Showing: Do Ho Suh @ Museum Voorlinden

Museum Voorlinden recently opened Do Ho Suh’s first solo institutional show in the Netherlands, an expansive body on work anchored with a series of the mesh architectural installations that the Korean artist is known for.

Showing: KAWS – “ALONE AGAIN” @ Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit

A couple weekends ago, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (with support from Library Street Collective) opened a new show from art superstar KAWS. Entitled ALONE AGAIN, the exhibition features five large scale companion sculptures and three paintings displayed on a special mural painted by the Brooklyn-based artist. Utilizing his signature bold colors and abstracted pop imagery, the paintings really stand out against the 62-foot black and white snoopy-esque backdrop. This wall also contrasts nicely with the dark FINAL DAYS, SMALL LIE, ALONG THE WAY, BETTER KNOWING, and AT THIS TIME […]

The editions on offer are Obsession & Valar Morghulis, the first filled with more recently alive characters from the popular show and the second with different characters that did not survive as long, with the blue eyes seen on people who have turned into wights. The compositions mirror some of the Los Angeles-based […]

As part of the first edition, an undisclosed number of […]
