When down in Miami for Art Basel, we went with our friends The Art Collectors to the Bass Museum of Art to see the exhibition by Chicago-based artist Dzine. Suffice to say that Dzine truly brought it for this museum show, which included eye-popping installations and paintings, proving that he is an artist to watch. As always, The Art Collectors has written up an intelligent and in-depth post with extensive photos, so check it out here. Discuss Art Basel week here.

As you wonder through the endless booths at all the different fairs at Art Basel, you often chance on some unexpected new artists. One of those moments for us this year was San Francisco-based Misa Inaoka and her mutant bird sculptures exhibiting with Johansson Projects at the NADA art fair. Not only did each unique sculpture seem to be created from some strange animal part junkyard, but the pieces had motorized joints and twisted intermittently. More images after the jump…
Wintertime groups shows are common this time of year, so it’s not surprising we have another one to share with you. “Winter Warmers” opened last week at in London at the StolenSpace Gallery, and as you can see from the image above, D*Face (interviewed) was in a festive mood. The show also marked the release of VNA Issue 10 with a special screenprinted cover by D. Take a look at more images from some established artists as well as some promising young talent after the [...]
You may remember Word to Mother’s (interviewed) show at StolenSpace Gallery (covered) earlier this year. Now comes a video from Andrew Telling at around that time period that gives us insight into young London-based artist’s creative process and workspace. Discuss Word to Mother here.
As we mentioned recently in our dual interview with Hush and Dan Baldwin, their collaborative pieces were part of a group show “Don’t Believe the Type” that opened several nights ago at Zero Cool Gallery. Also on display were works from artists like Asbestos, Copyright, Ben Frost, Meggs, Pure Evil, T.WAT and many more. Take a look at all the pics after the jump…
Less than a month after Dan Attoe‘s highly successful solo exhibition, I’m Done Worryin’ About Shit, at Peres Projects in Los Angeles came to a close, the gallery featured the artist in a solo show at Art Basel Miami. The show consisted of Attoe’s meticulously rendered paintings and large-scale, highly illuminated neon sculptures. It certainly was one of the most spectacular booths at Basel’s Art Nova section. More after the jump…
Opening tomorrow night at Jonathan LeVine Gallery is James Marshall’s (interviewed) latest show entitled “And There Was War in Heaven.” With this new body of work, the artist formerly known as Dalek continues down the path of near-total geometric abstraction, with few or no references remaining to his early space monkey character. In addition, Marshall has created several paintings with a more simplified style and a very recession-friendly pricing, which will no doubt interest old and new Dalek collectors alike. See the rest of the [...]
If you’re like us at AM, you can’t wait until Josh Keyes’ (interviewed) show at Jonathan Levine Gallery (previewed). But to keep his eager fans happy in the meantime, David B. Smith Gallery will be releasing a hardback book next Tuesday cataloging his recent “Sprout” show (covered) and related pieces. We got an in depth look at this book at the DBS’ SCOPE booth and we must say that this book is not only gorgeous, but also features several multi-page layouts of some of Keyes’ best works to [...]
It’s that time of year again, when the Whitney makes an important announcement regarding the Whitney Biennial. Last year at the exact same time, it announced the curatorial team for its 2010 Biennial. Today, the much-anticipated list of artists, which includes Robert Williams, Aurel Schmidt, and Tauba Auerbach, was announced. Curators Francesco Bonami and Gary Carrion-Murayari chose a diverse range of artists who work across all different kinds of media and subject matter. Eleven artists make their return from previous Biennials. In what could further [...]
With the demand for quality evident by the current buyer’s market in contemporary art, Zach Feuer Gallery (LFL) brought out their best artist, the painter Dana Schutz, for Art Basel Miami 2009. The gallery’s booth consisted of new paintings by Schutz and a film and sculpture from Nathalie Djurberg. Schutz is considered one of today’s best young painters and frequently appears on many critics and collectors best-of lists, as well as part of major museum collections. Her last solo show at the gallery, Missing Pictures, [...]
