David Choe x Howard Stern

In the insanity and aftermath of news breaking that David Choe (featured) stands to make $100-200 million dollars on the upcoming Facebook IPO, all the major network shows were attempting to book him for an interview. His first choice as a longtime fan was of course to be interviewed by Howard Stern (which makes sense if you know David’s lifestyle and humor).  You can see a video clip as well as audio clips of the entire interview after the jump where no topic was left […]

Videos: El Mac Artist Statement – Vietnam

Last year, you may recall when we brought you photos of a mural from El Mac painted in Vietnam during a period of travel. We followed that up with an article featuring a creative process video for that mural, but the LA-based street muralist wasn’t interviewed as part of the footage at that point.  Now, comes an insightful video that fills in the gaps of his trip where Mac talks about his beginnings, the issues with local paint & cans, his signature “ripple” effect, graffiti specific […]

Videos: Andreas Gursky @ Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Denmark)

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, which despite its name is located in Denmark, is currently hosting 40 giant photographs and a number of smaller works created by the world-famous photographer Andreas Gursky. We last saw a large collection of his works back in 2010 in Los Angeles, and certainly recommend seeing in person this retrospective from the genius of large-format photography if you happen to be in the area. If not, take a look at the video above for a taste of what you are […]

Teaser: David Shrigley – “Brain Activity” @ Hayward Gallery

We are AM are pretty excited about the prospects of attending David Shrigley’s first major survey exhibition in the UK, entitled Brain Activity, opening this Wednesday at the Hayward Gallery in London. The last time we saw a large selection of pieces from the versatile British artist was at the 2010 Frieze Art Fair, where he was incidentally also drawing on people’s bodies in one of his infamous impromptu tattoo sessions, so the opportunity to peruse an even more substantial collection of his work will […]
