Frieze ’11 – Mark Ryden @ Paul Kasmin Gallery

After recently bringing you preview coverage of what Team Gallery has in store for next weekend’s Frieze Art Fair, we now have a (USDA) prime sample of what Paul Kasmin Gallery will be serving up at the London event. Much like the single awe-striking painting brought abroad last year, Mark Ryden has yet again proven his idiosyncratic genius with this newest creation. Marrying his affinity for Honest Abe and his love for painting meat comes The Meat Shop. The two recurring protagonists – the complicated […]

Previews: Frieze London ’11 – Ryan McGinley @ Team Gallery

Running from Thursday, October 13th to Sunday, October 16th over in London, Frieze 2011 is primed to kick back into action next week in Regent’s Park. Traditionally one of stronger perennial fairs, which will also see a New York version for the first time in May of next year, Team Gallery has become one of the compelling staples at the UK event. Much like last year, the New York gallery will be bringing some brand new work from their New York-based photographer Ryan McGinley. In […]

Art Platform ’11: RETNA @ New Image Art

Building on the momentum of high profile projects he has been linked to recently (see Chanel, Heal the Bay, VistaJet, and WeHo Library), street calligraphist RETNA (featured) brought his work to Art Platform over the weekend. Showing with New Image Art, the LA-based writer shared various monochromatic large scale works on paper and canvas with fairgoers. More photos after the jump taken for us by Carlos Gonzalez.

PULSE Los Angeles ’11: First Look

With Art Platform in town, the PULSE art fair also decided to hold their Los Angeles event the same weekend. Featuring a mix established and emerging galleries, attendees are giving a nice variety of young and veteran artists.  Also associated with the fair is Pulse Projects, which included installations from participants such as Mike Stilkey, Jen Stark, and Kevin Cyr along with murals from Greg Lamarche and Dave Kinsey (covered). More photos after the jump from Carlos Gonzalez…

Previews: PULSE Los Angeles ’11 – David B. Smith

After previewing three booths (here, here, and here) that we are looking forward to later today at the PULSE art fair, we have one final suggestion for those attending. Head over to check out the offerings from David B. Smith as he will be bringing works from Kris Lewis, Gregory Euclide, and Paul Jacobsen. The expressive new works from Lewis, unique three-dimensional paintings from Euclide, and hyper-realistic renderings from Jacobsen should round out your fair-going experience nicely. More preview images after the jump…

Tauba Auerbach Keynote Speaker @ The NY Art Book Fair (Queens)

The NY Art Book Fair is set to kick off tomorrow, September 30th running through October 3rd. Generously organized again by non-profit Printed Matter, the sixth iteration of the free and open to the public event will see more than 200 exhibitors, cementing itself as the world’s premier event for artists’ books, contemporary art catalogs and monographs, art periodicals, and artist zines. The gravity defying architecture of MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, Queens is reason enough to attend. However, as an even greater incentive this […]

Previews: PULSE Los Angeles ’11 – Nate Frizzell @ LeBasse Projects

Continuing our coverage of the inaugural PULSE Los Angeles set to jump off this coming weekend, we now bring your some preview images from Nate Frizzell (interviewed). Whereas his last solo To Become Myself saw Nate exclusively flex his muscle with charcoal, a compelling first time departure for the young artist, he now returns to the oils paintings that got people really talking during his I Should Know Who I Am By Now around this time last year. After four consecutive sold out exhibitions with […]

Previews: PULSE Los Angeles ’11 – Jen Stark @ Show & Tell Gallery

As we previewed a few days back, PULSE is getting ready for its big reveal in Los Angeles next weekend, running from September 30 to October 3. Jen Stark will be present at the inaugural Southern California iteration of the increasingly exciting contemporary art fair. Exhibiting with Toronto-based Shows & Tell Gallery, Stark will unveil a strong selection of her signature mixed-media works, primarily brand new pieces with an old one or two in the mix. As was the case with her solo Rainbow Rainbow […]

Streets: Retna (Miami)

After the pulling the cover off of a controversial collaborative mural with fellow graffiti artist Risk a couple weeks back, Retna (featured) bounced down to Miami last week to get a leg up on his fellow artists for this year’s Wynwood Walls. Originally conceived of by Jeffrey Deitch as a clever way to revitalize the debilitated Wynwood Arts District during Art Basel Miami, the annual outdoor art gathering has blossomed into an all out assault by graffiti legends, street artists, and contemporary art figures alike […]

Previews: PULSE Los Angeles ’11 – Dave Kinsey / Kris Kuksi / Greg Lamarche @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Joshua Liner Gallery has an impressive trio of artist on tap for the inaugural PULSE Los Angeles. Rising to prominence in Miami and New York, the event has become a mainstay on the contemporary fair circuit, known for it’s cutting-edge curating. The New York-based gallery made waves at PULSE NY back in March, when David Ellis’ animatronic installation True Value (Paint Fukette) won the coveted 2011 Pulse Prize. To kick things off proper at the fair debut in LA, work from Dave Kinsey, Kris Kuksi, and […]
