Openings: 10 Years of Fecal Face @ The Luggage Store

Last Friday, San Francisco celebrated an amazing ten year run for Fecal Face, source of all art in the Bay Area. The ten year anniversary show held at The Luggage Store included many of the artists that have been featured on their website of which AM’s readers are sure to be familiar with as well. Take a look at all the great pieces in the show after the jump (including this Mars-1 piece seen above)…

Barry McGee Mural on Houston & Bowery Completed

As quickly as it started just after midnight of Monday morning, it ended. Barry McGee (aka Twist) and his friend/assistant Josh Lazcano (aka Amaze) worked throughout the night into the wee hours of the morning (definitely outlasting AM into the am…) to complete an amazing mural that will hopefully last long enough for the people of New York to enjoy. We went back to the spot to enjoy the fruits of Barry & Josh’s Labor basking in daylight on the iconic corner of Houston & Bowery. […]

Streets: Barry McGee (New York)

It looks like Barry McGee has begin his assault on New York by throwing up huge tags all over the mural space at the Houston and Bowery location we first told you about last week. Initially, this looks pretty similar to the wall he worked on in San Diego for the Viva La Revolucion show but we will be monitoring the site for any additional progress. More pics after the jump…

Teaser: Barry McGee Mural (New York)

So, observant street art fans in New York must have noticed by now that Shepard Fairey’s much vandalized “These Parties Disgust Me” mural (done in conjunction with his “May Day” show at Deitch) has been covered with the scaffolding below rebuilt. Although there has been some speculation the preserved Os Gemeos mural underneath would once again re-emerge at the Houston and Bowery location, what AM has confirmed may be even more exciting…  The site will be a new canvas for another street legend soon – […]

Releases: Lithographic Stone Prints from Barry McGee & Todd James

It looks like V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, the host of Barry McGee & Todd James’ current exhibition is making some lithographic stone prints available of selected pieces from the show. So, if you liked the show and would like a piece of the action, take a look at some print images after the jump and get in contact with the gallery.

Openings: “Brush Strokes” @ V1 Gallery

Last week, Copenhagen’s V1 gallery opened the stunning new show “Brush Strokes,” featuring the works of Todd James (aka REAS) and Lydia Fong (aka Barry McGee). According to the V1 site, the title of the exhibition is a reference to the humorous NYC public-access TV show. McGee filled the gallery with several large scale installations — a text-heavy cluster of new style panels, another of only geometrics and another framed photos and paper pieces — as well as several smaller works, while James contributed a […]

Basel Week Switzerland ’10: Volta6

The last fair we attended while in Switzerland was Volta6, and although it was way across town from Art Basel (covered, part 1 and 2) and Scope (covered), in a somewhat industrial part of the city, we were glad we made the trek. Unlike VoltaNY (covered), Volta6 was not focused on single-artist booths, so the smaller fair offered visitors a large range of interesting emerging artists.

Openings: “Not Quite Open for Business” @ The Hole

Earlier last week we gave you a sneak preview of the gallery space that is likely to contend as the heir apparent to the famed Deitch Projects. On Saturday night “The Hole” officially opened its doors for it’s anticipated inaugural show “Not Quite Open for Business”. As the titled indicated the launch had a flair all it’s own with many fresh but “not quite finished” creations that matched the crispy new space. Launching in the heart of Soho between Prince and Spring, it seemed as though many of […]

Preview / Setup: “Not Quite Open for Business” @ The Hole

A few weeks ago, we updated you on the creation of “The Hole” gallery by two former directors of Deitch Projects (Kathy Grayson & Meghan Coleman) and that they were planning some sort of group exhibition with at least nine artists. A pretty ambitious plan for a gallery put together in the past two months to fill “the hole” left by Jeffrey Deitch right? Well, great projects tend to snowball and now this show now has over 20 key artists and the opening is in less […]

Streets / Video: Twist, Amaze, Resq, Stefan, Deej, CBT Crew in San Diego

So, that epic wall chock full of handstyles that we posted up last night was actually from San Diego where Barry McGee and the rest of the crew (Amaze, Resq, Stefan, Deej) were in town to prep for the big “Viva La Revolucion” exhibition opening next month at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. If you want to check some of this work out, you’d better hurry as apparently the San Diego residents aren’t as into art as some towns and have been raising […]
