On August 19th, Library Street Collective will be opening a solo show from AJ Fosik (featured) entitled From Ripe to Rot. Inspired by city he was born in, the Motor City’s continued evolution, transformation, and reinvention fuels the ideas behind this new body of work featuring his intricate wood assemblages. Fosik’s practice is informed by folk art, taxidermy, and cultural rituals which can be seen in the three dimensional beasts he creates as well in the newer more contained compositional pieces.

This Saturday night (August 5th), the long overdue show in Los Angeles from Josh Keyes (interviewed) opens its doors at Thinkspace Gallery. Implosion presents the Portland-based artist’s view of a dystopian post-human world, a sort of a warning with oftentimes scenes of environmental decay and nature reclaiming man-made structures. Featuring strongly in the new body of work is the use of graffiti juxtaposed in absurd locales, a construct which Keyes seems to be using to show the overreach of our society to deplete Earth’s life forces and our possible chaotic future.

On August 19th, Booth Gallery in New York will be opening a new solo show from Ronit Baragna entitled Embraced. The disturbing sculptures that the Israeli artist has prepared for the exhibition consist of her instantly recognizable tableware erupting with human fingers and mouths.

Festival Iminente (previewed) opened recently and will bring two days of art and music to London’s Brick Lane. The festival serves as both a celebration of Portuguese and pan-European culture and a warning of what may be lost as a result of the UK’s exit from the European Union. Vhil‘s cast concrete sculpture is based upon a sketch which he drew on a previous trip to the capital. The portrait is surrounded and interwoven with fragments of a city as viewed from above and the crevices created by the metropolis’ roads […]
On August 19th, Brandi Milne will be opening a new solo at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles entitled Once Upon a Quiet Kingdom. For this exhibition, her fourth with the gallery, the locally based artist continues her surreal landscapes that hide the uncertainties of life under a candy coated surface. She further explains – “This new body of work is an examination of the world around me, as well as the world within me. Specifically, the discovery that as life and all its uncertainty, pain, and […]
Back in early 2000’s, when the internet was young, art blogs had not been invented and social networks weren’t even a concept yet. At this time, graphic artist James-Lee Duffy and writer Josh Jones came up with an idea to create a platform for alternative artists and writers to be published. Art zine Pavement Licker was first released in 2003 and it was a chance for young artists to share their vision with a wide audience interested in such works. The list of contributors included countless young, unpublished artists to internationally-known […]
Over the weekend, Daniel Arsham teamed up with Adidas Originals to release a new shoe featuring his distinct aesthetic. The American artist’s version of their New York silhouette features an all white color, frayed edges, and the text “THE PAST IS PRESENT” along the side, which is only visible when placed underneath an ultraviolet light. For those familiar with Arsham’s work, these design cues fit in perfectly with his signature “future relic” vibe. The extremely limited sneaker retailed for $180 but probably will go for more at this […]
