Openings: Transfer (Brazil)

Last weekend, the traveling museum exhibition “TRANSFER” opened it’s doors at the new Brazilian Cultural Pavilion. In 2008, the first edition of the event was held at Santander Cultural in Porto Alegre, Brazil’s largest city in its southern region. This year, the show featuring “contemporary visual art, street art, skateboarding, independent music, as well as underground comics and fanzine art from the last two decades” is set in the cradle of Brazilian street art, Sao Paulo, hoping to duplicate or exceed the 80,000 visitors that […]

Update: Yoshitomo Nara – New York Upper East Side Statues & Asia Society Retrospective

Some exciting news for Yoshitomo Nara fans out there yesterday as the NY Times announced that on August 9th, a pair of 12-foot-high fiberglass Nara dogs will be placed on the Upper East Side (one across from the entrance to the Asia Society at 725 Park Avenue, at 70th Street, and the other at 67th Street and Park Avenue just in front of the Park Avenue Armory) The Asia Society will be hosting a major retrospective with the famous Japanese pop artist entitled “Yoshitomo Nara: […]

PortugalArte ’10: Faile (Part 1)

A “Bunny Boy” sculpture? Hell yes please! We can’t wait to see what Faile (featured) has up their sleeves for their fans in Portugal. As we hinted before in March, the Brooklyn street duo are in town for the PortugalArte ’10, Portugal’s new month-long biannual art exhibition and will be working on “the Cathedral Project, a giant sculptural installation in the heart of the city of Lisbon.” Not sure what to expect exactly from Faile this time around, but expect something fresh from the Patricks […]

Openings: StolenSpace Summer Group Show

AM got to the opening of StolenSpace’s annual Summer Group Show last week to find a line of people queuing out of the door! A packed house came out to see what we found to be a very strong grouping of work from an interesting mix of artists, some old StolenSpace favorites, but a lot fresh names – some new to the gallery, and some new to the London scene. Chloe Early is one of our favorite painters from the StolenSpace roster, and her new […]

Basel Week Switzerland ’10: Volta6

The last fair we attended while in Switzerland was Volta6, and although it was way across town from Art Basel (covered, part 1 and 2) and Scope (covered), in a somewhat industrial part of the city, we were glad we made the trek. Unlike VoltaNY (covered), Volta6 was not focused on single-artist booths, so the smaller fair offered visitors a large range of interesting emerging artists.

Preview: “Summer Group Show” @ StolenSpace Gallery

StolenSpace Gallery in London is hosting their annual summer group show tonight. As usual, the roster features some stalwarts from their stable of artists as well as mixing in some new talent. One of the pieces we look forward to checking out ourselves is “Rocketeers” from Chloe Early (interviewed). If this incredible painting is any indication, we are in for a treat when her next solo opens in October at the Corey Helford Gallery. More selected preview images from the group show which also includes […]

Openings: “Not Quite Open for Business” @ The Hole

Earlier last week we gave you a sneak preview of the gallery space that is likely to contend as the heir apparent to the famed Deitch Projects. On Saturday night “The Hole” officially opened its doors for it’s anticipated inaugural show “Not Quite Open for Business”. As the titled indicated the launch had a flair all it’s own with many fresh but “not quite finished” creations that matched the crispy new space. Launching in the heart of Soho between Prince and Spring, it seemed as though many of […]

Art Basel Switzerland 2010 – Part 1

There are many art fairs each year around the world, but there is one that draws the biggest galleries, the most eye-popping works of art and the wealthiest collectors, and that of course is Art Basel in Basel, Switzerland. This year, for the first time, AM was there for the big show, and we couldn’t have been more impressed. And it seemed that the top-end collectors were also impressed, as the show was packed and buzzing from preview to closing, with many galleries reporting excellent […]

Openings: Todd Schorr – “Designed for Extinction” @ Otis College of Art & Design

On Saturday night, the greater Los Angeles area was very fortunate to host another show from Todd Schorr (featured) after his solo last year at Merry Karnowsky. After the legendary artist took a five year hiatus from exhibiting in the area, here is a second show, all in the span of one year. The  exhibition at the Otis College of Art and Design is a ten-year retrospective looking back at Todd’s illustrious career since his move to Los Angeles, and as such, featured many paintings, […]
