Showing: Friends With You – “Happy Rainbow” @ TMTP Cultural Center

It’s always nice to see concept images become reality – with FriendsWithYou’s exhibition in Hong Kong being no exception. The new installation from the Miami-based duo entitled Happy Rainbow opened to the public recently at the TMTP Cultural Center to the delight of their fans there. The inflatable bouncing installations as well as fiberglass, plush and resin sculptures are always a hit with the younger crowd but certainly was fun for all ages. Via Designboom.

Openings: “Oniomania” @ Martha Otero

This past weekend, AM stopped by to catch a fresh exhibition at Martha Otero Gallery. As explained in our preview, the curiously titled Oniomania means “to compulsively buy”. In this case, the group show was filled with pieces that would drive an art shopaholic wild as such notables as John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha, James Jean, David Choe, Jen Stark, FriendsWithYou, Darren Romanelli, Chris Beas, Jonathan Borofsky, Liz Craft, Sebastian Clough, Wim Delvoye, Lia Halloran, Adam Janes, Brand Kahlhamer, Donald Lipski, Bruce Nauman and Jason Polan had […]

Openings: “Facemaker” @ Royal/T

Facemaker opened at Royal/T last Wednesday, curated by Kathy Grayson, director of The Hole NYC and former director of the Deitch Projects. Just in time for Art in the Streets, the eclectic Culver City art space has teamed up with the New York gallery to put on a street-pop frenzy, displaying a playful amalgam of colorful imagery centered on different interpretations of the face. With street artists Shepard Fairey, Barry McGee, Kenny Scharf, KAWS, and SWOON on the roster, alongside Clare Rojas, FriendsWithYou, Ben Jones, […]

Openings: “Postermat” @ The Hole Gallery

AM recently attended The Hole Gallery’s latest show Postermat. The group exhibition was a little different than the typical group show because they went all retro with it. Imagine going back to your childhood and rummaging through mall shops for your favorite posters of sports, rockbands, singers or even comic books – almost everyone had a cheap but cool poster that was maybe mass produced, but meant the world to us. In the same spirit, the good folks at the Hole and Levi’s, got together […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: Friends With You x Pharrell x Shepard Fairey x Paper Mag Party

Running at full steam right now down in South Beach, Art Basel Week is filled with many good things. This was most definitely one of them. Set upon the backdrop of Friends With You’s psychedelic outdoor installation, Rainbow City (previewed), Pharrell came to the conclusion the inflatable garden was the perfect location for a set of his hip-hop infused pop anthems. A brilliant idea, indeed, for the ubiquitous recording artist who has befriended countless contemporary artists and recently called upon the colorful Miami based art […]

Preview: Basel Week Miami ’10 – Friends With You

It just wouldn’t be Art Basel Miami week without fantastical Floridians Friends With You. This year, the energetic and imaginative duo of Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval will be presenting Rainbow City, a large-scale outdoor installation that in their words addresses “the potency of interaction, ritual, and play.” Constructed in Miami’s Design District, the site-specific collection of 40 simple air-filled structures—some up to 40 feet high—are meant to embrace and tower over guests, creating a feeling of reverence. And to add to the excitement, Pharrell […]
