Frieze Week NYC ’12: Geoff McFetridge for COOPER COLE @ PULSE

With the Frieze Art Fair opening this weekend in New York, the PULSE Art Fair also took the opportunity to woo art collectors at the same time. Opening today, one of the booths to visit at PULSE is definitely the Toronto-based gallery Cooper Cole and new works from Geoff McFetridge. The LA-based artist will be offering up new paintings that show off his signature minimalistic wit and his interesting ability to break down images into their basic geometric components. Discuss this showing here. Discuss Geoff […]

Armory Week ’12: Scope Art Fair

One of the mainstay satellite fairs during Armory Week is the Scope Art Fair. This year’s edition rocked a new location just blocks from the main Armory Art Show (here & here) and gained some fresh galleries go along with its revamped look. As with most fairs we caught works by artists from around the globe and we also ran into a few familiar faces to go along with the infusion of new blood. Check it out after the jump.

Armory Week ’12: ADAA Art Show – First Look

The Armory Art Show (here & here) may be the flagship event of Armory Week in New York, but the most prestigious title this year goes to another. The ADAA Art Show held at the Park Avenue Armory (covered) was a smaller, but more selective fair. Like a small jewelery box, this event drew some of the top galleries from around the nation. With only 72 booths, the fair offered an intimate viewing and a distinguished list of notables such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Wayne Thiebaud, […]

Armory Week ’12: Volta Show – First Look

Continuing our Armory Week coverage we move on to Volta. This fair is the little brother to the main Armory Art Show (here & here). For Volta, selected galleries don’t exhibit various artists from their roster, instead they focus on one artist to showcase at their booth. This rule kept our head spinning to a minimum, but nonetheless the visual talent had our eyes dancing around the whole time. Check it out after the jump.

Flying Murals of Wynwood

You may remember some photos that Futura sent us that we shared with you last month painted for Art Wynwood. That large painting, along with work from Retna, How & Nosm, DAZE, and Aiko was destined to be displayed at the Miami fair last weekend above as part of the flying murals of Wynwood project over the VIP lounge area. Here are now some photos of them hung up along with some bonus looks at an installation by Ron English. Check it out after the […]

Armory Week ’12: Armory Show – First Look (Part II)

As with most art fairs, there is such a overwhelming amount of art, it’s hard to take in all the goodness in one pass. After Part I of our look at the main fair, we now have a second set of photos to share with you from the Armory. Enjoy the viewing as we work on getting you more coverage of additional select satellite fairs and events. Photoset after the jump…

Armory Week ’12: Armory Art Show – First Look (Part I)

Yesterday, AM attended the private viewing of the Armory Art Show which officially kicked off a crazy week of art in New York. Similar to Basel Miami’s first look, many of the art world’s notable collectors queued up patiently for the clock to strike noon so they could pounce on their favorites at the the fair’s many quality galleries. It took us hours to run through and scan the booths to bring you a selection of images. Check it out after the jump.

Amory Week ’12: Richard Heller Gallery

Studio Visits: Aakash Nihalani @ Volta ’12

Time flies – it’s already time for Armory Week 2012 in New York. As the Big Apple preps for the onslaught of art and events, Aakash Nihalani quietly works on his upcoming exhibition with the Carmichael Gallery at this year’s satellite Volta Art Fair. We’ve all seen his street works and recent stint at the Facebook offices, but now we take a look at some of the sculptural works he has been prepping for the fair. AM was invited over to his Brooklyn studio to see […]
