Video: Art Forum Berlin (2009)

Here is a a quick walk-through by Vernissage TV of Berlin’s big art fair – Art Forum – that ended last weekend. We already bought you a taste of Futura (covered) and Herakut’s (covered) participation in this week of art festivities for the Germans, which only makes us look forward to this year’s Art Basel in Miami even more…

Showing: Herakut @ Berliner Liste Art Fair

Looks like there’s some new work from Herakut (interviewed) currently showing at this years’ Berliner Liste art fair.  Established six years ago, the fair has grown into the second largest in Berlin (behind the Art Forum) and has become known for its support of fresh young contemporary artists. German collaborative duo Herakut certainly fit the bill coming off successful shows in the UK and in NY.  Some more images as well as a video…  After the jump.

Video/Preview: Barry McGee @ Biennale de Lyon

This year’s Biennale de Lyon will be opening soon with the theme of “The Spectacle of Everyday.” Curated by SF based Hou Hanru, it’s not surprising that this year Barry McGee will be participating in the annual art event in Lyon, the second largest metropolitan area (behind Paris) in the heart of France (Sept 16th – Jan 3rd). Take a look at glimpses of McGee hard at work creating one of the fantastic installations he is famous for in the video above. Discuss Barry McGee […]

Video: Vernissage – Basel Week Switzerland

Another great video walkthrough by Vernissage TV from Art Basel Switzerland.  If you can get past the videographer’s apparent shoe fetish, you will be able to get a good idea of the atmosphere as well as see some glimpses of the artwork.  For more photos check out our previous post. Discuss Art Basel Switzerland here.

Art Basel Vernissage – Basel Week Switzerland

Art Basel Switzerland is hands-down the Mecca of the art world. Once a year, the industry’s elite galleries converge in Europe to celebrate and exchange some of the most coveted pieces by the world’s top art stars. This year of course wasn’t much different, although many collectors came to shop for their dream pieces of art and many came in search of bargains. It seems that galleries were recession conscious as they priced their inventory at prices which would entice even the most thrifty art fans. […]

Video: Interview – Pharrell Williams / Murakami / The Simple Things – Basel Week Switzerland

Vernissage TV caught up with Pharrell Williams and interviewed him about the collaboration piece he did with Takashi Murakami and Jacob the Jeweler at Art Basel (Switzerland). Gems of this interview include where he says “bling, I do not wear,” how he was reluctant to call himself an artist, and his love for cupcakes (really, are they THAT good?).  Not sure we would have chosen the same “…simple things” he did, but we loved the sculpture. Discuss Murakami here.

Yoshitomo Nara x YNG Collaboration – Basel Week Switzerland

Just as he did for his museum show at the BALTIC, LA show last year, and show in NY this year, Yoshitomo Nara teams up with YNG to present another stunning installation at this year’s Art Basel (Switzerland) in what appears to be joint venture between Blum & Poe, Marianne Boesky Gallery, and Tomio Koyama Gallery.  The distinctively Nara structure was seen at Art Unlimited, the exhibition for projects that transcend the classical art, including video projections, large-scale installations, massive sculptures and live performances.  More […]
