Showing: JR – “Women Are Heroes” (Nuit Blanche – Paris)

AM stopped by the Nuit Blanche festival in Paris and got to catch the tail end of JR and crew wheat pasting their ginormous photo installations for his “Women are Heroes” (previewed) show which is part of his 28 Millimetre project (We were wondering how he got to the lower parts of the bridges). We also took in the city via boat to tour the streets to enjoy the photographic installations that graced many parts of the “City of Love.” As mentioned previously, this phase […]

Video/Interview: JR – “Women Are Heroes” (Nuit Blanche – Paris)

Vernissage TV posted up a rare interview with JR about his “Women are Heroes” project in Paris that we told you about earlier. Included is some nice footage of the project that coincided with this year’s Nuit Blanche and really shows the impressive scale of JR’s vision. This phase of his 28 Millimetre project is unique in that it is the first time photos of women from all over the world (Africa, India, Cambodia, Brazil) have been wheatpasted in the same place. JR also developed a […]

Preview/Setup: JR – “Women Are Heroes” (Nuit Blanche – Paris)

Here’s a little behind the scenes look into JR’s preparation for his latest project: “Women Are Heroes” which is already in progress as he “re-does” structures in Paris in his signature bold fashion. This new project which officially opens Oct 3rd will coincide with the art festival Nuit Blanche in Paris (“All Nighter” in French) – an annual cultural event where all the museums and art spaces are open during one night and artists redecorate the city. It’s amazing to see the scale that JR […]

Openings: Ryan McGinley – “Moonmilk” @ Alison Jacques Gallery

The anticipation that has been built up over the past few months by Ryan McGinley, starting with his few teaser pieces at Art Basel, has finally culminated in the opening of his first solo show in over a year. Arguably the best photographer of his generation and one of the freshest talents today, McGinley debuted a exhibition of 24 new photographs ranging in size from the manageable 9″x14″ to the spectacularly impressive 110″x72″. More photos from opening night after the jump…

Fame Festival: Slinkachu

When we heard Slinkachu (street photographer and sculptor we first covered here) was included in this year’s lineup for FAME Festival, we were wondering how he would fit in with all the big murals that other artists were putting up all over the city. Apparently, he decided to go “big” as well in the form of the largest piece he has ever one. Looks like he put up this “laundry line” piece in one of the many alleyways of Grottaglie. Closer looks after the jump.

Preview: Kehinde Wiley – “Black Light” @ Deitch Projects

As seen with his lecture at The Getty in May (followed by his show at Roberts & Tilton), taking these photos of subjects off the street is the […]
