One of the satellite fairs we visited first during New York’s Armory Week is Volta. This unique event does not showcase a sampling of a diverse roster of artists like most booths, but instead the invited gallerists select one artist to focus on. This results in a memorable way to keep the viewer’s attention as they run through the aisles focusing on one gallery and discovering a single artist at a time. Photo credit: AK for Arrested Motion.

This Saturday night, March 8th, the Last Rites in New York will be presenting a group exhibition where 40 artists were asked to interpret the gallery’s namesake. The ancient ritual which dates back centuries in Catholicism continues to be practiced in modern times on those about to die and has been a concept seen in the work of many artists in the past. Appropriately, this show will inaugurate a new location for the showspace (325 W 38th St #1 NYC 10018) so add it to your list of […]

Tomorrow night, Anonymous Gallery in New York will present the first solo exhibition of artist Pryce Lee. Entitled Single Shot, this show consists of transformative works that focus on life, death and the human experience. The 15 “single shots” on display will provide the opportunity for attendees to be both viewer and viewed simultaneously, forcing objectivity and contemplation while becoming a part of the artist’s subject matter. Depicted through specific acts of gun violence, this work further explores how singular moments, for better or worse, alter an […]

Jonathan LeVine Gallery is currently showing the NYC debut solo by the French artist Ludo (interviewed). Titled Fruit of the Doom, the show is built around the idea of displaying the results of the human race’s actions in the natural world. With clever manipulation of familiar brand logos and recognizable imagery, subtle use of slogans and statements, the new works stay true to Ludo’s signature concept of morphing natural and man made elements. Combined with his inspiration by the DIY punk/skate culture from the 90s, which is also […]
Coming up on March 7th, Logan Hicks will be opening a new show in New York at a special pop-up location (154 Stanton Street) for PMM Art Projects. Love Never Saved Anything will feature figurative and nautical based work from the master stencilist, deviating somewhat from the architectural imagery we have seen from him in the past. Also on display will be some of the amazing photos he has taken from his urban explorations. He explains his new stencil work – “The drifting, the weightlessness was […]
Last month, AM paid a visit to the Mary Boone Gallery in Chelsea to enjoy new works from Tomoo Gokita. Working exclusively in shades of black and white for this exhibition, the Japanese painter has created a series of textured portraits that pay homage to the “dated archetypes lifted of pulp fiction, Hollywood rags, and film noir” with names like Showgirl, Geisha Girl, A Bathing Beauty, Cocktail Pianist from Acapulco, Daughter of a Fraudster, and A Female Spy. Take a look at our photos below and stop by […]
