Preview: “Hi Fructose 5th Anniversary Show” @ Copro Gallery

Just like Jonathan LeVine Gallery last month (covered), Hi-Fructose is celebrating their five year anniversary with a group show with artists that have been featured in their publication since the very beginning. With so many great artists included, there are bound to be some great pieces like the piece above from Mia (interviewed). The show opens on Saturday, March 13th at Copro Gallery. Full list of […]

Streets: D*Face x Oscars

UK street artist D*Face (featured) recently stopped by Los Angeles to install some well-timed “Zombie Oscar Statues” last week. The two seven foot sculptures were installed in two locations – atop Runyon Canyon and in the parking lot of the famous Mel’s Drive-In in Hollywood near where the 82nd annual Academy Awards (Oscars) were being held at the Kodak Theatre. Our friend, Jeremy Kaplan (GM of Subliminal Projects) was along for the ride as D*Face worked his version Hollywood magic. The two installations were explained in detail […]

Openings: Asia Top Gallery Hotel Art Fair (Hong Kong)

With stunning views of the Hong Kong harbor and skyline in the background, the third installment of the Asia Top Gallery Hotel Art Fair (a rather cumbersome name that surprisingly isn’t an acronym) opened last weekend at the Grand Hyatt. After successful exhibitions at the New Otani Hotel, Tokyo (2008), and the Grand Hyatt, Seoul (2009), the organizers naturally moved on to another major metropolitan – Hong Kong. Take a look at all the photos some familiar faces as well as some new talent after […]

Weekend Chelsea Art Walk, Part 1

New York City is currently digging out from yet another snowstorm. But last weekend, the weather in New York was beautiful, and luckily, we took advantage of the brief window of sun to spend the day strolling around Chelsea popping in and out of art galleries. And even more luckily, we saw lots of amazing art – so much so that it was too much to talk about in just one post. So, enjoy part 1 of our virtual Chelsea stroll today, and check back […]

Preview: The 2010 Whitney Biennial

Art critic Charlie Finch just posted on artnet one of the first reviews of the 2010 Whitney Biennial, which officially opens tomorrow. As each Biennial is an attempt to take the pulse of contemporary art in America, it is usually a challenging show, spanning all mediums, which typically offers at least something of interest for any art lover. However, it seems that Finch thinks a little more highly of this Biennial, ending his review “This is not only the greatest of Whitney Biennials, it is […]
