The AM team spent couple of hours yesterday browsing the two beachside pavilions of the PULSE art fair in Miami. The 11th edition of the fair was once again a great platform for¬†emerging and established¬†galleries to present their artists’ work to the collectors and art enthusiasts visiting Basel Week Miami. Out of booths from over 80 international galleries, some of the work that stood out for us were the large Jose Parla canvases, Richard Garrison minimalist chart compositions, Christian Rex van Minnen¬†paintings, Nicola Verlato and […]

With his outdoor installation currently on view in New York (covered),¬†Jose Parla¬†will be offering fans in the Big Apple more opportunities to see his work come September 12th. On Saturday night, he will be opening shows simultaneously at the¬†Bryce Wolkowitz¬†and¬†Mary Boone¬†galleries in Chelsea collectively entitled¬†Surface Body / Action Space. He further states – “The title and concept of¬†Surface Body / Action Space¬†serves as a metaphor for the language of my new paintings and sculptures. The works negotiate two, sometimes four modes of thinking, linking artistic […]
Starting on this Thursday, the Standard Hotel on The High Line will be be hosting new work¬†from Jose Parla. Segmented Realities will be the Brooklyn-based artist’s first outdoor installation in New York and will consist of three two sided sculptural paintings that mirror the crumbling, graffiti covered walls that he sees and often documents on his travels. A similar selection of works was displayed¬†in Cuba recently (seen above and below) and at the High Museum of Art last year (covered). For those interested, if you […]
The past year has been a memorable one for the¬†Brooklyn Museum as they’ve hosted some amazing exhibitions from¬†Swoon¬†&¬†Ai Weiwei and 2015 looks to keep pace as Kehinde Wiley, Basquiat and a upcoming show with Faile has already commanded the attention of New York’s art lovers. But first things first, it’s now April and time for their annual Brooklyn Artist Ball gala to raise funds for their creative and vanguard programming. This year’s Artist Ball Dinner has already sold out, but tickets are still available for […]
With the conclusion of the auction set to end tonight at 9 pm (EST), now would be a good time to take a look at what is up for bid in support of¬†No Longer Empty on Paddle8. The conclusion of the auction for the organization whose mission is to activate public engagement with contemporary art through curated, community-responsive exhibitions and educational programs that revive underutilized sites in New York City¬†coincides with the their¬†5 year anniversary. Many of the artists¬†presented in their past 18 major exhibitions […]
It’s been a while since our last¬†Rewind¬†feature, so here are some videos that you may have missed in the interim. Leading things off is a film by director Ben Mor featuring an interesting look into the world of Os Gemeos. The eclectic footage merges seamlessly together as we are taken on a trip through exhibitions, installations, paintings, sculptures and the real lives of the Brazilian twins. Through the magic of animation, fans will notice the duo’s imagery come to life. Other notable videos: The Hundreds […]
It looks like the Norway-based company Sn√łhetta recently designed and oversaw the renovation of an expansive new studio for Jose Parla. The former¬†Brooklyn warehouse was divided into two sections – “the arena” and “the nest.” The first is a¬†double-height workspace for the NY-based artist’s increasingly large projects (see Barclays Center & One World Trade Center), while the other is an elevated lounge space¬†that overlooks the other.

Tonight in Atlanta (6-10 pm), Jose Parla will be presenting new works at the High Museum of Art entitled Segmented Realities¬†in conduction with Imagining New Worlds with Wifredo Lam and Fahamu Pecou. Pescou and Parla will respond to the work of Lam, providing¬†their reactionary work based on his life and artistic Legacy. Especially intriguing are these new sculptural pieces from the Brooklyn-based Parla that take his work into the third dimension. Enjoy more installation shots below… Photo credit: The artist, musuem, and Rey Parla. Discuss […]
While in town for¬†Basel Week Miami, we made sure to head north a little ways to attend the Pulse¬†held at their new location –¬†Indian Beach Park. The tenth edition of the ¬†event featured some familiar names as well as many artists new to us. One of these was the sculptural works of Jorge Mayet (seen above) at the Galeria Horrach Moya booth. Enjoy more photos below form the fair… See all our coverage of Basel Week Miami¬†here.
Continuing to make his mark in New York with high profile projects (also see Barclays Center¬†& BAM),¬†Jos√© Parl√° recently unveiled a new mural in the One World Trade Center. The 1776 feet tall building in Manhattan took¬†13 years of construction and cost $3.9 billion, and stands near where the Twin Towers collapsed after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. The locally based artist was the perfect choice in terms of his history in the area as well as the fact that the curatorial team was looking […]
