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.

Armory Week ’13: Gagosian – Andy Warhol: Self Portrait / Camouflage

Gagosian pulled out all the stops at this years’ Armory show. And by “all the stops” we mean a small handful of modest-sized works by Andy Warhol (at a combined value of around 20 million dollars) and one gigantic 33′ x 7′ camouflage piece produced by Warhol in the latter part of 1986. There has been quite a buzz about this superbooth, but it’s only fair to put this wallpaperfest into the proper perspective. It was definitely a power-house art cluster with auction busting works […]
