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.
We paid a visit to the New York City studio of Polish artist and filmmaker Aleksandra Niemczyk a couple of months ago to view work in progress for an upcoming solo show, which opened last week at Galleri A in Oslo, Norway. The show is titled “Density – Urban Landscape” and draws heavily from the architectural environment of Niemczyk’s New York studio and specifically from Manhattan’s vertical urban landscape. Niemczyk’s work is abstract and minimalist, but exudes a warmth rescued from big-city density. The exhibition runs through September 22. Check it out if you’re in Oslo or see more of the show via Niemczyk’s blog.
There’s currently a massive survey exhibition of work by New York-based Swiss artist Urs Fischer at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. It’s a great show and among the works are these massive cut-outs of the walls between three of the museum galleries.
At the current 10-year anniversary exhibition at the Mori Art Museum at Roppongi Hills, in Tokyo, a gallery was devoted to a mini-retrospective of the futuristic, thought-provoking design and style of cult Japanese fashion brand Final Home.
