Teaser: “Dreams Deferred” @ Chinese American Museum

While the genocide of Native Americans, the enslavement of Africans, and the more recent agitation about illegal immigration is a familiar topic to many, what the Chinese in America have endured remains an unfamiliar subject to most. So little is taught about the discriminations the Chinese faced in the late 1800’s and early to mid 1900’s that sadly, many Chinese-Americans today don’t even know their own history. For example, did you know that the only law to exclude a certain race from the US was […]

Viewpoints / Openings: Richard Hambleton pop-up show @ The Dairy, London

Three weeks ago, AM attended the London preview for the pop-up exhibition Richard Hambleton New York. Upon entering the venue, it wasn’t immediately clear whether we’d arrived at an art show or a fashion show. The heaving crowd and large amount of perfume in the air may have disoriented us slightly; we were left hesitating between taking pictures of the art on the walls and the clothes people were wearing. What’s certain is that the event was glamourous, and it’s been a long time since […]

Studio Visit: Supakitch

AM caught up with French-born, Brooklyn-based artist Supakitch at his studio and got a sneak peek of a large new body of work slated for his solo show entitled I Was Born to Be Different, opening in mid-December at Galerie Elegance in Taiwan. Supa is an artistic jack of all trades—painter, print-maker, fashion-designer and tattoo artist. He easily switches between mediums, and even more impressive, mixes them with his love of DJ/hip-hop music and Japanese manga & anime, into his own coherent and unique aesthetic, […]

Basel Week Miami ’10 Barry McGee Book Signing

Much like with the KAWS signing (covered), we informed you earlier in the week that Barry McGee would host a signing for his new book at the Ratio 3 booth during Art Basel Miami Beach. His impressive clusters constructed at the Bay Area booth (covered), much like those at the Roberts & Tilton’s space (covered), served as the perfect backdrop for Barry to spend some time with fans and beautify some copies of his brilliantly assembled book produced by Alleged Press and Damiani Editore. The […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: Roberts & Tilton

Another of the many temporary Los Angeles gallery transplants with an impressive booth at Art Basel Miami Beach was Roberts & Tilton (teased). Intriguing work in an array of mediums from Kehinde Wiley, Ed Templeton, Titus Kaphar, Noah Davis, Jimmy Baker, Ai Yamaguchi, Adam Pendleton and Ellen De Meutter were presented in striking fashion. Much like with Ratio 3 (covered), a large chunk of real estate was set aside for Barry McGee to unleash another of his dynamic cluster installations. All told, a solid presentation […]

Videos: Art Basel Miami 2010

For those of you who feel photos are not enough for the full Art Basel experience, you will enjoy this new video from Vernissage TV. Although still not quite like being their yourself (we aren’t rubbing it in), the footage can give you an idea of how huge the main fair is and how massive the amount of art involved is.
