A couple weekends ago in Chelsea, we attended this year’s Editions|Artists’ Book Fair, which brought together contemporary fine art print and art book publishers and dealers from around the world. There were so many amazing editions to see, including a new limited edition print by Fred Tomaselli created especially for this year’s fair. See all our pics from the fair, after the jump.

The other night, we attended a great event held at the Wooster St. Social Club for Aidan Has A Posse, a website raising funds for and awareness about Aidan Seeger. Aidan is a young boy who has Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), a rare neurological disorder. But he also has a lot of friends, a posse including the likes of Cope2, Tony Curanaj, Ewok, Todd James, Romon Kimin Yang, Greg Lamarche, Steve Powers and Kostas Seremetis – all of whom donated art works to be auctioned off to […]

Opening last Thursday at Yossi Milo was the latest show by talented NY-based Scandinavian photographer, Simen Johan. Johan has developed a unique method in which he photographs animals and plants in nature preserves and then uses sculptural and digital techniques to seamlessly incorporate them into environments of his creation. This exhibition continues with his series entitled Until the Kingdom Comes, which was shown at the gallery in 2010, as well as in the Frist Center for Visual Arts in Nashville, the 21c Museum in Louisville […]
Last Thursday, Walton Ford opened his latest exhibition at Paul Kasmin, entitled I Don’t Like to Look at Him, Jack. It Makes Me Think of that Awful Day on the Island. Taking its name from the 1933 film King Kong, the show includes three Kong-sized works on paper, capturing the beast in several facial expressions. In addition, Ford displays a series of paintings that are more representative of his modern-naturalist style. Based off a quote from John Audobon’s memoirs in which he recounted a childhood […]

Opening a couple weeks ago at Midtown Manhattan’s fordPROJECT was Reflections, a exhibition of three contemporary Japanese painters curated by fordPROJECT’s director Rachel Vancelette in collaboration with Tokyo’s Tomio Koyama Gallery. The highlight of the show for us was Hideaki Kawashima, who presented a mix of his newer style, more realistic paintings and his older style, more atmospheric ones, including a series of simple portraits that perfectly addressed the theme of reflection. Alongside Kawashima were two younger artists, Makiko Kudo and Toru Kuwakubo. Kudo’s work […]
Currently showing at Lehmann Maupin is Home Within Home, the latest exhibition by Korean artist Do Ho Suh. The show is centered around two amazing sculptural installations that each deal with the artist’s feelings of cultural displacement stemming from the time when he moved from Korea to the United States to study art. Suh physically represents the culture clash he experienced in the piece entitled Home Within Home: an incredibly detailed dollhouse version of his student home in Providence, RI, that has been partially destroyed […]
Last week was the start of another art season in NYC, and Joshua Liner Gallery started it if off with a bang with East Weets Mest, the second full-gallery solo exhibition by Brooklyn-based, Japanese artist Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed). Being great admirers of Matsu’s work and having seen some of the pieces during our recent studio visit, our expectations for this show were high, and we were not at all let down. Matsu put together an exciting collection of paintings and sculptures, diverse yet cohesive, which […]
