Earlier this month, the Buddy System Invitational (curated by Sven Davis) opened at the Breeze Block Gallery in Portland. The group exhibition centered on the interesting concept having each of the 22 invited artists bring along a fellow artist to exhibit alongside them with each contributing one 16 x 20″ & one 8 x 8″ artwork. Take a look at some photos from the opening below as well as the list of artists below and their “buddies.” Andrew Schoultz – Gianluca Franzese, Ben Venom – Megan Gorham, Brendan Monroe – Anders Oinonen, […]

Each of the 22 invited international artists were asked to bring along a fellow artist to exhibit alongside them – each producing one 16 x 20″ & one 8 x 8″ artwork.

Each artist is either making work on a found / owned postcard and adapting / adding […]
Later tonight, the Venice location for Gallery 1988 will be unveiling a two-person show from Scott Listfield and Jeff Gillette. The exhibition pairs Listfield’s astronaut pop culture-infused portraiture with Gillette’s postapocalyptic visions of the urban settings leading to an interesting look into the future perhaps from both artists. The show runs through February 24th. Discuss this show here.

On January 13th, the Gallery 1988 on Melrose will hold a group exhibition featuring, as inspiration, characters from the adult-oriented cable network that shares channel space with Cartoon Network. The opportunities for satire, irreverent commentary, and all out fun is limitless with the full slate of risque, unorthodox, and bizarre content up for grabs. For example, you will recognize the Mooninites from Aqua Teen Hunger Force in the piece above from Scott Listfield that also cleverly […]
