Openings: Ryan McGinley – “Animals” @ Team Gallery NY

Last week, photographer Ryan McGinley opened shows simultaneously at Team Gallery’s two New York locations entitled Animals & Grids. We will focus first on the showing on Grand Street where McGinley continued his portraiture featuring nude models interacting with live animals. The artist visited various sanctuaries, zoos, and rescue establishments across the United States, erecting a mobile studio where he collaborated with animal trainers to pose subjects (animal and humans) in bizarrely seductive and symbiotic compositions.

Update: JR x Jose Parla – “Wrinkles of the City” (Cuba) Part III

By now, you will have seen photos from the intriguing collaboration between JR (featured) and Jose Parla on the walls of Havana. Parla, with his Cuban roots, seems like the perfect partner in crime for the TED winning French artist as calligraphic stylings of the first meld seamlessly with the stark photos of the second. This next phase of JR’s Wrinkles Of The City project will coincide with the 11th Havana Biennial 2012 and feature photos from a previous trip to Cuba that the duo took back in […]

The space on Grand Street will host the NY-based photographer’s growing body of work, Animals, which features his studio portraits of nude models with live animals, leading to a sometimes unpredictable result in an otherwise controlled setting.

Openings: Olek & David Peterson – “Synthetic Nature” @ Krause Gallery

AM recently attended the Olek’s latest show at New York City’s Krause Gallery. Yes, we said NYC. The rogue urban crocheter was out on bail from the UK and returned to her hometown to do a show with David Peterson entitled Synthetic Nature. For this special event, Olek ditched her signature yarn and utilized balloons. Using synthetic rubber, she built an cave installation by weaving semi-inflated balloons in a way that would make even Krusty the Clown blush. Designed to obscure the viewer’s vision, the cave is […]

The Hole Gallery continues to push the edge as their latest collaborative project between E.V. Day and Kembra Pfahler opened up this past Friday to a packed house.

Inspired by the lily padded ponds located on the estate, E.V. invited Pfahler to the actual garden to shoot the photos in this exhibition. And, through Playboy’s sponsorship, the gallery was transformed into a living breathing garden […]
