Showing through April 20th at The Hole, Chicken or Beef is a group exhibition assembled by Danish curator Jesper Elg (co – founder and director of V1 Gallery in Copenhagen). The Transatlantic survey of figurative painting in Europe and America is named after the ubiquitous question posed on transatlantic flights and features many names that will be familiar to readers of AM as well as some new artists. Take a look at our photos of the work from a roster that includes Allison Schulnik, Anders Oinonen, Anna Bjerger, Antonio Ballester Moreno, [...]

After being introduced the intriguing outdoor works of HuskMitNavn during Komafest (covered) last year, we were curious to see how his work translated to the gallery setting. A showing at the V1 Gallery entitled One Of These Days gave us this opportunity to see some new drawings and paintings from the Danish artist in his characteristic colorful, humorous, and cartoonish style. Head over for a look yourself if you are in the area through February 16th. Photo credit: Henrik Haven.

AM has been keeping a watchful eye on Continental European shows featuring works by Barry McGee. Whenever the cashflow gods have been on our side, we’ve booked the necessary flights or trains to attend as well. This was the case with the 2010 joint show with Danish artist HuskMitNavn at A.L.I.C.E. Gallery in Brussels, and the 2009 three-man show (which also included Ed Templeton and Raymond Pettibon) curated by Aaron Rose at Berlin’s Circleculture Gallery. However, the last time McGee exhibited in the UK was [...]
The last fair we attended while in Switzerland was Volta6, and although it was way across town from Art Basel (covered, part 1 and 2) and Scope (covered), in a somewhat industrial part of the city, we were glad we made the trek. Unlike VoltaNY (covered), Volta6 was not focused on single-artist booths, so the smaller fair offered visitors a large range of interesting emerging artists.
Barry McGee under one of his numerous pseudonyms, Lydia Fong, opened up a joint show with Danish artist HuskMitNavn yesterday at the Alice Gallery in Brussels. The famed street artist from SF delivered the goods with his signature geometric panels, photos, installation pieces on the walls, and this nifty cluster (seen above). More images after the jump…
