Following directly on from Part 1 of our coverage of the busy Space//Form opening, AM now delves a little deeper pictorially into the artwork created for this huge group exhibition of 110 artists with a series of pictures where the art is more viewable (like the Mark Dean Veca installation above). To recap, all of the participating artists were given an identical 10×10 inch cradled timber panel by exhibition sponsor Ampersand as the medium to work on. The exhibition curator, Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis chose a brief […]

Last month, we took you onto the streets of Denver as we took a look at some of the pieces Shepard Fairey left in his wake as a show featuring work from him, Evan Hecox, and Jim Houser was held at the Black Book Gallery. We now have photos from that opening as art fans checked out Shep’s iconic imagery, Hecox’s textured multimedia works, and Houser’s installation-based pieces. Enjoy the full photo set below.

As the opening of the Space//Form group exhibition draws ever nearer, and following on from our studio view, AM brings you a glimpse of some of the work in this huge show. Over 100 artists are participating in the exhibit, which opens on 6th September at Breeze Block Gallery in Portland. The artists were each given the same brief and the same materials to work with and asked to explore and represent their interpretation of space and form within either the natural or built environment. Each piece of […]
One of the most interesting things about curating a group exhibition of over 100 artists is getting to see behind the scenes as the artists develop their work for the show (Chloe Early seen above). Updates come constantly as the participants share their excitement about creating work for the show, and getting to see some of the creative process that goes into the work is always a pleasure. Space//Form opens in just a couple of weeks time now in Portland at Breeze Block Gallery and here […]
Following our recently curated group exhibitions in Hong Kong; East West Connect and Los Angeles; City of Fire, AM’s UK correspondent Sven Davis has branched out with his own curatorial endeavour Space//Form. The group exhibition brings together over 100 young contemporary artists, and opens 6th September at Portland’s Breeze Block Gallery. Curator, Sven Davis, has worked in architecture for over 20 years, so the thematic center of the exhibition is close to his heart as Space//Form centers around notions of the architectural landscape. Each of the […]
Another show we visited in Culver City on Saturday night was Jim Houser’s showing at LeBasse Projects. Featuring meticulously constructed installations of his paintings and sculptural items, As Quiet As Itʼs Kept put on display the Philly artist’s signature patchwork of favorite items, creatures, words, symbols that for this exhibition was inspired by the impact of fatherhood and explores and the new responsibilities faced. Take a look at more photos from the opening by ©Carlos Gonzalez after the jump…
We last had the pleasure of seeing one of Jim Houser’s installations about a year back at last year’s Armory Week in New York. Now, as it was back then, we are still intrigued by the Philadelphia-based artist’s use of his own brand of symbology and visual language. Fans in Los Angeles will get the opportunity to witness for themselves on Saturday night, March 10th, as Houser (you can see a glimpse of him setting up above) will be opening his As Quiet As Itʼs Kept exhibition […]
Jonathan LeVine Gallery’s entry to this year’s VOLTA art fair during this year’s Armory Week was artist Jim Houser. The Philly-based artist was in full effect as he brought a beautiful collection of fresh works that spanned an array of sizes and mediums. Much like his last show at Subliminal Projects, Mr. Houser took time customizing the booth with his unique installations including his custom soundtrack. Check it out after the jump.
Showing with Jonathan LeVine at the VOLTA satellite fair (also see Mark Jenkins & Richard Colman) at this year’s Armory Week will be Jim Houser. Judging from all the setup action we see, attendees can look forward to very nice installation which is typical for the Philadelphia-based artist (ie last year’s Subliminal Projects show). AM loves his quilt-like blocks of imagery and look forward to seeing new symbology added to his lexicon.
