Openings / Giveaway: Charming Baker — ‘Every Thing Must Go’ @ Mercer Street Studios, London

Every Thing Must Go (previewed), the new Charming Baker pop-up show in London’s Covent Garden opened on Thursday 7 July. It was a well-organised, confidently-run operation on the night. Guests were looked after by a tag-team of hosts including the artist himself, his manager Tim Fennell, Pat Magnarella and Roger Klein of Pat Magnarella Management, and the Jealous Gallery crew. Art may or may not be the new rock and roll, but both worlds mixed comfortably at the event which was attended by the likes […]

Previews: “NY Ink” @ Wooster Street Social Club

Many tattoo fans who have followed LA Ink & Miami Ink probably already know that tonight will be the series premiere of NY Ink. And, as the title indicates, this spinoff is set in the Big Apple. For all you art lovers, there’s an additional reason aside from the sick tattoos and drama to check out this show – amazing art. Earlier this year AM was tapped to help curate the inaugural season of the show. Artwork from artists such as Shepard Fairey, Audrey Kawasaki, […]

Showing: Lazarides’ “Hell’s Half Acre” at the Leake Street Tunnels

One of the most notable stops in our hectic journey through London was Lazarides’ “Hell’s Half Acre” group exhibition. The pop-up show was located in the eerie tunnels of Leake Street (AKA the Old Vic Tunnels where the Cans Festival was held). The dark catacombs were the perfect setting to host this amazing group show that featured signature works from artists such as Ian Francis, David Choe, Conor Harrington, Antony Micallef and Jonathan Yeo. One of the stand out pieces from the show was Paul […]

Teaser: Lazarides – “Hell’s Half Acre” @ The Old Vic Tunnel

Opening next Tuesday, Hell’s Half Acre, is a unique concept show organized by London-based Lazarides around the theme of Dante’s “Inferno”, interpreted as “hell” in the influential author’s Italian tongue. Fittingly hosted deep within the underground catacombs known as The Old Vic Tunnels, the impressive roster of artists – including such LAZ favorites as Vhils, Antony Micallef, Ian Francis and David Choe, just to name a few – has been tasked with interpreting the nine circles of hell as postulated within the epic 14th-century poem […]

Openings: Antony Micallef & Conor Harrington @ Lazarides (Beverly Hills)

Two artists from across the pond who are not strangers to Los Angeles – Conor Harrington (interviewed), who had a show with Chloe Early at Kinsey/DesForges last year, and Antony Micallef (interviewed), who had a pop-up show with Lazarides almost 3 years ago – unveiled their newest body of work to a thrilled opening night crowd at Eurotrash at the Lazarides LA gallery. Of the four artists (also including Vhils & JR), who participated in the group exhibition, Micallef’s work stood out the most. Unlike […]

LAzarides 90210 heats up Los Angeles this summer

Remember last year when we broke the news about Lazarides moving their famous Outsiders show to LA? Well, they decided to step up their pop-up show efforts by expanding their LA presence to 4 shows that will last through this summer. The still secret 8000 ft gallery space will be situated in the famous high end district of Beverly Hills. The line up is nothing short of spectacular with David Choe (featured) to kick off with an opening April 23rd, followed by JR, Vhils, Conor Harrington, and Antony Micallef […]

The British Heart Foundation will be holding a event next month hoping to raise £50 million to fund the cutting-edge cardiac-regenerative research.  The benefit entitled The Mending Broken Hearts Appeal (curated by CCA gallery) will feature artwork from a group of artists including Damien Hirst, Sir Peter Blake, Jonathan Yeo, Gavin Turk, and Antony Micallef (interviewed) among many others. The artwork will be auctioned off on April 14th at a gala in the Dorchestor Hotel in association with Christie’s Auction House (private view on April […]

Openings: Antony Micallef – “Becoming Animal” @ Lazarides

It’s not that often that you feel completely blown away when you walk into a gallery, but that was the feeling AM experienced when we first walked into Lazarides (Rathbone Place) at the opening of Antony Micallef’s epic solo show, “Becoming Animal.” We’d been anticipating this show since well before we interviewed Antony (read that here) a couple of weeks back, and hearing him talk about his motivations behind the show only whet our appetite even more. He told us that this show was all about him […]

Interviews / Preview: Antony Micallef – “Becoming Animal” @ Lazarides London

One of London’s most anticipated shows of the year is almost upon us with Antony Micallef’s “Becoming Animal” opening this week at Lazarides gallery’s Rathbone Place location. We certainly got excited after seeing the new image of one of the show pieces he recently put on his website here – and it certainly seemed to fit with the dark tone he described to us. This is the first solo outing from Micallef since his sell out show in Los Angeles, “Impure Idols,” in 2007 where […]
