Recap: Cai Guo-Qiang – “The Ninth Wave” @ Power Station of Art (Part II)

After sharing photos of the high profile installation and an in depth look at the creation of new commissioned pieces for his new show in Shanghai, we now turn our attention to Cai Guo-Qiang’s explosive opening festivities at the Power Station of Art. The multi-color aerial spectacular hosted at the riverfront of the museum was a crowd pleaser and highlighted the firework art skills from the Chinese artist. Entitled Elegy, Consolation, and Remembrance, each chapter of the performance had special meaning from color to alluded imagery. Photo credit: Zhang Feiyu & […]

Glades will feature the German artist’s nature-infused paintings, a byproduct his inspiration for art always originating from his times spent in the mountains and forests. Of course, there is a surreal aspect to his work as well, sourced from the times where he experiences uncanny or eerie feelings in the outdoors – like jogging through the woods at dusk. […]

Openings: Sam Falls – “Light Over Time” @ MetroTech Center

The Los Angeles-based Sam Falls recently returned to Brooklyn for an outdoor project with the help of The Public Art Fund.

There are five sculptural works placed in select locations that invite the viewer to interact with the pieces. Whether it’s a tetris-like bench that changes color depending on the temperature or a large wind chime that can be rung, it’s pretty fitting to enjoy Fall’s simple design […]
