Preview/Installation: Date Farmers – “Smother Your Mother” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

The Coachella Valley collective Date Farmers (aka: Armando Lerma and Carlos Ramirez) are about to open up a new solo at Jonathan Levine Gallery. “Smother Your Mother” is truly as it sounds – we were overwhelmed by the colors, mediums and works that were created when we stop by the gallery to check out their installation progress. Really rolling up their sleeves, Armando and Carlos were focused on creating an environment that grabs at the viewers, from Yoda, Prison Shanks, and their trademark symbols on found material, […]

Installations – TrustoCorp Rebranding in NYC

As we previewed last week, upstart street art conglomerate TrustoCorp (featured) delivered the goods this past weekend in New York City. Combining quality design, public awareness and some good old fashioned mischief, the anonymous board of directors of the Rebranding division of TrustoCorp Intl. went all out in their latest public hijacking. If you’re in the greater New York area, keep an open eye out next time you’re shopping, if you’re lucky you’ll stumble across a TrustoCorp product. If you’re even luckier, you’ll be able […]

Showing: Mark Schoening – “Cloudcookooland” @ Blythe Projects

Los Angeles gallery, Blythe Projects, currently holding it’s inaugural Culver City show, featured an artist that drew AM’s attention, whose work we’ve actually been enjoying for the last year or so. “Cloudcookooland” is the first solo show in LA for Mark Schoening (featured on this month’s cover of American Contemporary Art magazine) since he moved to the city from New York last year. Schoening’s explosive work captures frozen moments in time, and this new show is inspired & informed by his recent relocation. He describes […]

Teaser: TrustoCorp installation

This weekend, TrustoCorp (covered) will be installing roughly one hundred subversively branded products onto the shelves and in the aisles of bodegas, delis, and Kmarts throughout NYC. Slyly slipped in with existing stock, these modified consumer products should be confusing customers citywide very soon.  More info to come.

Openings: sPy – “Urbana” @ SC Gallery – Bilbao, Spain

Urban interventionist sPy opened his debut solo show last week in his home country of Spain. Entitled “Urbana”, the show features a collection of photographs chronicling the pranksters recent works in Europe and New York City. Dubbed the “Spanish Banksy” by the media, sPy’s work focuses on alterations of the urban landscape, a rarity in that he refrains from using the traditional means and methods of graffiti/street art ie: stencils, wheatpastes or aerosol. Simultaneously whimsical and subversive, sPy’s situational art seems to be pushing the […]
