Upcoming: Matthew Palladino @ Garth Greenan Gallery

Tonight in Chelsea, the locally-based Matthew Palladino (interviewed) will be opening a new show at Garth Greenan Gallery. We last enjoyed his work in New York back in 2011, and fans who attended that showing and plan to be present tonight will see that his work has evolved since to include three-dimensional elements to his repertoire. The same explorations of ideas of perspective can be seen in these new pieces as well Palladino’s well-honed sense of humor. Discuss Matthew Palladino here.

Showing: “Just Before Brazil” @ Alice Gallery

Alice Gallery in Brussels recently opened a big group show entitled Just Before Brazil. The idea was to showcase the artists they invited to the Asphalte festival in Charleroi and to share with the world their works before everyone’s attention gets focused on Brazil and football. But, after settling on the first lineup of artists, they’ve decided to add few more names and ended up with an impressive list of 52 artworks by 26 artists from various parts of the globe, various backgrounds, and various ways […]

So, we’ve returned with part 2, which includes images of works by Yayoi Kusama, Ed Ruscha, George Condo, Jonas Wood and Jeff Elrod, among many others. Discuss Frieze […]
