Jakob Kolding Blocks at 83 Grand Street 5 May - 11 June 2011 Opening Reception 5 May 6-8pm

Ako Castuera is a painter, sculptor, and textile artist. For Realms (art exhibition at Giant Robot 2 LA), she has turned her focus to work on paper with a variety of media, primarily using watercolor and gouache. The works continue her ongoing interest in land, the life within it, and the life it sustains. "Suburban tracts sprawl over hills and are at once picturesque, parasitic, and fragile. They coexist with dinosaur like animal forms that suggest prehistoric life," she says. "Dinosaurs have always inspired awe and fed fantasies of the past. Their extinction forces contemplation of the future, of what's in store for the land, animals, and humans all." Ako studied at CCA, and is based in Los Angeles where she works as a writer/storyboard artist on the animated television show, Adventure Time.
'Outside/In' The New Street Art featuring: Herakut, Case, Alexandros Vasmoulakis, Shark Toof and Bumblebee
April 23rd - May 30th, 2011 Opening Reception: Saturday, April 23rd, 2011, 7-10p
'Outside/In' opens at LeBasse Projects' Culver City Gallery and will feature a group of internationally-known contemporary street artists. The exhibition is running in conjunction with the Portsmouth Museum of Art in New Hampshire. After the LA opening the exhibition will continue to New Hampshire where the artists will showcase a separate series of paintings and will be traveling to paint a selection of walls throughout the city.
Artists were selected as representatives of the next-generation of street art, with a group that can be showcased equally in a museum as on the street. The international group will include Herakut (Germany), Case (Germany), Hush (UK), Alexandros Vasmoulakis (Greece), SharkToof (USA) and Bumblebee (USA).
Work from each of these artists will be shown in the museum - in addition, all will arrive in Portsmouth before the exhibition opens to create a series of outdoor murals that will become part of a permanent downtown walking tour. It is the addition of that special component that opens up the streets of Portsmouth as a living museum and allows the work to be shown in its true context.
Meet us at 7 Lemon for the Unveiling of "The Circle"
Saturday, April 23 > 2-4 PM
Level 7 Lemon at the top of the parking deck at Westfield Horton Plaza
Artist Chor Boogie and other experienced artists and youth from Writerzblok recently completed a 150-foot-wide by 18-foot-high public mural on the top level of Horton Plaza’s parking structure. The mural, made possible by a collaboration between MCASD, Writerzblok, and Westfield Horton Plaza, serves as a continuation of the discourse generated by Viva la Revolucion: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape, which featured works within the Museum’s downtown galleries as well as at public sites throughout San Diego.
Come celebrate the completion of this public installation and enjoy an afternoon of free food, beverages, and music. MCASD staff and members of the Teen Art Council will be on hand with chalk art activities, giveaways, and information about upcoming programs at the Museum.
The collaboration and resulting mural is made possible by a grant from The Legler Benbough Foundation. For more information about the mural, click here.
Based on the formal and conceptual rigor of their spoken word compositions, Barras and Demierre are unabashed moderns, picking up where the likes of Kurt Schwitters and Henri Chopin left off. Voicing Through Saussure (2004) is proof that the avant-garde, although historical, is plenty viable. What comes across as dry humor in the duo’s elegant and smart recordings, could only gain traction live.
This concert will take place in Bond Chapel located one building east of Cobb Hall on the main quadrangle. (1025 E. 58th St.)
Wow! What a crazy night. We attended the star studded 'Art in The Streets' artist reception at MOCA and it was overwhelming. While it was great to see so many friends under one roof at the same time, it was distracting to look at Banksy's work while Jake Gyllenhaal wandered about (too much eye candy)!
Art in the Streets is the first major U.S. museum survey of graffiti and street art. Curated by MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch and Associate Curators Roger Gastman and Aaron Rose, the exhibition will trace the development of graffiti and street art from the 1970s to the global movement it has become today, concentrating on key cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, and Sao Paulo, where a unique visual language or attitude has evolved. The exhibition will feature paintings, mixed media sculptures, and interactive installations by 50 of the most dynamic artists and will emphasize Los Angeles's role in the evolution of graffiti and street art, with special sections dedicated to seminal local movements such as cholo graffiti and Dogtown skateboard culture. A comprehensive timeline illustrated with artwork, photos, video, and ephemera will provide a historical context for the work.
The exhibition is worth a visit and closes on August 8.
New Image Art is pleased to announce LADYBOY, the highly anticipated solo show by Judith Supine, collagist of the psychedelic and surreal.
The exhibition features the artist’s newest and most ambitious work to date, showcasing more than twenty canvases and large-scale woodcut sculptures up to fourteen feet high. Supine has transformed the entire gallery into a personal installation space, covering every inch of floor, wall and ceiling with silk-screened wallpaper, his signature fluorescent colors and dreamlike narratives.
KATE OWENS CARRIERS WEDNESDAY 13TH APR - SATURDAY 21ST MAY 2011 PRIVATE VIEW - Thursday 14th Apr
There is an argument that contends that we only really become sensitive to a given object's characteristics - its truth - when it is no longer able to perform its prescribed function. According to this logic, the hammerness of a hammer becomes most apparent when we see it lying unused and broken - without a head or snapped by the stem.
Kate Owens asserts the possibility that a break, mark, glitch or rip offers a kind of conceptual freedom to an object. In this new series of works, Owens intertwines objects and materials, testing the properties of one item with the willfully incompatible properties of another, to create moments of unexpected consequence. These combinations push objects to the limit of their functionality in order to reveal their core attributes or weaknesses.
