Basel Week Miami ’09: Pulse Fair

Sometimes, it takes stepping out of your comfort zone to get a fresh perspective on the way one views art. That is what Pulse did for us in Miami. From the moment we entered the fair, we noticed many galleries and artists that we weren’t accustomed to viewing. We constantly found ourselves stopping and asking more questions about “what is that?” and “who made it?” than any other fair during Art Basel Week. A truly rewarding experience. Check out all the visual nuggets we dug up after […]

Basel Week Miami ’09 – Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba @ Mizuma

As many art fans know, art isn’t just about the finished product; it’s often the process and inspiration that it draws from. Unlike their previous art fairs, Mizuma Gallery focused it efforts at Art Basel with a solo project from Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba entitled “Breathing is Free: 12,756.3- Ho Chi Minh City 118.3 km.” This unique series of work focuses on Jun physically running 12,756 Kilometers – the diameter of the earth – utilizing a wrist GPS as he runs and via the magic of a […]

For KAWS collectors who follow the elusive and highly coveted 4 foot companion series, (here & here) it’s been a forgone conclusion that the final 4ft black dissected companion would be released.

Update: Chris Berens – “The Only Living Boy in New York” @ Sloan Fine Art

Last week, we gave you a taste (here) of what’s to come for the Chris Berens show opening up this Wednesday at Sloan Fine Art. AM stopped by the gallery while they were installing the new show to check out the new paintings first hand. The details are astounding with New York specific elements in some. Check out our exclusive first look at what will be a great show after the jump.

Openings: Audrey Kawasaki – “Hajimari – a prelude” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

When hype is built up, rarely does the show ever meet the expectations. Once in a blue moon does one actually surpass the expectations – which is exactly what this show did. Audrey Kawasaki opened up her much anticipated body of work “Hajimari – a prelude” (previewed) at Jonathan LeVine Gallery last weekend in New York City. The sold-out show drew a max capacity crowd that overflowed from the packed gallery space into the adjacent hallways. There were three lines going the whole night – one to get […]

Preview: James Marshall – “And There Was War in Heaven” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Opening tomorrow night at Jonathan LeVine Gallery is James Marshall’s (interviewed) latest show entitled “And There Was War in Heaven.” With this new body of work, the artist formerly known as Dalek continues down the path of near-total geometric abstraction, with few or no references remaining to his early space monkey character. In addition, Marshall has created several paintings with a more simplified style and a very recession-friendly pricing, which will no doubt interest old and new Dalek collectors alike. See the rest of the […]

Releases: Josh Keyes Book – “Sprout Catalog”

If you’re like us at AM, you can’t wait until Josh Keyes’ (interviewed) show  at Jonathan Levine Gallery (previewed). But to keep his eager fans happy in the meantime, David B. Smith Gallery will be releasing a hardback book next Tuesday cataloging his recent “Sprout” show (covered) and related pieces. We got an in depth look at this book at the DBS’ SCOPE booth and we must say that this book is not only gorgeous, but also features several multi-page layouts of some of Keyes’ best works to […]

Openings: Sashie Masakatsu – “De Facto Standard” @ Mizuma Gallery

Mizuma Gallery recently hosted the opening of Masakatsu Sashie’s latest body of work “De Facto Standard.” As mentioned in our preview, Sashie isn’t just content with his success using his spherical motifs. He seeks to redefine the mold of success with larger canvas sizes and unique “shapes” we have not yet seen from the young artist. From ginormous wall size canvases to a few select smaller pieces sporting some unseen before designs, Sashie is definitely going for the “less is more” approach with only six high quality paintings […]

Preview: Audrey Kawasaki – “Hajimari – a prelude” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Sometimes the more you see the more you want. After spending the weekend with Audrey Kawasaki at Baby Tattooville (here), we were eagerly awaiting the opening of “Hajimari – a prelude” at Jonathan Levine Gallery this Saturday. Well, Audrey just released some stunning in-process pictures of her latest batch of hypnotic beauties. It’s just a taste of what we expect will be a great show. Word of caution as this show not only looks fantastic, but also very addicting… Check out the preview images after […]
