Showing: Thomas Canto @ Vieux Panier Hotel

Thomas Canto recently created a futuristic installation inside of one of the rooms at the Vieux Panier Hotel in Marseilles. This small hotel is built in an old Corsican grocery shop, and it has five unique rooms, each designed in a different style by a contemporary artist for a period of one year. Titled “XL Room”, Canto’s abstract installation combines ropes and painted surfaces inside the space. Following the simple and clean black & white color scheme he is known for, this installation is the artist’s […]

Streets: 2501 x Pastel – “Mirrorless” Project (Miami)

Recently, we received final photos & video footage of an independent project that took place in Wynwood, Miami, during Art Basel Week last year. Initiated by the artists 2501 and Pastel, the Mirrorless project involves three crucial subjects – artist, home and people, that are actually the key elements of works through their interaction with the elements of the installation. By creating and installing artworks and mirror surfaces around four different buildings, the Italian-Argentinian art duo played with simple optical illusions that were created. The artists got their inspiration […]

Videos: David Cata Sews Portraits Into His Hand

David Cata is a multidisciplinary artist from Spain who recently created a series of works where he sewed portraits of people who have left a mark on his life into the palm of his hand. Overexposed Emotions is kind of an autobiographical diary featuring faces of family, friends, partners, teachers, and others interwoven into his body just like their lives have been interwoven his own. The process mimics interactions and possibilities in real life when dealing with others including “union, separation, pain and love.” Take a […]

Upcoming: Li Hongbo – “Tools Of Study” @ Klein Sun Gallery

During Art Basel Week in Miami, one of the artists that caught our attention was Li Hongbo and his flexible paper sculptures. Represented by the Klein Sun Gallery at Art Miami & CONTEXT, the Chinese artist and former book editor presented pieces that look like solid and often created in a classic style, yet when stretched, the entire concept that the viewer had of his work is flipped upside down. For those in New York who are interested, he’ll be opening a new show tonight at Klein Sun […]
