Teaser: Scott Campbell – “Noblesse Oblige” @ OHWOW (LA)

In his first ever exhibition on the West Coast, as well as first true solo since taking NYC by storm last summer with If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long (covered) and burning an entire body of work in Mexico last fall, Scott Campbell will have the distinct honor of being the first artist to have his way with the virgin white walls of OHWOW’s brand new permanent Los Angeles space, as the Miami institution stakes claim to and makes their presence be known in […]

Basel Week Miami ’10 – The Island

During the week of Art Basel Miami Beach, there are countless fairs to check out, parties to attend, street and public art to peruse, and fashionable people to gaze at. Although the city facilitates much of this with its warm weather in December and abundant day and night venues, it doesn’t make much use of Miami’s natural habitat and scenic wonders.  Many who visit during Art Basel never even get to see a single wave or put on a pair of flip-flops.  Enter The Island. […]

Basel Week Miami ’10 – KAWS Book Signing @ The Standard Hotel

As we reported earlier in the week, The Standard Miami served as ground zero today for a more intimate, less rushed signing of KAWS’ new book with Rizzoli, where guests were invited to sit down with the artist and share some time. Partnering with OHWOW, the local gallery who seemingly has their hands in everything special going on during Art Basel Week, the swanky pop-up shop was ripe with exclusively published art books, a selection of artwork and custom products only offered for the weekend […]

Teaser: Basel Week Miami ’10 – The Island

Art collectors who are fans of the show Lost might just have their dream come true with this just revealed art project planned for Art Basel Week in Miami. Aptly dubbed The Island, those lucky enough to attend will be whisked away by motorboat from docks at the Mondrian Hotel to Flagler Memorial Island in Biscayne Bay for a first of it’s kind beachfront exhibition and sculpture park. Organized by Shamim M. Momin of non-profit art organization Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND) together with Aaron […]

Teaser: Basel Week Miami ’10 – “It Ain’t Fair” @ OHWOW

As Art Basel Miami Beach continues to strengthen it’s foothold as one of the premiere global contemporary art fairs, South Beach native OHWOW will yet again be an important player in the week’s festivities with their third installment of the now famous It Ain’t Fair. With many of the local gallery’s own roster of artists, along with many returning cross-genre art superstars from last years ambitious showing (covered), the annual well-endowed group exhibition will be required viewing for all traveling down to The Sunshine State […]

Showing: Tim Barber – “Untitled Photographs” @ OHWOW

Over the weekend, Tim Barber’s first major US solo exhibition opened triumphantly at OHWOW in Miami. Well-known as the former photo editor of famed Vice Magazine, as well as mastermind behind the innovative tinyvices online gallery where up-and-coming talent is showcased, Barber’s own artistic vision takes center stage with Untitled Photographs, a collection of lyrical images as conceptually captivating as they are technically distinctive. Much like his contemporaries Dash Snow and Ryan McGinley (with whom the artist is close friends), the New York-based photographer is […]

Openings: Neck Face – “Into Darkness” @ OHWOW (LA)

With wall to wall people and a line wrapped around the block, Neck Face proved for the second straight Halloween just why his nightmarish art and the pagan holiday are such a fitting marriage. OHWOW truly pulled out all the stops for the street artist’s Southern California homecoming exhibition, Into Darkness (previewed), where rowdy costume clad attendees enjoyed plenty of tricks and plenty of treats, including the obligatory haunted house to commemorate the evening as well as a full halfpipe and skate demonstration and plenty […]

Preview: Neck Face – “Into Darkness” @ OHWOW (LA)

With violent imagery and crude commentary, all wrapped up in a huge ball of satire, Neck Face will be triggering our collective fears with his newest solo exhibition, Into Darkness (teased). Opening on Halloween Sunday, the street artist has brought together an impressive collection of gouche and watercolor drawings, acrylic and enamel paintings and mixed media sculptures to OHWOW’s Hollywood pop-up gallery. A full-scale haunted house and skate demo will nicely round out the presentation for attendees, bringing the experiences into the fourth-dimension. If last […]

Teaser: REDU HOMEROOM @ Reed Space (NY)

It appears REDU will be continuing the hot streak of standout art events in the name of educational reform with REDU HOMEROOM. Aiming to “rethink public education by putting creativity and innovation back in the classrooms”, the pervasive non-profit will be teaming up OHWOW and Staple Design, as well as an extensive cast of corporate supporters including Bing, The New York Times, CAA Foundation and many more, to bring Manhattan’s Lower East Side a unique two-week artistic and fundraising event with 100% of the proceeds […]

Teaser: Neck Face – “Into Darkness” @ OHWOW (LA)

This Halloween, the City of Angles might as well be renamed the City of Demons in honor of Neck Face’s newest solo, Into Darkness. In what seems to be a perennial affair with Miami-based OHWOW, the notoriously enigmatic street artist will conjure the nightmarish iconography synonymous with the fall holiday – as well as his own art – in his trademarked sinister, satirical fashion. Just last year, the artist terrorized South Beach with his ghoulish imagery in a dramatic exhibit, comprised of works on paper […]
