Openings: “Momentum” @ Lebasse Projects (Chinatown)

Last weekend, AM stopped by to take an advanced look at the new LeBasse Projects location in historic Chinatown.

Studio Visit: Gary Baseman

With a huge solo exhibition currently showing in NYC at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery (check out our coverage of it here), performances with the band Nightmare and the Cat, including in NY, LA, and Austin at SXSW, and inclusion in group and benefit exhibitions, Gary Baseman has had a very busy last few weeks.  We were very fortunate to be able to visit the native Angeleno in his home studio as he prepared for his first show in six years in the contemporary art capital […]

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.

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 […]

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.
