Teaser: Banks Violette @ Blum & Poe

Thanks to Blum & Poe, the Los Angeles art world will be welcoming in the new year with a thunderous bang.  Banks Violette will be showing solo in the City of Angels for the first time ever (he’s shown at a B&P before in a 2006 group show and had a two-person exhibit at Peres Projects in 2004) and given the size and prestige of the gallery, we have a lot to be excited about.  Information, including the name of the exhibition, is not yet […]

Teasers: KAWS – “FOCUS:KAWS” @ Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

In the wake of Hold the Line last month in Los Angeles, KAWS will upgrade his relentless work ethic to the museum level over the ensuing year. We first saw the Brooklyn-based artist make his museum solo debut last summer at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Connecticut. Then, with a host of museum group exhibitions already under his belt, Jeffrey Deitch selected him for their record setting exhibition Art in the Streets this past spring at MOCA. Now, the surging contemporary artist will have […]

Frieze ’11 – Mark Ryden @ Paul Kasmin Gallery

After recently bringing you preview coverage of what Team Gallery has in store for next weekend’s Frieze Art Fair, we now have a (USDA) prime sample of what Paul Kasmin Gallery will be serving up at the London event. Much like the single awe-striking painting brought abroad last year, Mark Ryden has yet again proven his idiosyncratic genius with this newest creation. Marrying his affinity for Honest Abe and his love for painting meat comes The Meat Shop. The two recurring protagonists – the complicated […]

Teaser: Occupy Los Angeles – SABER

Following-up on his massively innovative and talked-about takeover of the skies of Los Angeles, SABER flexes his protest muscles once again, this time on solid ground.  Big government, corrupt  politicians, and banks beware as the legendary graffiti writer joins the Occupy Los Angeles movement.  If you are in the area, come out to downtown Los Angeles early Sunday morning and be a part of history.  For the latest updates, check SABER’s Twitter account.

Releases / Teasers: Josh Keyes – “Scorch I” @ Sink or Swim Benefit Show (San Francisco)

After almost three years of tireless wishful thinking and outspoken groveling amongst diehard Josh Keyes collectors, Scorch I will finally see a print release this coming weekend. Originally exhibited at SCOPE NY in 2009, the painting, along with another now iconic work, really turned heads at the fair and marked a fairly sizable conceptual and technical leap forward, converting casual observers into permanent admirers of Josh’s work. Adding to the lore of it all, the paintings were released on a first-come, first-serve basis by David B […]

Teaser: Matthew Palladino @ Texas Contemporary Art Fair

With a successful NYC exhibition back in June that saw strong institutional interest, the ever-dynamic Matthew Palladino (interviewed) looks to continue exploiting his near never-ending supply of creative juices with his most recent painting. Destined for the Texas Contemporary Art Fair, the hypnotic painting executed in his color rich, isometric perspective (or “fake” perspective, as Matthew originally self-ascribed), producing that uniquely flat, two dimensional aesthetic of a three-dimensional environment, will be on display at the Eli Ridgway booth (formerly Baer Ridgway, with co-owner Kent Baer […]

Set-up / Teasers: Retna – ‘The Hallelujah World Tour’ (London) @ The Dairy

Retna has been keeping himself busy recently — among other things, by participating in the Art in the Streets exhibition at MOCA, Street Cred at the Pasadena Museum of California Art, and painting the tail of a business jet in Geneva for VistaJet. He’s currently in the UK for the London limb of his Hallelujah World Tour which began in New York City in February (featured).  The pop-up event is being held at the Dairy, with the opening taking place on the evening of Wednesday […]

Teaser: Art HK ’11 – Yoshitomo Nara @ Blum & Poe

For the fourth edition of the premier contemporary Asian art fair, with weight only being added to the significance of the growing event in the wake of the Art Basel founders’ recent purchase of the fair, Blum & Poe will make their presence known at Art HK ’11 with an impressive lineup of artists. Arguably, leading the charge for the Los Angeles contemporary art powerhouse will be a selection of work from Yoshitomo Nara, who we last saw during his retrospective, Nobody’s Fool (covered), at […]

Streets / Teaser: Invader – “1000” @ Galerie Le Feuvre (Paris)

MOCA’s indoor space (covered), along with the surrounding outdoor landscape (covered), was infiltrated by Invader’s mosaic minions for Art in the Streets. Apparently, his street invasion, while technically unsanctioned, was so egregious that he was bestowed the unwelcome honor as the first artist to be arrested – though later released and allowed to leave the country – by Los Angeles Police. The LAPD have made their opposition and misplaced animosity regarding the museum exhibit crystal clear, as if on some tireless terrorist hunt wasting resources […]
