Recap: José Parlá – “Echo of Impressions” @ Ben Brown Fine Arts (London)

José Parlá returned to London recently for his third UK solo show entitled Echo of Impressions (previewed). The Brooklyn-based artist’s practice continues to be primarily concerned with the documentation of the urban landscape but the show’s title references a particular emphasis at this time on the sights, sounds, noises, smells and tastes of the city as a marker for the lives which are experienced within that space. While these are essential components of how we experience the built environment at any given point in time, […]

Showing: Felipe Pantone – “W3-DIMENSIONAL Park” @ Siam Center

Last week in Bangkok, Felipe Pantone unveiled an immersive installation at the Siam Center entitled W3-DIMENSIONAL Park. For his first showing in Thailand, the Argentinian-Spanish artist created a sculptural representation of his special form of glitch effects and optical art that transports viewers into the digital world. The title of the piece references the three dimensional aspect of the World Wide Web (divs, tables, and iframes) and includes four original pieces that are part of some recent projects. On view through 2019, the installation is a testament to the graffiti […]

Releases: Pejac – “Love Letter” Edition

Available for 24 hours only, between December 5th 5pm and December 6th 5pm (CET), Love Letter is the latest time-limited release from Pejac.

The edition will […]

Hajime Sorayama x Dior – “Pre-Fall 2019 Menswear Show”

Thursday night in Tokyo, Hajime Sorayama took his signature fembots to the next level with a 39-foot-tall sculpture that took center stage for Dior’s pre-fall 2019 menswear show, towering over the laser-lit catwalk. Creative director Kim Jones’ second collection for the European luxury goods company follows in the artistic footsteps of his debut effort where he tapped KAWS to create a 32-foot-tall statue made of flowers for the Spring/Summer 2019 campaign. No less stunning, Sorayama’s contribution was a 20,000 pound representation of the “idealized female figure in robotic form, a […]
