Arrested Motion http://arrestedmotion.com "the aim of every artist is to arrest motion..." -Faulkner Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:00:17 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1 Streets: Jeff Soto x Maxx242 (Riverside) – Part I http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/04/streets-jeff-soto-x-maxx242-riverside-part-i/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/04/streets-jeff-soto-x-maxx242-riverside-part-i/#comments Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:00:17 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=275259 DSC03727

Like they have in the past (see Berlin & Luxembourg), Jeff Soto (interviewed) and Maxx242 are collaborating on a new mural in Riverside, California. The two friends and former studio mates go way back, even painting a wall together 25 years ago. A year in the making, the two are finally able to go big again in their hometown. Head over to University and Lemon if you are in the area to see them complete their joint effort later today. Discuss Jeff Soto here.]]>

Upcoming: ArtZuid 2015 http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/04/upcoming-artzuid-2015/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/04/upcoming-artzuid-2015/#comments Mon, 27 Apr 2015 04:35:56 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=275100 kaws

Foundation ArtZuid is currently finishing organizing 2015 edition of their International Sculpture Route in Amsterdam. ArtZuid is an open air sculpture biennial with this year's route consisting of about 73 monumental outdoor sculptures placed through the Berlage’s Art Deco district in Amsterdam South, just outside the city center. This concept doesn't only invite people to enjoy art objects in public space by walking or cycling the route, but also, it gives a chance to discover another area of Dutch capital. The fourth edition of the event will take place between the 22nd May and 22nd September using an innovative exhibition concept involving eighteen ‘podia’ in the open areas of the route stretching 2.5 km. The participating artists list includes such names as Ai Weiwei, Frank Stella, and KAWS, with each having a podium of their own. Photo credit: KAWS - Better knowing.

Openings: David Shillinglaw – ‘You Are Here’ @ Scream (London) http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/04/openings-david-shillinglaw-you-are-here-scream-london/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/04/openings-david-shillinglaw-you-are-here-scream-london/#comments Sun, 26 Apr 2015 16:51:45 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=275212 DS 10

David Shillinglaw (see the studio visit here) recently opened a new solo exhibition entitled You Are Here at Scream Gallery in London. A large crowd gathered to see the re-creation of the studio space of the artist, like an exploration of his creative mind, and enjoyed the new body of work on canvas, paper and wood, featuring symbols and typography with British artist's signature sunny colour palette. Also brightening up the evening was performance artist Pandemonia present amongst the guests. Talking about the show, David Shillinglaw mentions-  ‘Inspired by the relationship we all have with the ideas of being physically/geographically lost, and lost within our own imagination/spirituality. The overriding theme being that its ok to get lost, we all are from time to time, and in fact the process of getting lost goes hand in hand with discovery. We used to find short cuts, we used to draw maps. No we are all guilty of relying on sat-nav and following computer generated pins that lead us to where we want to go. While around us the environment (especially in the city/ especially in London) grow at an alarming rate. Add to that map millions of people, colliding and bumbling around, we are lost in a labyrinth we are convinced has been created for us.’ Join a Q&A session with the artist on 28 April.

Showing: Brad Downey – ‘Souvenirs’ @ Ruttkowski;68 http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/04/showing-brad-downey-souvenirs-ruttkowski68/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/04/showing-brad-downey-souvenirs-ruttkowski68/#comments Sun, 26 Apr 2015 04:20:45 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=275134 Souvenirs_35

Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne, Germany recently opened a new solo by American artist Brad Downey. Titled Souvenirs, the show features short videos and a series of everyday objects and utilitarian materials juxtapozed in a new context creating a novel meaning. The work raises issues about everything from identity (with his flags drawings), privacy, to self destruction. His series of works with keys touchbase on the notion of access and security. With his techniques of détournement and re-contextualization, Downey reinterprets banal objects to create revelatory artworks. These act as 'souvenirs‘ as they recall their past as well as triggering fresh emotional and intellectual associations.  ]]>

On the cover of this month's New York Times Magazine is a special project prepared by JR (interviewed) for their Walking New York issue. Focused on the issue of immigration as of late, the famous street artist decided to photograph recent immigrants walking down the streets of Nolita and in turn pasting their images on city streets, where they are often invisible despite there being approximately 3.1 million of them in NYC. The final chosen subject for the cover was Elmar Aliyev, a 20-year-old waiter at Old Baku, an Azerbaijani restaurant on Ditmas Avenue in Brooklyn. His 150-foot-tall form was pasted in the heart of Manhattan, on Flatiron plaza, the triangle of pavement between Fifth Avenue, Broadway and East 23rd Street. The French artist then took to the skies to photograph the final image where pedestrians walked right over him without even noticing. See a timelapse, photos, and more background info here. Discuss JR here.]]>

Artists Bäst, Paul Insect, and Rostarr have recently collaborated with a new fashion label, Cocurata, on their inaugural collection. Bringing an urban sensibility to the design, the new line entitled Extraction is a nice start to the company, founded by George Gorrow and George Benias. Their idea was to arrange a "direct exchange between artist and artisan – a street artist working with a jeweler, a sculptor collaborating with a perfumer or a painter creating bespoke, ready to wear pieces – that would result in artwork and collections that could stand alone in a gallery and boutique alike. It would be art curating fashion. Not the other way around." Each piece features elements lifted from the artists' work and is available at a number of retailers in the USA, Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia.]]>
