Artist FAILE’s Arcade Art Installation at Brooklyn Museum … New York City

Among the artworks at the landmark exhibition of the artist FAILE at the Brooklyn Museum this summer is a massive, immersive installation done in collaboration with the infamous Brooklyn-based street artist Bast. The work is titled the “The FAILE and BAST Deluxx Fluxx Arcade” and it takes up several of the museum’s galleries.

The arcade is of the old-school 1980s-era style with pinball machines, pixelly video games and foosball tables all designed by the artists. The arcade’s decor and games are an edgy, playful, and noisy cavalcade of the FAILE and BAST aesthetic.

In a separate gallery with foosball tables, all of the available surface space is adorned with black-light posters. The videogames were designed by the artists and include one wherein the players must spur the cycle of urban gentrification of a derelict neighborhood into one with shiny new luxury condos.

The exhibition runs through October 4th.

This fresh new artwork by artists Diana Garcia and Gabriel Specter at the Woodward Gallery’s Project Space (in front of the Ghost space) on Eldridge Street on New York’s Lower East Side. The work is on view through February 14, 2014. The wall is yet another space dedicated to curated street art, a trend that will keep growing and we love to see.

Fun with Chris Burden’s “1 Ton Crane Truck”

20131030-153856.jpg

We’ve been following the work of artist Chris Burden for a long time. We’re fans. Especially of some of his recent installation artwork like “Urban Light” LACMA and “Metropolis II” in Los Angeles, which we’ve posted about before. Burden has a new show at the New Museum in New York called “Extreme Measures,” and we’ve already gone to check it out a few times to re-experience the work (and have some photographic fun, too). The work pictured here is titled “1 Tone Crane Truck,” which is literally what you see.
