Openings: Yoskay Yamamoto – “Tell Me A Story” @ LeBasse Projects

Opening in the project room at LeBasse Projects along with Yoshitaka Amano’s show was an installation from Yoskay Yamamoto (interviewed). Entitled “Tell Me A Story”, the hanging sculptures were reminiscent of the piece from his solo show last May. If you don’t have time to stop by personally to check it out like Yoskay is doing in the photo above, take a look at some photos after the jump…

Banksy – “Exit Through the Gift Shop” Lambeth Palace Special Screening

After screening at the Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals, Banksy’s “Exit Through the Gift Shop” documentary premiered in the UK at a some special screenings early this week in a tunnel underneath the Waterloo train station dubbed “Lambeth Palace.” Of course, anything the famous street artist puts on is not a simple affair.  The evening came complete with multiple installations like a red carpet painted on the street, his “Paranoid Pictures” logo, the animatronics from his “Village Store and Charcoal Grill” pop up show, as […]

Preview: The 2010 Whitney Biennial

Art critic Charlie Finch just posted on artnet one of the first reviews of the 2010 Whitney Biennial, which officially opens tomorrow. As each Biennial is an attempt to take the pulse of contemporary art in America, it is usually a challenging show, spanning all mediums, which typically offers at least something of interest for any art lover. However, it seems that Finch thinks a little more highly of this Biennial, ending his review “This is not only the greatest of Whitney Biennials, it is […]

Installation / Preview: The Faile & Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade @ Lazarides

Lazarides seems to be kicking off 2010 in style with not one, but two shows featuring Faile (see our recent studio visit here) opening in London this week. We gave you some news on the shows a little while back, and we’ve been counting the days in the run up to this week. Greek Street – the old location of the gallery, and now commonly known as the Lazarides shop – will be hosting ‘”The Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade”, where Faile are teaming up […]

Video: David Ellis “Musical Trash” Installation

David Ellis must be one of the most versatile artists out there with his multifaceted approach to art. You may remember his work as a street artist in the impressive “graffiti-animation” video he did with Blu at the Fame Festival last year. Or perhaps you enjoyed his gallery work for New Image Art last summer? What stands out most for us recently though was the the huge trash sound installation we experienced that he created for the Anonymous Gallery booth at the SCOPE art fair […]

Bumblebee Installation @ Thinkspace

If you remember, AM last hung out with Bumblebee last year, as he placed one of his signature phonebooth installations on the streets of LA. Well, he’s taken it a step further with this pretty cool installation in the front alcove of Thinkspace for the “A Cry For Help” show (covered). Take a look at some more additional photos after the jump…

Openings: “A Cry for Help” @ Thinkspace

A couple weeks ago, Thinkspace hosted “A Cry For Help,” a show that donated part of the proceeds to support Born Free USA & the Animal Protection Institute. Featuring a long list of great artists like Josie Morway (seen above), the show was partially curated by our friend Amanda aka Commandax from Erratic Phenomena. We must say after seeing the show in person that there were many unusually strong works from most of the artists that are not always seen in group shows, so definitely check […]
