AM recently dropped by Jack Shainman Gallery in Chelsea to check out Odili Donald Odita’s latest exhibition Body and Space. The artist of Nigerian descent gave us a lesson in color and geometric layouts while utilizing a diverse and bold color palette. Odili engaged viewers with the question of “what color means to them” and had us going from the moment we set foot in the gallery space. Check it all out after the jump.

AM recently attended The Hole Gallery’s latest show Postermat. The group exhibition was a little different than the typical group show because they went all retro with it. Imagine going back to your childhood and rummaging through mall shops for your favorite posters of sports, rockbands, singers or even comic books – almost everyone had a cheap but cool poster that was maybe mass produced, but meant the world to us. In the same spirit, the good folks at the Hole and Levi’s, got together […]
When AM came back from our adventures during Basel Week down in warm Miami, we were greeted back in New York by freezing temperatures. Fortunately, “the twins” made a trip back with us back to the Big Apple. We caught the opening night at Lehmann Maupin Gallery where a great group show curated by Tiago Carneiro da Cunha was on display. The show’s central theme was “survival of the fittest” and featured Efrain Almeida, Caetano de Almeida, Ashley Bickerton, Joshua Callaghan, Marcos Chaves, Saint Clair Cemin, […]
As we mentioned in the Kris Kuski article, Joshua Liner Gallery’s booth was one of the most stunning that we saw at SCOPE Miami this year. Showcasing a trinity of heavy talent that the Chelsea gallery will represent in the upcoming year, it wasn’t a surprise to see passersby drawn to the dynamic displays. AM favorite Ian Francis (featured) created a fresh batch of works for Basel Week and his warped environments were as intriguing and hypnotic as we have come to expect from the […]
AM recently had the pleasure of attending a special group show curated by our friend Wendy Asher, who you may remember from her appearance in Exit Through the Gift Shop. Held at Indica on 11th (now known as Mallick Williams) in Chelsea, the show featured fresh works from Tobias Keene, Laura Keeble, Paul Hazelton, K-Guy and Nicolas Bowers. The opening was packed from the moment the doors were opened and we had to go back a second time to get a proper look at this great […]
New York may be freezing this time of the year, but for the holidays it has some of the coolest displays of public visuals. From Rocafeller Center to the Empire State Building, everything lights up for the hustle and bustle in the streets. This year, Ryan McGinness has created a special treat for the people who happen by Chelsea. Starting tomorrow a special exhibition Black Holes will be open at Phillips de Pury’s 15th St. location (Mon-Fri 10am-6pm). But wait there’s more. If you remember […]
The Wynwood Walls was a very unique project that brought the arts back to a worn down district of Miami. Along with the already gorgeous mural projects and indoor art cafe, this year brought another aspect to the Wynwood destination – a unique project space where Jonathan LeVine put on his Urban Alchemist group exhibition (previewed). We stopped by to hang out and soak in the works of AJ Fosik, Dan Witz, Doze Green, Invader, James Marshall (Dalek), Jim Houser, Judith Supine, Mario Martinez (Mars-1), […]
AM recently caught the opening night of Kid Zoom’s first ever US solo show This City Will Eat Me Alive. The large pop-up space opened by the Opera Gallery in the the hip meat packing district was a great setting to showcase KZ’s large size paintings. Just as we previewed in our recent studio visit, Kid Zoom utilized his signature spray techniques to create the works that delighted fans who made it out to see this body of work. Catch it all after the jump.
One of the most anticipated events of Basel Week Miami was the opening party for Ryan McGinness’ latest series of works Women: The New Blacklight Paintings. Presented by the folks at Country Club x The Standard Miami, the show was held inside a South Beach Strip Club (Club Madonna). Much like the mural which Ryan created for Wynwood Walls, the works took on another dimension once the black light hit. The stunning reactive paint just popped out for the viewers. Upping the ante for the opening, […]
AM recently attended a great show at the Sho Gallery in Brooklyn. The group exhibition entitled TRANSFORM showcased the paintings and sculptures of 30 artists that work for or have worked at Takashi Murakami’s Kaikai Kiki Studios. Although this show was not in anyway affiliated with the studio, it certainly impressed with the overwhelming talent that this influential studio possess. Artists such as Tat Ito (featured), Pete Watts (featured), Fumi Nakamura, Cybele, Matt Haber and Eugenia Yu gave us a glimpse at their off-hours talent in […]
