Upcoming: Robert Lazzarini – (damage) @ Marlborough Gallery (Chelsea)

This Thursday (January 10th), the Marlborough Gallery in Chelsea will be hosting the opening of Robert Lazzarini newest solo – (damage). The New York-based sculptor is known for his mind-bending works that take everyday objects and distorts them, leading the viewer to try to wrap their brain and eyes around the creation – oftentimes failing. For this exhibition, it sounds like Lazzarini will be twisting a window (above), safe, chain-linked fence, liquor sign, padlock, and motel door to disorient the audience, evoking an unsettling reaction.

Upcoming: Faile – “Les BALLETS de FAILE” @ Lincoln Center

It’s a brand new year and the Patrick’s (aka FAILE) are leading things off with a special project that’s been under wraps for quite a while. Earlier in the year when we visited Faile’s studio while they were working on their trip to Mongolia, we were excited to learn about an upcoming collaborative endeavor with the New York City Ballet, but we were asked to keep this project air tight. The time has come now to share with you information about the large-scale exhibition at the Lincoln Center that will feature the many […]

Preview: Aakash Nihalani – “Portal” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Coming up on the 12th, the solo at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery from Haroshi that we shared news with you earlier will be accompanied by a new body of work from Aakash Nihalani. Both artists share a three-dimensionality to their aesthetic so it should be an interesting pairing. For Nihlani’s part, entitled Portal, the showing will feature his increasingly intricate geometric forms which always seem to have a playful element to them. Perhaps this is due to the interactive nature of his work on the […]

Upcoming: Haroshi – “Virtual Reality” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Building on his successful showing there in 2011 (covered), Japanese artist Haroshi will be returning to the Jonathan LeVine Gallery for another solo show (opening January 12th). Known for his increasingly complex sculptural works created from skateboards, he’ll be bringing a series of pieces with him collectively entitled Virtual Reality. You can add this to your calendar as one of the first shows to attend in 2013. Discuss this show here. Discuss Haroshi here.

Julia Chiang – “She’s Crafty” @ New Museum

We recently stopped by the New Museum to check out their latest artistic installation in the main lobby. Entitled She’s Crafty, this holiday pop up project gives 13 female artists a few days to bring their talents to share with museum goers. From Dec 12th to Dec 16th, Julia Chiang took stage and brought a mini temporary studio space where she created a host of works demonstrating a wide spectrum of her talents including her signature drip canvases and sculptures. One of our favorite pieces featured […]

Openings: DAL – “POWDER of LIGHT” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

After meeting up with DALeast & his wife and fellow street artist Faith47 during Basel Week Miami, we would be remiss to not mention his concurrent and current showing at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. POWDER of LIGHT ends this weekend at the New York showspace, but those that stop by will be rewarded by the Chinese-born, South Africa-based artist’s imagery created in his signature style of swirling vortexes of organic black lines. Check out the photos below… Photo credit: Manual Bello for Arrested Motion. Discuss this show here. Discuss […]

José Parlá Commissioned by the Barclays Center

Brooklyn certainly seems to be getting their fair share of high-profile art projects recently. After Barry McGee’s large scale mural (covered here & here) in October at the Mark Morris Dance Group, the borough will will now see the work of José Parlá adorn the new home of the Brooklyn Nets – The Barclays Center. The 70-foot-long mural entitled A Diary of Brooklyn will be unveiled early next month in the Dean Street lobby and will be visible from the street. This won’t be Parlá’s first public […]
