Releases: Jeff Koons x Dom Pérignon Sculpture Package

You may remember our recent article detailing Jeff Koons’ latest exhibition at the Gagosian in New York and despaired at the the thought of ever owning something from him. Now, love him or hate him, fans of the contemporary art giant’s sculptural works have a (relatively speaking) more affordable chance to own an editioned version of his Balloon Venus, in the form of a packaged collaboration with Dom Pérignon (also see their previous work with Warhol and David Lynch). Although unclear if this will be readily available, the […]

Showing: Danh Vō – “Go Mo Ni Ma Da” @ The Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris

Currently on view at The Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris is a exhibition devoted to Danh Vō, an artist who was born in Vietnam and raised in Denmark. His work and the pieces in this show are highly political and explore liberal societies and the power games and rules that underlie them and the fragile nature of the nation-state idea. Centralized by values expressed through the material, economic, or symbolic, Vō’s practice illuminates the complexity of the relationship between peoples in the […]

Preview: Maya Lujan @ Carmichael Gallery

It has been awhile since Carmichael Gallery has hosted a artist exhibition and if you are wondering what the reason may be, it’s because they have moved locations to a venue that’s two miles up Washington Blvd from the previous Culver City one. For its inaugural show, the gallery will unveil a solo show by LA-based artist Maya Lujan. For her new series of paintings, the artist researched the history of the new gallery venue (discovered that it used to be a puppet theatre) and […]

Showing: Bäst – “SEAFOAM” @ Eric Firestone Gallery

Currently showing at the Eric Firestone Gallery in East Hampton through July 2nd is a new exhibition from Bäst. SEAFOAM features the NY-based street artist’s gritty paintings, mixed-media, and sculptural works, many of which use found materials from his home shores of Coney Island. The pieces for this solo feature his characteristic use of layering and collaging (with bits and pieces of advertisements and magazines) as well as display his re-occuring predilection for the use of many eyes in his portraiture. Take a look at more photos we took below, including […]

Openings: Mark Jenkins – ‘The Studio’ @ Galerie Patricia Dorfmann

Galerie Patricia Dorfmann recently opened Mark Jenkins’ (interviewed) first solo show in Paris, introducing his newest body of work titled The Studio. Ten years since this science graduate first started experimenting with packaging tape and discovering its potential as a sculpting material, he has recreated a studio with his life-like figures simulating different situations and periods of a creative process. Famous for his street installations which often expose social problems such as violence, insecurity, consumption, environmental concerns, depression, as well as inducing the feelings of amusement, intrigue, shock or […]

Jeff Koons – “New Paintings & Sculpture” @ Gagosian

AM recently had the pleasure of visiting Jeff Koons’ latest show at the Gagosian in New York. Known as one of the bell-weather blue chip artist of the contemporary art scene for the past few decades, Mr. Koons made his debut exhibition at the New York gallery space of the Gagosian after previously exhibiting at Larry’s Los Angeles and London outposts over the past decade. Entitled New Paintings & Sculpture, this fresh body of work exemplifies the appeal of Koons and his ability to draw […]

Basel Week Switzerland ’13: SCOPE

One of the satellite fairs during Basel Week Switzerland is the always quality SCOPE Art Fair.

Openings: KAWS – “GISWIL” @ More Gallery

A couple weeks ago, we gave you a taste of what to expect for the KAWS solo at More Gallery opening during Basel Week Switzerland. Now, we have gathered some more detailed photos of the two massive wood companion sculptures as well as some of the tondos that were exhibited at the same time. We know it’s a trek to get out to the show even if you are in Basel at the moment, so if you can’t make it out before the August 26th close, just take a […]

Upcoming: Thomas Doyle – “No Man’s Land” @ LeBasse Projects

Last we saw Thomas Doyle’s sculptural genius was during last year in Miami during Art Basel Week. Now AM and fans in Los Angeles will get to see a full body of work later this month (June 22) when his solo No Man’s Land opens at LeBasse Projects, the site of his show in 2001 (covered). The exhibition will feature works from his Proxy series, miniature dioramas and models invariably feature some natural disaster striking the quite life of suburbia. Discuss Thomas Doyle here.

Showing: Letha Wilson – Landmarks and Monuments @ Art in General

NYC nonprofit art space Art in General currently has an excellent exhibition by Letha Wilson, entitled Landmarks and Monuments. The show consists mostly of Wilson’s photo-based sculptures—many of which were created and installed specifically for the site. In the center of the gallery, a floor-to-ceiling photograph of a moonrise curves around one of the space’s support columns. On one side of the room, an image of a tree is pressed into the drywall with a two-by-four. And across, a Southwestern landscape is installed over a window, […]
