Upcoming: 2nd Annual “Ema Show” @ Hatos Bar (Tokyo)

Starting on February 13th, a show organized by Hellion Gallery will be showing in Tokyo at the Hatos Bar. It’s appropriate that the 2nd annual Ema Show will start in Japan as the concept was to have artists paint the small wooden plaques on which Shinto worshipers write their prayers or wishes. Each participant was given three of the Ema plaques, so there will be two more left for future shows at Hellion’s Portland space (April  7th) and Galerie Artistik Rezo in Paris (June 21st). The […]

Over the weekend, POW! WOW! Hawaii kicked off the festivities with a show curated by Thinkspace at the Honolulu Museum of Art School entitled Exploring The New Contemporary Movement, something they have done for the last two years before this (see 2015 & 2014).

Michael Kagan Liner Studio Visit AM  - 2

Studio Visits: Michael Kagan – “Lights Out” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

On February 11th, the Joshua Liner Gallery in New York will open a solo exhibition by Michael Kagan. Entitled Lights Out, this new body of work by the Brooklyn-based painter focuses on man’s moments of triumph over nature’s limits. As the name of the exhibition indicates, the Kagan pushes the boundaries of his amped up compositions to include situations in which there are nearly no margin for errors. One mistake/miscalculations would mean a literal end to the participant’s life. Expanding on his awe inspiring first show with the gallery (covered), Kagan […]
