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 Stunning and Sublime “To Fly, To Drive” by Artist Marsha Pels

20130917-085924.jpg

This installation artwork by American artist Marsha Pels is stunning. The work is a sculptural piece in which two angelic, winged dogs made of translucent resin are illuminated from within and in the shown in the midst of ascending into the air while dragging a car engine behind them. This is one of most beautiful, sublime things we’ve seen in a very long time. The work is on view at the Parker’s Box gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York.

Contemporary Chinese Art … Liu Chuang’s “Love Stories”

20130913-142334.jpg

We love this recent artwork titled “Love Stories” by young Chinese artist Liu Chuang. The installation consists of a table stacked with worn copies of Chinese romantic pulp-fiction paperback books that were once part of a lending library. The photos here show the artwork as it appeared as part of the Shanghai-based Leo Xu Projects gallery space at the Frieze Art Fair New York earlier this year. – VC

Super Awesome “Adhocracy” Design Exhibition at the New Museum

Last weekend Global Graphica  paid a visit to a new design exhibition at the New Museum’s Studio 231. The show is titled “Adhocracy” and we can’t recommend it enough. It’s a fascinating survey of the work of designers, architects, hackers, makers, artists, technologists and programmers around the globe who are redefining design and how things are made and used. These practitioners are working either independently or collaboratively, in academia or within commercial or corporate organizations, and sometimes illegally, as part of a DIY underground of people who fix public infrastructure that local governments neglect. It’s also a look at how sustainability, re-use and recycling, open-source systems, life-hacking and the economics of design are being addressed. Among the highlights is a working 3D body scanner called “Be Your Own Souvenir” that feeds data to a 3D printer to make a resin model of a person, and a short film documenting a group who secretly broke into the Pantheon in Paris at night, where they staged film events, built their own secret members lounge, and fixed the broken clock atop the historic building, which hadn’t chimed in four decades.

Creepy “Linda, 2012” by Daniel Firman

Photographer Stephen Gill’s Photos of Removed Graffiti at FOAM Amsterdam

Last week we paid another visit to FOAM, the wonderful, influential photography museum in Amsterdam, where there is currently a major exhibition of photographs by Stephen Gill. Included in the show were several images from the British photographer’s “Covered or Removed” series, a collection of photos of urban spaces in the U.K. where graffiti has been scrubbed or painted over. Great stuff.

At the Frieze Art Fair in New York City

We’re at the second annual Frieze Art Fair in New York City today, an ambitious event started by influential U.K. art magazine Frieze. Below are some pictures of the venue, including pix of the dramatic entrance to the long, snaking tenets that house the event, which we got to via a ferry up the East River, and our Fair Map.

“Target” by Type A at Monique Meloche Gallery Booth … At the 2013 Armory Show

We love this neon artwork titled “Target” by Type A, which we spotted at the Monique Meloche gallery booth. Type A is the moniker for the collaboration of New York-based artists Andrew Bordwin and Adam Ames. The artwork is a rendering in neon light of the illustrated image of a gun-wielding thug used on the paper targets at police gun ranges.
