Previews: St. Monci – ‘Adventures in Technicolor’ @ 1975 Gallery

St. Monci is an artist that has been catching our eye lately. From his delicately composed gallery work to his large scale murals, his clean line-work and use of colour presents a strong abstract aesthetic. This weekend, he opens his solo exhibition at Rochester, NY’s 1975 Gallery. Adventures in Technicolor opens on Saturday, 7th September, and from the looks of these installation shots taken by photographer Hannah Betts it would be well worth checking out in person if you are in the area.  

Setup / Showing: Hyuro – “In/Between” @ ArtRebels

Last night, ArtRebels in Copenhagen hosted an opening In/Between, solo exhibition from Hyuro, her first in the Danish capital.

We now have photos to share with you from the setup as well as shots of the individual paintings. The show runs through June 15th and we will also be bringing you a look soon at a 271 meter long wall she painted while she […]

Tonight in Copenhagen, Dennis McNett (featured) opened his latest solo show at MOHS Exhibit entitled Wolfbats Are Real. For those who know of the Brooklyn-based print installation artist, you will be familiar with him spreading the lore of his hybrid creature with exhibitions, installations, and Viking ship performances (see New York in 2010). On display for this show in Denmark will be many of the artifacts from the related events of this mythic animal and legend featuring imagery which is influenced by the early 80s skateboard and punk […]

Setup: “Direct Address: An Inaugural Group Exhibition” @ Joshua Liner

Previously on the third floor of the 548 W. 28th st. arts building in Chelsea, the gallery has recently moved to a prime street-level space next door (540 W. 28th St) and is set to launch a new set of exhibitions this Thursday that will utilize the entire upgraded 2,600 sq. ft. of real estate. We snuck in as the construction crews […]

Setup: WK Interact – “WK 360” @ Jonathan LeVine (Pop-up)

Tonight, WK Interact will be exhibiting a large body of work at Jonathan Levine gallery’s pop-up gallery location that housed How & Nosm’s recent showcase. This show, entitled WK 360, is an expansive mid-career survey of the first 25 years that WK has created in the world of art, both indoors & out. AM joined the French-born & New York-based artist earlier this week as he and the gallery worked feverishly to put together this impressive showcase of the wild and ingenious “interactive” art work that […]

Preview / Setup: JR @ Watarium Museum (Tokyo)

If you remember, late last year, we shared with you some photos of JR touring Japan to spread his Inside Out love in his giant photo booth / converted truck. Turns out, that was only a precursor for a show opening officially this weekend at the Watarium Museum in Tokyo. As you can see from these preview images, the French “photograffeur” is already busy prepping the outside and inside of the institution with his distinctive work. Photos via Alabaz and the artist. Discuss JR here.

Setup: Remio & Tim Diet @ Guerrero Gallery

AM recently stopped by San Francisco to visit Guerrero Gallery and caught the setup by Remio & Tim Diet as they prepared for their opening this Saturday. First up is Remio, known as a great writer around the world (part of both Barry McGee’s DFW/THR and Os Gemeos’ VLOK crew), bringing a impactful show entitled Man In Transition. Moving his street roots into the gallery realm, we enjoyed his “cluster faces” where he painted faces based on his graff style. At face value, it may look simple, but upon closer inspection the colors & textures […]
