Installations / Previews: David Choong Lee – “Organic Updates” @ 111 Minna

FAILE x New York City Ballet – “Faile Tower” @ Lincoln Center

It’s has been a long road leading up to this day for the FAILE camp, with Friday’s opening of Les Ballets De Faile. As we mentioned previously this week, the New York City Ballet came out swinging when they chose the the two to lead their first ever artist collaboration. Over the last 6 months, the Patricks and their band of loyal soldiers have created literally thousands of individually stacked ‘wooden block’ piece of artwork, inspired by both their own iconic imagery as well as the archives of the New York City […]

Openings: Andrew Schoultz – “Fall Out” @ Mark Moore Gallery

Just this Saturday night, the Mark Moore Gallery in Culver City hosted the newest solo show from Andrew Schoultz entitled Fall Out. As we have come to expect form the San Francisco-based painter, the showspace was transformed with a series of installations. Taking it a step further, these sculptural elements seem to interact closely with the Mission School stalwart’s imagery – like the cannon seemingly spewing gold onto his recent riffs on the American flag. Also present were some some familiar motifs including brick walls, kinetic patterns, illuminati […]

Brooklyn certainly seems to be getting their fair share of high-profile art projects recently.

Openings: “Color or Colour” @ Charles Bank Gallery

This past month, we brought you the preview of Color or Colour at Charles Bank Gallery in NYC. This well composed group exhibition included the works of London based Ben Eine among others. Eine is best  known for his large-scale outdoor typography inspired works with a color theory combination that have Pantone designers batting their eyelashes. Traveling relentlessly over the past couple years, Eine settled into New York City, just long enough to bring the house with his other artists in the show, most notably Lee Baker. […]

Showing: Know Hope – “The Weight” @ Known Gallery

Last week, the Known Gallery in Los Angeles welcomed the Israel-based Know Hope in to display new works as well as create an installation for their showspace. Entitled The Weight, the new paintings and sculptural compositions touched on the subject of the burdens we have and how we manage them. Along with glimpses of his spindly characters, the poetic musings seen in his street work also made the trip over on minimalistic pieces on the side of the gallery. Take a look in the photos below… Discuss Know Hope here.
