Openings: David Choong Lee – “Acquiring Signal” @ LeBasse Projects

Representing San Francisco, the amazing David Choong Lee recently hauled down over 400 of his favorite works to LeBasee Projects in Culver City. The prolifically staged exhibition is as complete a representation of the artist’s skills as one imagines you can get. Lee takes over the entire gallery himself and the solo show features installations of panels, some from found materials, such as wooden wine crates, and has an architectural feel, as they rest on tables and balance on pillars. The artist explores such social […]

Openings: Retna Installation @ Rivera & Rivera

For the final exhibition in Rivera & Rivera’s South Park location, internationally-acclaimed, Los Angeles-based graffiti star Retna unveiled a ground to ceiling installation featuring his signature text-styled skills. The black and white work combined spray paint and fabric and covered the floor and 25-ft. high walls from top to bottom. The immersive work is a complete visual experience and takes you deep inside the artist’s universe. In addition, there was a private room where screen prints and paintings were shown.  See more images after the […]

Showing / Installation: Best | Ever “The Delicacy of Passion” @ Studio55

UK artist duo Best | Ever recently brought a selection of their work to London for a showcase entitled “The Delicacy of Passion”. The exhibition served as a teaser for a full scale solo show planned for this Autumn. The team of Hadley Newman and Neil Edward have been working together for the last year and a half after both honing their skills individually as artists and graffiti writers. For this show they created a heavily decorated setting for the work, applying their spray-can realism […]

Video: Faile – “Temple” @ PortugalArte ’10 (Vernissage TV)

After sharing some photos of the impressive Faile (featured) installation with you recently, we now bring you some video footage from Vernissage TV. Seeing the “Temple” in the context of the surrounding architecture in Praça dos Restauradores, one of the major squares in the center of Lisbon, definitely gives us more of an appreciation of what the Patricks accomplished. Not only did they fully execute a temple in “ruins” with their signature imagery, the Brooklyn duo were able to create something that fit in perfectly […]

Preview: Viva La Revolucion @ MCASD

AM headed down to San Diego on Friday morning to catch the press preview of Viva La Revolucion at MCASD (check out our street coverage here). It was great to wander around the Jacobs Building and get a sneak peek of everything the artists have been working on indoors after seeing all the amazing pieces that have been popping up on the streets of the city. Pedro Alonzo, the exhibition’s curator, led a talk around the museum and spoke about the different artists and their work. Shepard Fairey, David Ellis, Stephan […]

Preview / Installation: AJ Fosik & Bill McRight – “Count Back From Nothing” @ David B. Smith Gallery

David B. Smith Gallery weighs in this month with yet another stellar looking exhibition opening Friday, July 16th with the pairing of sculptors AJ Fosik and Bill McRight in the two person show “Count Back From Nothing”. Fosik’s three dimensional animalia sculptures have jumped off the walls at us here at AM on many occasions before, and we’re always excited to see what this artist brings with each set of new work. The layering of found wood and other elements that goes into each of […]

Openings: Jim Houser – “The Homebody” @ Subliminal Projects

AM stopped by Subliminal Projects last Saturday night to check out the new body of work from Jim Houser. “The Homebody” (previewed) was everything we expected – witty installations, a packed gallery, paintings full of patterns, symbols and codewords. What was unexpected though was an install that played an instrumental track – a soundtrack the artist created for the exhibition. Also, we felt that that clustering of paintings and art objects through out the space was interesting and nicely done. More pics after the jump…

Jeff Koons Installation @ Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital09

Jeff Koons and RxArt has teamed up to make the hospital a less intimidating space for young patients, hopefully helping to soothe fears and brighten moods. The world-renowned pop artist has transformed the usually sterile CT scan room with his familiar icons – including the Balloon Dog, Hanging Heart, and Monkeys. Known for being one of the most well-paid artists today, Koons generously provided the work with no artist fee. In addition, Kiehl’s also provided support for the project. Kudos to RxArt, Kiehl’s and Jeff […]
