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 […]

Basel Week Miami ’18 / Previews: Juxtapoz Clubhouse

Art Basel Week Miami is just around the corner, and once again Juxtapoz Magazine is coming to Miami with another edition of their Juxtapoz Clubhouse concept, this time taking over a whole section in downtown Miami. Running sort of an art fair of their own, or an art district if you wish, this year’s event was again organized in collaboration with Mana Contemporary, and will include seven curated storefronts, multiple art installations, as well as a full Mexico City group show and pop-up installation show. Celebrating the impressive […]

Showing: “Mickey: The True Original” Exhibition (New York)

As we mentioned a couple days ago, the Mickey: The True Original Exhibition has opened in New York, celebrating the 90th birthday of one of the most iconic cartoon characters in history. The show is filled with photo-ops, including an amazing piece (seen above) from Daniel Arsham inspired by Thru the Mirror, a Mickey Mouse cartoon short film from 1936 and a Mickey Mouse-themed Cosmic Cavern from Kenny Scharf. The immersive 16,000 square-foot exhibition will be on view through February 10th so add it to your art-going itinerary now. […]

Previews: Tauba Auerbach – “A Broken Stream” @ Paula Cooper Gallery

Tonight at Paula Cooper Gallery in New York, Tauba Auerbach will be returning to open a show entitled Broken Stream featuring video, sculpture, drawing and painting. Despite the diverse range of techniques and mark-making, the New York-based artist’s work is always rooted in the way mathematics and physics, and science intersect with art. Anchoring the new exhibition are two beautiful installations centering on her work with glass, one with rods mirroring the helices and waves seen in nature and one seen through freestanding lenses flanking either side. Rounding out the […]

Showing: Barry McGee – “SB Mid Summer Intensive” @ MCA Santa Barbara

A couple weeks ago, we had the opportunity to attend an artist talk from Barry McGee at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara where his solo is currently on view through this weekend. SB Mid Summer Intensive features an expansive selection of paintings, photographs, drawings, and sculptural objects from the renowned San Francisco-based artist. Those familiar with McGee’s work will know his attention to detail in the installation of his exhibitions is an artform in and of itself. This showing continues in that vein with clusters of […]

Showing: Barry McGee – “Little Savage” @ Eighteen

Back in Danish capital after two years when he last exhibited his work alongside Todd James (covered), Barry Mcgee recently opened his debut solo with Eighteen gallery. Showing for the first time in this new Copenhagen space, the legendary artist constructed an immersive installation that took over the entire gallery, floor to ceiling, entrance door to emergency exit. With artworks being displayed everywhere from hidden corners above doorways to the backs of pedestals scattered through the place, the space was temporarily transformed into L. Fong Healing Arts Center. Showcasing […]

Showing: Art Safiental 2018

After a successful debut in 2016, Art Safiental 2018 is underway – a biennale that sees artists create installations and projects throughout the Safien Valley in Switzerland. On view through October 17th, the artwork “questions, explores and revises the historical term Land Art” based on this year’s theme (HORIZONTAL – VERTICAL). Accompanied by a hiking map, a visit by adventurous art lovers promises stunning views and an experience like no other that will bring to mind a dialogue with landscape and nature. This year’s curator (Johannes […]

Showing: Lucy Sparrow – “Sparrow Mart” @ The Standard, DTLA

The Standard hotel in Downtown LA is currently hosting a big-scale West Coast debut of British artist Lucy Sparrow. As her fifth fully-felted art installation, Sparrow Mart opened doors on August 1st and will stay open for business until the end of the month. We say “open for business” because of the fact that this art installation is a fully functional supermarket, offering a wide range of everyday supplies entirely made from felt and fabric. From bubblegum, fruit and veggies, to different packaging of favorite snacks, […]

Showing: Yayoi Kusama – “With All My Love For The Tulips, I Pray Forever (2011)” @ Marciano Art Foundation

For Angeleno’s who missed Yayoi Kusuma’s turn at The Broad (covered) last year, here is your second chance. With All My Love For The Tulips, I Pray Forever (2011) features the Japanese artist’s penchant for polka dots in an immersive installation with large fiberglass-reinforced plastic tulips surrounded by floor-to-ceiling red dots. Ranging from over 7 to almost 10 feet tall, the three oversized flowers reinforces the illusion that the viewer has shrunk down to miniature size, an effect amplified by the repeating dots.
