Openings: “Giant Robot Biennale” @ the Japanese American National Museum (Part II)

As we mentioned in Part I of our coverage of the Giant Robot Biennale, we saved four artists in the upper gallery to share with you in this article. The work of James Jean (interviewed), David Choe, Jeff Soto (interviewed), and Souther Salazar were definitely the highlights of the exhibition, at least in our minds. It seems like they put in the effort and time to create some of the best pieces we have ever seen from them. Take a look at all the amazing […]

Jeff Koons Rabbit in Covent Garden (London)

Apparently, a 53-foot inflatable rabbit found shelter inside London’s Covent Garden for a little while. Courtesy of one of the biggest Pop artists working today, Jeff Koons, the familiar rabbit is part of the Tate Modern’s current exhibition “Pop Life: Art in a Material World.” It is a floating replica of a figure that was produced in stainless steel in 1986.  That sculpture is currently on display at the Tate. More pictures after the jump…
