Starting January 16th, the Fridman Gallery in New York will have works on display from a group exhibition entitled They Sicken Of The Calm Who Know The Storm. Curated by Maureen Sullivan, the show will feature works from Greta Alfaro, Julia Chiang, Richard Garet, Naama Tsabar, Dustin Yellin, and Pryce Lee (seen above) with his shattered mirror work.

Back in November, Swoon (interviewed) led a project entitled Braddock Tiles aimed to revitalize a Lutheran church from the early 20th century. Superchief Gallery and the Anita Shapolsky Foundation hosted an evening of celebration and launched the project with a series of prints and original works also contributed by ROA, RETNA, Dennis McNett and more.
We stopped by Kelsey Brookes‘ first solo exhibition recently in New York at Judith Charles Gallery. Entitled Better Living Through Chemistry, this show features a large body of work focusing in on his abstract paintings and musings via eye catching molecular structures. This style is also based on his scientific background and delves further into drugs and its effect on the human consciousness. The paintings, large and small in scale, filled the two floor gallery space and is pretty psychedelic to experience in person. This show runs […]

By now, you’ve all heard the monumental buzz that this Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition I Who Have Arrived In Heaven has created with lines that exponentially grew from 30-45 mins to 4-6 hours in the course of less than a month. Mind you, art lovers endured near freezing NYC weather to take in the one minute zen experience of being one on one with Kusama’s Souls of Millions of Light Years Away (experienced here) infinity room installation. What many may not have known is that powerhouse gallery David Zwirner gave […]
Like last year, the annual exhibition dedicated to cult movies will be opening in a pop-up space in New York as the LA-based Gallery 1988 brings one of their most popular shows again to the Big Apple.

Last month, we stopped by the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York to check out a new showing from Mike Leavitt (interviewed) entitled Empire Peaks. Showing alongside Riusuke Fukahori’s work, which also had a three-dimensional feel to it, the new body of work from the Seattle-based Leavitt featured a mashup of historical figures and Star Wars characters, something we gave you a glimpse of in our earlier studio visit. Take a look at some photos of the new sculptures, like the Ghandi x Yoda figure above… Discuss Mike Leavitt here.
The Joshua Liner Gallery in New York recently opened a solo exhibition from Kris Kuksi entitled Revival. The intricate and complex sculptural works from the Kansas-based artist plays a perfect contrast to the deceptively simple works from Riusuke Fukahori, who is concurrently showing in the same gallery. Kuksi’s mixed media assemblages explore the dark sides of the human psyche with ornate representations created from model kits and other materials that he has re-appropriated. His works need to be seen in person to be fully appreciated, but for those unable […]
A couple weeks ago, AM stopped by the Jonathan LeVine Gallery to check out new works from AJ Fosik collectively entitled Against The Infinite. Inspired by The Denial of Death, a 1973 Pulitzer Prize-winning work of psychology and philosophy by Ernest Becker, the new sculptural works explore the idea that humanity has an “inherent struggle between its dualistic nature—a physical self and a symbolic self.” Along with free-standing works, there is also an installation piece from the Portland-based artist that is comprised of 30 individual animal faces […]
