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 […]

Teaser: Zhang Huan – “49 Days” @ Blum & Poe

Two big firsts are happening with artist Zhang Huan.  First, he is going to show solo at Culver City’s Blum & Poe for the first time.  Secondly, this will also be his first ever one-man exhibition in Los Angeles.  One of China’s preeminent artists today, Huan has worked in many different forms of art and media, including performance-based work, large-scale commissioned sculptures, painting and sculpture using incense ash, and has even reinterpreted an opera.  This time, the artist will be exhibiting brick sculptures and will […]

Teaser / Streets: FAME Festival ’11 – Moneyless (Grottaglie)

As the first artist to make his mark in Italy for the epic urban art festival FAME, Teo Pirisi (aka Moneyless) recently spent a week in the quaint town of Grottaglie, building up the local landscape with a series of his free floating geometric art installations in preparation for the outdoor art gathering that culminates in September. Examining the relationship between materials and design, the Italian artist transforms simple string into industrial architectural forms, often situating them in the rural countryside or derelict metropolitan structures. […]

Teaser: José Parlá – “Character Gestures” @ OHWOW (LA)

With a landmark exhibition at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, entitled Walls, Diaries, and Paintings (covered), just a couple months back in New York, José Parlá will look to parlay his creative juices on the West Coast with a showing this fall at OHWOW’s new Los Angeles space. Opening September 9th, Character Gestures will continue a long tradition of the Brooklyn-based artist and Miami-based institution collaborating together on epic exhibitions. As such, this iteration is sure to impress, providing Southern Californians their much over due fill […]

Teaser: Keith Haring @ Gladstone Gallery

On May 4th, Gladstone Gallery will open a rare exhibition of never before seen works by Keith Haring. Focusing on the early evolution of Haring’s raw visual language, the exhibition is anchored by three previously unseen live paintings on paper created during a series of Bill T. Jones performances hosted at The Kitchen in 1982. The exhibition will also present a selection of the NY legend’s early sketchbook drawings, along with a series of lithographs commissioned by gallery matriarch Barbara Gladstone in 1982, which would […]

Teaser: Katrin Fridriks – “Leak of Information” @ Circleculture Gallery (Berlin)

Last we saw Katrin Fridriks’ work, she stole a London group show (covered) with her signature abstract color explosions. It now appears she has muted the palette, akin to one of the works exhibited prior, presenting a selection of monochromatic works composed in her uniquely organic fashion. Opening Thursday, April 28th at Circleculture Gallery in Berlin, the Icelandic born Paris-based artist will be targeting the ubiquitous technological underpinnings of modern society with her departure to more metallic color tones – silver, gold, steel, cooper, aluminum. […]

Video / Teaser: Kehinde Wiley – “The World Stage: Israel” @ Roberts & Tilton

In the latest installment of Kehinde Wiley’s The World Stage series, the first since showing his India-Sri Lanka collection last year with Rhona Hoffman Gallery, some of which were exhibited at the gallery’s booth during Art Basel Miami, the New York-based artist has trained his provocative sights on Israel for his newest body of work. Opening Saturday, April 9th at Roberts & Tilton, the Los Angeles site of The World Stage: Brazil back in 2009, The World Stage: Israel will incorporate the historically rich and […]

Teaser: Jen Stark @ Show & Tell Gallery

After making heads turn at Art Basel Miami a few months back (covered), much like she did back in 2009 as well (covered), the psychedelically inclined Jen Stark will soon be exporting her unique brand of sculpture centric work north of the border to Show and Tell Gallery in Toronto. Opening Thursday, May 12th, collectors can expect a selection of her phenomenal geometric, gravity defying paper creations, all meticulously cut and constructed by hand. These sculptures are a meditation in patience and craftsmanship, the payoff […]

Update: Josh Keyes – “The Magician’s Garden” @ Fecal Face Dot Gallery

To build the anticipation for The Magicians Garden a little further, here is a snapshot from Josh Keyes’ studio, where he appears to have fully fleshed out the painting that we teased last month in its conceptual phase. Although it’s presumed that this show will be on the smaller side due to the spatial constraints of the gallery, Josh clearly is putting his all into the handful of works that will be exhibited, especially this one which looks to yet again continue the trend of […]

Teaser: Andy Denzler – “Freeze Frame Paintings” @ Michael Schultz Gallery (Seoul)

Swiss contemporary artist Andy Denzler will be dispatching a new body of work down to Seoul, Korea for an upcoming solo exhibition with Michael Shultz Gallery. Opening Thursday, Janurary 27th, the talented oil painter will show a selection of his uniquely constructed works, deliberately fragmenting his landscape based portraits in unusual ways. The resulting imagery almost has a look of a digital image in which the pixels had been reassembled imprecisely or the feel of a fading memory being recounted in ambiguous detail. With work […]
