Showing: Do Ho Suh – “Home Within Home” @ Leeum Samsung Museum of Art

Currently showing at the Leeum Samsung Museum of Arts is native son Do Ho Suh’s Home Within Home. Bringing his signature sculptural works made from sheer fabric, the Korean artist explores the idea of his nomadic lifestyle lying in various major metropolitan areas of the world. With colorful and ethereal suspended structures greeting visitors when entering, the exhibition certainly makes an impression. We even saw some of the household items from last December’s Art Basel on display. More photos via Designboom after the jump…

Showing: “Dualities, Omissions, Loops, and Ruptures” @ Luis De Jesus Gallery

A few weekends back in Los Angeles, Luis De Jesus opened a group exhibition entitled Dualities, Omissions, Loops, and Ruptures, featuring local artists Chris Engman, Cody Trepte, Samantha Roth, and John Houck. The cleverly curated grouping brought together four artists as disparate in technique as they are unified in purpose, collectively weaving between photography, film, drawing, print, and sculpture in order to explore ideas of “constructed realities” and “emotional dualities” in their own individual ways. Check out some additional commentary and a selection of installation […]

Steve Gianakos – “New Paintings” @ Fredericks & Freiser

AM recently visited an exhibition before it closed at Fredericks & Freiser in New York featuring new work from Steve Gianakos. Since the 70s, the painter has been known to mix vulgarity with the iconic styles of 1950s children’s books leading to a smirk, shaking of the head, or reddening of the cheeks when viewed by his audiences. This newest show, his fifth with the gallery, is no different with paintings featuring his child characters dealing with sexuality, decapitations, drugs, and worse. More NSFW photos […]

Showing: ROA – “Fragments” @ The Scarlett Gallery

As you saw from our preview and look at his street work in Stockholm, ROA was recently hosted by the Scarlett Gallery in Sweden in a two-part event. First up is Fragments, where the Belgium-based street muralist put on a showing where the inside space was converted into a makeshift laboratory and workshop where his imagery was painted on bottles, tool boxes, pinned onto a bulletin, and on found objects. More photos of the show by Anthony Hill after the jump…

POW WOW ’12: Suitman

For this year’s POW WOW, we see the return of performance artist, Young Kim aka Suitman. The versatile man of many talents continued expanding his longstanding  suit-photography series which he also explored during last year’s Pow Wow. With all the portraits created from the attendees from the opening night a year ago, Suitman pasted up and hand-finished two site specific outdoor murals to be displayed in the neighborhood of Kaka’ako thus giving a “distinguished” face to the event’s name. Check out more after the jump.

Clare Rojas – “Piecemeal” @ Gallery Paule Anglim

The Gallery Paule Anglim in San Francisco recently had the pleasure of hosting a series of new works from Clare Rojas. For this showing entitled Piecemeal, it was apparent that the Bay Area – based artist was continuing to explore abstraction in her oeuvre of which she mixed in with paintings featuring her more obviously folk-art inspired signature look. Although the exhibition has already closed, you can enjoy the new body of work vicariously through the photos after the jump…

“Fresh Kills” @ Anonymous Gallery (Mexico)

The Anonymous Gallery kicked off their Mexico City location with a bang with a recently closed group show – Fresh Kills. The title of the showing refers to the 2,200 acres in New York known as Fresh Kills Landfill that will be converted to a huge public park over the course of the next 30 years. The transformation of what was formerly the world’s largest landfill into something beautiful is a metaphor for the type of work the artists in this show do – taking […]

World Tour – Completing the Gagosian Gallery x Damien Hirst Spot Challenge

227 hours – That’s how long it took for AM to travel the globe and complete the Spot Challenge presented by Damien Hirst x Gagosian Gallery. As we broke the news about this unique promotion, we thought, “why don’t we take Damien up on his challenge instead of just reporting on it?” Some of us have long been fans of Mr. Hirst’s spot paintings, so pair that with the opportunity to visit eight awesome cities (Geneva, Paris, London, Rome, Athens, New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong) and […]

Keith Haring @ Pace Prints

Over the weekend, an exhibition of prints and small scale multiples by Keith Haring closed in New York at Pace Prints. Haring believed in and was fascinated by the process of printmaking and in the course of his career produced over 60 limited editions on paper using a variety of methods including lithograph, silk-screen, etching, embossing and aquatint. The prolific artist also created editions in aluminum, wood, concrete and terracotta, several of which were also on view. The exhibition also included a special Pop Shop installation, […]

Herakut @ HALLENKUNST

After finishing their project in Los Angeles painting segments of the Berlin Wall (covered), Herakut headed over to their home country to exhibit some of their painting skills in a pop-up show. HALLENKUNST was held in Chemnitz, Germany and seeks to highlight the growing urban art movement and public art scene. Hera & Akut were some of the artists that were given an area to create a site-specific installation and works. More photos from the collaborative duo as well as a video after the jump…
