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 […]

Showing: Delta – “Subduction Zones” @ Muziekgebouw Concert Hall (Amsterdam)

It looks like Boris Tellegen aka Delta has decided to go big since we last saw his work at the Elms Lester show in 2009. These new large-scale floating sculptural works from the Dutch artist are currently on display at Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw Concert Hall and are collectively entitled Subduction Zones, placed to welcome the World Minimal Music Festival.

David Lynch – “New Painting and Sculpture” @ William Griffin Gallery

David Lynch, best known as a filmmaker and director of such critically acclaimed films as Eraserhead, Mulholland Drive, and Blue Velvet, is also an accomplished visual artist in the mediums of painting and sculpture.  In this exhibition, Lynch’s second show with William Griffin Gallery, he continues his unique vision of the narrative of the American psyche.  The eccentric and slightly bizarre wall pieces include works on cardboard with thickly applied paint and the occasional light bulb, all wrapped around gold frames.  The sculptures resemble fully-functioning […]

Showing: Robert Longo – “God Machines” @ Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac

Robert Longo is currently showing at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris, and we are completely in awe of his the size, detail, and complexity of these new drawings. The centerpiece of this exhibition, entitled God Machines, is the installation of three large pieces featuring some of holiest places for the world’s largest monotheistic religions – Mecca in Saudi Arabia, St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Also on display will be other studies and works of some of his favorite subjects […]

Showing: Miss Van – “Twinkles” @ Magda Danysz (Paris)

Miss Van, one of the feminine figureheads of street art, recently returned to her native France for her first solo showing there in three years.  The exhibition, entitled Twinkles, at the Parisian branch of Magda Danysz featured paintings and drawings of her signature enticing “poupes” in various states of undress and costume wearing – with increasingly darker overtones. The collection of work is certainly worth a look if you are in Paris, although many of the paintings have been seen already in a similarly named […]

Showing: Skewville – ‘Slow Your Roll’ @ High Roller Society

Slow Your Roll, the first UK solo show by Brooklyn art duo Skewville, launched last Friday at High Roller Society. AM took advantage of the East London gallery’s new Sunday opening hours to visit over the weekend in the calm of a non-preview atmosphere. On the way, we spotted one of Skewville’s recent outdoor pieces, featuring the painted and foam-stamped word “BEEF” aptly done on the shopfront shutter of a local butcher. Plenty of stamps were also in evidence along the Regent’s Canal towpath, at […]

Openings: “Too Fast To Live, Too Young To Die” @ Subliminal Projects

When AM recently visited Shepard Fairey at his studio in Los Angeles, he also took us on a private tour of Subliminal Project’s latest exhibition Too Fast To Live, Too Young to Die. The group show curated by Katherine B. Cone and Jon Cournoyer is a selection of photography, art and ephemera from the California punk and hardcore scene emphasizing the explosive period of the late 70’s to early 80’s. Artists included Raymond Pettibon, Shepard Fairey, Glen E. Friedman, Jenny Lens, Dave Markey, Jordan Schwartz […]

Showing: Camille Rose Garcia – “Snow White and the Black Lagoon” @ Michael Kohn Gallery

Camille Rose Garcia took aim at another fairytale a couple weekends ago at Michael Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles with a new body of work based on Snow White, but instead of the seven dwarfs, she brought the whole story into the black lagoon. Like her Alice in Wonderland themed show last year, Camille blended imagery that was consistent in both her repertoire and the well-known tale like apples, poisons, and strange creatures culminating in a fantastic series of new paintings and drawings. More photos […]

Showing: Zevs – “Liquidated Version” @ De Buck Gallery

We haven’t updated you on the whereabouts and works of Zevs in a while ever since his show and arrest in Hong Kong. It looks like the French street artist is currently showing at De Buck in New York with a new body of work entitled Liquidated Version. Continuing his assault on corporate identities and what they represent, the show features his signature dripping brand logos as well as other mix-media works. More photos after the jump…
