Openings: Harif Guzman @ SOHO Arts Club

These days, New York’s SOHO is primarily know for its high fashion, high society and high dollar retailers. Comfortably nestled among the boutiques, however, is a sprawling 4,000 square foot, second story loft called The SOHO Arts Club.  The space—and its founder, acclaimed contemporary artist Harif Guzman—quietly provide much needed refuge to many local and traveling artists. Guzman spent many of his early years wandering the same New York City streets, when the neighborhood wasn’t nearly as polished and was certainly less en vogue than […]

Recap: Sam Falls @ Eva Presenhuber (M Building – Miami)

As we gear up for the coming festivities of Art Basel Miami 2014, let’s look back at one of the impressive exhibitions held at the M Building by Galerie Eva Presenhuber during last year’s week of art madness. Artist Sam Falls had an excellent solo exhibition in which he showcased his multifaceted talents, ranging from his rope dye paintings and sculptures to his large scale lattice works that spanned the entire length of the M Building’s double height ceilings. It was an awesome display of […]

Openings: Faile – “Works on Wood” @ Allouche Gallery

Duality is generally viewed as good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, love and hate and the relationship they have with the other, and that is just one of the many constants we all love about the work of Faile. Provocative imagery paired with romanticized hardship, “No Expectations”,  “With Love and Kisses, Nothing lasts Forever”, and “Fast Love” just a few of the dozens of inspiring quotes found within their latest stacked fragmented cubed collage. Even their signature “1986” referring to that moment of the challenger disaster, reminding the viewer that some moments you quite simply […]

Baby Tattoville ’14: “Through The Looking Glass” @ Riverside Art Museum

Every year the city of Riverside, California plays host to Baby Tattooville, it is one of the highlights for the town and an unmistakable part of the personality of the event. The separation from Los Angeles and its art scene is part of what make the event so unique. The attendees are taken out of their environment and plunged into a Baby Tattoo world, populated by lowbrow artists, their creations and the people who love them. Each year, the Riverside Art Museum puts on an […]

Openings: Dallas Art Fair 2014

In the past few years, Dallas has been a hotbed of great art activity and related events. With the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth hosting KAWS & Barry McGee (here & here), the Dallas Contemporary exhibitions of DZINE & Faile (here & here), and MTV holding its annual star-studded RE:DEFINE auction (here) in the city, it’s not surprising to see the action shift to this key region.

By now, you’ve all heard the monumental buzz that this Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition I Who Have Arrived In Heaven has created with lines that exponentially grew from 30-45 mins to 4-6 hours in the course of less than a month. Mind you, art lovers endured near freezing NYC weather to take in the one minute zen experience of being one on one with Kusama’s Souls of Millions of Light Years Away (experienced here) infinity room installation.
