Openings: Dylan Egon – “Home of the Brave” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Coca-Cola, Marlboro, Rolex, Adidas, Fender and Leica – what do those brands have in common? The answer is artist Dylan Egon. His experience as a tabletop design consultant & product stylist combined with a deep knowledge in the history of design & retail products allows him to create the profound and interesting art installations that we saw at this exhibition. These nostalgic assemblages were created by Egon for Home of the Brave at Jonathan Levine Gallery which focuses on his love of Americana. Check out […]

Benefits: RxArt 2011 Gala

AM recently attended the annual RxArt benefit gala. The non-profit organization dedicated to placing original fine art (see Jeff Koons) in patient and examination rooms of hospitals have long garnered the staunch support from some other big names in art such as Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Yoshitomo Nara, Marilyn Minter and Ed Ruscha. This year the silent auction was once again filled with impressive original works from notables such as Nate Lowman, José Parlá, Matthew Brannon, Aurel Schmidt, Terry Richardson, Ed Templeton, Tim Barber, Robert […]

Streets: TrustoCorp – “Drive Through Liposuction” (Brooklyn)

This summer saw TrustoCorp truly spread their satirical wings with smart and assertive street interventions on both coasts, critiquing the ugliness of pop culture with signature wry wit and multiple campaigns in Los Angeles and New York. In perhaps their most humorous, most direct, and most popular intervention to date, a series of faux trash mags were planted at news stands in and around airports in LA and NYC. Now, as fall is about to set in, the Brooklyn-based collective once again targets vanity and […]

Preview: Lisa Yuskavage @ David Zwirner

Tonight at David Zwirner in New York, Lisa Yuskavage returns with a collection of mostly new paintings. As with her show last year in London, she continues to explore her portraitures of the female nude, all painted with her signature lush and erotic touch.  For this exhibiton, the NY-based artist also appears to incorporate more elements of landscape and still-life painting into her narrative including a large triptych, the first time for her in this format. More after the jump…

Openings: Richard Hambleton – “A Retrospective” @ Valmorbida x Phillips de Pury

AM recently caught the opening of Richard Hambleton’s A Retrospective at Phillips de Pury’s Park Avenue gallery space. The two floor location showcased a survey of Richard’s long history of working in both street and fine art with pieces dating back to 1982 on display including his classic shadow silhouettes to his more recent contemporary landscapes that he names “beautiful paintings.” Of course, much like the last opening hosted by Valmorbida, the fashion week event drew a mix of New York’s elite to catch this […]

Openings: “Reflections” @ fordPROJECT

Opening a couple weeks ago at Midtown Manhattan’s fordPROJECT was Reflections, a exhibition of three contemporary Japanese painters curated by fordPROJECT’s director Rachel Vancelette in collaboration with Tokyo’s Tomio Koyama Gallery. The highlight of the show for us was Hideaki Kawashima, who presented a mix of his newer style, more realistic paintings and his older style, more atmospheric ones, including a series of simple portraits that perfectly addressed the theme of reflection. Alongside Kawashima were two younger artists, Makiko Kudo and Toru Kuwakubo. Kudo’s work […]

Openings: Cope2 – “Last Legend” @ Bob’s Gallery

AM recently attended the opening of Bronx graffiti writer COPE2’s show at bOb Gallery. Entitled Last Legend, the hometown legend showcased a body of work with a different style as we have seen recently from his tour of duty in Los Angeles and Copenhagen. The show runs until September 30th, so stop by the LES to catch it. Check out the full set by Joe Russo  after the jump.

Openings: Brian Viveros – “Returning Art To The Unclean” @ Last Rites

Several weeks ago in New York, the impressive new paintings that we saw in-studio from Brian Viveros were finally displayed on the walls of the Last Rites Gallery. Entitled Returning Art To The Unclean, the new work all featured his portraiture of smoking hot femme fatales, posed and ready to do battle. For this show, many his “troops” sported tattoos, certainly appropriate for the setting, and as usual, Brian provided the appropriate head gear for them. As a bonus, the evening featured the Sunday Show […]

Showing: Do Ho Suh – “Home Within Home” @ Lehmann Maupin

Currently showing at Lehmann Maupin is Home Within Home, the latest exhibition by Korean artist Do Ho Suh. The show is centered around two amazing sculptural installations that each deal with the artist’s feelings of cultural displacement stemming from the time when he moved from Korea to the United States to study art. Suh physically represents the culture clash he experienced in the piece entitled Home Within Home: an incredibly detailed dollhouse version of his student home in Providence, RI, that has been partially destroyed […]
