Daniel Arsham currently has on display his first solo presentation in Japan at Nanzuka Gallery in Tokyo, also his second in Asia following his show at Galerie Perrotin in Hong Kong last autumn (covered).

Recap: Barry McGee @ MC06 // Monster Children

Barry McGee has always been known for doing things the unconventional way – from mediums used to installing and organizing shows, he keeps finding new ways to do the unexpected. His recent RVCA-supported show in Sydney, on the 17th of March, at Sydney’s Monster Children Magazine’s MC06 space was an example of that. Back for a show in Australia after an 11 year absence, Barry setup a one night event that lasted for two hours sharp. This time, there was no large installations, flipped vans, big clusters of smaller works or any of the […]

Showing: Eric Yahnker – “Noah’s Yacht” @ Zevitas Marcus

Last weekend, Zevitas Marcus in Los Angeles hosted the opening of a new solo show from Eric Yahnker. Noah’s Yacht features works created from colored pencils and graphite on paper, rendered with the locally-based artist’s continued clever commentary on issues that afflict our society today touching on topics like the current election cycle and police violence. Rounding out the show are various sculptural works, installations, and conceptual pieces all showing his versatility and knowledge of pop culture and the social-political climate, often times intermixing the two.
