Showing: Whitney Biennial 2014

The 2014 Whitney Biennial, the final to be housed at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s 945 Madison Avenue location before the museum moves downtown to its new building in Sping 2015, is an assortment of juxtapositions, of massive and miniature, subtle and blatant, high and low. Three different curators—Michelle Grabner (responsible for Dona Nelson’s work seen above), Stuart Comer, Anthony Elms—curated each of the three floors, giving the designated spaces their own voices and trajectories. Below are some highlights of what captivated, intrigued, and generally caught […]

Showing: Berndnaut Smilde – “Antipode” @ Ronchini Gallery

We first introduced you to Berndnaut Smilde’s work last year, when a video was released documenting the Amsterdam-based artist’s amazing process of creating “clouds” indoors.

Armory Week ’14: Scope

One of the satellite fairs we make a point to catch during Armory Week is Scope. Hosting a variety of genres, the event featured a diverse mix of street art, low brow and emerging contemporary art working together as gallerists brought work from artists which you may be familiar with here on AM. One surprise caught at the fair was the appearance of a freight truck door allegedly tagged by Banksy during his high profile artist residency in New York City. It was interesting to catch the trend […]

Armory Week ’14: Armory Art Fair (Part 2)

One of the unique aspect of the Armory Art Show during  Armory Week is the fact that it’s spread out over two piers (92 & 94) on the west side of Manhattan Island with each pier themed differently. Pier 92 housed classic works from the Modern art period. Art from the history books were on display in this focused section of the fair, while the pier 94 housed works from the current contemporary era showing alongside a newly debuted Focus: China area where select gallerists from the […]

Interviews: Moby – “Innocents” @ Project Gallery, Los Angeles

Currently showing in Hollywood at Project Gallery is a show of photographic works by NY transplant and LA evangelist Moby. Ever since moving to the Sunshine State, the man most famous for his musical abilities has been concentrating more on his visual artwork (as well as his architectural appreciation and criticism). He first had a show in 2011 at Kopeikin Gallery and while that series of work included live crowd shots from his concerts, Innocents is a entirely different type of exhibition, featuring staged shoots and […]
