling of his SEEING/WATCHING duo of sculptures in China. Perched high above ground level on the Changsha IFS Tower in Hunan, the recognizable BFF and Companion characters from the Brooklyn-based artist were finally introduced to the public last week and sit back to back on the edge of a rooftop terrace. The site-specific installation was produced in collaboration with AllRightsReserved and is accompanied by panels of KAWS’ imagery as well as a display of his […]

Openings: Mark Drew – “What Goes On?” @ Spoke Art (New York)

Earlier this month, Spoke Art’s New York location hosted the opening of Mark Drew’s new solo show. Entitled What Goes On?, the new body of work continues the Tokyo-based artist’s signature juxtaposition of Peanuts comics and 90s rap lyrics. The mashup of hip hop bars with Snoopy & gang by the Australian artist takes two presumably familiar elements for the viewer and generates a new refreshing point of view and interpretation. Rounding out the exhibition was a dog house entrance as well as a couple installations featuring items like Snoopy paraphernalia and old […]

Openings: BEYOND THE STREETS (Los Angeles)

Last weekend, an expansive collection of paintings, sculptures, and site-specific installations was revealed at BEYOND THE STREETS in Los Angeles (1667 N Main St). Curated by Roger Gastman, the show featured a roster of over 100+ artists working with 40,000+ sq. ft. of industrial indoor and outdoor space spurring them to produce some large and impressive works for the event. In addition to the shots we have already showed you in a preview here, we now have a many more pics to share with you. Make sure you stop […]

Previews: BEYOND THE STREETS (Los Angeles)

On May 6th, BEYOND THE STREETS will open its doors in Los Angeles (1667 N Main St), an immersive survey of graffiti and street art, the likes of which haven’t been seen since Art in the Streets (covered) in 2011. This is not surprisingly seeing as Roger Gastman was an associate curator of that show back then at the MOCA, and will be the main curator of this new exhibition. Working with a roster of over 100+ artists, 40,000+ sq. ft. of industrial indoor and outdoor space has been converted […]

Upcoming: BEYOND THE STREETS (Los Angeles) – Curated by Roger Gastman

In 2011, Roger Gastman was an associate curator of Art in the Streets, the first major US museum (at MOCA) survey of graffiti and street art. As one of the world’s foremost authorities on these art forms and movements, he returns to curate a groundbreaking follow-up to the show, called BEYOND THE STREETS. The spectacular exhibition will include over 100 artists (including perhaps one very big surprise one?) showcasing paintings, sculpture, photography, and installations (including a re-creation, in partnership with adidas Skateboarding, of the famous Venice Pavilion), on more […]

Openings: JR x Massimo Bottura – “Le Reffettorio Paris”

Last month, Le Reffettorio Paris opened its doors with the help of famed chef Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana and artist JR (interviewed). Housed in the crypts of the historic Madeleine church in Paris’s 8th arrondissement, the concept behind the space fits nicely with the setting. Taking surplus ingredients from some of the city’s finest restaurants, Bottura and his team aim to serve 100 of the most socially vulnerable every night with a multi course meal – an upscale soup kitchen if you will. For their part, JR and Prune Nourry created […]

Upcoming: Daniel Arsham – “Character Study” @ Morán Morán Gallery

Tonight in Los Angeles, Morán Morán Gallery will be opening a solo show from Daniel Arsham entitled Character Study. The title likely references the first part of the New York-based artist’s new body of work, the large scale recreations of his childhood collection of cartoon character patches that adorned his backpack. Created with plaster and in white, as is the formerly color-blind artist’s practice, the pieces which amazingly look to have the texture of cloth, are dusted with pigment chiaroscuro style. Arsham explains – “When I began delving into […]

Showing: Edoardo Tresoldi – “Etherea” @ Coachella Festival

Over the weekend, the first set of visitors to the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival were treated to a majestic new installation from Edoardo Tresoldi. Entitled Etherea, the site specific piece for the event’s Arts Section is a continuation of the Italian artist’s work with wire sculptures, although this one is certainly his biggest artwork to date. The three transparent sculptures are inspired by Neoclassical and Baroque architecture, measuring 36, 54, and 72 feet in height. Discuss Edoardo Tresoldi here.

Releases: KAWS – “SEEING/WATCHING” Merchandise

Ahead of the May 7th reveal of his upcoming SEEING/WATCHING permanent art installation (seen in below) curated by AllRightsReserved at Changsha International Finance Square in China, KAWS will be releasing an assortment of associated merchandise. This impressive project from the Brooklyn-based artist will bring together eight meter tall bronze sculptures of his BFF and Companion figures, both of which are linked together as limited edition plushes in what will headline this latest release. These plushes as well as T-shirts, keychains, glass sets and tote bags will also be available […]
