The Pierogi Gallery impresses again with Tony Fitzpatrick’s latest exhibition The Other Kind. Fitzpatrick is a talented playwright, performer, radio personality, with a natural ability for the visual arts. The show focuses on the artist’s obsessive collage work, loaded with iconic graphic imagery.
Normal, everyday activities are pretty boring to photograph. There’s a woman doing her laundry. And there are some ballerinas striking a pose. But now, imagine viewing those mundane photos as displayed in the world’s only underwater art gallery. Works by Andreas Franke are on display 27 meters underwater on sunken ship USNS General Hoyt S.Vandenberg, only reachable if you know [...]
The inspiration may be water, but the Roca London Gallery designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, with its minimalistic undulating contoured walls and neutral, monochromatic hues, is so other-worldly that it calls to mind a spaceship instead. Even the tiles have wavy edges. Most of the galley’s furniture, from the reception desk to shelves, are made of glass-reinforced plastics.
Situated at Venice and La Cienega, Venice 6114 is a hidden gem amongst Culver City’s more established galleries. Run by Sergio Bromberg, the gallery shuns the traditional white cube space adopted by its neighbors. Instead it uses the locale, which still retains the facade and feel of the mechanics garage it once was, as a shell to transform into whatever environment is necessary for the featured artist.

As a cultural phenomenon, Street Art has become something more akin to a stadium rap/rock concert than the sparsely attended pictures on walls model which has served as the Art World’s signature profile for some time now.
Brooklyn’s appeal is fairly well represented by Glasslands Gallery. A dingy side street of in-progress factories-turned-lofts holds this venue by night, and a gallery always. With a fluffy pink cloud awning protruding over the stage, and a balcony built from trees and bike parts, its scenery alone sets it apart. Depending on the night, anything [...]
Chicago used to be well-known for its many small theaters, which offered almost week-long incursions into the arts. But things change, and so does the city. In this case, Gallery Narcisse has transformed (and transported) from one part of the city to another, becoming Gallery Provocateur, voted Best Little Gallery in Chicago 2012. Provocateur, difficult [...]
Miami OHWOW Art Gallery has just opened the doors to its first book club and it’s truly a reader’s nirvana. Located in New York’s Greenwich Village, the micro store resides underneath an historic brownstone building at 227 Waverley Place and features striking decor designed to resemble a classic black and white, pre-war New York City [...]
