As if there weren’t enough things already to do in NYC this Armory weekend, two of our favorite artists, Jose Parla and Marcel Dzama, have book signing events scheduled for this Saturday. Dzama will be at David Zwirner between 4-6pm to sign copies of his past publications, as well as his latest book Behind Every Curtain, released as part of his current show of the same name at the gallery (c0vered). Parla will be signing his new book, Walls, Diaries, and Paintings, released in conjunction […]
New York is a lot of work… especially when the Armory is in town – the busiest week of art in North America after Basel Miami of course. We caught the VIP preview to bring you a detailed first look at the flagship Armory fair. You’ll definitely see many blue chip names, but to our delight we also found many new comers. Check it all after the jump.
Tondo… That was the word of the week that Honor Fraser taught us about their Armory booth featuring Kaws. Tondo is the term for the round canvases which dazzled passerby’s at the blue chip art fair. At the center of the showcase, an impressive “Tondo Wall” was created using 21 round canvases. Each piece featured a different expression set in a distinct minimalist fashion and together the installation worked to convey a possible sequence or gamut of emotion. Conceptually, it seems that Kaws is integrating […]
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.
With Armory Week in New York set to start tomorrow, we wanted to let you know about a couple more artists to look out for. Take a look at this floor piece for an install Richard Colman (interviewed) has planned for the V1 booth at VOLTA. If you remember, it looks like the same one he used for his immersive show at Guerrero Gallery back in October. Keep it locked on AM of course as we will be bringing you on-site coverage of all the […]
A special project taking place at this year’s Scope New York art fair is the Rebaroque Artist Series Sound Wall, a collaborative audio/visual installation featuring Rebaroque sound panels—art and design objects created from vintage fabrics and frames that include speakers through which you can play sound or music from an iPod or other device. Curated by the multi-talented Lori Zimmer, the Sound Wall will consist of unique pieces from a selection of 20 artists, including Tara McPherson, Ellis G, Gaia, Ian Kuali’i, Jonathan Viner, Mr. Kiji, Sharktoof and […]
In the first extensive display of work since his Paris solo last fall, Pay the Debt to Nature (covered), Brooklyn-based artist, KAWS, will only need to send his work over the bridge this time, destined for Honor Fraser’s booth at The Armory Show. The street art icon turned contemporary art mainstay will offer a solo presentation of his pop-infused minimalistic work with the Los Angeles gallery, including a collection of new paintings – like a series of abstract “button”-like round panels – as well a […]
Continuing our look at this year’s upcoming Armory Week in New York, we turn our attention to the Carmichael Gallery who will have a booth at the VOLTA satellite fair. The LA gallery will be presenting Family Room, a installation of new sculptural works from Mark Jenkins converting their space into an unconventionally furnished family room which will in turn be his commentaries on the institutions of family and home. Discuss Mark Jenkins here.
Following up on the sultry success of the first installment of Women: The Blacklight Paintings during Art Basel Week at South Beach’s Club Madonna (covered), Ryan McGinness will yet again be teaming up with Country Club and The Standard to initiate part two of the event-based project during this years Armory Week in New York. This time, fluorescent painted dancers will flock to the rooftop club Le Bain at The Standard NY, serving as the performance art backdrop to McGinness’ Blacklight Paintings. The impending party […]
