Banksy’s “Exit Through The Gift Shop” Oscar Nominated

It’s been months of buzz and speculation since the Exit Through The Gift Shop documentary made the 15 movie long-list for this year’s Oscars. Well, the Academy just announced the final five films for the category of Best Documentary and AM favorite Banksy got the nod for the groundbreaking “Street Art Disaster Film.” Even with nominations already announce from BAFTA, BFCA, Spirit Award & Cinema Eye Honors (Full award list here), we didn’t want to jinx this high profile nomination by saying anything. Now we can […]

AM KAWS Standard Light Bulbs 01

Details: KAWS x The Standard Light Bulb Set

We’re suckers for a great idea and also impatient when it comes to waiting for the delivery guys. So after posting about the KAWS x Standard Light Bulb Set, we headed to The Standard NY to cop this hot collaboration. Upon arrival, we were excited to see the shop already had the bulbs nicely installed. Even in the daylight the glowing XX’s were apparent from the dangled housing. The boxes were cleanly packaged and reminded us of our first fresh box of KK’s! Like all […]

Showing: Sweet Toof & Shan Hur – ‘Having a Dig’ @ Arch 402 Gallery

AM went to check out Sweet Toof and Shan Hur’s work last week in the two-person exhibition Having a Dig. Arch 402 Gallery was a new name for us, but the location was good, and the brickwork arched space located under an overground railway worked well for this pairing of very different artistic styles. Shan Hur plays with structure and has embedded a series of vintage brass horns into the very walls of the gallery. The archaeological removal on concrete around the instruments was left […]

Streets: Dain (New York)

We’ve showed you some of Dain’s gallery work in the past (New York ’09, Paris ’10), but not much of his street work. It looks like what may be new pieces have popped up recently in Brooklyn and luckily for us, the Brooklynite Gallery was around to document it. More after the jump…

Releases: Kid Acne – ‘When the Smoke Clears’ Zine

AM got all enthused late last year over Kid Acne’s solo show (covered) at Concrete Hermit entitled When the Smoke Clears. For us, the defining part of the installation was the wall of small one-off screenprinted drawings in all their black and pink splendour. Well, if that monochromatic installation floats your boat, you can now thumb through the series of drawings in Kid Acne’s brand new When the Smoke Clears Zine. Produced with a screenprinted, embossed and numbered cover, the 52 page zine is available […]
