Nicoletta’s show “By the Time You Are Real” (teased) opens this Saturday, December 13th at Richard Goodall Gallery in Manchestor, UK. She brings us seventeen wonderful new paintings to enjoy of which we obtained two more new images (thanks to Richard Goodall) since AM last talked about her. We sat down with the Merino based artist to chat a little about her influences, her illustration work, and her plans for 2009 among other things after the jump…

Preview: This is China show

Although we have been enamored with Japanese artists for a while now, recently we have been increasingly interested in the Chinese art scene.  It seems more and more intriguing artists are popping up on various sites…  If you add to that, the fact that western artists seem to be showing more in Asia, the time seems ripe for the kind of crossover show that is opening this weekend in Seattle. “This is China” (teased), put together by Red Star Press at the location formerly known […]

Preview: Mostly Memory @ Thinkspace

Thinkspace has been very busy. First, their stellar lineup at the Gen Arts fair at Basel Week, (here) then right back in LA with a new show: Mostly Memory. This exhibit showcases two talented urban artists: Armsrock (Denmark) and Elbow-Toe (NYC).  We have no doubt the gallery will be transformed with some crazy installations that are already in progress.  Make sure you don’t miss the opening reception on Friday, Dec 12th (7-11pm). Thanks to Thinkspace/Sour Harvest, we gathered some preview images of their work for […]

Gen Art Vanguard – Basel Party

Friday night ended with a bang at the OBEY x Z Trip party. But AM never told the tale of how this massive night of Basel parties started. The Gen Art Vanguard party was the Basel Friday night jumpoff where the “who’s who” of Miami were at. With heavy hitter sponsors such as FAGE, Citibank, and Bombay Sapphire footing the bill for drinks, Gen Art Vanguard was transformed into a true Miami mega event.  Stars and artists lined up to grab their VIP goodie bags while everyone else […]

Preview/Interviews: Matt Dangler @ M Modern

Gen Arts – Vanguard @ Basel Week Miami

Definitely one of the coolest fairs in Miami is the Gen Art Vanguard. (It probably doesn’t hurt to have one of the best parties of the week either).  Housing some of the most cutting edge galleries: Carmichael, Thinkspace, M Modern, Mark Murphy, Galerie d’art Yves Laroche, and etc, this was one of the fairs that AM made a point to visit more than once at Basel Week. We were on site early Friday morning to make our rounds to shoot the artwork and massive party […]
