Openings: “De Dentro e De Fora” @ São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP)

A couple nights ago, the São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP) played host to the opening of De Dentro e De Fora or Inside Out Outside In, seemingly a repeated title for many recent street art exhibitions and videos in some variation or another. Although the name of the exhibition lacked originality, what was important (the art) more than made up for it. Curated by Mariana Martins, Baixo Ribeiro, and Eduardo Saretta, the show featured new works by familiar names to AM readers like Invader […]

Streets: Invader (São Paulo)

After celebrating his 1000th piece placed in the streets with a huge show in Paris, it looks like Invader is continuing onward towards 2000.  Take a look at these new pieces in the Brazilian street art mecca of São Paulo. Of interest are the daring placements, the use of tiles with local flavor, locations next to local talent, and even a rare throw-up from the French street tile master. Perhaps he is in town for a group show opening this weekend at São Paulo Museum […]

Openings: Andrew Schoultz & Paul Klee – “Images in Dialogue” @ SFMOMA

Just this Saturday, the SFMOMA hosted an intriguing posthumous dialogue between Swiss-born Modernist Paul Klee and the very much living Andrew Schoultz (previewed). Images in Dialogue featured new works from the SF-based Schoultz displayed side by side with Klee’s work with the former pieces created in response to the latter’s paintings. When Schoultz was first approached by SFMOMA curator, John Zarobell regarding the project, he was familiar with Klee’s work, but did not consider him direct influence. As he did more research, he was surprised […]

Preview: Armsrock – “The Impossible Society” @ Vejle Museum of Art

We haven’t heard much from Armsrock (interviewed) since his light-infused showing in Vienna earlier this year. There’s a good reason for that as the Danish street artist has been focused on building an important new body of work for his show at the Vejle Museum of Art in his native country. The large soulful paintings appear to be some of his best to date and we look forward to seeing the full results of his hard work come the September 3rd opening of The Impossible Society. […]

Video: The Exhibitionist – “Art in the Streets” @ MOCA

Take a look at this off-the-wall video as a man takes an interactive stop-motion journey through the Art in the Streets exhibition that recently closed. The film was directed by brothers Mark Osborne and Kent Osborne and was made in collaboration with Levi’s Film Workshop (also see Swoon & Neck Face) and Happy Product. By the way, congratulations are in order as the historic exhibition broke attendance records at the MOCA with over 200,000 street art and graf fans served. Now, we await Deitch to see […]

Teaser: Andrew Schoultz & Paul Klee – “Images in Dialogue” @ SFMOMA

This Saturday, August 13th in San Francisco, a unique exhibition is opening at the SFMOMA. How do you hold a conversation artistically with someone long dead? Andrew Schoultz will attempt just that by creating a visual dialogue across a century with drawings that are a response to the works of Swiss-born Modernist Paul Klee. Andrew sent over the images of a couple of the pieces that will be displayed along with Klee’s, so if it intrigues you, stop by for the opening. One more image […]

Videos: Ai Weiwei – “Art / Architecture” @ The Kunsthaus

The Kunsthaus in Bregenz, Austria recently opened up an exhibition Art / Architecture that explores the lesser known architectural work of the recently released Ai Weiwei. It’s certainly encouraging to see the Chinese artist continue to exhibit despite his imprisonment as well as him starting to enter social media again (Instagram & Twitter – English translation). Take a look at the video above from Vernissage TV with footage of the exhibition as well as an interview with director of the Kunsthaus Bregenz, Yilmaz Dziewior. Via Hypebeast. Discuss […]

Interview: Kid Acne – ‘Kill Your Darlings’ @ Millenium Gallery

South Yorks represent! Kid Acne’s solo exhibition Kill Your Darlings launches this Friday 22nd July at Museums-Sheffield’s Millenium Gallery. A long time resident of Sheffield, this is surprisingly Kid Acne’s first solo exhibit in the city, and follows a pair of solo exhibitions in London at Concrete Hermit and Stolenspace over the last year. The intriguing title alludes to a motto first coined by William Faulkner, and used by writers to describe the action of cutting the most cherished characters and scenes from their story. […]
