Showing: Dan Colen – “Miracle Paintings” @ Gagosian (New York)

Showing through this weekend at the 555 West 24th Street location of the Gagosian Gallery in New York is a solo from Dan Colen entitled Miracle Paintings. Considered one of the foremost members of the so called “Bowery School” or “Warhol’s Children” generation of artists, the locally based artist continues to explore “to what extent does art come from the artist, and to what extent does it arise from forces independent of the artist.” These latest large scale paintings are based on mythic Fantasia movie from Disney, so it comes […]

Openings: “The Boneyard Project : Return Trip” @ Pima Art & Space Museum

Last weekend, the outdoor fields and indoor hanger Pima Art and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona were the venues for the hand-painted vintage planes of The Boneyard Project: Return Trip.

Showing: Dan Colen – “Trash” @ Gagosian Gallery (Rome)

In anticipation of the ambitious Three Amigos three-part extravaganza – a series of three separate yet unified solo shows with Dan Colen, Nate Lowman, and Dash Snow at three different yet equally symbolic venues in Rome – Gagosian Gallery attempted to kick things off in advance with a solo from the one artist they represent; Dan Colen. Entitled Trash, the body of work is a massive departure from the body of work showing concurrently at Rome’s Palazzo Rospigliosi and stays true to its signifier in […]

Nate Lowman / Dash Snow / Dan Colen – “Three Amigos” @ Galleria Massimo De Carlo (Rome)

Affectionately referred to a “Warhol’s Children” in an in-depth New York Magazine article from 2007, the group of New York outcasts from the so-called “Bowery School” – including Dan Colen and Dash Snow (and Ryan McGinely, though not included in this event) – represented a new generation of provocative, scandalous, unique, and talented artists. Add Nate Lowman, another New York artist who represents the same ideals of the group of risk takers, into the equation with Colen and Dash and you have Three Amigos. Organized by […]
