Showing: Gert and Uwe Tobias “Untitled ’13” @ Team Gallery

New York’s Team Gallery recently launched a major new show by Romanian-born, Germany-based artists Gert and Uwe Tobias. For their third exhibition with Team, the twin brothers filled both of the gallery’s Soho locations with collaborative works of various mediums, all representing their unique modernism x folk art style. The Wooster Street space contained several of the Tobias’ large-scale woodblock prints for which they are best known, as well as a series of ceramic sculptures, whereas the Grand Street space was mostly filled with collages, […]

Frieze ’11: Overview

London’s Frieze week kicked off properly on Wednesday 12 October with the preview for Frieze Art Fair in Regent’s Park. AM has long been a Frieze enthusiast. The calibre of its exhibitors and their booths makes most other contemporary art fairs look provincial in comparison. Conscious of the international spotlight, the big fish bring out the big guns and do whatever else they can to retain their dominance, while the ambitious smaller galleries pull out the stops to try raising the bar even higher for […]

Openings: Marilyn Minter – “Paintings from the 80s” @ Team Gallery

AM recently attended the opening of Marilyn Minter’s latest show Paintings from the 80’s at New York’s Team Gallery. As the title suggests, this body of work is actually a retro showcase of paintings from earlier in her illustrious career. Unlike the stunning series of photographs or photorealistic paintings that most have experienced recently, Minter uses her painterly skills to explore her versions of raw pornographic snapshots paired in contrast with some imagery feature coming of age innocence. More NSFW pics after the jump.

Preview: Marilyn Minter – “Paintings from the 80s” @ Team Gallery

About 30 years before her inclusion in the 2006 Whitney Biennial and the appearance of her work on billboards in Chelsea, Marilyn Minter was already exploring issues of sexuality, glamor, fashion, the body, and commodification.   See the genesis of what has progressed to become her signature bold, hyper-realistic close-ups of glamorous and sexy lips, tongues, and other body parts at her show opening March 31 at Team Gallery.  Paintings from the 80s includes pieces created earlier in the artist’s career (in the 1980s surprisingly) […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: Team Gallery

With more time to explore the big fair, Art Basel Miami Beach, a stroll past Team Gallery’s booth (teased) was in order. With an apparent dwindling inventory of works from Ryan McGinley’s newest body of work, Life Adjustment Center (covered), due to the overwhelming success of the series, two of the strongest images from the collection still took center stage and concentrated the majesty of the New York based photographer’s stirring vision. A selection of works from Cory Arcangel, Massimo Grimaldi, Slater Bradley, Gardar Eide […]

The playful, yet poignant mixture of black and […]

Openings: Ryan McGinley – “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” @ Team Gallery

Thursday night, Ryan McGinley opened his latest body or work “Everybody Knows This is Nowhere” at SOHO’s Team Gallery. This homecoming show for the young and talented photographer was jammed packed from the opening moments – it almost seemed that every other attendee in the dense crowd was a friend or acquaintance of the renowned photographer. Ryan was very gracious as he took time to greet every fan that approached him. As we noted in our first preview, this body of work is a departure […]

Basel Week Miami ’09 – Ryan McGinley @ Team Gallery

We previewed Ryan McGinley’s works in this year’s Art Basel Miami previously, now prepare yourselves for pictures from Team Gallery’s booth at the fair.  No matter how you picture in your heads how the photographs from small compressed jpegs look framed and in person, it can not prepare you for how fantastic they truly look.  McGinley’s photographs were impressive in imagery, color, and size, going up to 108 inches.   According to Jose Freire, owner of Team Gallery, McGinley is meticulous in his perfection.  He […]

Preview: Basel Week Miami ’09 – Team Gallery x Ryan McGinley

After having been featured by Team Gallery at Art Basel Switzerland, the gallery is bringing Ryan McGinley’s newest works to Art Basel Miami.  The photographs being shown at the fair continues his Moonmilk series (remember his show at Alison Jacques Gallery?) and also includes some images from his most recent road trip.  The settings involve locations deep beneath the earth’s surface and now some on or above it.  They integrate the nude body into scenes of nature, almost blending them into one. More images and […]
