“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 […]

Roy Lichtenstein – “Landscapes in the Chinese Style” @ Gagosian Gallery (Hong Kong)

Our Hong Kong correspondent, Layla Kawashima, recently stopped by the Gagosian to take some photos of the Roy Lichtenstein exhibition before it closed. Landscapes in the Chinese Style consists of a collection of lesser known works from the famous pop artist that features his reinterpretation of traditional Chinese painting. He states: “I think (the Chinese landscapes) impress people with having somewhat the same kind of mystery (historical) Chinese paintings have, but in my mind it’s a sort of pseudo-contemplative or mechanical subtlety…I’m not seriously doing […]

James Jarvis @ The Standard (New York)

Interviews: MODE 2 – “Offerings” @ Lucas Carrieri Gallery

KRINK @ Loft in Space

Several weeks ago, Loft in Space in Hawaii hosted a show from Craig Costello with new site-specific paintings and sculptures.

Anthony Lister – “Bogan Paradise” @ Gallery A.S.

Prolific Aussie artist Anthony Lister (interviewed) recently put on a show with Gallery A.S. entitled Bogan Paradise. After plastering Los Angeles with his work in August, this new show in his home country is staged in a recently de-zoned sex shop in Sydney’s Chinatown and challenges conceptions of the Australian identity – those attributes perceived as both positive and negative. In particular, Lister explores Larrikinism, “the name given to the Australian folk tradition of irreverence, mockery of authority and disregard for rigid norms of propriety.” More photos via Slamxhype after the […]
