Upcoming: Junko Mizuno – “Takarabune” @ Nucleus Gallery

Tonight in Los Angeles, Nucleus Gallery will be hosting a new exhibition from Junko Mizuno entitled Takarabune.

Showing: Ai Weiwei – “Laundromat” @ Deitch Projects

Currently at Deitch Projects in New York through December 23rd, Ai Weiwei has an immersive installation on view entitled Laundromat. Continuing to address the refugee crisis in Europe, the Chinese artist (once a refugee himself) has filled the large space with garments, shoes, and personal effects that he acquired from the refugee camps housing Syrian immigrants near the border of Greece, along with snippets of media coverage and photos he took. The wet and soiled items were left behind in Idomeni as the refugees moved on, at […]

Showing: Gee Vaucher – “Introspective” @ Firstsite

Gee Vaucher has recently opened an exhibition entitled Introspective at Firstsite in Colchester. This is the first major show of her art in the UK and it spans the last 50 years of the multi-disciplinary artist’s practice. The work from the first half of her career is characterized by searing political satire, which was intended as a force for social change. This included publishing the nihilist newspaper International Anthem and working for the New York Times, where she first started using collage. Her continuing relevance […]

Showing: Mode 2 – “Preludes” @ Openspace

Mode 2 opened a new exhibition, Preludes, at Galerie Openspace in Paris last Saturday. The title refers to those moments of heightened anticipation when waiting for something exceptional, like when a beat is about to drop or a B-boy is swaggering onto the stage. The show is divided between four distinct rooms with the work concerned with the ‘universality of music through motion, dancing, writing and visual composition.’ The Mauritian-born artist’s work has its roots in graffiti and strongly references three other elements of hip-hop. However, his […]

Basel Week Miami ’16: NADA Art Fair

If the Art Basel Miami Beach (covered) is considered the main event every year during Basel Week Miami, then NADA Miami Beach is certainly the much-awaited encore (Art Basel typically opens on Weds to VIPs and NADA opens the next morning on Thurs.). It is where new discoveries are more often made, as NADA typically includes younger galleries, with newer programs and fresher artists. It does not focus nearly as much historic or secondary works. In its 14th edition, the fair relocates back to Deuville Beach Resort, from the Fontainebleau Miami Beach […]

Upcoming: No Commission Art Fair (London)

Following the success of previous events in Miami in 2015 (covered) and New York in 2016 (covered), London will be the first European city to host immersive art and music event No Commission presented by The Dean Collection & Bacardi from December 8-10. Curated by music producer Swizz Beatz, the art fair is designed specifically to support both new and established artists. All participants are given their exhibition space for free and 100% of the sale of each artwork goes directly to the artists. Immersive music performances from event collaborator […]

Showing: Dustin Yellin – “10Parts” @ Grimm Gallery

Coinciding with the Amsterdam Art Weekend, Grimm Gallery opened Dustin Yellin’s show 10Parts on November 25th. With a twenty-foot long modular glass landscape across ten panels as the showpiece, this is the American artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and will stay on view through the 7th of January. Yellin has been known for creating effective “three dimensional collages or two dimensional sculptures.” By cutting out images from magazines and placing them between glass plates, he achieves a striking effect of depth, but also creates sort […]

Basel Week Miami ’16 / Showing: Jose Parla – “Roots” @ YoungArts Jewel Box

One of the must-see satellite events of this year’s Basel Week Miami was definitely a solo show by Jose Parla that is on view at YoungArts from the 29th of November until the 15th of December. Roots features an all new body of work created exclusively for this site-specific showing that the artist created at the iconic Jewel Box (2100 Biscayne Boulevard). Inspired by putting on a major exhibition in his hometown, the NYC-based artist created a series of large canvases and sculptures that are reference the connection of the past, […]

On December 10th, beinArt Gallery will be opening a new three person show entitled Myth and Mutation featuring the work of Adrian Cox, Christopher Ulrich, and Amanda Sage.
