Video: Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade

Our friends over at Babelgum have put together a nice video about the “Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade” show that we covered last week at Lazarides. Bast and the Patricks were both interviewed about the creative process behind the show among other things.  Also, there’s some nice footage of the immersive installation and artwork that transformed the gallery into a neon video arcade. Discuss this show here. Discuss Faile here. Discuss Bast here.

Openings: The Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade at Lazarides – Greek Street

London art fans turned out this Thursday night to witness the most simultaneously fun and original show we’ve witnessed since, well, probably ever! The “Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade” is in town and after a week of installation time, is now officially open for business! Faile (aka: the Patricks) and Bast transformed the ground floor into a fully functioning video game arcade, with old school cabinets – some of which we recognized from our misspent youth – being given the paste-up treatment. Read on for more details and pictures […]

Openings: Ryan McGinness – “Studio Franchise @ Cultural Center of Casa Encendida (Madrid)

Last week, Ryan McGinness (featured) had an opening in Madrid’s Casa Encendida. The show “Studio Franchise” was not only the NYC artist’s classic works, but also a glimpse into his studio. Ryan replicated his studio in a giant installation to give art goers an idea of how he came to create some of his gems. We can atteste it looked very similar to his actual studio when we visited it for his 50 Parties auction (here). We also saw Banksy and Audrey Kawasaki give their […]

Installation / Preview: The Faile & Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade @ Lazarides

Lazarides seems to be kicking off 2010 in style with not one, but two shows featuring Faile (see our recent studio visit here) opening in London this week. We gave you some news on the shows a little while back, and we’ve been counting the days in the run up to this week. Greek Street – the old location of the gallery, and now commonly known as the Lazarides shop – will be hosting ‘”The Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade”, where Faile are teaming up […]

Openings: Tomokazu Matsuyama – “In Case You’re Lost” @ Frey Norris

On Thursday night, Tomokazu “Matsu” Matsuyama (interviewed) opened his latest solo show, “In Case You’re Lost”, at San Francisco’s Frey Norris. The vibrant collection of paintings, sculptures, and installations, consisting of what we affectionately call the “2.0” era of Matsu’s exciting career, were welcomed by the enthusiastic bay area crowd. As hinted in our studio visit/preview, these new works boldly elevate Matsu’s already keen eye for colors, geometrics, and abstract concepts/characters to a new level. We also enjoyed the various mediums and sizes of the […]

Preview: Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening & Day Sales

Openings: Damien Hirst – “End of an Era” @ Gagosian Gallery (Madison Avenue)

This past Saturday night, AM had the chance to tag along with British contemporary icon Damien Hirst at his opening at the Gagosian Gallery (Madison Ave). As stated in our preview, the show titled “End of an Era” was exactly that – an end to a highly notable period of Damien’s infamously publicized career where he made headlines with awe-inspiring and highly controversial achievements in the art world. This show contained the last of many prime examples of the British Bad Boy’s most renowned and infamous works – important iconic achievements […]

Video: David Ellis “Musical Trash” Installation

David Ellis must be one of the most versatile artists out there with his multifaceted approach to art. You may remember his work as a street artist in the impressive “graffiti-animation” video he did with Blu at the Fame Festival last year. Or perhaps you enjoyed his gallery work for New Image Art last summer? What stands out most for us recently though was the the huge trash sound installation we experienced that he created for the Anonymous Gallery booth at the SCOPE art fair […]

Bumblebee Installation @ Thinkspace

If you remember, AM last hung out with Bumblebee last year, as he placed one of his signature phonebooth installations on the streets of LA. Well, he’s taken it a step further with this pretty cool installation in the front alcove of Thinkspace for the “A Cry For Help” show (covered). Take a look at some more additional photos after the jump…
