It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the Brooklyn-based Beau Stanton (featured). Well, he’s about to unveil a new show tonight at New York’s Bold Hype Gallery. Entitled Archaic Ornaments, this fresh body of work is somewhat of an extension and evolution from his last show in San Francisco.

What up INTERNET!? Last week your boy… Hennessy Youngman presented a fresh show at Maurizio Cattelan’s Family Business Gallery. Initially invited by Marilyn Minter for an exhibition, Youngman decided to open up this opportunity to all the local artists to submit their artwork. The show entitled Itsa small, small world ended up being maxed out the first day with submitted artwork. For the opening night celebration, the web persona was in full effect, staying true to his hilarious Art Thoughts (our favorites here & here) […]
In March, D*Face (interviewed) paid a visit to New York City for a little Armory Week action.

AM recently attended the Olek’s latest show at New York City’s Krause Gallery. Yes, we said NYC.

Using synthetic rubber, she built an cave installation by weaving semi-inflated balloons in a way that would make even Krusty the Clown blush. Designed to obscure the viewer’s vision, the cave is […]

Inspired by the lily padded ponds located on the estate, E.V. invited Pfahler to the actual garden to shoot the photos in this exhibition. And, through Playboy’s sponsorship, the gallery was transformed into a living breathing garden […]
On Friday night, AM attended the opening for Ryan McGinness’ new show at New York’s Pace Primative. As the title Geometric Primitives indicates, Ryan utilizes his signature vocabulary of graphics and applies them to the African works that are at the core of the this specific gallery. Sounds simple right? Well this knock out exhibition is definitely more than meets the eye as Mr. McGinness raided the vast archives of African tribal art at gallery for reference, then proceeded to use repeated drawings to break down each […]
