Michael De Feo Lecture @ University of Pennsylvania

De Feo has shown in galleries around the globe too, but it is his familiar flower image that he is best known and loved for – especially in his native New York. This Thursday, March 18th, Michael has been invited to give a chronological lecture on his street art at the University of Pennsylvania for the school […]

Aurel Schmidt T-Shirts for Opening Ceremony

If you have been following artist Aurel Schmidt’s work, you may notice that she prefers to draw litter, debris, or ephemera that you could find in any trash bin or on the ground within a few steps of any busy city street.  Take, for example, the above drawing. The piece hangs in Opening Ceremony’s Ace Hotel shop and now has been been used to create 11 t-shirts, each one containing a different letter from the original artwork.  You can purchase one for $60 each at […]

Showing: Ansel Adams – Photographs of Japanese-American Internment @ Library of Congress

Legendary American photographer, Ansel Adams, currently has some unique work on display at the Prints and Photographs division at the Library of Congress.

Armory Week ’10: Independent

Along with the Armory Show and the regular satellite fairs (Pulse, Scope, Volta), this year we also attended Independent – a new fair founded by Elizabeth Dee of the non-profit X Initiative and Darren Flook of London’s Hotel gallery. Even among a week packed with so much to see, Independent certainly stood out. For one, unlike the other fairs we attended, with labyrinthine rows and aisles packed with gallery booths, Independent was set up like a museum exhibition, with several floors of open space organically […]

Preview: “Make It Fit” @ Brooklynite Gallery

Opening this Saturday at Bed Stuy’s vanguard Brooklynite Gallery is “Make It Fit,” a show featuring Brooklyn-based artist Specter and the German duo of Various & Gould. The theme of the exhibition is “work,” with the artists using their skill and ingenuity to transform found and discarded materials into a visual investigation of what the concept of work means to them. We anticipate that the artists will not only transform the materials, but the gallery itself, making it into an installation best experienced in person. […]
