Openings: “Art From The New World” @ Bristol City Museum

Our friends from the Corey Helford Gallery brought their West Coast Style to the West Country this evening for the much anticipated opening of “Art From The New World” at the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery. It seemed as though UK art fans were highly responsive to some of the wonderful work on show at the preview night, with a packed house drawing in the crowd from the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. Some real visual treats are on offer, from the […]

Eames Inspiration @ Barney’s New York

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.

Openings: Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade – NYC edition

This past weekend, Faile and Bast opened the New York version of their famed “Deluxx Fluxx Arcade” show. The pop-up gallery located in the LES (Lower East Side) of the city was subject to many rumors and discussions during this busy week of art in the Big Apple. Many who thought this show was imported from the recent blockbuster UK arcade show were pleasantly surprised to discover that the artists created a fresh set of machines/installations for this unique vision of one of our favorite childhood past […]

Openings: Rooms @ Scion Space

On Saturday night, AM attended the opening of “Rooms” at Scion Space (previewed). The show, curated by Roger Gastman, certainly brought us back to the old school days of youth.  A wide array of nostalgic goodness such as Laser Tag, VHS lined living rooms, Michael Jordan & Dream Team posters, elementary school desks, bus stops, gothic throwbacks and even an outdoor street/play area were included.  There was literally something for everyone to reminisce on.  The artists: Adam Wallacavage, Bill Daniel, Chris Stain, Dan Monick & […]

Setup / Preview: Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade – NYC edition

Some of you may have heard rumblings about an upcoming Faile x Bast show coming to NYC.  We can finally confirm that it’s true.  Even better is that it’s a pop up show in the Lower East Side (LES) of the Big Apple.  Faile and Bast’s recent arcade show at London’s Lazarides (Rathbone Place) was so unique and popular that it got many US fans in a state of envy.  Originally conceived as a one-off show, Faile and Bast decided to create a brand new […]

Setup: David Choe – “Nothing to Declare” @ LAzarides Beverly Hills

Earlier in the week, we gave you a sneak peek of the show from inside David Choe’s (featured) secret LA studio. But, our friends at LAzarides 90210 also got us a quick look at the install progress in the luxe Beverly Hills space. As you can see from the picture above, David didn’t forget his famous watercolors. Don’t worry, we’ll get you even more pictures at the “Nothing to Declare” opening event but for now, check out more install pics after the jump…

Preview: Souther Salazar Installation for Fumetto Festival

Souther Salazar recently put together a pretty dope installation piece for the upcoming Fumetto Festival in Switzerland (with an assist from Monica Choy). As you can see from his other installs for recent shows in New York & Los Angeles, Souther is quite skilled at creating these whimsical mixed media pieces that seem to jump straight out of one of his paintings. The exhibition will be Souther’s first solo in Europe and will feature larger paintings, comics, sculptures and drawings displayed along with “Alejandro”! More […]

Teaser: JR – “Women Are Heroes” @ Galerie Springmann.Varol

French photographer and activist JR will be opening his first show in Germany soon at the newly opened Gallery Springmann.Varol (formed with AM contributor Selim Varol) in Duesseldorf. The exhibition will be another showing of JR’s project, “Women Are Heroes”, (previously seen in Paris and London), which is also the subject of his film recently nominated for the Golden Camera at the Cannes Festival. From what we hear, the famed street photographer will be preparing a sick wall installation of 128 of his signature “speaker-eyes” […]

Openings: Trustocorp – “An Overt Display of Mischief and Mayhem” @ Brooklyn Brothers Gallery

Trustocorp’s debut show, “An Overt Display of Mischief and Mayhem” (previewed) opened on Thursday night at the Brooklyn Brothers Gallery to an enthusiastic crowd. The response was no doubt related to the collective’s recent street sign posting spree throughout the country, with the map seen above specifically marking the locations New York forming the shape of an overtly raised middle finger. The exhibition also featured the specially branded products that have been inserted surreptitiously onto store shelves, the custom street signs, as well as a […]
