Openings: Robert Williams – “Slang Aesthetics!” @ Fort Wayne Museum of Art

Last month, the Fort Wayne Museum of Art (in association with Thinkspace Gallery) hosted the opening of Robert Williams’ Midwestern debut. Along with some new works, the exhibition introduced to fans in Indiana many of the pieces that others have enjoyed in Los Angeles (covered), Sonoma County, and Santa Fe, (shows which were also entitled SLANG Aesthetics!) Those can make it before the close date of July 23rd will be rewarded with a display of rich and surreal paintings as well as large-scale sculptural works from the champion of the Lowbrow art […]

Showing: Addam Yekutieli (Know Hope) – “It Took Me Till Now to Find You” @ Lazarides

Last month, Lazarides Gallery opened a brand new show by Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope. It Took Me Till Now to Find You is the Israeli artist’s second solo with the gallery, four years following his successful debut (covered). Taking a turn from his previous work, this exhibition is the result of a large project that he has been working on for the last several months. After years of creating a recognizable visual language that universally speaks of real-life situations and human struggle, this particular body of work is more personal and […]

Previews: Gehard Demetz – “Introjection” @ Jack Shainman Gallery

Tonight (April 27th) at 524 West 24th Street location of Jack Shainman Gallery in New York, Gehard Demetz will be opening a new solo show entitled Introjection. The new sculptures from the Northern Italy-based artist are created in his signature fashion of assembling the works from small modular units of wood, kind of like building blocks. Inspired by the title of the show, a psychoanalytic term for when a person unconsciously takes on behaviors or attributes of other people or of the surrounding world, Demetz has created a intriguing selection […]

Showing: Haroshi – “GUZO” @ Nanzuka gallery

Nanzuka Gallery in Tokyo recently opened the long awaited solo by local artist Haroshi (featured). After many successful shows worldwide, Guzo is the first major exhibition for the artist in his hometown. For this showing, the Japanese artist worked on a new concept and created a series of over 20 figurines carved from salvaged skate decks. After trying several different techniques of repurposing old skateboards over the years, Haroshi went back to the original concept of compressing multiple boards together and then using the resulting solid wooden slab as carving material. Through […]

Upcoming: Haroshi – “Guzo” @ Nanzuka

On April 22nd, Haroshi (featured) will be opening a solo show at Nanzuka in Tokyo entitled Guzo. For his first exhibition with the gallery in Shibuya, the locally-based artist has created 20 of his distinctive sculptures made from “salvaged” skate decks. The Japanese artist has long immersed himself in skate culture and has worked with brands like HUF and the skatepark The Berrics. His artwork is just an extension of his love for the sport with this new body of work including what looks to be something new from […]

Upcoming: Damien Hirst – “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable” @ Palazzo Grassi / Punta della Dogana

Opening to the public later today in Venice at Palazzo Grassi & Punta della Dogana is the grand spectacle that is Damien Hirst’s first major show of new work in 10 years. Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable features 190 works fashioned to look like they were salvaged from the ocean floor (including what look like photos of the process). The back story features a tale of lost treasure from all over the world and different time periods that was sunk thousands of years ago, which you have […]

Recap: Luke Chueh – “Blood On My Hands” @ Secret Fresh Gallery

A couple weeks ago in Manila at Secret Fresh Gallery, Luke Chueh (interviewed) successfully opened his first solo show in the Philippines. Entitled Blood On My Hands, the work on display included paintings, customized sculptural pieces of various sizes, limited edition releases, as well as toys. Fans of his work will probably recognize the title as referring to the oftentimes blood soaked paws of his iconic sad bear character, an extension of the Los Angeles-based artist himself. Chueh further explains – “Blood On My Hands is my debut […]

Releases: Daniel Arsham – “Future Relic 07”

Today at 9 am EST, Daniel Arsham will be releasing Future Relic 07, a continuation of his series of limited edition sculptural works. The objects are created with repurposed material and are made to look like remains that future archeologists may discover from our time, hence the name. Often times, similar pieces have taken part in installations for his shows (i.e. Miami ’16) arranged like archaeological dig sites. Up for offer today is a walkman (seen above among the previous six releases), something that is already almost obsolete today. Head […]

A couple weekends ago, the HOCA Foundation in Hong Kong hosted an opening reception for a new showing from Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed) entitled Oh Magic Night. Taking full advantage of the 11,000 exhibition space, the Brooklyn-based artist presented 45 paintings and 10 sculptural works that have been a year in the making. The rich, vibrant, and complex compositions draw from experiences in America as well as from his Japanese ancestry both in subject matter and techniques, some quite impressive in scale.  For those in town, go check it out for yourself before April 9th at Shop […]

Starting March 19th, to coincide with Art Basel Hong Kong, the HOCA Foundation will be presenting a new solo from Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed) featuring “mythological guardians, fictional tableaux and ornate abstraction.” Entitled Oh Magic Night, the exhibition at Shop B104 – 305, The Pulse (No. 28 Beach Road, Repulse Bay) will see the Brooklyn-based artist return to the city-state after an impressive installation at Harbour City Hong Kong in 2014 (covered).
