Many of the contributors such as Tristan Eaton, Eric White, Haze, Esao Andrews, Tara McPherson, Erik Foss, Andrew Bell, Stephen Bliss, Kevin Bourgeois, Filth, Kenzo Minami, Mint, Serf, Dr. Revolt and Tom Thewes were in attendance, signing and drawing for the droves of fans who came out to support their favorite artists. Fans were treated also to a mini pop-up exhibition as each artist’s work […]

Jessica Harrison – “Broken” @ Jealous Gallery

A show that closed just last weekend at the Jealous Gallery in London was a collection of sculptures that might not be for the faint of heart. Broken (previewed), from Jessica Harrison, is comprised of a series of classic delicate figurines common in the UK but with a gory twist.  For this particular line of work from the multi-talented artist, the dancing ladies don’t let a little disembowelment or unroofing of their brains get in the way of their fun, seemingly oblivious to the various mutilations […]

Showing: Haroshi – “Future Primitive” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Currently showing alongside Souther Salazar (covered) at Jonathan LeVine Gallery is Japanese phenom Haroshi. The show Future Primitive impressed us from the moment AM laid eyes on his incredible works. At first glance, his sculptural pieces seem like everyday objects like a hydrant, a forty of beer, or a moose head. But upon closer inspection, the colorful wooden sculptures had more than meets the eyes as each piece is comprised of layered skateboard wood, convenient as Haroshi is an avid skateboarder. Talk about using your artistic […]

Showing: Andy Warhol – “Colored Campbell’s Soup Cans” @ L & M Arts (NY)

Currently on exhibit at L & M Arts’ New York space is one of the most quintessential collections of Andy Warhol ever assembled together under one roof, namely a complete set of twelve Colored Campbell’s Soup Cans. Gathered from various private collections and institutions, the exhibition marks the first time the iconic series, a uniquely color complex spin off of Warhol’s original Tomato Soup design, has ever been shown together in it’s entirety. Created in 1965, the series exemplifies the signature Warholian multiple original production […]

Showing: Mike Shine – “Der Wilden Mann, Thus Sprach Flotsam; Metamorphosis 3” @ Copro Gallery

Saturday, May 7 from 2:00 to 8:00PM, Copro Gallery will host the closing party for Mike Shine’s latest show, Der Wilden Mann, Thus Sprach Flotsam; Metamorphosis 3. In addition to checking out the show, patrons will be able to view a screening of Mike Shine videos and collect a few of the freebies they will be giving out. Shine was able to transform the gallery into a futuristic circus that is interactive (carnival games) and explores the themes of the philosopher Frederich Neitzsche’s work on […]

Kate MccGwire – “Bound” @ All Visual Arts

We don’t often cover taxidermic art here on AM, but when we do, it’s usually pretty special (also see Polly Morgan and David Shrigley). London-based Kate MccGwire’s recent work is only vaguely related to taxidermy but does share a common thread with the use of feathers to create beautiful yet sometimes disturbing sculptures and installations. The just ended showing at All Visual Arts featured her latest undulating creation entitled Bound of which you can see more pics after the jump… Make sure you also check […]

A Walk Through the NY MoMA

Our friends over at the Sciolist recently visited the MoMA in New York. It looks like now might be a good time to stop by if you are in town as there are some iconic works from artist like Vincent van Gogh, Monet, Haring, Ruscha, and many more. Take a look at some more of the photos after the jump…

Showing: LUDO – “La Belle Vie” @ Starkart Gallery (Zurich)

Paris street artist, LUDO (interviewed), has just penned a new chapter in his young artistic opus with the opening of his first solo exhibition in Zurich. Instructed by the gallery to not attend his own opening, smartly so in the wake of the his extensive work in the Swiss streets (more on that to come) as police were on the prowl outside the gallery, La Belle Vie (previewed) proved the artist’s capacity to translate his vision to an indoor environment. Utilizing a wide range of […]

Openings: Adam Wallacavage – “Dreamhome Heartaches” @ Corey Helford

It looks like last month’s opening of Adam Wallacavage’s (interviewed) show at Corey Helford Gallery attracted many of the city’s artistic community. Obviously enamored by his chandeliers, lamps, and other adventurous lighting options, the audience packed into the Culver City show space to take in his and Henry Lewis‘ new body of work. Take a look at some of the pics after the jump. Today is also the last day of the show so stop by if you haven’t had the chance to yet.

Ed Ruscha – “Psycho Spaghetti Westerns” @ Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills

We previously posted a video of the Ed Ruscha exhibition currently on view at Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, but we felt this landmark show deserved much better than that on AM.  Here are actual still images of the paintings by the legendary Los Angeles artist.  Psycho Spaghetti Westerns contains Ruscha’s examination of the “effects of time on landscape” and is his first solo show in his hometown in twelve years.  It is up until April 9, so if you have a chance to see […]
