Basel Week Miami ’09 – Misa Inaoka @ NADA

As you wonder through the endless booths at all the different fairs at Art Basel, you often chance on some unexpected new artists. One of those moments for us this year was San Francisco-based Misa Inaoka and her mutant bird sculptures exhibiting with Johansson Projects at the NADA art fair. Not only did each unique sculpture seem to be created from some strange animal part junkyard, but the pieces had motorized joints and twisted intermittently. More images after the jump…

Koons Train Derailed

The Jeff Koons – LACMA $25 million train project previously reported here appears to have hit a snag on the rails, err road. The idea may have sounded great several years ago, but with the current economic climate and in light of the decline of museum’s investment portfolio and donations, the project has been delayed and may be shelved completely. Via Bloomberg. Discuss Jeff Koons here.

Video: Brendan Monroe @ Richard Heller Gallery

For those that missed Brendan Monroe’s (interviewed) solo at Richard Heller Gallery last month (covered), you also missed out on a fantastic “constellation” installation. Fortunately for you, we recorded some footage of all the hanging sculptures for you to enjoy. As an added bonus, check out another video of the back room in the gallery space that included a sitting sculpture and wall installation after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’09: SCOPE Fair

If you have been following our coverage, you will know that many of our previews this year for Art Basel Week were from the SCOPE fair. This is because many of the galleries and artists we follow decided to make a showing there. We stopped by to take a look today and snapped some pics to share with you all. This large “finger-cutting” installation from Judith Supine certainly held our attention at the New Image Art booth. Take a look at what else caught our […]

Update: Allison Sommers

Allison Sommers (interviewed) recently completed one of her delightful little sculptures of the mischievous creatures from her paintings – “Little Diedrich.” She writes – “A meat cake, a sheet cake filled with hammy treats cake… so could be heard the siren-song of little Diedrich, waiting in the woods for an unsuspecting traveler to sample his gaily-frosted, heavenly-delicious confectionaries…” Look for more sculptures and paintings in her next solo show at Thinkspace in May of 2010. More views of Deidrich after the jump…

Openings: Kris Kuksi – “Beast Anthology” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

On Saturday night, AM was on hand to experience the surreal sculptures of Kris Kuksi as Joshua Liner Gallery hosted the opening of his latest show the “Beast Anthology.” As seen in our preview of the show, the show looked like a literal monster, but nothing prepared us for seeing the work in person. The physical intricacies of his craftsmanship coupled with the fantastical stories unfolding in every piece held the packed house in a unique trance that we’ve rarely experienced from an art show in New York. […]
