Streets: Conor Harrington x Vhils (Lisbon)

Reminiscent of the fantastic JR x Vhils collaboration we witnessed in LA during the Eurotrash invasion last year, it looks like Vhils has busted out his tools again and has hooked up with another street artist for a project. As you know from our feature his recent piece in Lisbon, Conor Harrington’s (interviewed) was in town and apparently also put up this piece with some of Vhils’ special techniques although the effects weren’t as evident as the JR collab, perhaps since it was not as […]

Openings: Steal from Work – ‘Flogging a Dead Horse’ @ The Showroom, Bristol

Steal From Work (the guys that put on the 12 Days of Christmas and Not a Penny More group shows in Bristol) put on their first show in two years on Bristol’s busy Park Street. The production entitled Flogging a Dead Horse promised to be “a group show featuring the best (and worst) urban street contemporary artists in the world” and at first glance they really were true to their words. People wandering in were impressed by original canvases by the likes of Banksy, Hirst, […]

Previews: Jason Thielke – ‘Zero-zero’ @ David B Smith Gallery

David B. Smith Gallery in Denver’s next exhibition will be Zero-zero – a new collection of work from Jason Thielke. Unlike Thielke’s recent work where he uses gel transfer and laser etching to produce his compositions, Zero-zero promises an entirely fresh body of work comprised of drawn and painted works. It’s been almost 2 years since Thielke’s last solo exhibition of New Works at DBS where AM interviewed him ahead of the show. He tells us that Zero-zero is about achieving a hazy or obscure […]

Showing: Delta – “Subduction Zones” @ Muziekgebouw Concert Hall (Amsterdam)

It looks like Boris Tellegen aka Delta has decided to go big since we last saw his work at the Elms Lester show in 2009. These new large-scale floating sculptural works from the Dutch artist are currently on display at Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw Concert Hall and are collectively entitled Subduction Zones, placed to welcome the World Minimal Music Festival. More photos after the jump…

David Lynch – “New Painting and Sculpture” @ William Griffin Gallery

David Lynch, best known as a filmmaker and director of such critically acclaimed films as Eraserhead, Mulholland Drive, and Blue Velvet, is also an accomplished visual artist in the mediums of painting and sculpture.  In this exhibition, Lynch’s second show with William Griffin Gallery, he continues his unique vision of the narrative of the American psyche.  The eccentric and slightly bizarre wall pieces include works on cardboard with thickly applied paint and the occasional light bulb, all wrapped around gold frames.  The sculptures resemble fully-functioning […]

Openings: Exhibition A – “Monochrome Set” @ Ace Hotel

For many of you, Exhibition A is already an organization that you may be familiar with. For the uninitiated, it’s a site that’s dedicated to selling exclusive editioned artwork by some of notable names in contemporary art, but their goal is to do that without breaking your bank. We recently attended the inaugural show for Exhibiton A’s Monochrome Set held at the Ace hotel including works from Terence Koh, Nate Lowman, Hanna Liden, Josephine Meckseper, Olympia Scarry, Peter Sutherland, Oliver Zahm and Leo Fitzpatrick.
