Preview: Scott Campbell – “If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long” @ OHWOW

As spring kicks into high gear, so does artist, Scott Campbell, in preparation for his first solo in NYC later this month (teased) with OHWOW Gallery. AM has received a few more preview images to tantalize the senses, including some more of Scott’s insanely intricate money stacks along with a couple sculptural works. Incorporating a variety of found objects, the mixed media works take aim at the Campbell’s roots as a tattoo artist, which a recent New York Times article highlights, by mimicking the type […]

Showing: Damien Hirst – “Cornucopia @ Oceanographic Museum of Monaco

Is it just us or is it a little ironic that Damien Hirst is showing at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, especially since included is one of his famous formaldehyde shark tanks (although this current specimen, a great white was apparently already dead, unlike the tiger shark that rocketed him to fame in 1992)? As we first told you about here, Hirst’s show, which will run through September, is a retrospective of his most famous pieces including spin paintings, skulls, and formaldehyde pieces, but none […]

Preview: Kris Kuksi – “Meticulous Engagements” @ Shooting Gallery

Kris Kuksi (covered) sent us some teaser images of two of the pieces he’ll have in his upcoming show with sculptor Christy Langer (previewed). Kris, who’s known to work furiously till the last minute making modifications to his elaborate and ornate assemblages, very well may have changed the pieces you see here by the time this goes to press; however, if this is any indication of what to expect from the artist, we’re rather excited to say the least. “Meticulous Engagements” will mark the two […]

Video: Shaquille O’Neal – “Size Does Matter” @ Flag Art Foundation

If you recall, we brought you some photos from the opening of “Size Does Matter” show curated by Shaquille O’Neal at the Flag Art Foundation. Now comes the video from PBS where Shaq was interviewed and talks about his three favorite pieces (Ron Mueck’s “Big Man”, Willard Wigan’s “Micro Shaq”, and some mini-elevators) among other things.  He also coined another nickname for himself – “Shaqasso.” Via Curated.

Armory Week ’10: Independent

Along with the Armory Show and the regular satellite fairs (Pulse, Scope, Volta), this year we also attended Independent – a new fair founded by Elizabeth Dee of the non-profit X Initiative and Darren Flook of London’s Hotel gallery. Even among a week packed with so much to see, Independent certainly stood out. For one, unlike the other fairs we attended, with labyrinthine rows and aisles packed with gallery booths, Independent was set up like a museum exhibition, with several floors of open space organically […]

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

It’s hard to believe it’s already been five years since one of our favorite magazines released their first issue.

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 […]
