Video: Faile – “Temple” @ PortugalArte ’10 (Vernissage TV)

After sharing some photos of the impressive Faile (featured) installation with you recently, we now bring you some video footage from Vernissage TV. Seeing the “Temple” in the context of the surrounding architecture in Praça dos Restauradores, one of the major squares in the center of Lisbon, definitely gives us more of an appreciation of what the Patricks accomplished. Not only did they fully execute a temple in “ruins” with their signature imagery, the Brooklyn duo were able to create something that fit in perfectly […]

Preview: Viva La Revolucion @ MCASD

AM headed down to San Diego on Friday morning to catch the press preview of Viva La Revolucion at MCASD (check out our street coverage here). It was great to wander around the Jacobs Building and get a sneak peek of everything the artists have been working on indoors after seeing all the amazing pieces that have been popping up on the streets of the city. Pedro Alonzo, the exhibition’s curator, led a talk around the museum and spoke about the different artists and their work. Shepard Fairey, David Ellis, Stephan […]

Preview / Installation: AJ Fosik & Bill McRight – “Count Back From Nothing” @ David B. Smith Gallery

David B. Smith Gallery weighs in this month with yet another stellar looking exhibition opening Friday, July 16th with the pairing of sculptors AJ Fosik and Bill McRight in the two person show “Count Back From Nothing”. Fosik’s three dimensional animalia sculptures have jumped off the walls at us here at AM on many occasions before, and we’re always excited to see what this artist brings with each set of new work. The layering of found wood and other elements that goes into each of […]

Openings: Jim Houser – “The Homebody” @ Subliminal Projects

AM stopped by Subliminal Projects last Saturday night to check out the new body of work from Jim Houser. “The Homebody” (previewed) was everything we expected – witty installations, a packed gallery, paintings full of patterns, symbols and codewords. What was unexpected though was an install that played an instrumental track – a soundtrack the artist created for the exhibition. Also, we felt that that clustering of paintings and art objects through out the space was interesting and nicely done. More pics after the jump…

Jeff Koons Installation @ Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital09

Jeff Koons and RxArt has teamed up to make the hospital a less intimidating space for young patients, hopefully helping to soothe fears and brighten moods. The world-renowned pop artist has transformed the usually sterile CT scan room with his familiar icons – including the Balloon Dog, Hanging Heart, and Monkeys. Known for being one of the most well-paid artists today, Koons generously provided the work with no artist fee. In addition, Kiehl’s also provided support for the project. Kudos to RxArt, Kiehl’s and Jeff […]

Preview / Installation: Jim Houser – “The Homebody” @ Subliminal Projects

Philadelphia based artist Jim Houser is opening up a solo show Saturday night, July 10th, at the gallery that OBEY built – Subliminal Projects. As you can see, Houser is already hard at work setting up multiple installations throughout different rooms in the Echo Park space. Expect the new body of work entitled “The Homeboy” to include paintings of the usual whimsical characters, patchworks of symbolism & poetic code words, and mixed media works.  Also, for the first time, Houser will be releasing his soundtrack […]

Openings: Lucy McLauchlan – “Together…” @ Lazarides

Lucy McLauchlan’s latest solo show “Together…” is currently gracing the walls of the Rathbone Place gallery of Lazarides, and last week AM went along to the opening night to see the new body of work. McLauchlan has put together some intriguing installations around her work in the past and this element was probably the part of the show we were looking forward to seeing the most. Lucy brought a collection of junk items to the gallery comprising of paint cans, cassette tapes, discarded bottles and […]

Openings: KAWS @ Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum

Yesterday, AM attended the exhibition opening of Brooklyn-based artist and designer Brian Donnelly, a.k.a KAWS, at the The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT. The first ever solo museum exhibition for the famed urban contemporary artist was nothing short of inspiring. Mixing one part retrospective and one part fresh works created a dynamic survey of a career that has influenced a range of design and popular culture. From his humble street/graffiti origins to graphic/vinyl design work to his current relevance in the world of […]

Video: Mike Stilkey x Hurley Timelapse

After seeing pictures of Mike Stilkey’s (interviewed) latest book installation coming together for his current solo show, “Reminiscent” at Hurley’s new )( Space Gallery in Costa Mesa, Ca. it left us wondering just how he puts such an installation together. When you begin to analyze the logistics of working with the spines of 5,000 books as your canvas, it got us to thinking just how the books are selected and assembled, and how this giant Jenga puzzle doesn’t fall over! All our questions are answered […]

Teaser / Installation: Matt Haber “The Little Voyageurs” @ The Bldg.

Brooklyn based artist Matt Haber opens a brand new solo show this week at The Bldg in Covington, Kentucky. We’ve followed Matt’s work for a number of years with his regular showings at Jonathan Levine in New York. However, this is his first showing in the Bluegrass state, and the latest in an exciting line of new contemporary exhibitions The Bldg have been bringing over the last year, following the UK’s Prefab77 and everyone’s favorite monochrome dynamic duo, The London Police. Haber’s folk art inspired […]
