Preview/Interviews: Matt Dangler @ M Modern

Matt Dangler’s “Out from the Whirlwind” opens at M Modern on December 12th in Palm Springs.  Since we last talked to Matt (where he shared an image with us explained the theme of the show) we know many of you have been itching to see more of the body of work.  We managed to get a couple more images for you, but you will have to wait until the show to see all of the of the paintings (please contact M Modern Gallery to be […]

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 […]

POW Open Day (Part II)

Those who did not get enough of POW the first day went back for day two of the POW Open Day event. The second visit allowed more time to take photos of art and merchandise for sale.  Probably the highlight was this Banksy canvas.  More detailed pics of this as well as other work for sale after the jump.

Obey x Z Trip Basel Party @ Shore Club

Already revved up from the Gen Art Vanguard Gala (Here)… Friday night got even more crazy as DJ Diabetic and Ztrip tag teamed the turntables for a packed Shore Club in South Beach. Shepard gave back in his usual gracious fashion as he threw a party for all his friends and fans. The party was super packed but security kept it cool and managed the crazy crowd wait to see Shepard and Ztrip. Once inside, the vibe was amazing. Numerous peeps were in attendance: Jose Parla, […]

Pulse @ Basel week Miami

Art Basel is not the only game in town. The crush of quality art fairs are a dream and a curse for art lovers. One has only so much time in the day! The Pulse Art Fair was one of the stops for us and the amount of amazing art was unbelievable! If you were here, we would suggest that you get surgery to put your head on a swivel because you’ll constantly be spinning around like R2D2 trying to absorb the visual delights. Of course, […]

POW Open Day (Part I)

POW’s day one of their highly anticipated Open Day event kicked off yesterday to the delight of collectors. As expected, street art fans arrived in droves, with reports of lines exceeding three hours.  Rights to purchase were determined by lottery with the first winner getting the special Nola (with different blue-green rain) and the second prize being a free Banksy “Very little helps” TESCO print.  The other other winners got an option to buy the print (edition of 299, £350 ) – we can assume […]

Emanuel Perrotin x Pharrell + Beautiful/Decay Basel Parties

Night time at Basel week is where the heavy wheeling and dealing occurs. Galleries and sponsors line up numerous parties for prospective clients. Thursday night was a doubleheader for AM. First stop was the Beautiful/Decay party at the Essex House. Lots of mingling occuring as we met up with the crew from Obey, Cerasoli LeBasse, and White Walls/Shooting Gallery. Ron English, Yoskay Yamamoto, Mars-1, Tessar Lo, Nate Frizzell, Dan Obrien, Edwin Ushiro and many more were on hand to guzzle beverages and catch up on […]

Art Basel Vernissage

After only being able to spend less than an hour at the Art Basel Miami 08 vernissage preview Wednesday night, AM went back to the fair yesterday, and this time, we took our time. For those not familiar with Art Basel, it’s like walking through the world’s biggest museum of modern and contemporary art, except everything is for sale. There are far too many amazing works of art to mention – everything from Picasso to Rothko to Warhol to Richard Prince, so we thought that […]

Shepard Fairey @ Scope Miami

AM stopped by to visit Jonathan Levine, who was on hand to showcase Shepard Fairey’s work at Scope. Shepard created some gigantic murals to go along with the exclusive stencil works on paper and record albums. Unlike most Shepard Fairey shows where the buyers names are put on a list for a chance to purchase art, Levine made these works available only to the people who attended the show and on a first come-first serve basis. A few hardcore fans arrived at 6am on preview […]

Takashi Murakami x Rolling Stone Basel party

Wednesday night, AM partied with Takashi Murakami and Rolling Stone at the Louis Lounge in South Beach. Takashi certainly knows how to let loose, including his hair! This exclusive event was to celebrate the opening of Murakami’s second Geisai Miami fair. Kaws, Matzu, and Aiko were just a few of the celebrities that were in attendance. The night got reved-up fast and the crowd of VIPs took the floor to party away. Props to Josh Liner Gallery and Gallery Delaive for showing AM fun South […]
