Tonight (May 18th) at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, Souther Salazar will be presenting his fourth solo with the gallery entitled Souvenirs. The show will feature a selection new paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations by the Portland-based artist inspired by the Trading Tortoise, his recent collaboration with his wife, Monica Choy. As you can see in Salazar’s artistic version of the project in the painting above, the two created an interactive art installation in the form of a tortoise-shaped trading post where fans come to barter objects and [...]

Tomorrow night (May 18th) in New York, Andy Kehoe returns for his third solo show with Jonathan LeVine Gallery with new works collectively entitled Luminous Reverie. Continuing a new process (sculpted elements mixed in with poured resin and paint) first revealed to us during a show in Los Angeles last year (covered), the Pittsburgh-based painter has given his human-animal hybrid figures and forested backgrounds new life. The title of the show refers to “the idea of experiencing clarity of vision when lost in a daydream,” certainly something that can be imagined [...]
Brooklyn-based art duo The Yok and Sheryo are opening their solo exhibition at Krause Gallery in NYC tonight. After showing in Berlin, Tokyo, Sydney, Taipei, Beijing, Singapore Bangkok and Hong Kong, the Australian born artist and his partner in crime, Sheryo, are introducing their latest body of work in the city they’ve been living and working in last year.

One of the art fairs that has hitched its wagon to Frieze is that of the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA). This year’s NADA fair moved to a new spacious location on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and presented a nice range of emerging and mid-career artists. Booths that caught our eye included LA’s M+B, showing Jessica Eaton (seen above) and Toronto’s Cooper Cole showing Georgia Dickie and Lauren Luloff. In addition, the Brooklyn Academy of Music unveiled a new limited edition portfolio featuring prints by such [...]
Frieze returned to New York City this weekend, and again put on an top-notch art fair that challenges the dominance of The Armory Show. Like last year, the event was held on scenic Randall’s Island and featured many of the world’s most respected galleries and artists. We visited the fair multiple times over the weekend, and will post about specific booths that caught our eye. But first, here’s a general overview of some of what we enjoyed from Frieze NYC 2013.
Last week, the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York hosted the opening of JR and José Parlá’s collaborative showing entitled The Wrinkles of the City, Havana. The joint works were based on the time they spent in Cuba a year ago painting street murals together (covered) as part of JR’s continuing project Wrinkles of the City where he photographs senior citizens and pastes their portraits on the walls of city buildings. An example of this was outside the showspace in the form of a mural which the two created several weeks ago (covered). Take a look at all the [...]
Coming up on Memorial Day weekend (May 25th), the Last Rites Gallery in New York will be hosting a show dedicated to artists and their love for zombies. The group show curated by Travis Louie will feature work inspired by the undead and include artists like Mia Araujo, Matt Dangler, Fred Harper, Sarah Joncas, Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Allison Sommers, Chet Zar, and more (see full list below). And, if the piece above by John Cebollero inspired by Munch’s The Scream is any indication, there [...]
The French street artist and photographer seems to be everywhere. After our interview with JR last month, he has since brought his Wrinkles of the City project to Berlin (streets and in the gallery), premiered his latest film at the Tribeca Film Festival, got up on Riker’s Island, and gifted New York with a new collaborative show and mural with José Parlá. As if that was not enough, the self-styled “photograffeur” also found time to bring his mobile photobooth van (first seen in Japan) to the [...]
