The New Modern Hair, an upcoming solo exhibition by Spanish artist Silvia Prada, is an artistic representation of the subtle nuances and cues that help define the male persona, identity and representation within the parameters of visual and popular culture. With her book The New Modern Hair: A Styling Chart as departure point, Prada has created a series of drawings, poster montages and large-scale murals, capturing the typecasting and idealized character building that has become ingrained in our minds through media, pop culture and iconography. An accompanying magazine and first issue of The New Modern Hair will be published by cultureEDIT and available February 1st at select retailers and newsstands worldwide. Featuring text by Miguel Figueroa, US Editor of Fanzine137, Candy and EY! Magateen. The New Modern Hair will be on view from January 18, 2013 to February 26, 2013 at the Pacific Design Center, 8687 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA

Frank Gehry, pictured left, at Gagosian Gallery’s opening of the presentation of his new Fish Lamps. The exhibition will be presented concurrently in Los Angeles and in Paris. Since the creation of the first lamp in 1984, the fish has become a recurrent motif in Gehry’s work, as much for its “good design” as its iconographical and natural attributes. In 2012 Gehry decided to revisit his earlier ideas, and began working on an entirely new group of Fish Lamps. The resulting works, which will be divided between Gagosians Los Angeles and Paris, range in scale from life-size to out-size, and the use of ColorCore is bolder, incorporating larger and more jagged elements. Frank Gehry Fish Lamps will be on view until February 14, 2013 at Gagosian Gallery in Paris and Beverly Hills.

Roberts & Tilton presents an exhibition of recent photographs by artist and skateboarder Ed Templeton in his fifth exhibition with the gallery. Templeton has long mined the middle ground between the public and the private, delving unreservedly into the human situation, creating photographs that are at once heartbreaking and outrageous, comical and sinister, his images, a visual litmus test of American youth culture in all its twisted luminescence. Ed Templeton Memory Foam will be on view until February 16 at Roberts and Tilton, 5801 Washington Blvd, Los Angeles, CA
The Hole presents a new solo exhibition by Kansas City-based artist Jaimie Warren. In photographs that explore different female stereotypes from both art history and celebrity culture, distorted through the internet’s bizarre juxtapositions, disposable imagery and memes, this new body of work features the artist and her friends in roles as diverse as Zsa Zsa Gabor, Easy E, The Virgin Mary, Lana Del Rey or Picasso’s Demoiselles D’Avignon. Jaimie Warren The Whoas of Female Tragedy II will be on view until February 2013, at The Hole, 312 Bowery St, New York, New York
