The Miami Project successfully launched its second rendition during Basel week with a well-curated selection of U.S. galleries, including such notable names as Yossi Milo, Joshua Liner, Mark Moore, Richard Heller and David B. Smith. Located in the Wynwood Arts District, the young art fair focused on primary representation of emerging and mid-career artists, which was a nice counterpoint to its much larger neighbor, Art Miami. Overall, Miami Project was well-attended, and both galleries and collectors seemed very enthusiastic about the showing. Below is a […]
Next Saturday, Tomokazu Matsuyama will unveil a brand new body of work at Mark Moore. The Brooklyn-based artist is coming to Los Angeles for his first solo exhibition where he will continue the exploration of his dual US & Japanese heritage in his imagery. Fusing the two cultures together with his unique eye for color and patterns, Matsu is ready to take his works up another notch. The show opens on September 8th with the artist in attendance – so if you can make it out, […]
AM recently attended the opening of Go East at Joshua Liner Gallery. This unique collaborative effort between the JL and the West Coast-based Mark Moore Gallery brought a synergy we were expecting with a fresh showcase of talented artists such as Chad Person, Feodor Voronov, Kenichi Yokono and Yoram Wolberger. With this exhibition, NYC attendees were able to sample the artistic tastes that have established Mark Moore as a key gallery in the Los Angeles art scene. Coming up very soon, Joshua Liner will return the favor and curate Go West at the MM showspace. […]

LA’s Mark Moore Gallery recently opened their sixth annual Ultrasonic show, surveying emerging and mid-career artists. For this installment, the gallery tapped six artists – Theodora Allen, Sebastiaan Bremer, Alika Cooper, Mark Mulroney, Okay Mountain and Andrew Schoultz – whose work falls under the theme of appropriation. Texas artist collective Okay Mountain, who won the Pulse Prize at Pulse Miami in 2009 for their Corner Store installation, created a 12′ diameter white and grey wheel of fortune, similar to the one from the popular game […]
At this year’s Pulse NYC, LA’s Mark Moore Gallery showcased talented Belgian artist Cindy Wright. Wright’s work seems to follow from the long tradition of Dutch and Flemish still-life paintings, portraying simple objects illuminated upon a dark background. However, Wright’s compositions—like her showstopping painting of a glistening cube of uncooked chunks of bacon or another of a rotting piece of fruit—are at once realistic and abstract, beautiful and hideous, depending on how and from where the pieces are viewed. Take a look at other images […]
We always look forward to the Pulse art fair because it is one of the only opportunities for those outside of Tokyo or Los Angeles to see the stunning carved woodblocks of Japanese artist Kenichi Yokono. This year at Pulse Miami, Yokono’s work was jointly shown by LA’s Mark Moore Gallery and Vienna’s Hilger Contemporary. Along with the new black and red pieces we previewed before the fair, the two galleries showed several works from Yokono’s recent “Dreamy Gaze” series, which featured lovely young ladies […]
Los Angeles’ Mark Moore Gallery sent us a few preview images of works by Japanese artist Kenichi Yokono that will be shown at their booth at Pulse Miami 09. Yokono’s graphic and often grotesque woodblocks – which are carved and painted, but not printed – garnered him invitations to several of Takashi Murakami’s early Geisai fairs, but it wasn’t until Yokono’s self-sponsored installation at Pulse NYC 06 that he started getting attention outside of Japan. Since then, Yokono has shown several times with Mark Moore […]
