Video: Acclaim x Swoon

Back in March, we brought you some photos from Swoon’s (interviewed) first solo exhibition in Australia held at the Metro Gallery. This was probably right before she worked on her next-level illuminated installation piece for the MOCA show (covered). Well, apparently our friends at Acclaim Magazine, who happen to be conveniently based in Melbourne, were able to get some footage of the show along with an interview with the Brooklyn-based artist. Discuss Swoon here.

Teaser: Melissa Haslam – “Kigurumi” @ LeBasse Projects (Culver City)

When we first saw this new piece from Melissa Haslam’s (featured), we thought it was a photograph.  But, it looks like she has just upped the detail in this new body of work since her last show at LeBasse Projects (covered). Her new show is entitled Kigurumi will open in July and is inspired by cosplay enthusiasts that she knows. Take a look at a video by Melissa’s sister during a photo reference shoot of Kigurumi girls…

Focus: Banksy – “Art in the Streets” @ MOCA

The most speculated upon artist of Art in the Streets was none other than the mysterious and supremely talented Banksy. Not “officially” announced on the initial roster of artists involved in the MOCA exhibition, rumors buzzed in art land that the acclaimed director of the Oscar nominated Exit Through The Gift Shop would be the “special guest” appearing in the exhibition. Banksy didn’t disappoint as he brought the “heavy weaponry” back to the city that held his Barely Legal show in 2006. Banksy brought many […]

Pulse ’11 – Cindy Wright @ Mark Moore

At this year’s Pulse NYC, LA’s Mark Moore Gallery showcased talented Belgian artist Cindy Wright. Wright’s work seems to follow from the long tradition of Dutch and Flemish still-life paintings, portraying simple objects illuminated upon a dark background. However, Wright’s compositions—like her showstopping painting of a glistening cube of uncooked chunks of bacon or another of a rotting piece of fruit—are at once realistic and abstract, beautiful and hideous, depending on how and from where the pieces are viewed. Take a look at other images […]
