Solo exhibition by Jake & Dinos Chapman “Chicken”

Posted February 18th by in Art


The PinchukArtCentre (Kyiv, Ukraine) presents the first solo exhibition of Jake & Dinos Chapman in Ukraine titled Chicken. At the center of the exhibition stands the major new installation entitled, The Sum of all Evil (2013) that forms a synthesized reflection upon the central themes such as the Holocaust, violence, and death. Alongside this, the exhibition will include a number of iconic works by the Chapman brothers whose sharp subversive humour and unbridled aggression provokes controversy and questions moral contemporary taboos. Chicken will be on view until April 21, 2013 at The PinchukArtCentre, Baseina St, 2, Kiev, Київська, Ukraine


NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star

Posted February 18th by in Art


Centering on 1993, the exhibition is conceived as a time capsule, an experiment in collective memory that attempts to capture a specific moment at the intersection of art, pop culture, and politics. The social and economic landscape of the early ’90s was a cultural turning point both nationally and globally. Conflict in Europe, attempts at peace in the Middle East, the AIDS crisis, national debates on health care, gun control, and gay rights, and caustic partisan politics were both the background and source material for a number of younger artists who first came to prominence in 1993. This exhibition brings together a range of iconic and lesser-known artworks that serve as both artifacts from a pivotal moment in the New York art world and as key markers in the cultural history of the city. On view now until May 26, 2013 at The New Museum, 235 Bowery New York, NY. See more photographs after the jump.  [CLICK HERE...]

Jean-Michel Basquiat @ Gagosian Gallery

Posted February 15th by in Art


Featuring over fifty works from public and private collections, the exhibition spans Basquiat’s brief but meteoric career, which ended with his death at the age of twenty-seven. Thirty years after Larry Gagosian first presented his work in Los Angeles, twenty years after the first posthumous survey at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1992–93), and eight years after the Brooklyn Museum of Art retrospective (2005), viewers will have a fresh opportunity to consider Basquiat’s central role in his artistic generation as a lightning rod and a bridge between cultures. On view until April 6, 2013 at Gagosian Gallery, 555 West 24th Street New York, NY

Alexandros Vasmoulakis Figures @ LeBasse Projects

Posted February 13th by in Art


LeBasse Projects presents a solo exhibition by multi-disciplinary artist Alexandros Vasmoulakis. The exhibition will feature muralist and installation artist Vasmoulakis’ new series, entitled Figures, comprised of compelling figural work partly inspired by the tradition of portraiture. Vasmoulakis’ paintings contain many layers—physically, in terms of their thick impasto and textural buildup of paint, and also metaphorically. At the outset, the figures are smiling, a nod to the traditional purpose of portraiture as a showcase of one’s ideal or idealized comportment. However, the grinning and laughing expressions are menacingly exaggerated and recall the distorted visages of tortured souls in Francis Bacon’s deeply psychological portraits and self-portraits. In the case of Vasmoulakis’ personas, the turmoil does not come from an inner psyche, but from the outside influences of contemporary society, consumer culture and the media machine as the figures vapidly laugh, pose and posture. Alexandros Vasmoulakis Figures will be on view until February 23, 2013 at Le Basse Projects, 6023 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA
