On May 7th, the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery will be opening up The Wrinkles of the City, Havana, Cuba, a collaborative showing between JR and José Parlá. Featuring twelve large portraits and a site specific installation, the exhibition will showcase works that were put up by the two friends during their time in Cuba (covered) for JR’s continuing project of photographing senior citizens and pasting their portraits on the walls of city buildings. These pieces were then covered with Parlá’s urban calligraphy leading to an epic result that may have […]

Last week, we attended Joshua Liner’s opening of his new Chelsea gallery with a group exhibition entitled Direct Address. The expansive ground-floor space was filled with a impressive collection of works by The Clayton Brothers, David Ellis, Evan Hecox, Jean-Pierre Roy, Kris Kuksi (above), Richard Colman, Stephen Powers, SWOON, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Tony Curanaj and others. The event surely heralds great things for the future of the gallery. See all our pics from the opening below.
A little while back, AM attended the opening for WK Interact’s mid-career survey at Jonathan LeVine’s pop-up outpost. Entitled WK 360 (previewed), this all-inclusive exhibition collected artwork from the past 25 years by the notable French-born & New York-based street artist’s storied career. From indoor to outdoor, WK has always fascinated us with two aspects of his art. The first is his ability to capture the kinetic energy through his motion driven works and the the second is his intricate and equally creative street “contraptions” that are […]
Little known fact: sometimes between the large scale murals by invited artists, the prominent Bowery & Houston wall also hosts temporary tribute projects in the interim such as the one held for Dash Snow after his passing in 2010 (covered). Prior to the mural Crash created recently (here & here), another tribute came up for legendary photographer Martha Cooper, a woman who has definitely left her mark on the Graffiti & Street Art scene over the past few decades. She’s also been the official photographer for […]
It’s always interesting to watch artists work on collaborations as they try to meld their different techniques and imagery together in a coherent fashion. One of the more successful artists in doing this is street artist and photographer JR (see his joint ventures with Vhils, Os Gemeos, André, Liu Bolin, and José Parlá in the past). The latest artist to work with the French photograffeur is NY-based sculptor Daniel Arsham featuring JR’s famous eye pasted inside Arsham’s sculptural elements. Discuss JR here.
